OLYMPIA – The Washington State Chiropractic Quality Assurance Commission suspended the license of Snohomish County chiropractor Kenneth E. Parker (CH.00034069) pending further legal action.

Parker’s license has been suspended since February 23, 2021, under an earlier agreed order based on allegations of sexual misconduct. The current charges allege that Parker continued to practice while suspended, and inappropriately touched a patient while providing chiropractic treatment. On April 1, 2022, Parker was convicted of four counts of indecent liberties, a felony, in Snohomish County Superior Court.

The current charges and suspension ensure that Parker cannot return to practice by completing the requirements of the earlier agreed order.

Parker has 20 days to request a hearing to contest the charges and the suspension.
