Sydney psychiatrist Neil Schultz loses license for sex with patient

Filed under: Uncategorized — Psych Crime Reporter @ 1:52 pm

On or about May 7, 2012, the New South Wales Medical Tribunal struck psychiatrist Neil Schultz from the medical register after it was found he’d engaged in a sexual affair with a 25-year-old patient, with whom he also took the drug Ecstasy.

The Tribunal also found that he prescribed narcotics and antipsychotic drugs to her even after he stopped consulting her, despite knowing she had a history of drug abuse.

Further, he admitted he hired her to do administrative work for him, paying her $20,000 and buying her a car.

Schultz had been investigated for having an affair with a married patient when he was a trainee psychiatrist.

He may not petition for reinstatement of his license for 18 months.
