RI Department of Health revokes doctor’s license for alleged sexual misconduct
Posted on Tuesday, August 7th, 2012
The Department of Health in Rhode Island has recently revoked the license of a doctor at Pawtuxet Valley Urgent Care after they found merit to a sexual misconduct claim that involved a 70-year-old woman.
According to officials in the case, the woman was having a stethoscopic examination when the doctor ‘touched her breasts’ and ‘partly lowered her pants without informing her’ first.
She claims that this examination was unnecessary because her symptoms were linked to bronchitis and pneumonia. Officials with the department have stated that the man’s license should be revoked because he is a ‘danger to the public.’
