NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

Mr. Shiosaki presented a bottle of nutritional supplements he had obtained from a chiropractor.  He was troubled by the fact that this bottle was mislabeled, though he did not want to file a complaint.  The rest of the board members advised Mr. Shiosaki that he should notify the doctor who sold this supplement and inform him that it is mislabeled, as there may be a problem with the supplier.

Dr. Sterling, as Chairman of the Peer Review Committee, recused himself from discussion on Harold Roberts.

Dr. Mayo moved that a letter be sent to Mr. Roberts detailing that his participation in the review in question was inappropriate behavior of a Peer Review Committee member and that he be removed from said committee.  Dr. Moldenhauer seconded and the motion carried.

Dr. Mayo moved that a letter be sent to the chiropractic physician in question and inform him that if he would like to contest his peer review, the appropriate route is to file an official appeal with the committee.  Dr. Moldenhauer seconded and the motion carried.
