Maine Licensure Board Puts Auburn Cardiologist on Probation
LEWISTON, Maine - The Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine has placed Auburn cardiologist Dr. Robert Weiss on probation for professional misconduct.
The board's Tim Terranova says the action follows a complaint that Weiss was irritable, hostile, and made inappropriate comments while treating a patient.
"The Board received a complaint from a daughter of a patient that Dr. Weiss had been unprofessional during his interactions with family members during the patient's hospitalization," Terranova says.
In addition to his work as a cardiologist, Dr. Weiss is also the founder of Maine Research Associates, which conducts clinical trials. Under a consent agreement, for at least 18 months Weiss can only practice in connection with Maine Research Associates. A physician proctor will file quarterly reports on Weiss.
