Former Fox News medical contributor Dr. Keith Ablow no longer has his medical license.

The development follows lawsuits from several patients who allege the famous psychiatrist engaged in sexual misconduct. 

Per The Wrap:
 

“The Board summarily suspended Dr. Keith R. Ablow’s medical license after finding that Dr. Ablow poses an immediate and serious threat to the public health, safety and welfare,” read a statement from the Massachusetts state Board of Registration in Medicine released on Thursday.

“The Board alleges that Dr. Ablow engaged in sexual activity and boundary violations with multiple patients, diverted controlled substances from patients, engaged in disruptive behavior, including displaying and pointing a firearm on multiple occasions in a manner that scared an employee, and procured his license renewal fraudulently,” it continued.

...

Ablow, who served as a Fox News medical contributor until 2017, was accused in February by multiple female patients of using his position to pressure them into unwanted sexual relationships.

“He began to hit me when we engaged in sexual activities,” one plaintiff wrote in a sworn affidavit filed with her lawsuit, according to the Boston Globe. “He would have me on my knees and begin to beat me with his hands on my breasts, occasionally saying, ‘I own you,’ or ‘You are my slave.'”
