Psychiatrist Alan M. Seltzer suspended as "clear and immediate danger"
October 18, 2010
On July 27, 2010 the Pennsylvania Department of State temporarily suspended the license of psychiatrist Alan M. Seltzer because his continued practice of medicine was deemed by the state to be “a clear and immediate danger to the public health and safety.”
Seltzer resides and practices in Delaware. That state temporarily suspended his license on June 16, 2010 for a violation classified on the state’s website entry on Seltzer’s as “other.” However, a local news item reported that the state of Delaware suspended his license on an emergency basis, alleging that he “engaged in and may continue to engage in a activities which present a clear and immediate danger to the public health.”
Specific allegations included lack of controls on access to patient records and medications stored in his office; improper security and storage of controlled substances; prescribing, dispensing and patient record-keeping violations and failure to conduct proper medical examinations to support his prescriptions for controlled and non-controlled substance, among other things.
