Illinois places psychiatrist Dexter Whittemore's license on probation; licenses disciplined in California and Minnesota as well
July 28, 2011
On April 6, 2011, the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation placed the license of psychiatrist Dexter Whittemore on indefinite probation.
This action occurred following disciplinary actions taken against Whittemore by the state of Minnesota, which, in November 2009, reprimanded him for unprofessional and unethical conduct; improper management of medical records and for engaging in conduct that is sexual or may reasonably be interpreted by the patient as sexual.
In addition to the reprimand, he was prohibited from providing treatment to patients or to meet with them outside of a hospital or clinical setting and other conditions for the next two years. He was also required to pay a $682 civil penalty. Also in November 2009, Whittemore surrendered his license in the state of California, also relative to the actions taken against him in Minnesota.
