Suspended doctor plans to appeal
April 13, 2014, Brookline, MA A Brookline doctor with Cape ties whose license was temporarily suspended Wednesday
plans to appeal, his attorney said in an email Saturday.
The state Board of Registration in Medicine suspended the license of Dr. Punyamurtula Kishore after finding that he posed "an immediate and serious threat to the public health, safety and welfare." Kishore closed clinics in 2011 without notifying patients in advance, according to the board.
Kishore operated several drug treatment offices on the Cape and Islands.
He has the right to appeal the suspension within seven days of the board's decision.
Kishore also faces a Medicaid fraud charge on allegations that he bribed the owner of sober houses with $597,000 in insurance kickbacks, to send patients needing urine screens to his treatment centers.
A motions hearing on the charge is set for May 19 in Suffolk Superior Court in Boston, according to a spokesman for Attorney General Martha Coakley. Coakley led a grand jury investigation that targeted Kishore.
He ran a 30-office chain known as Preventive Medicine Associates Inc.
"The attorney general's office has yet to bring Kishore's case to trial, instead continuing the case 11 times and counting," attorney Harold Jacobi of Lexington said, in a written response to the Times on behalf of Kishore. "Dr. Kishore is confident of acquittal and hopes to have his license reinstated on appeal or when he defeats the criminal allegations."
A website in support of Kishore has been set up at
Kishore, an Indian national in the United States as a permanent resident, was ordered to surrender his passport because he is considered a flight risk.
