June 4, 2018 – The Los Angeles Times last month published an article on what prosecutors are calling Tyndall’s nearly 3 decade reign of terror on female students at USC, the magnitude of which is only now coming to light. Women there allege Tyndall:
- Made them get naked for all full-body exams
- Photographed their genitals
- Made lewd comments about the tightness of their vaginal muscles
- Inappropriately penetrated them with his fingers during pelvic examinations.

What’s the Problem?
Since the LA Times published the initial article, more than 400 people have called a special hotline that handles complaints about Tyndell, and at least 52 cases of “sexual misconduct” have officially been filed (39 from the hotline and 13 who contacted the police).
Tyndall continues to deny any wrongdoing, and claims to have been aware of just a singe complaint against him prior to 2016, by a student who claims he didn’t wear his gloves during an exam.
“Patients sometimes fabricate stories,” Tyndall said in a letter to the Times.
Right now, the LAPD says its investigation is centered on determining whether criminal acts were committed against the accusers, but it has not ruled out widening the scope of inquiry to include USC staff and administrators who knew about the complaints against Tyndall.
Officials at USC have confirmed that documented complaints against Tyndall, who began working there in 1989, go back to at least the early 2000s.
Tyndall was fired in 2016, after a nurse whose pleas about sexual misconduct had fallen on deaf ears, took her case to the school’s rape crisis center, and his co-workers found a box of photo of patients’ genitals in his office, some of which appeared to be shot at the university’s old clinic back in 1990 and 1991. USC has said it’s unclear why Tyndall remained in his position for as long as he did.
