SAN DIEGO (May 7, 2012)–University of San Diego School of Law’s Center for Public Interest Law Administrative Director Julie Fellmeth provided NBC 7 Investigates expert commentary about San Diego county doctors accused of unprofessional, conduct criminal acts or negligence. In one case, a North County physician is accused of showing intimate photos of at least three patients to friends for “entertainment.” The state medical board seeks to revoke or suspend the physician’s license.
Our investigation revealed that Campbell is one of more than 50 San Diego County doctors accused of unprofessional conduct, criminal acts, or negligence, by the medical board, in the past 15 months.
One South Bay doctor had his license suspended for three months and agreed to seven years probation after being accused of sexual abuse of a female patient during a routine office visit.
A North County physician faces discipline for revealing intimate details about a patient, and sexual misconduct with two female patients.
Another was forced to close his practice after repeatedly showing up drunk, for work, and prescribing the wrong medicines.
"You're putting your life in their hands. You're putting your child's life in their hands," said Julie D'Angelo Fellmeth with the Center for Public Interest Law.
