Over his career, Joachim received four complaints of sexual contact with patients, three board actions and two guilty pleas as far back as the early 1990s.

In 1995, two women accused Joachim of molesting them during medical exams. He admitted to touching one of the women, but denied wrongdoing with the other women. He pleaded guilty to sexual criminal conduct and was sentenced to seven years of probation and required to have a chaperone during the examination of female patients.

In 2011, the most recent case, Joachim was accused of sexually assaulting a 25-year-old patient in his office. He was arrested a month later and his license was subsequently suspended. He pleaded guilty to criminal sexual contact, a lesser charge.
