The Board charged Dr. Chmielewski with being convicted of a felony in violation of the laws and rules governing the practice of medicine in Iowa.  On April 17, 2019, Dr. Chmielewski was convicted of two felony counts of aggravated battery in the Kansas District Court for Johnson County.  Dr. Chmielewski was sentenced to thirty (30) days in jail and thirty-six (36) months of probation.   Under the terms of the March 26, 2020, combined Statement of Charges and Settlement Agreement, the Board issued Dr. Chmielewski a Citation and Warning and he voluntarily surrendered his Iowa medical license.

Barry R. De Young, M.D., a 60-year-old Iowa-licensed physician who formerly practiced anatomic pathology entered into a combined Statement of Charges and Settlement Agreement with the Board on March 26, 2020. The Board charged Dr. De Young with being disciplined by another state licensing authority in violation of the laws and rules governing the practice of medicine in Iowa.  On September 17, 2019, Dr. De Young entered into a Consent Order with the North Carolina Medical Board (North Carolina Board).  The North Carolina Board alleged that Dr. De Young misdiagnosed two patients with breast cancer from tissue obtained from biopsies, failed to timely assess tissue samples obtained during surgery for possible cancer, and asked a resident physician to lie for him to account for the delay.  The North Carolina Board suspended Dr. De Young’s medical license for one year, all but thirty days were stayed, and ordered him to complete a Board-approved professional ethics program prior to reapplying to reinstate his North Carolina medical license.  Under the terms of the March 26, 2020, combined Statement of Charges and Settlement Agreement, the Iowa Board issued Dr. De Young a Citation and Warning and ordered him to provide written notice to the Board at least thirty days prior to applying for reactivation of his Iowa medical license.

Mary Pat Rosman, D.O., a 63-year-old Iowa-licensed physician who formerly practiced family medicine in Sibley, Iowa, entered into a Settlement Agreement with the Board on March 26, 2020.  On December 20, 2019, the Board filed a Statement of Charges against Dr. Rosman alleging that she violated the laws and rules governing the practice of medicine in Iowa when she improperly managed medical records while practicing medicine in Sibley, Iowa.  Under the terms of the March 26, 2020, Settlement Agreement, the Board issued Dr. Rosman a Citation and Warning and placed her on probation for a period of five years subject to Board monitoring.  Dr. Rosman is also prohibited from prescribing, administering, or dispensing controlled substances for the treatment of chronic pain under her Iowa medical license until and unless she demonstrates to the Board that she is competent to provide such care with reasonable skill and safety and receives written approval from the Board.  Dr. Rosman is also permanently prohibited from engaging in the practice of telemedicine.  Dr. Rosman is also prohibited from engaging in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease or treating patients she previously treated for Lyme disease until and unless she demonstrates to the Board that she is competent to provide such care with reasonable skill and safety and she receives prior written approval from the Board.  Dr. Rosman also may only practice medicine at locations approved by the Board.
