New York revokes license of psychiatrist Barlow Smith
November 4, 2013
On June 5, 2013, the New York Office of Professional Medical Conduct revoked the license of psychiatrist Barlow Smith.
According to the state’s documents, Smith was disciplined by the Texas Medical Board in May 2009 for engaging in sexual contact with a patient at Smith's invitation. He was required to pay a penalty of $3,000 and complete professional boundaries course.
In August 2011, the Texas board again disciplined him, requiring him to obtain at least eight hours continuing medical education in the area of medical recordkeeping based on finding that, among other things, he failed to maintain records to support the treatment regimen of four patients to whom he prescribed pain medication and stimulants.
