Maine psychiatrist disciplined for remarks, violating confidentiality
February 14, 2006
Maine psychiatrist Takeo Kawamura agreed to accept a reprimand in an agreement signed with the state Board of Licensure in Medicine. In addition, Dr. Kawamura must successfully complete a Board approved ethics course every year.
The Board received two complaints against Dr. Kawamura alleging inappropriate remarks and violation of patient confidentiality. Dr. Kawamura admitted the Board had sufficient evidence to reasonably conclude that he used inappropriate language, inappropriately shared confidential medical information, and employed untested and unaccepted therapeutic measures.
