Is my doctor fit to practice?
This week, we discussed how to tell if your doctor is fit to practice.
First, we spoke with Florida Times-Union enterprise reporter Katherine Lewin about her investigative reporting into an ailing doctor at the center of more than 300 lawsuits. Former patients allege "devastating injuries" from the doctor at St. Vincent's Riverside hospital in Jacksonville.
Next, we spoke with Dr. David Bazzo, director of the University of California in San Diego’s Physician Assessment and Clinical Education program, which helps ensure the safety of patients by formally evaluating and assessing doctors and offering remediation for health care workers.
