Medical board takes action against three doctors

Posted: Thursday, November 16, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The Alaska State Medical Board disciplined or reprimanded three doctors for violations of professional regulations or law at a recent board meeting in Anchorage.

Dr. Lavern Davidhizar, a Soldotna family practitioner, was fined $5,000 and had his medical license put on probation for two years. State records show he wrote at least 13 prescriptions for a patient without keeping medical records.

Dr. Davidhizar also pre-signed prescription forms and left them in his office, allowing a physician assistant to use at least one of them without his authorization, according to documents.

The board reprimanded and fined Dr. Hugo Romeu, a Florida doctor, $3,000 for providing inaccurate information in his application to practice in Alaska

Dr. Ronald Brockman, an Anchorage orthopedic surgeon, was reprimanded and fined $5,000 for inappropriately prescribing drugs to a female patient with whom he had a personal relationship. Dr. Brockman did not keep medical records for the drugs he prescribed to the woman, according to records.

The state medical board is responsible for ensuring that doctors abide by state law and regulations to practice medicine.
