Med Board Drops Charges Against Doctor, Fines Others

The state Medical Examining Board on Tuesday withdrew charges that a Putnam gynecologist had inappropriate physical and sexual contact with a patient because the doctor has agreed to stop practicing medicine. Dr. Ronald Archibold voluntarily agreed on Dec. 31 not to seek to renew or reinstate his expired medical license, state Department of Public Health records show. In doing so, Archibold did not admit wrongdoing but agreed that if he ever sought to renew his license, he would not contest the charges. DPH’s charges stated that Archibold engaged in the inappropriate conduct on more than one occasion when providing care to a patient between August 2008 and October 2011.
