A Wolfe in Physician's Clothing

An affidavit paints a picture of a doctor who saw himself as a prize stud for his female patients instead of a physicians entrusted with their care. The Mississippi Board of Medical Licensure suspended indefinitely the license of Dr. Walter Wolfe last week.  A Board investigator submitted the affidavit to the agency. Dr. Wolfe agreed to the suspension and avoided an evidentiary hearing. He can apply for reinstatement after one year under the statute.   Dr. Wolfe did not appear at the hearing. 

The Board began investigating Dr. Wolfe in November.   The Board accused him of sexual assault and having sex with three patients.  The Mississippi Board of Medical Licensure suspended his license on July 10 after it determined he was an "immediate danger to the public."

Dr. Wolfe attempts to stop the investigation in court ended in futility.   He asked a Hinds County Chancellor to quash all subpoenas and halt the investigation.  Dr. Wolfe argued in an earlier court filing that the Board had no right to investigate the patient's history without a complaint.   The Canton physician asked the court to reinstate his license and issue a temporary restraining order against the Board.  Chancellor Tiffany Grove ruled against his various motions.

The order contains an investigator's affidavit on Dr. Wolfe's conduct.  The affidavit covers three patients.  Two patients had sex with Dr. Wolfe.  He engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior with the third patient.  Two of the patients bore his children - after they became his patients.

Patient #1

Patient #1 became a patient in August 2015.  She was 24 years old while Dr. Wolfe was 57 years old.  She was diagnosed as being pregnant on December 1, 2017.   He employed her at times on an as-needed basis.  However, he didn't provide employment records as requested by the Board.

The affidavit states Patient #1 and Dr. Wolfe began a sexual relationship in 2017.  She became pregnant in October 2017.  He continued to treat her after she became pregnant with his child and after delivery.

The AMA's Code Medical Ethics bans "romantic or sexual interactions" between doctors and patients that take place concurrently with the patient-physician relationship.  Dr. Wolfe should have referred her to another physicians but chose not to do so.

A Physician's Assistant Student reported Dr. Wolfe kissing the patient on the lips during an exam a year ago.  She said it was "common knowledge around the Canton office" that Dr. Wolfe was the father of the patient's unborn child.  The Board obtained a copy of the child's birth certificate.  It stated the father is Dr. Wolfe.

The Board charged him with the following counts:

*Having sex with and impregnating a patient.
* Failing to maintain records for controlled substances prescribed to patient
* Dr. Wolfe gave or prescribed drugs that were addiction-forming for reasons not supported by the medical record.

Patient #2

This woman became a patient of Dr. Wolfe in 2012 when she was 17.  She delivered two children in 2012 and 2014.  Dr. Wolfe provided the medical care for both pregnancies and deliveries.  She began working for Dr. Wolfe as a doula in 2013.  She later worked for him in his office in 2015.  Dr. Wolfe never provided her employment records as directed by the Board.

The woman became pregnant with Dr. Wolfe's child in September 2015.  The woman's husband became suspicious and discovered the affair in August 2015.  The couple divorced.  He sued Dr. Wolfe for alienation of affection.  The case settled last year. 

The affidavit provides some rather graphic and gruesome details of what the patient suffered at the hands of Dr. Wolfe:

She broke up with Dr. Wolfe after the failed abortion. 

The Board charged Dr. Wolfe with several counts:

* Having sex with a patient during the physician-patient relationship.
* Dishonorable conduct likely to deceive or harm the public by inserting the unwanted misoprostol into the patient's vagina.
* Providing controlled substances to patients without maintaining records.

Patient #3

Patient #3 filed a complaint after Dr. Wolfe made "sexually inappropriate remarks."  She had a condition that required immediate surgery in 2011 and was hospitalized.    The affidavit states:

Dr. Wolfe's amorous pursuit of the patient didn't end.   The affidavit continued:

The Board charged Dr. Wolfe with one count of unprofessional conduct and harming the public by "committing sexual impropriety.

Sick, sick, sick. This is the very definition of violation of trust.

Don't feel sorry for him, but I most certainly do for his patients.

Where are all of Wolfe's defenders now? Crickets..............

Please tell me how what he did to Patient #2 (inserted the pills into her vagina to cause her to have an abortion) is NOT a criminal offense. I wonder if law enforcement is investigating this. I wonder if the Medical Licensure Board has a duty to refer this to law enforcement for investigation and possible prosecution.

In my mind, what he did was criminal. After all, didn't he (an OBGYN) attempt to kill an unborn child?

There goes KF again with more rumors.

5:34 - Are you not familiar with supreme court decisions that have ruled abortion is not illegal?

PRO-LIFE said...

@6:07 PM - Yo "bright spark," the expectant mother has to consent first! Idiot!

Mississippi law:

Defines murder to include murder that is done with deliberate design to effect the death of an unborn child.

Provides a list of the criminal offenses, including murder, homicide and assault, in which the definition of “human being” includes an unborn child at every stage of gestation from conception to live birth.

