EMS Doctor Fights License Revocation

The medical director of the Hollywood and Pembroke Pines fire-rescue departments who had his license yanked by the Florida Board of Medicine for misrepresenting himself as an expert witness is fighting the decision, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Dr. Richard Dellerson can keep practicing medicine, thanks to an order from a state appellate court, but an interim director has taken his place for now with the fire-rescue departments. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
