RI Department of Health revokes doctor’s license for alleged sexual misconduct

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.’

Nine Texas doctors reviewed by Texas Medical Board

In October nine Texas abortion doctors will go before a Texas Medical Board review panel after allegations of illegal disposal of patient records and other violations were reported.

The reports come from the anti-abortion, Christian activist group, “Operation Rescue,” which is based in Kansas. The organization claims that the Texas abortionists also improperly disposed of medical waste and violated state parental-involvement laws after a three month investigation. The review panel will allow the “Operation Rescue” and each doctor to share their side of the issue and then it will decide whether disciplinary actions are necessary.

If the Texas Medical Board believes there were violations, the physicians could be fined, require additional oversight, or be force to take continuing education classes.

Octomom blames fertility doctor

Nadya  Suleman, known in the media as the Octomom, recently announced she was drugged when she signed papers her doctor gave her that allowed him to implant 12 embryos inside of her. She claims she was not lucid and on Valium and other drugs when her fertility doctor, Michael Kamarava, gave her the consent forms.

Kamarava lost his license last month, convicted by the state of “gross negligence and repeated negligent acts of an excessive number of embryo transfers.” Kamarava defends his actions, stating that Suleman wanted the embryos and was following through with his patient’s wishes.

Cardiologist’s License Restricted for Controversial Stem Cell Therapy

A Florida cardiologist recently had his medical license suspended because members of the Board of Medicine wanted to prevent him from performing stem cell transplants that have not been approved and have not been shown to work in the treatment of diseases.

The cardiologist began holding educational seminars to teach people about the usefulness of stem cells. He also began transplanting stem cells into the organs of disabled patients, with claims that it would cure their disabilities, although no research has proven that stem cells can cure or treat disabilities. His patients’ results were mixed, as one man got better and another died almost immediately following the surgery.

It is not clear if t he cardiologist will be incurring any legal action for his surgeries, or if he will lose his license, however, he is still performing surgeries in the Dominican Republic and holding seminars.

Grand Rapids denies lone applicant for medical marijuana grower’s license

Several months ago, the city of Grand Rapids passed a statute to require medical marijuana growers to procure licenses as home-based businesses. However, since that time, the city has not issued a single license. The new ordinance requires that the businesses obtain a $224 license and undergo regular inspections. The lone applicant was denied by city officials.

Some critics say that the terms of the new ordinance are too restrictive and that it was designed with the intent to drive these types of businesses out of the city. The state is home to 45,800 medical marijuana patients.
