Appeals Court upholds sanctions against doctor

Legal News Updates Posted on

An appeals court has upheld sanctions against a former University of Wisconsin Hospital doctor who was accused of fondling female patients.

The 4th District Court of Appeals said in its decision Thursday that the state Medical Examining Board properly sanctioned Dr. Frank Salvi in 2009. He was suspended for 90 days and required to undergo a mental evaluation and five years of supervision.

Salvi denied charges made by four female patients that accused him of fondling them in 2004 and 2005.

A Dane County judge ruled last year that the state medical board improperly sanctioned Salvi, but the board appealed. The Appeals Court reversed that decision, saying the board properly disciplined Salvi.

Salvi's attorney Lester Pines had not seen the decision and had no immediate comment.
