DURHAM, Conn. (WTNH) – A Durham physician voluntarily surrendered her license to practice medicine Friday, ahead of a hearing scheduled next week regarding her previously suspended license.
The Department of Public Health suspended Dr. Sue Mcintosh’s physician license after she was accused of providing fraudulent vaccine exemption forms related to COVID-19, general vaccines, COVID testing, and medical opposition to wearing facial masks.
DPH received an anonymous complaint about Mcintosh, who is a retired physician. There was a unanimous decision to suspend her CT physician and surgeon license.
According to DPH, Mcintosh provided the forms without ever seeing a patient. The paperwork was sent to anyone who provided a self-addressed stamped envelope to her.
“These actions by Dr. Mcintosh are irresponsible and unacceptable,” said DPH Commissioner Manisha Juthani, MD. “Her practice of medicine represents a clear and immediate danger to the public health and safety of our communities. The suspension of her license should serve as a warning to other practitioners that this conduct deviates from the standard of care and is subject to serious discipline.”
The hearing scheduled for her previously suspended license is now canceled.
DPH officials said that any signed, blank exemption forms from Mcintosh are invalid.
