Medical Board Fines Two Docs, Another Surrenders His License
The state Medical Examining Board Tuesday accepted a Southbury doctor’s voluntary surrender of his medical license, fined a New Milford Hospital anesthesiologist $5,000 and reprimanded and fined a New London doctor $7,000. The board also placed a Coventry doctor on one year’s probation. In addition, after issuing a declaratory ruling that colonic irrigation is a medical procedure that falls within the scope of a physician’s practice and cannot be performed by an unlicensed practitioner, the board agreed to a request to reconsider its decision following a hearing. On the doctor cases, the board:
• Agreed to halt disciplinary proceedings against Michael Ajemian, of Southbury, who surrendered his license in October. His license had been under suspension since June. According the health department, Ajemian abused alcohol in 2011 to a point where his practice of medicine represented a threat to public health.
