Abortion Doctor's License Restored


Dr. Mansour Panah’s license has been restored.

He was the medical director for a group of Maryland abortion clinics.

WBOC reports that the Maryland Board of Physicians’ online records found no substantial likelihood of risk of serious harm to the public.

The clinics were shut down when a patient died at one of the facilities and regulators found lax procedures at all four.

He was 1 of 3 doctors working for Associates in OB/GYN Care whose licenses were suspended.

Meanwhile, the board upheld the license suspension of Dr. Michael Basco while the license for a third doctor Iris Dominy is still in summary suspension.
