NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There is a new effort in New Jersey to change how the Board of Medical Examiners handles allegations of sexual abuse against doctors.

As WCBS 880’s Jim Smith reported, the reform effort from state Sen. Loretta Weinberg comes after the Bergen Record revealed a Teaneck doctor has kept his license for more than a decade despite allegations from more than a dozen patients and having to go through a pre-trial intervention program twice when it’s usually reserved for first time offenders.

The doctor has been banned from ever practicing on women.

But Weinberg said patients should know these kinds of things.

“There should be some posting that a patient can easily read,” she said.

Weinberg is now working with the Division of Consumer Affairs, which oversees the Board of Medical Examiners to see how this case slipped through the cracks and to close any potential loopholes in the disciplinary process.
