New Bedford doctor's practice restricted

By Liz Kowalczyk, Globe Staff

Dr. John George, an internist who practices in North Dartmouth and at South Coast Hospital Group-St. Luke's Campus in New Bedford, has entered a voluntary agreement with the Board of Registration in Medicine to restrict his practice.

Under the agreement, he cannot have unsupervised contact with female patients. George must perform all exams in the presence of a female chaperone, who shall be approved in advance by the board. He also agreed not to be present in the room while a patient is undressing.

The agreement is not an admission of wrongdoing by George, the document states. The board would not comment on what led to the agreement.
