QME Arrested and Placed on QME Discipline List

March 25th, 2013

Once in a while, dear readers, your humble blogger peruses the QME Discipline List.  There we can see the applicant quack/hacks that are finally getting their come-up-ins and the reasonable, measured, defense-friendly (though totally unbiased) physicians that are being unjustly persecuted by the workers’ compensation system.

One case in particular caught this blogger’s eye – a certain physician from Santa Rosa has been suspended “until criminal case is resolved, pursuant to Penal Code section 23 and Labor Code section 139.2(m).”  It appears that Raymond Severt, M.D., met with Novato’s finest when “police … arrested … a man suspected of attempting to meet up with a 13-year-old girl for sex.”

The investigation is apparently continuing, but it doesn’t look good.

In any case, it’s always a good idea to glance at the QME discipline list once in a while, especially before picking who you’re going to kick off a panel.  If Dr. Severt is scheduled to evaluate the claimant in one of your cases, you may want to look into some alternative scheduling arrangements (ahem).