Wolfe doesn't know shit about birth control.

First rule of fooling around: Get snipped.

Anonymous said...

Wait, you are saying he is eligible to request his license in a year? Meaning my mom, wife or daughter might accidentally become his patient?

How is this not an automatic life suspension plus a criminal prosecution?

Bright Spark said...

YO - 6:28; Show me where, in your post of law, consent of the mother is mentioned.

Thanks, Bright Spark.

@7:04, the statute says technically he is eligible to ASK for reinstatement, but you can bet the Board will summarily dismiss it and say, “uh, no.” This is true of all Medical Board suspensions and revocations and while the licensee (or Ex-licensee) is always entailed to ask, the Board can always, and often does, say no.

Yo, @6:07 and 8:09, don’t be a dumbass. Abortion is legal, but the protection for abortion is protection of the mother to terminate her pregnancy. It does not include or protect a person other than the mother who deliberately tries to kill the baby without the mother’s consent. You’re either just trying to make a point and take it to it’s illogical extreme or you’re really that stupid. Either way, you’re wrong.

Bright Spark said...

9:34 - Boy you're eat up with yourself aren't you? Is that your final opinion or would like to call someone who can cite the law. You may want to consider that we had no 'heartbeat law' at the time, assuming it's even legal today. The answer to legal questions are not based on logic.

Citing your opinion that I'm wrong doesn't mean I'm wrong. I may be, but I'd rather hear the explanation from someone who has the facts, not just a smart-ass retort to every post.

It’s not an unborn child, but drugging someone is criminal. May be hard to prove in court now. She may have wanted an abortion and then changed her mind after she did it Could be just trying to set the man up for money since he’s weird. She’s obviously not the most honest witness since she’s an adulterer. Plus she already had 2 kids.

Bright Spark, here you go:
Miss. Code Ann. 41-42-33
(1) No abortion shall be performed or induced except with the voluntary and informed consent of the woman upon whom the abortion is to be performed or induced.

Can't believe all of the drugs (Oxycodone, etc.), including Xanax the doctor prescribed each month (90) for the patient over the course of years, even up to April 2019. According to paragraph 25 of the Medical Board's Affidavit, the patient was hooked on Adderall and she would simply "telephone" the doctor for a script of meds when she wanted it, apparently including the Xanax. She had drugs to speed her up and drugs to slow her down thanks to the doctor.

So, did the doctor get that 20-yr. old patient hooked on Xanax so that she would be conducive to have sex with him in exchange for continuous scripts for drugs? Hello, DEA?

1:37 - Please see post at 12:00 a.m. This throws cold water on your entire thought process. While popping gum in your silk smoking jacket, you're all twisted around the axle of legalities when nothing in your legal theory would survive fifteen minutes in a court room.

So, you're just now realizing this is a rampant, age-old reality in the medical world?

...and when this guy gets his license back, he will be at the top of the list for "Medicare for All" providers. When the government creates false scarcities, the quality of care will suffer and standards will be relaxed in order to provide "free" care for all.

The Board suspended his license on his inappropriate behavior with 3 patients. Women are usually reluctant to report this sort of thing because of the embarrassment of testifying about it. I wonder how many other wives he abused that didn’t report it.

To Full of Himself and Bright Spark, the citation provided by FoH is not a criminal statute (plus, the citation is actually 41-41-33 - YO really oughta check yourself before throwing around words like "idiot and "dumbass").

The following two criminal statutes do clearly apply to the allegations made against the Wolfe in Scrubs:

I. Sexual Battery

Miss. Code Ann. § 97-3-95(2): A person is guilty of sexual battery if he or she engages in sexual penetration with a child under the age of eighteen (18) years if the person is in a position of trust or authority over the child including without limitation the child’s teacher, counselor, physician . . .

Miss. Code Ann. § 97-3-101: (1) Every person who shall be convicted of sexual battery under Section 97-3-95(1)(a), (b) or (2) shall be imprisoned in the State Penitentiary for a period of not more than thirty (30) years

II. The following abortion law has been in effect since 1997:

(1) Any person wilfully and knowingly . . . or attempts to procure or produce an abortion or miscarriage shall be guilty of a felony unless the same were done by a duly licensed, practicing physician:

(a) Where necessary for the preservation of the mother’s life;
(b) Where pregnancy was caused by rape.
Said person shall, upon conviction, be imprisoned in the State Penitentiary not less than one (1) year nor more than ten (10) years . . .

(2) No act prohibited in subsection (1) of this section shall be considered exempt under the provisions of subparagraph (a) thereof unless performed upon the prior advice in writing, of two (2) reputable licensed physicians.

Miss. Code Ann. § 97-3-3

Would suck to find out that this was my wife’s doc.
Awkward conversation, to say the least.

He was my doctor and delivered my child. He was always very cringey & pervy, he made odd comments... it makes me sick thinking he ever had any access to my woman parts.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
