Ethics has been on my mind a great deal lately.
A client recently asked me to publicize a primary care physician hired to expand their beauty and wellness clinic to include primary care. During a brief Google check of the doc’s background, I discovered he was on probation for inappropriate sexual contact with two female patients. He admitted guilt. A psychiatric evaluation concluded he should not be allowed contact with female patients. The client was well aware of the situation yet didn’t tell me. They were actually a bit shocked that I uncovered the information.
