We recently represented a medical doctor who applied to Pennsylvania for a medical license. The doctor's medical license was previously revoked by the State of New York in 1995 for inappropriately touching two patients and a technician as well as several malpractice verdicts against him. Our client reapplied for licensure in New York in 2000 but was denied. Our client applied for licensure in two other states, most recently in 2010; however, both of these applications for licensure were denied.
On March 24, 2015, the Court entered a Memorandum and Order In Rarrick v. Dr. Richard Silbert and Behavioral Healthcare Center, P.C., Court of Common Pleas, Lackawanna County, No. 2002-CV-4951, the Plaintiff alleged that the Defendant Silbert was negligent in that he knew or should have known of a clear and present danger his patient, Gerald Rarrick, Jr. presented to Plaintiffs and that Silbert failed to take any action to diffuse the situation.
