The report card for each state contains the scores it received when we evaluated it for how well it protects patients against sexually abusive doctors. The overall rating is the average of the score the state received in each category. In states with two medical boards, one for osteopathic physicians and the other for medical doctors, the overall rating is based on an average of each board’s scores.

The medical board ordered the OB/gyn to undergo a mental and physical examination, and results revealed that he admitted to having sexual relations with two female patients and boundary violations with a third patient.
The examiners recommended an intensive program of treatment for sexual misconduct, and the board suspended him while he underwent treatment in 2010.
In 2011, the board received information Ulbrich may have been practicing medicine while his license was suspended. While he denied that, he admitted being present at Botox parties, where his patients received injections of Botox by an unlicensed person at a home. Still, the board allowed him to return to practice, on probation. All restrictions were lifted in 2015.
The board’s website shows that Ulbrich practices in Peachtree City, Ga.

“Maybe I am a pervert, I honestly don’t know.”
— Dr. Donald Ray Taylor to Kennestone Wellstar Hospital, after he was accused of pinching female patients’ nipples with a hemostat, supposedly to check their responsiveness to anesthesia; unnecessarily exposing female patients’ breasts during medical procedures; and subjecting young females to rectal and vaginal exams for no apparent medical reason. The medical board monitored him from 2000 to about 2008. Then in 2013 it found he had engaged in professional sexual misconduct with a patient and an employee. After a brief suspension, the board placed him on probation. He is still actively licensed in Georgia.

Doctors are banned from sexual contact with former patients if they use or exploit the trust, knowledge, emotions or influence gained from the prior professional relationship. Our reporting in Georgia includes an investigation against a DeKalb County physician that began with an internet radio listener, how an undercover GBI agent posed as a patient to nab a serial abuser, and how one Metro Atlanta physician continues to practice despite repeated accusations spanning three decades.
