1 Sanction

  • Professional Misconduct  (5/12/2010)
  • Action Taken: Reprimand
  • Summary: Dr. Peter Richard Coleman; License # 0101037152

    Nature of Complaint:

    The physician with regard to Patient A, a Nevada resident, and Patient B, a Pennsylvania resident, failed to provide for and/or document adequate or appropriate follow-up care and treatment as part of a treatment plan before providing Patients A & B with rapid benzodiazepine detoxification. The physician with regard to Patient C, a Kentucky resident, failed to provide for and/or document adequate or appropriate follow-up care and treatment as part of a treatment plan before providing Patient C with accelerated detoxification for heroin.

    The physician published or caused to be published on the Coleman Institute's website false, misleading or deceptive statements despite the fact that the statements were not consistent with the experiences of Patients A and B or with the information contained in the Coleman Institute Consent Form for Rapid Benzodiazepine Detoxification.

    The physician in reviewing his website after the Virginia Board of Medicine investigation has made changes to the statements posted on the physician's website. The physician admitted that the website language could have been misleading but noted that his patient consent forms and the discussions that took place in his office were very clear on the risks and side effects involved in the rapid benzodiazepine detox treatment with Flumazenil. The physician stated to the Special Conference Committee that he works very hard to make sure his patients get follow-up treatment and remain in long-term recovery.

    Action Taken:

    The physician shall pay a monetary penalty in the amount of $5,000.00 to the Virginia Board of Medicine within sixty days. The physician has been issued a Reprimand and the physician's license shall be subject to the following terms and conditions:

    • The physician within sixty days shall submit a written practice protocol for board approval which documents the aftercare plans and follow up providers for all detox patients.
    • The physician within sixty days shall submit written verification that the physician has reviewed his entire website to ensure that all information provides an accurate reflection of the nature and level of services the physician provides and are fairly and reasonably available to his patients.

    July 13, 2010-Terms Terminated

    The physician has complied with the terms of the 05-12-2010 Order. The Virginia Board of Medicine has terminated the terms placed on the physician's license. The physician currently has a full and unrestricted license in the State of Virginia.
