Editorial: Stop hiding doctors’ egregious behavior from patients

Published Tuesday February 28

The CA Medical Board has also placed Los Gatos internist Mary Hutchins on probation after she excessively prescribed narcotics and psychotropic drugs to multiple patients.

If you are a patient of one of those doctors, wouldn’t you want to know their status? And what happened?

You deserve to know. It’s long past time for state lawmakers to require that doctors reveal their probationary status to patients.

These are not physicians who have committed minor transgressions; they’re generally one step away from losing their Cali. licenses to practice medicine after egregious behavior.

It’s time for them to put patients’ interests first.
