Medical board gives pass to doctors who violate ethics code

Dear Mr. Dougherty,

The Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing (“Division”) has completed the review into the complaints you filed against Dr. Debra Kontny, Dr. Michael Savitt, Dr. Ilona Farr, and Dr. John Nolte.

The Division, in consultation with a licensed member of the Board, reviewed your complaints, along with other information gathered during the inquiry. The reviewing Board member determined the above doctors were not unprofessional or unethical.  It was determined that there were no violations to the statutes or regulations governing Dr. Debra Kontny, Dr. Michael Savitt, Dr. Ilona Farr, and Dr. John Nolte’s professional license and your complaint is now closed in our Division.

Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. Should you have any questions regarding this matter, you may contact me directly via email
