Rochester Docter Reprimanded

A Rochester doctor was reprimanded by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice in November, the board said Friday.
Dr. Michael M. Priebe, 50, was reprimanded by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice for having sex with one of his patients, the Star Tribune said.
Priebe admitted that he had a sexual relationship with one of his female patients in 2009. At least one of the sexual incidents had occurred at his place of medical practice, the Pioneer Press said.
The woman was being treated by Priebe, a rehabilitation specialist, for injuries due to a car accident. State law says that doctors are never allowed to have sexual relations with patients, the Star Tribune said.
Priebe gave his cell phone and pager number to the woman and went to dinner with her, the Star Tribune said.
Priebe will now have to have a female present when examining female patients, has to take a class on ethics, and pay a fine of over $1,800, the Star Tribune said.
