Dr Christopher Driskill is facing a litany of allegations along with this, including being drunk while at work, falsely prescribing drugs to a sexual partner, and writing lewd notes on medical charts.
Several other women who intended to give birth at his clinic claimed they found him absent as they went into labour, forcing hospital staff to scrape together nurses in emergency situations.
Based in New Mexico in the USA, Dr Driskill, 42, was due to become the president of the New Mexico Medical Society next year, before the state’s medical board was informed of his behaviour.
The board said the wayward doctor, who is also accused of keeping a personal stash of alcohol in his desk at work, posed a ‘clear and immediate danger to the public’.
Having been suspended, the board are now in deliberations as to whether or not Dr Driskill will retain is license following the revelations.
‘Your sexual relationships and abuse of alcohol have negatively affected your practice of medicine,’ the board told him in a notice of his suspension.
The obstetrician and gynaecologist has the ability to challenge the suspension and his ban, if his license is revoked, however so far he has not done so.
