Dr. Spyros Panos, with offices in Hopewell Junction, Poughkeepsie, and Fishkill New York, has been fired from the Mid Hudson Medical Group “for not meeting..professional standards.” Group President Joseph Garvey said that the group “expects all of our physicians to meet the highest standards of integrity.”

The Garvey would not say why Panos was fired from the medical group, allegations against him in at least one lawsuit claim that he performed surgeries but intentionally did not treat or properly treat patients’ injuries, The Poughkeepsie Journal reported.

One lawsuit was filed after a patient discovered that though they went in for surgery with Panos, their pain continued. When the patient went to a new doctor, that doctor said a surgery had never been performed.

Panos has resigned his surgical privileges at St. Francis Hospital, and Vassar Brothers Medical Center. The Department of Health has said that no state disciplinary action has been taken against Panos, though the agency is unable to report investigations by policy. Because of the health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, Panos’ surgical records are not accessible. disclaimer: This article: Doctor Involved In 7 Malpractice Suits In 5 Years was posted on Friday, September 23rd, 2011 at 7:46 pm at and is filed under Medical Malpractice Lawsuits.
