A Doctor in Prison

I was dismayed by the article on page six of the November '95 PLN about the WA Doctor Scandal. I am a board certified family physician who is doing two five-year hits for third degree sexual assault of two female patients.

I hope when I am paroled in 2-3 years I will be able to practice medicine again. The safest way for me to practice would be in a structured environment and/or with male patients. I feel working with male patients in a prison could be a viable option, where I could benefit both the inmate population and myself. I surrendered my license because of sexual problems and not incompetence.

I think Dr. McGuire already was punished for violating the law and should be given a chance to prove himself. Doctors are not different from the rest of the population and that to rehabilitate them would be advantageous to the prison population, society and the doctor in question.
