Inappropriate touching, inadequate record keeping, improper public statements and buying cocaine from patients led the Wisconsin Medical Examining board to revoke the licenses of four doctors from 2013 to 2015:

  • Leonard Green III, 2013: Green, of Indianapolis, had his license revoked by the Indiana Medical Licensing Board for a relapse of substance dependence and inappropriate sexual touching of a patient. After he failed to respond to inquiries from the Wisconsin board, it revoked his license.
  • Michael Mangold, 2013: Mangold, of West Bend, failed to produce medical records for an employee on whom he did urinalysis and a vaginal exam. He had been disciplined four times before for improperly evaluating an emergency room patient and failing to maintain patient records.
  • Zulfiqar Ali, 2015: Ali, of Milwaukee, had his license suspended after allegedly putting a breathing tube into the esophagus of a patient who died. A few days after the suspension, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Ali had called the patient’s daughter to say “mess-ups” had caused the death but denied making errors himself. The medical board revoked his license because he discussed the patient on “several public Internet websites, and on his own Facebook page.”
  • Steven Armus, 2015: Armus, of Franksville, was ordered to undergo drug treatment after he was charged with possession of cocaine. As part of a plea deal in federal court, he became a confidential informant for authorities. He bought cocaine from three of his patients, leading to their convictions. The medical board revoked his license, saying he used his role as their doctor to induce them.
