April 12, 2012

On November 22, 2011, psychiatrist David John Wood surrendered his license to the Virginia Board of Medicine. According to the Board’s Consent Order, Wood engaged in sexual contact with a patient. The document states that the patient was the mother of two of Wood’s other patients, who were both minors. Additionally, it states that Wood prescribed the antipsychotic drug Risperdal to one of the minors for nearly five years without properly recording or documenting an assessment or the patient or justification for the prescription in the patient’s medical record. Further, it states that Wood, who had obtained information that one of the minors had been physically and mentally abused by his father, failed to report to the proper authorities. Lastly, it states that he failed to keep timely, accurate, legible and complete patient records.
