NJ Doctor in Research Flap Has License Suspended
A doctor accused of conducting unauthorized research on patients at a center for the developmentally delayed has had his license suspended.
New Jersey’s Board of Medical Examiners announced the suspension of Philip May’s license on Friday.
May was suspended with pay from the Hunterdon Development Center this month. He is also the subject of a criminal investigation.
May has been accused of giving vitamin D supplements to residents as part of unapproved research.
Earlier this year, May wrote an article on low mineral bone density and low vitamin D in patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The article for the American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry said people with severe developmental disabilities are at high risk for vitamin D deficiency.
May’s attorney didn’t return a message seeking comment Friday.
