California reprimands psychiatrist Herbert M. Grossman; previously disciplined in Arizona
July 18, 2013
On February 12, 2013, the Medical Board of California issued a public reprimand against psychiatrist Herbert M. Grossman.
This action was based on disciplinary action taken against him in the state of Arizona.
On December 6, 2012, the Arizona Medical Board reprimanded Grossman and placed his license on probation for six months for “conduct or practice that is or might be harmful or dangerous to the health of the patient or the public.”
The Board’s document states that Grossman’s treatment fell below the standard of care in several ways, including failure to perform a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s substance use; failure to monitor the patient for compliance with treatment, including urine drug screening and failure to enter into a treatment agreement that addressed how no-shows or lost medications would be handled, among other things.
