Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden today asked the state's Board of Medical Licensing and Discipline to suspend the licenses of two physicians who worked with Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelpia abortion doctor charged with killing a woman who was under his care and maintaining what has been described as a greusome house of horrors within the walls of his clinic.


Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden today asked the state's Board of Medical Licensing and Discipline to suspend the licenses of two physicians who worked with Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelpia abortion doctor charged with killing a woman who was under his care and maintaining what has been described as a greusome house of horrors within the walls of his clinic.

The Delaware doctors worked in Gosnell's practice, Atlantic Women's Medical Services, which has offices in Wilmington and Dover.

Biden asked for the suspensions of Dr. Albert Dworkin and Dr. Arturo Apolinario.

The physicians, the AG's office said, should have reported Gosnell's alleged misconduct both in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Biden also alleged Apolinario prescribed and dispensed controlled substances at the Delaware clinics though he was not legally authorized to do so.


The Attorney General’s office also is seeking a cease and desist order against Panzy Myrie, the owner of Atlantic Women’s Medical Services, for falsely representing herself to the public as a licensed medical doctor and gynecologist, though she has never been licensed in Delaware.

Biden asked the Board to impose the maximum fine available on Atlantic Women’s Medical Services for its failure to report unprofessional conduct to the Board.
 
"Reporting professional misconduct is the law," Biden said in a press release. "It is intended to help ensure patients receive the quality care they deserve and expect. We will aggressively pursue action against anyone who fails to comply."
 
Gosnell’s medical license and controlled substances registration were suspended in Delaware March 2, 2010.
