We haven’t heard much on Dr. Brad Jabobs since late June, when the state Department of Health suspended his license to practice medicine, and he was hit with various allegations of misconduct. The Village Voice has an indepth look into the case against Dr. Jacobs and a profile on the doctor. According to the piece, the doctor, over the course of the last eight years, has settled or lost at least 26 malpractice lawsuits filed against him, with more making their way through the courts.
Since late June, a panel of two doctors and one layman has been reviewing Jacobs’s case on behalf of the state Department of Health. They are considering whether to permanently revoke his license to practice medicine and are scheduled to render a decision at the end of September.
