On May 21, 2013, psychiatrist Byron Kilgore surrendered his license to the Medical Board of California.
According to the Board’s document, Kilgore engaged in a sexual relationship with a patient.
Kilgore began treating the patient in 1974 and continued to see the patient intermittently at various time intervals, including between 2001 and 2009.
In 2008, the sessions became more flirtatious and Kilgore would sometimes hug her at the end of sessions.
In or about May 2009, Kilgore engaged in a sexual encounter, including sexual intercourse with the patient, at a hotel near his office, followed by two or three further encounters in his office in the ensuing weeks.
The sexual relationship then ended and the patient stopped seeing Kilgore.
