Prosecutors say he had sexual contact with two patients at Albany Chiropractic on New Scotland Avenue -- one in February, the other in August.

One of the victims was in court for the sentencing and didn't want to hide her face or identity as she spoke.

"I cancelled so many needed doctor's appointments, because how could I trust another healthcare professional when one had already violated me," wondered Dorie Viovannetti. "I began this journey as a victim of sexual assault. I will continue this journey as a survivor of sexual assault."
