State suspends psychiatrist Jasung Kim, alleged to have engaged in sexual relationship with two patients

On February 4, 2010, the Nebraska Medical Board issued a summary suspension on the license of psychiatrist Jasung Kim and will be seeking formal disciplinary actions against him, based on allegations that he twice pursued sexual relationships with patients and once revealed confidential information.  According to Board documents, Kim had relationships with two female patients in 2009.  The first allegedly occurred in May, while he was prescribing the patient the opioid Suboxone.  The second is alleged to have occurred between July to September after obtaining her phone number through patient records.
