Providence Journal, September 22, 2008
The state of Rhode Island has disciplined Laurent Brard, an obstetrician-gynecologist, for reportedly having a sexual relationship with a patient, according to this report from the Providence Journal. The physician is temporarily barred from seeing patients. Under American Medical Association guidelines, it is unethical for a doctor to engage in a romantic or sexual relationship with a current patient.
