On February 24, 2009, Elliot Cohen, M.D., a Watertown, New York doctor who specializes in obstetrics and gynecology had his license suspended for three months by the New York State Department of Health Office of Professional Medical Conduct (“OPMC”). OPMC concluded that Dr. Cohen “committed professional misconduct by prescribing medications over the internet to persons the respondent never examined.”
The suspension followed OPMC’s review of the Watertown doctor’s prescription of Viagra, Levitra and amoxicillin to a company in North Carolina. Dr. Cohen charged a fee for the medications.
