Both alleged assaults took place at Corbin’s Brea office, Corbin Plastic Surgery.

The women reported the incident to the Brea Police Department and Corbin turned himself in to authorities on Tuesday, the District Attorney's office said.

"Patients entrust their very lives to the doctors who treat them," said Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer. "No one seeking medical treatment should have to worry about being sexually assaulted while under a doctor’s care. These women were in very vulnerable situations and their doctor capitalized on those vulnerabilities for his own sexual gratification."

Corbin faces a maximum sentence of five years in state prison.

Anyone with additional information was asked to call Detective Ryan Trent at the Brea Police Department at 714-990-7618.
