Medical License Of NM Doctor In Deadly DWI Crash Suspended

The New Mexico Medical Board has suspended the medical license of a Santa Fe surgeon who pleaded no contest to DWI in a fatal car accident that killed a 4-year-old girl.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the board last week reprimanded Deborah Aaron for allegedly lying about an addiction and failing to enroll in a treatment program after she pleaded no contest in August.

Aaron and the board entered agreed in July that she could keep her medical license if she enrolled in a monitored treatment plan and remained under board supervision.

But the board concluded last month that Aaron has failed to seek treatment.

Aaron said the New Mexico Medical Board's finding of her impairment is "malicious and unfounded."
