    Nature of Complaint

    The Iowa Board of Medicine has charged the physician with excessive use of alcohol which may impair her ability to practice medicine with reasonable skill and safety and suffering from a physical, neuropsychological or mental condition which may impair her ability to practice medicine and surgery with reasonable skill and safety. In year 2001, the physician self-reported to the Iowa Physician Health Program (IPHP) for alcohol dependence and entered into a confidential contract which expired October 25, 2006. In 2003 the physician relapsed and returned to inpatient treatment, extending her contract until December 23, 2008. In 2009 the physician relapsed again as a social drinker and on February 4, 2010 the Board issued a Confidential Evaluation Order for a comprehensive physical, neuropsychological and substance abuse evaluation which was conducted March 31, 2010 – April 2, 1010. The evaluation provided the physician’s diagnoses as Alcohol Dependence In Partial Sustained Remission, and Major Depressive Disorder by History and recommended that the physician return to a monitoring program, obtain psychotherapy and obtain a workplace physician-mentor to act as her coach and advocate. The evaluator concluded that the physician would become a danger to the public and her patients if she resumed actively drinking.

    Action Taken

    The Iowa Board of Medicine issued a Decision and Order. The physician has been issued a Public Reprimand and the physician shall pay a Civil Penalty in the amount of $5,000.00.
