    • Summary: Dr. Robert Carsten Von Borstel, II; License # MD22078

      Nature of Complaint:

      The physician engaged in unprofessional or dishonorable conduct, gross or repeated acts of negligence, violation of the Federal Controlled Substances Act, and prescribed controlled substances without a legitimate medical purpose or without following accepted procedures for examination of patients or recordkeeping.

      The physician in October 2001 began seeing a social friend as a patient who the physician knew was a heroin addict. The physician prescribed Clonazepam with periodic refills without patient records, regular office visits or urine monitoring. The physician also from October 2001 through 2003 provided therapy approximately every six months in which the patient's visits were not charted and the physician failed to refer the patient to a drug treatment center. The physician also between 2005 and 2007 violated professional boundaries by extending loans and monetary gifts to the patient. The physician also in 2006 engaged in sexual misconduct by entering into a sexual relationship with the patient for about three months. The physician also on two occasions used Schedule I controlled substances with the patient. The physician also in January 2007 prescribed morphine sulphate to taper the patient off of heroin and in August 2007 prescribed buprenorphine and failed to maintain appropriate records or follow monitoring protocol.

      The physician also provided psychiatric care to another patient and failed to maintain adequate medical records for this patient. The physician also prescribed the patient Lithium without appropriate pre-lithium laboratory analysis and failed to montior the patient's lithium levels.

      The physician completed a continuing medical education course in maintaining proper boundaries and has been in ongoing psychotherapy since October 2007.

      Action Taken:

      The physician has entered into a Stipulated Order with the Oregon Medical Board subject to the following:

      1. The physician has Surrendered his license to practice medicine in the State of Oregon while under investigation and shall not practice any form of medicine including administrative medicine and individual medical examinations.
      2. The physician has been issued a Reprimand from the board.
