LANDIS — A Landis doctor has been reprimanded by the N.C. Medical Board for having an inappropriate relationship with an employee.
Dr. Eric Troyer, who practices at Troyer Medical on South Central Avenue, declined to comment on the reprimand when contacted this morning by the Post.
According to a consent order approved by the state Medical Board at its February meeting, Troyer admitted that he and his employee started the “intimate and inappropriate” relationship in 2007 while he owned Main Street Family Practice in China Grove.
The employee is not identified in the Medical Board document.
According to the consent order, Troyer acknowledged the unprofessional conduct which is grounds for the board to take action up to revoking his license to practice medicine.
To avoid further action, Troyer agreed to the reprimand, which requires him to take a continuing medical education course on ethics and maintaining proper boundaries.
He is also required to notify the board in writing of any change in his residence or the location of his practice, meet with board members for informal interviews at their request, and obey all rules and regulations regarding the practice of medicine.
If Troyer violates any of the terms, the board could again consider suspending or revoking his license, according to the consent order.
The reprimand will be reported to the Federation of State Medical Boards, the National Practitioner’s Data Bank, the Healthcare Integrity and Protection Data Bank and other agencies that collect information on medical practitioners, the order says.
