Sioux Falls Doctor Keeps Medical License

November 28, 2012, 6:07 PM by Peggy Moyer

Sioux Falls Doctor Keeps Medical License
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A Sioux Falls doctor keeps her license to practice medicine after appearing before the state board of medical examiners on Wednesday.

Dr. Annette Bosworth was reprimanded by the medical board back in June for employing a physician’s assistant who wasn't licensed to practice. 

Part of Bosworth's agreement with the board at that time was to seek treatment for a mental illness in order to continue her practice. Her appearance before the board on Wednesday was because its members felt Bosworth hadn't lived up to all the terms she had agreed to.

The dispute presented by lawyers on both sides surrounds the signing of three releases that would give the board of medical examiners the right to information from Bosworth's sessions with her psychologist, psychiatrist and a physician mentor.

Bill Golden, a lawyer for the state medical board staff argued Bosworth had been intentionally dragging her feet on signing the releases.

Bosworth's attorney argued she had given verbal consent already, but part of the hold up on signing them was that she was looking for a therapist she was comfortable with rather than a forensic therapist recommended by the board. Bosworth and her attorney also wanted some of the language changed in the release.

After more than three hours of sometimes contentious statements on both sides, language was included in the release that would prevent Bosworth from being disciplined by the board if her doctors didn't file the monthly reports.

"The agreements have been signed. Dr. Bosworth has fulfilled the agreement that she signed in June and the mentoring agreementa are in pace which is what we asked and we consider this matter settled," State Board of Medical Examiners vice chair Mary Carpenter said.

"We agree with what the board said today that signing the stipulations and moving on that is a relief," Bosworth said.

Through out this process and medical reprimand, Bosworth had been listed in the national practioners databank as one who had or could put patients in danger. On Wednesday, the board of medical examiners asked that a letter be sent to the national databank, requesting that designation be removed.
