Doctors disciplined by state licensing board
By Liz Kowalczyk, Globe staff
The state Board of Registration in Medicine, which licenses Massachusetts doctors, disciplined a surgeon, an internist, and a cardiologist today.
Dr. Putnam P. Breed, a surgeon who once practiced at Anna Jacques Hospital in Newburyport, resigned from the practice of medicine in Massachusetts. Breed, a former Massachusetts medical examiner, was convicted last month of nine felonies for signing cremation certificates without viewing the bodies in the Bayview Crematory scandal in New Hampshire.
The board also accepted the resignation of Dr. James R. Tierney, an internist and pulmonologist who practiced in Gardner.
The board reprimanded Dr. Carl R. Feind, a cardiologist who was affiliated with Cape Cod Hospital until last year, for negligence and failure to maintain proper documentation. The board said that Feind failed to see a lesion in a patient's artery, and, in another case, did not inform a patient having a heart attack of all of the treatment options.
