Hippo What Now?

The doctor who was accused of having sexual relations with some of his patients has plead no contest to misdemeanor dissuading a witness. What the hell? Dr. Zachary Cosgrove had sex with three patients, choked one of them, and threatened to kill another. (Apparently he had his fingers crossed when he took the Hippocratic Oath.) Apparently there were some “serious evidentiary problems” which lead to the plea deal. Dr. Cosgrove was fined $155 (ouch! I hope he can afford it) and three years probation. The medical board has yet to decide if Dr. Zach will ever practice medicine again.

I guess when he said, “Let’s play doctor” he wasn’t kidding.
