Dr. Don Underwood, Alleged Tot-Tickler N.D., Likely Person Seen in Video Showering With 9-Year-Old Boy

Dr. Don Underwood
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office confirms to New Times that detectives have recovered a video at the home of Dr. Don Underwood -- the Anthem naturopathic doctor (N.D.) accused of molesting a 9-year-old boy -- that shows a man and a boy taking a shower together.

The man, MCSO Lieutenant Brian Lee says, appears to be Underwood, and the boy, the 9-year-old victim.


Following his arrest yesterday, police seized three computers -- as well as the shower video -- from the home where Underwood lives with his mother. Lee says it appears Underwood is the one who recorded the video.

Underwood's been booked on seven counts of child molestation and three counts of sexual conduct with a minor.

You can read all the details here, but the gist of it is Underwood was having naked sleepovers with the 9-year-old, in which the two played what the victim describes as the "tickle game."

The "tickle game," court documents show, involved the boy rubbing Underwood's penis. In other instances, Underwood is alleged to have put the boy's penis in his mouth.

Underwood told police the victim would often instigate the "tickle game" and he told him to stop every time he grabbed his penis. The victim says the "tickle game" happened once a week from at least July until last month.

Underwood and the victim's family were next door neighbors until he recently moved in with his mother. He even hired the victim's mother to work in his office.

Underwood befriended the family and began helping out by picking the victim and his brother up from school. As a doctor, authorities say, he began working with the victim to help treat his ADHD.

During a confrontation call between Underwood and the mother, he admitted to partaking in "the tickle game." He says the victim was curious about sex, so he allowed him to touch his penis. He told the mother he may have bumped into the victim's penis in the process.

Since Underwood's arrest, parents of former patients of his have contacted police with concerns that their child may have also been a victim. Anyone with such concerns is asked to call the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office at 602-876-1087.

Last month an M.D. was arrested for the same thing. ND just offer people a choice; posion or natural alternative. Educate before speaking.I would think more people had heads in a book rather than in the sand.

Sorry, guys, he's not an M.D. Naturopaths are sort of like chiropractors, but somewhat more crazy.

I happen to see another doc at that office who is an excellent physician! She was given the title of Top Doc in Az last year. She is a Very intelligent and gifted doctor. I have friends that also see her and take their kids as well. We have all been more than pleased with her competant and caring treatment. By the way, she will treat alternative when possible but never hesitates to treat conventionally. It Is a horrible shame what happened to that boy! The actions of one screwed up individual have NOTHING to do with Natropathic medicine!

Exactly, it is the person, not the profession, at fault.

Exactly Helm. Naturopathic Medicine is a wonderful and necessary profession as we emerge into the next generation of health care. Unfortunately, there are going to be bad people in every walk of life. I hope people out there who don't know a lot about naturopathic medicine will not associate an entire profession with one disturbed individual. Blessings to the children who were victimized by such a selfish creep..

Actually, ND's are not like chiropractors, but are licensed Medical Doctors, who complete a 4 year medical degree and residency. Hence the name, Naturopathic Medical Doctors.

She is my doctor also, and I completely agree with you! She turned my life around from not being able to control my blood sugar and all kinds of complications from diabetes to totally having my blood sugar in the normal levels and the complications reversing themselves.

MAN........take your own advice

The real joke is you. Interesting, so you found enough interest in the medicine to apply to the school. What medical school do you attend? Your post is very ignorant. If you have a problem with the medicine comment on the medicine. I find you to be very ignorant to blame an entire focus of medicine, which you know nothing about, on the actions of one person does in his personal life. Which has nothing to do with medicine. I wonder if you will use these keen skills of yours to treat patients? If so, the real quack is you.

p.s. do you realize that naturopath receive the same medical education as an MD. In addition Naturopaths learn the other forms of medicine such as acupuncture, botanical medicine, physical medicine and nutrition among many more. As a future MD, if you are really in medical school, you will only know how to prescribe drugs, making you an over educated drug dealer. Good Luck Scareface
