    Action Taken: Surrender
    Summary: Dr. Murray Adrian Cotter; License # A104850

    Nature of Complaint:

    During 2008 and 2009, the physician did a fellowship in dermatology. The physician developed a romantic relationship with a patient, which continued until approximately July 2009. In October of 2008, the physician performed a surgical procedure in which he excised a scar from the patient’s shoulder and stitched the incision, and provided the patient with pain medication and a prescription for an antibiotic. When the patient developed a keloid scar, the physician injected the excision site with steroids on at least two occasions. The physician did not document the prescribing of pain and antibiotic medications, nor did he document the steroid injections to treat the keloid scar. The physician failed to create a patient medical record of the care and treatment he provided to this patient. During their relationship, the physician injected the patient with an anticonvulsant, a sedative and an antibiotic, and prescribed birth control pills to her, in which none of these were documented.

    Action Taken:

    The physician’s license is Surrendered and accepted by the Medical Board of California.
