LI chiropractor charged with forcibly touching 3 patients

A Long Island chiropractor who was arrested in October for allegedly sexually abusing a 16-year-old girl is now facing new charges of inappropriately touching three other female patients during exams.

Ronald Bernardini, 65, was arrested Saturday after the trio of former patients at his Lake Ronkonkoma practice contacted cops and accused him of being a perv during appointments they had between February 2021 and last October, Suffolk County police said

They came forward after the senior was arrested for sexually abusing the 16-year-old, who told her parents that Bernardini forcibly touched her breasts during an examination, News 12 reported.
