Vermont takes action against license of psychiatrist Firooz Tabrizi
August 30, 2012
On December 6, 2011, the Vermont Board of Medical Practice conditioned the license of psychiatrist Firooz Tabrizi.
The Vermont Board opened a case on Tabrizi upon his disclosure on his renewal application that Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare in Utica, New York had restricted his clinical privileges in psychiatry.
On February 7, 2011, Tabrizi entered into a consent agreement with the New York State Board for Professional Medical Conduct. In that agreement, he admitted that he committed professional misconduct by failing to maintain accurate records for eight patients (Tabrizi was charged with numerous other treatment and standard of care-related failures).
He therefore agreed that his license to practice in New York is limited to preclude patient contact and any practice of medicine and that he may not diagnose, treat or prescribe at all.
His New York license is inactive. His license has been conditions thusly in the state of Vermont as well.
