The NYS Department of Health's Office of Professional Medical Conduct found Dr. Loubert Suddaby performed lumbar examinations on three female patients without offering them a gown or having a chaperone present. Suddaby did not contest the charges, and his license was suspended for 36 months.
However the entire suspension period was stayed as Suddaby has agreed to practice medicine while being monitored by a licensed physician and providing a chaperone, who must be a licensed health care worker, while treating or evaluating female patients.
Suddaby will also pay a $10,000 fine.
