A New Mexico doctor posed a “clear and immediate danger to the public” for numerous infractions including having sex with patients, drinking on the job and leaving some women to give birth while unattended, the state medical board ruled.
Dr. Christopher Driskill was suspended by the New Mexico Medical Board on Friday for allegedly committing several incidents of misconduct…
The board ruled the obstetrician and gynecologist kept a personal stash of alcohol in his office.
Other inappropriate behavior includes prescribing drugs to a sexual partner, being under the influence while at work, writing lewd personal notes in medical charts, delaying a c-section and leaving a patient to give birth unattended because he was having sex with another patient…
Driskill, 42, was the incoming president of the New Mexico Medical Society…
The board is now considering whether to revoke Driskill’s license. A hearing date has not been set. Dr. Driskill can challenge his suspension but at this point has not.
What is there to say? I glad the dude wasn’t my doctor.
How did he get to be elected/appointed by his peers to be the new head of the New Mexico Medical Society?
UPDATE: Finally resigned his gig as head of NM MedicalSociety
