During an appearance Monday morning on “The Howard Stern Show,” Maria Menounos said she has been sexually abused by multiple physicians during medical examinations.

She described an incident of being touched inappropriately below the belt by a doctor she went to see for a throat issue. In another instance, she says a male doctor remarked how “hot” he thought her belly-button piercing was and touched it.

The “Extra” co-host and recent “DWTS” finalist said she declined to press charges at the time.

“I was really young, so I was so uncomfortable,” Menounos, 34, said. “I was just so uncomfortable I didn’t know what to do.”

Talk about bad medicine.
