Dear Mr. Freedman:
The Council of the Washington Psychiatric Society, based on the recommendation of its Grievance Committee, has decided to close the complaint that you filed against one of our members, Albert Taub.
The Council concluded that Dr. Taub had no obligation to sign the statement that you requested him to sign. The Council found no ethical or other practice violation in his professional conduct in this matter.
We want to thank you for your letter bringing this matter to our attention. It is by consideration of such issues brought before us that we are able to ensure the highest quality of psychiatric care in the community.
Eliot Sorel, M.D.
At the time this letter was written the late Lawrence C. Sack, M.D., one of my former treating psychiatrists, served as Assembly Representative at the Society.
