Concerns about doctors in the middle of clinic exchange

If you need medical care, the last thing you want to find out is that the person working on your care has been dismissed from another hospital or state due to medical malpractice. Worse yet would be finding out that patients' concerns weren't taken seriously, and that the doctor accused has had his or her license returned.

According to an article published on May 12, New Jersey patients may want to know about the sale of a clinic to a man that has been accused of sexually abusing his patients. The story claims that the doctor owning the clinic known for providing abortions had to sell that clinic due to losing his license. His license was suspended after he was found to have been medically negligent and was guilty of deception and misconduct. The license has been suspended since 2010.

The authorities reported that the initial doctor had his license suspended after providing late-term abortions, which led to at least one of his patients becoming dangerously ill. One suffered a lacerated uterus and bowel, putting her life at risk.

When the doctor's license was revoked, he transferred his clinic to a medical director who has an alleged history of abuse and wrongfully prescribing drugs to patients. The same medical director has admitted to having a stroke and to having lost some of his memory and vision.

He previously was accused and found guilty of sleeping with a patient in the 1980s on one of the birthing beds in Pennsylvania. Because of this kind of mark on the doctor's history, some are calling for the transfer to be stopped, so he wouldn't be able to take over the clinic.
