Not the first time doctor lost license The woman also complained to the Lincoln Police Department, which investigated the incident and interviewed Nasseri.
During one tape-recorded interview, he admitted to administering the drug.
A Rhode Island doctor has had his license suspended by the Health Department after drugging a female patient and making sexual advances towards her. Afshin Nasseri gave the patient an injection of Midazolam, a sedative that is most commonly used before endoscopy or colonoscopy procedures and causes temporary amnesia.
Nasseri administered this drug to a female patient who came to his office earlier this month complaining of pain in her right shoulder, according to the Department of Health.
Nasseri asked the patient to disrobe and put on an examination gown.
After injecting the drug, Nasseri “asked the patient about her sex life and then returned with a needle and syringe and administered it to her left arm,” the Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline states in its suspension order.
But a Health Department inspection turned up no record in the patient’s file of the Midazolam injection.
This is not the first time Nasseri has lost his license.
In 2007, he voluntarily surrendered his license due to an “episodic medical condition” that rendered him unable to “practice safely.” He was later reinstated after agreeing to be monitored by the Physician Health Committee of the Rhode Island Medical Society.
After his reinstatement, Nasseri also was required to have a “mentor and a practice manager” as well as a “chaperone” in the room for examinations of all female patients.
