SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Board of Medicine’s Statement of Charges contained two counts against a former surgeon in 2009.

Adel-Al-Jurf, former surgeon in Iowa City, is now seeking judicial review because of a press release issued by the Board of Medicine on Jan. 26.

In May 2009, the Iowa Board of Medicine’s Statement of Charges contained two counts against Al-Jurf. The counts included engaging “in unprofessional conduct in the practice of medicine” and for engaging in “disruptive behavior.”

But in the press release on Jan. 26, the board included facts of the original charges against Al-Jurf, while failing to include any of the mitigating facts found after the hearing.

Al-Jurf is now seeking judicial review against the board claiming that “the press release prejudiced his substantial rights and was an abuse of discretion.”
