Seattle Doctor Suspended For Frequently Sexting During Surgery, Sending Naked Selfies,Masturbating To Medical Images

Seattle-based anesthesiologist, Dr. Arthur Zilberstein’s medical license has been suspended for allegedly sexting during surgeries at Washington’s Swedish Medical Center — and many other alleged infractions including inappropriate relationships with patients, writing unauthorized prescriptions, making racist remarks against a patient and sending a naked selfie while in scrubs.

I think it’s safe to say that if the laundry list of allegations is true, Zilberstein is in fact the world’s most corrupt doctor.

According to a statement by the Health Department:

“Zilberstein frequently exchanged sexually explicit texts during surgeries when he was the responsible anesthesiologist; improperly accessed medical-record imaging for sexual gratification; and had sexual encounters at his workplace…Zilberstein issued at least 29 unauthorized prescriptions for controlled substances and legend drugs outside of his medical practice and didn’t conduct proper evaluations, diagnoses, or treatment plans for these patients…and had sexual relations with one patient for whom he was prescribing drugs. During the investigation, it was found that Zilberstein made disparaging and racist remarks against a patient.”

And if that wasn’t bad enough, Zilberstein also stands accused of sending a selfie in his scrubs, with his hospital badge and exposing his genitals to a patient.

Swedish Medical Center issued the following statement about the complaints against Zilberstein:

“The safety of our patients is our number one priority. Once we learned that the state had suspended this physician’s medical license, the physician’s Medical Staff membership and privileges were immediately suspended. We just recently learned of these allegations and are conducting our own internal review of the physician, who is not directly employed by Swedish.”

    How does one send “a naked selfie while in scrubs”?

    • toni levit

      You are either in scrubs or naked,which one is it?

      • Meghan Courtright

        Right? That’s what I was thinking.

    To take out a dirty cellphone near a surgical site could lead to serious infection. There’s a reason why they use sterile technique and wash their hands for 7-9 minutes before operating. Potentially fatal.

    What were the Drs and surgical staff doing when he was sexting?Someone would have reported that as soon as they left the OR.You are not alone in there.Sounds like some could be made up by an angry girlfriend but the prescriptions would be a major issue and easy to prove.
    Not to say that the sex shinanigans are not awful but I would rather they have serious proof.
