Southampton Town Police arrested a Sag Harbor acupuncturist Saturday, July 12, on charges that he sexually abused a female patient he was treating.

Michael P. Gohring, 64, a resident of Sag Harbor since 1987, was arrested at his Noyac Road business in the village. A patient told police that the licensed acupuncturist sexually abused her during an appointment.

Mr. Gohring was charged with Aggravated Sexual Abuse in the second degree, a Class C Felony. He was held overnight at Southampton Town Police Headquarters in Hampton Bays and arraigned Sunday, July 13, at Southampton Town Justice Court, then remanded to Suffolk County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail, police said in a press release issued Wednesday, July 16.

Mr. Gohring offers acupuncture and comprehensive oriental medicine and was voted “Best of the Best” Acupuncturist in the Hamptons by Dan’s Papers’ Readers’ Poll in 2013. According to police, he uses the first name Mikal for his business.

Police ask that anyone with related information call the Southampton Town Detective Unit at (631) 702-2230.
