He did what?

The New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners – which operates within the State Division of Consumer Affairs – has temporarily suspended the license of Dr. Philip May, who is under investigation by the Jersey Department of Human Services for allegedly conducting unauthorized research on patients with intellectual disabilities at the Hunterdon Developmental Center.

State Attorney General Jeff Chiesa says “the alleged abuse of patients with intellectual disabilities, by a physician who was in a position of authority, is deeply troubling, and the Board of Medical Examiners was correct to act when the charges were filed.”

May does not practice medicine privately, but worked at the Hunterdon Development Center until he was suspended without pay earlier this month.

The Department of Human Services is seeking his removal.  May’s lawyers told the Board of Medical Examiners that he is also the subject of a criminal investigation, related to the same matter.

Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs boss Eric Kanefsky says “by taking this immediate action, the Board of Medical Examiners has helped ensure that a doctor who is suspended by his current employer, will not be able to begin practicing elsewhere in New Jersey until the Board members reach a final  decision on the allegations.”

Consumers who believe they have been cheated or scammed by a business, or suspect any other form of consumer abuse, can file a complaint with the State Division of Consumer Affairs by visiting its website or by calling 1-800-242-5846 (toll free within New Jersey ) or 973-504-6200.
