Psychiatrist William J. Kafin loses medical license in another state

Filed under: Uncategorized — Psych Crime Reporter @ 1:54 pm

On February 17, 2014, the Florida Board of Medicine revoked the license of psychiatrist William J. Kafin relative to disciplinary action taken against him in the state of Illinois, his failure to report the disciplinary action the Florida Board and his failure to respond to the Florida Board’s complaint.

On February 15, 2013, the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation suspended Kafin’s license for at least three years and ordered him to pay a fine of $5,000 for violations related to a sexual relationship with a patient (described in news media as being 19 years old), constituting gross negligence, unethical conduct and immoral conduct in the treatment of a patient.
