QUOTES FROM DISCIPLINARY ACTION DOCUMENTS

--"Suspension for a minimum of ninety (90) days beginning ten (10) days from the date of the order with terms and conditions. The Board found the physician guilty of unprofessional conduct in the practice of medicine based upon a physical assault he committed in 1998 and a vehicular assault he committed in 2009 and the physician's failure to fulfill conditions of a 2009 hospital consent agreement. The Board dismissed the charge related to providing professional services while using a CDS."

--"The WMHS first suspended Dr. Cendo after he physically attacked another orthopedic surgeon at the hospital in 1998."  (Pg 2, 1/24/2012 order)

--"In the latest incident, Dr. Cendo was involved in an argument with the husband of an emergency room patient over parking.  Dr. Cendo, who had just performed surgery at the hospital, and was on his way to see other patients, reacted to a derogatory hand gesture from the patient's husband by quickly accelerating his 2003 Porsche towards him and a hospital security guard as they stood behind the patient's husband's car.  Dr. Cendo stopped his Porsche only a very short distance from them, threatening bodily harm to both."  (pg 2-3, 1/24/2012 order)

--"The ALJ found that Dr. Cendo's conduct was not only impulsive, aggressive, and inappropriate, but that his conduct occurred in the practice of medicine.  The Board agrees."  (Pg 6, 1/24/2012 order)
