Nature of Complaint:
In DOAH Case Number 09-5267PL the physician spent an excessive amount of time, eleven hours and thirty-five minutes, operating on a patient performing multiple surgeries in an office setting.
In DOH Case Number 09-5269PL the physician used his position as a physician in order to convince a patient that allergy tests were needed when the tests were not needed. The physician used the allergy side of his practice as a means of increasing the cash flow for his practice particularly when the patient was not presenting for allergies and was not presenting with allergy symptoms. The rotation diet is another example of the physician using his position to increase the physician's cash flow when there was no medical justification for the diet. The physician failed to diagnose the patient's allergic reaction to Minocycline and Nystatin and treat the reactions by discontinuing the medications. The physician put the patient on a yeast-free diet when there was no justification for the diet and continued the diet after tests revealed that the patient did not have an allergy to baker's yeast. The physician failed to justify in his medical records the need for ordering the 91 RAST allergy tests.
In DOAH Case Number 09-5270PL the physician committed medical malpractice by recommending surgery based on the patient's CT scan and the sleep apnea study without proceeding first with other types of treatment. The physician committed medical malpractice by planning to perform inappropriate and unnecessary surgery. There were no polyps present, the sleep apnea was moderate and did not require surgical intervention, and the patient's septum was not significantly deviated to require surgery.
