What Constitutes Abuse or Inappropriate Conduct?

Dr. James Heaps, a former Gynecologist and Oncologist who worked with cancer patients and students at UCLA for nearly 30 years, has been arrested and charged with sexually abusing patients. 

The school and prosecutors announced charges involving his conduct with two patients at UCLA Health in 2017 and 2018 against Dr. James Heaps on Monday, June 9, 2019, the same day he surrendered to law enforcement.

If you were a patient of Dr. James Heaps


Heaps, 62, treated patients in the student health center from 1983 to 2010, and was hired at UCLA Health Center as an OB/GYN in 2014. He also held staff privileges at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center from 1988 to 2018. The school acknowledged that it received its first complaint against Heaps for inappropriate and medically unnecessary touching and comments back in 2014 soon after he was hired. However, UCLA waited four years to remove him from practice and move to fire him, triggering his decision to retire. The school also waited four years to report him to law enforcement and the state medical board.

*** All inquiries are absolutely confidential. California law allows victims of sexual abuse or assault to bring lawsuits anonymously, under a pseudonym. California also allows the claims of out-of-state residents to be made in its state courts and lack of U.S. citizenship is also not a barrier to civil lawsuit recovery.

That is not acceptable. Women that were seen by Dr. James Heaps should request a free, 100% anonymous consultation with a sexual harassment attorney. Please do not be silent. File a claim now.
