Decision Board of Registration in Medicine v. Provow, Cynthia (RM-13-510) - Ruling on Respondent’s Motion for Reconsideration

Date: 02/09/2018
Organization: Division of Administrative Law Appeals
Docket Number: RM-13-510

Ruling on Respondent's Motion for Reconsideration

On August 22, 2016, I issued an Order of Default/Recommended Decision in the above-numbered appeal.  On January 30, 2018, I received the attached letter from counsel for the Respondent which has been marked “Attachment A.”  I had also received an email from the Respondent on August 11, 2017 pertaining to the same issue, the date of the Petitioner’s treatment of Patient A.  (Attachment B.) I interpret this document from the Respondent as a Motion for Reconsideration within the meaning of 801 CMR 1.01(7)(j)(1). 

Accordingly, I have reviewed both the Statement of Allegations and the Stipulation of the Parties.  Based upon said review, I hereby revise the fifth line of my original Order of Default/Recommended Decision to reflect that the Respondent began treating Patient A on April 1, 2009, and not April 9, 2013, as I originally stated.  I have enclosed the corrected first page of the August 22, 2016 Order of Default. 

Additionally, I apologize for any difficulties this scrivener’s error has caused the Petitioner in her attempts to procure employment in the State of New York and I wish her well in her endeavors. 

The Respondent’s Motion for Reconsideration is ALLOWED.

Division of Administrative Law Appeals,



Judithann Burke

Administrative Magistrate
