Florida disciplines five doctors for their medical mistakes
Orlando Sentinel, October 9, 2008
Five Central Florida doctors have been disciplined in separate cases involving wrong-site surgeries or incorrect procedures being carried out. The Florida Board of Medicine voted to fine Orlando surgeon Jonathan Greenberg $5,000 for operating on the wrong disc in a patient's back in September 2006. The board also fined Orlando urologist Stephen Butler $10,000 for operating on the wrong testicle of a patient during an April 2007 procedure. Three other cases involved cataract procedures in which doctors initially put the wrong kind of lens implants in their patients, according to state documents.
