On January 18, 2013, the Ohio Board of Psychology reprimanded Robert Davis, M.A. for issues of negligence and competence.
The Board’s document states that Davis was referred by a local non-profit foster care agency to conduct an evaluation of a married couple who were applying to become foster parents.
Davis conducted testing and evaluation but billed for individual psychotherapy. He provided scant evaluations to the agency and, when requested by the agency to provide more information, again did not provide enough.
When the agency requested an evaluation of the test results, Davis advised the agency he would be charging them an additional $100 per person for “the extra work.” When the agency did not pay, he attempted to bill the couple, though he had not obtained their consent with regard to his billing practices.
