Agreement reached for London doctor

Recommendations set by medical board

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — A London doctor will continue his medical practice after an agreement before the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure.

The final recommendations were made available on Monday which outlines the procedures that Dr. Jackie Maxey must follow when dealing with female patients and doing “sensitive” exams.

According to the report, Maxey will pay for the costs of the hearings before the Medical Licensing board that involved 62 witnesses, including 29 of Maxey’s patients, that occurred over a span of 17 days. Maxey agreed to pay a portion of those costs in the amount of $5,875. He also completed a course at Vanderbilt University Medical Center entitled, ”Maintaining Proper Boundaries” during Aug. 24 through Aug. 26, 2011.

It was also recommended that Maxey compose a written plan for himself and his staff regarding the manner in which any “sensitive” female examinations are conducted and includes he and his staff giving “accurate information” about why such an exam is needed and the method the examination will be conducted. He will also have a chaperone in the room whenever any such exams as pap smear, breast exam, or such is done on a female patient.

A representative of the medical licensing board said Dr. Jackie Maxey has no restrictions on his medical practice at this time because he volunteered to comply with all of the board’s recommendations.

Maxey’s troubles began when another doctor filed a complaint in December  2008 that Maxey was performing excessive female exams. Maxey contended the physician filing the complaint was a competing physician but the medical licensing board did not uphold that claim. Instead, the hearing officer decided that Maxey had performed “an inappropriate and unnecessary pelvic exam” and that Maxey did not adequately explain the purpose and method during some of those exams. Maxey also failed to explain certain remarks he made to some patients, leaving them thinking the remarks were inappropriate and offensive. The hearing officer did not, however, believe Maxey was engaging in sexual misconduct.

The initial 11 patients mentioned in the original complaint filed by Dr. Marc Briere of London Women’s Care were later joined by others in the complaint after a story was published in The Sentinel-Echo newspaper.

In an amended complaint, the board claimed Maxey performed an excessive number of pelvic, pap and breast exams and used those for his own sexual arousement.

Maxey graduated from the University of Louisville School of Medicine in 1996 and did his three-year residency in Dayton, Ohio. He is the owner of Parkway Medical Associates on the Hal Rogers Parkway in London.
