Steelton doctor’s license suspended

Posted on Tuesday, April 29th, 2014    

A medical practitioner in Steelton has been suspended by the Pennsylvania board of medicine due to allegations of practices that put patients at risk, pennlive.com reported on April 15.

Reports said Doctor Maryjo Szada had her license suspended on April 9 after investigations found that the medical condition of patients under her care was inadequately recorded. The board also discovered that Szada was performing unsanitary practices in her clinic after several used vaginal speculums were found unsterilized in the sink. The state’s Department of Health ordered Szada to stop doing vaginal exams due to the risk that her patients may acquire disease. Szada, who was a family doctor practicing in the 100 block of South Front Street, is scheduled for a preliminary hearing.
