Two Area Doctors Disciplined By Medical Board After Criminal Convictions
Two Southern California doctors who were convicted of crimes have reached disciplinary settlements with the state medical board, according to documents released this week. Dr. Scott Richard Miller, a Cerritos psychiatrist who had sex with a patient, must refrain from treating females for two years as part of his seven years of California Medical Board probation. He pleaded no contest in 2014 to a misdemeanor count of unlawful sexual exploitation of a patient. Dr. Richard Michael Rucker, a Los Alamitos internist who was convicted of drunken driving in 2013, is barred from drinking alcohol or using controlled substances during his four years of board probation.
