Board Revokes Cheshire Doc’s License

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – The state Medical Examining Board has revoked a Cheshire doctor’s medical license over allegations he had consensual sex with a drug-addicted patient, continued to prescribe her drugs after she got out of rehab and sent her numerous explicit text messages.

Dr. Jyoji Bristol angrily denied the accusations and vowed to appeal Tuesday’s decision to Superior Court. He questioned why he would do such things that would jeopardize his family. He also said some patients who testified against him had criminal records, some had psychiatric problems and they shouldn’t be believed.

The Medical Examining Board held hearings about Bristol’s alleged conduct last year. Three other female patients accused him of inappropriate sexual conduct.

State investigators also say Bristol repeatedly prescribed opiates to drug-addicted patients without proper examinations in 2008 and 2009.
