Psychiatrist Lawrence Mazur surrenders license permanently rather than face charges
October 26, 2010
A New Hampshire psychiatrist who was suspended for alleged misconduct at Lakes Regoinal General Hospital in Laconia has agreed to surrender his license.
The New Hampshire Board of Medicine said Friday it accepted the permanent, voluntary surrender from 62-year-old Lawrence Mazur.
Mazur acknowledged his action "has occurred in settlement of pending disciplinary charges."
Lakes Region General Hospital suspended Mazur on June 22 and the board of medicine ordered an emergency suspension of his license on June 30, citing "imminent danger to life and health" of his patients.
A hospital worker complained that Mazur had assaulted her by repeatedly pushing her away from a patient she was trying to help. She filed a restraining order against him.
Mazur has not been charged with any crime.
