On July 23, 2011, the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Professional Medical Conduct (“Bureau”) revoked the license of psychiatrist Joseph Alexander Jackson, D.O. for professional misconduct. According to the Bureau’s Determination and Order, its action was based on discipline taken on Jackson in another state for conduct which, if it had occurred in the state of New York, would have amounted to professional misconduct. Specifically, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine revoked Jackson’s license on October 6, 2010 after concluding that “engaged in boundary violations that resulted in a sexual encounter with a patient.”
