Marengo doctor on probation for rude behavior, dishonesty


A doctor in Marengo was placed on a five-year probation and ordered to pay $5,000 after being charged with engaging in a pattern of unprofessional conduct, dishonesty and disruptive behavior.

The Iowa Board of Medicine issued Dr. Gregory P. Neyman, 41, a citation and warning for the charges, ordered him to pay a $5,000 civil penalty and complete a Board-approved professional ethics program.

Neyman was also placed on a five-year probation, subject to counseling and Board monitoring, according to a Board of Medicine press release Tuesday.

According to the Board, Neyman's unprofessional behavior dates back to December 5, 2005, when he was dismissed from his residency training program because of concerns about his professionalism.

Neyman allegedly falsified medical records and staff had concerns about his "truthfulness" and "poor communication," according to the Board.

Neyman's unprofessional behavior continued, according to the Board, between 2009 and 2012, as patients, staff and other physicians reported concerns with Neyman's "truthfulness, poor communication and rude, unprofessional and confrontational behavior."

On Jan. 8, Neyman completed a comprehensive disruptive behavior evaluation at the Professionals Program in Elmhurst, Ill., at the direction of the Board.
