Minn. Board of Medical Practice disciplines Wabasha doctor


ST. PAUL, Minn. (KTTC) -- The Minnesota Board of Medical Practice is reprimanding a Wabasha doctor for unethical conduct.

The board received complaints in November 2011 saying Dr. Jonathan Peterson had an inappropriate personal relationship with three patients.

An investigation by the Minnesota Attorney General's office found Peterson cared for patients outside of an office setting, acted in a parental role and paid the patients to run personal errands for him.

The state board of medical practice is requiring Dr. Peterson to pay a civil penalty and complete courses on professional boundaries.
