Doctor’s license suspended for taking pictures of female patients

A San Diego doctor’s medical license was suspended November 4 by the state’s medical board for taking inappropriate pictures of some of his patients, utsandiego.com reported.

Medical Board of California suspended the license of Doctor Jeffrey Joel Abrams for allegedly taking pictures, sometimes nude pictures, of his female patients. The interim suspension will last 30 days until a formal complaint can be filed with the board. The suspension will stand if criminal charges are filed against Abrams. A spokesman for the District Attorney’s Office was approached for a comment, but said that they cannot speak on an open case. Abrams also declined to comment.
