North Dakota Medical Board Revokes License of Psychiatrist Lloyd M. Bell

January 20, 2020

On November 22, 2019, the North Dakota Board of Medicine revoked the license of psychiatrist Lloyd M. Bell.

The Board’s document states that for more than twenty years, Dr. Bell managed Patient A’s medication and provided psychotherapy service to her.

During an appointment with Patient A on June 20, 2018, Dr. Bell engaged in an inappropriate conversation with Patient A about problems he was having in his marital relationship. This conversation included Dr. Bell making statements regarding what he was doing for “intimate satisfaction.” The appointment ended with Dr. Bell hugging Patient A.

The Board found this behavior to be a violation of North Dakota statutes regarding the conduct of physician, in that it constituted conduct that is dishonorable, unethical, or unprofessional, and that is likely to deceive, defraud, or harm the public.
