Spokane physician assistant license revoked for sexual misconduct
SPOKANE, Wash. — The Washington Medical Commission has permanently revoked the medical license of a Spokane physician assistant.
Back in March, Joseph Sutton had his license suspended for sexual misconduct, abuse of a patient, practice below the standard of care, and unauthorized use and disclosure of protected health information.
In February 2022, the WMC issued Sutton a statement of charges which found the PA used his position of power and trust to engage in sexual boundaries violations that compromised the patient-provider relationship on numerous occasions.
The Commissioners found that Sutton could not be rehabilitated and permanently revoked his Physician Assistant credential.
