A doctor accused of sexually abusing four women patients at clinics in Melbourne and Daytona Beach should lose his license, the Florida Board of Medicine said Friday.
The board threw out a settlement that would have allowed Dr. Albert Esmailzadeh to keep practicing as long as he didn’t treat women patients. That emergency restriction was imposed in March.
But board members said he shouldn’t be seeing any patients, male or female.
“This is a bad actor, a real bad actor,” said board chairman Dr. Zachariah P. Zachariah.
