Sarasota Doctor Accused of Gross Malpractice Wants To Keep Working

Sarasota surgeon and dermatologist Dr. Michael Rosin wants to keep performing surgery in spite of the fact that he’s been indicted on charges of routinely lying about skin cancer diagnoses and performing unnecessary surgery. Rosin’s lawyers have filed a petition to overturn the Florida Department of Health’s order prohibiting him from diagnosing skin cancer and performing surgery. The state has accused him of gross malpractice, inadequate record keeping and demonstrating a “flagrant disregard” for his duties as a doctor.
It’s unbelievable to me that any court would allow such a doctor to continue to practice with such a record. Doctors must be held accountable for their actions if consumers are to be safe and treated with the care and professionalism they expect and demand.
