This might technically be News, but I refuse to put it in that category.

State of California Investigating Dr. Phil

A complaint has been filed against Dr. Phil with the California Board of Psychology.

The complaint reportedly accuses Dr. Phil McGraw of practicing without a license when he visited Britney Spears at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after her meltdown earlier this month, according to TMZ.com.

Dr. Phil is also accused of violating the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. The complaint alleges Dr. Phil practiced clinical psychology without a license and further violated doctor-patient privilege by discussing the pop star’s case with the media.

Dr. Phil has never been licensed to practice in California, and he is no longer licensed in his home state of Texas.

McGraw failed to complete the conditions imposed as disciplinary sanctions by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists in 1989.

At that time a former therapy client had filed a complaint against him, claiming their relationship was inappropriate.

McGraw later admitted giving her a job but denied touching her.

Soon after he was officially reprimanded, McGraw closed his private practice.

To quote Bugs Bunny: “What a maroon!”

Well licensed or not he did violate her privacy.  Some things are just none of everybody’s business.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

Dr. Phil talks with an honesty you just don’t see.  Many people need that to help face up to their problems

Technically…Britney was never his patient…so he didn’t violate.  All reps & info coming from Britney’s side said he was not treating her.

Still as a nurse, even if a person is not my patient, there are things I just would not tell.  Abuse and suicide threats have to be reported to the right people but otherwise I think Dr. Phill just wants the ambient press.
