A Chicago eye doctor was arrested Wednesday and accused of videotaping women in the restroom of his office.

58-year-old Robert Weiss is accused of recording four different women in bathrooms.

The doctor allegedly recorded the women at his office in Illinois Masonic Hospital and another office in the 6 Corners shopping district.

Dr. Kathleen Shea, a representative of the Chicago Eye Institute, would not comment on Weiss’s employment status with the institute. She said in a statement that the institute “is dedicated to the well being and safety of its patients and its employees and whenever an issue arises that conceivably poses a risk, the institute acts promptly to thoroughly investigate and address any and all aspects of the problem.”

When asked whether Weiss still worked at the institute, she declined to answer but said, “We have taken measures to ensure that the statement I read to you is true.”
