WAKEFIELDAt its meeting on January 6, 2022, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine took disciplinary action against the medical license of Arash H. Niktarash, M.D.

In a Consent Order, the Board reprimanded Dr. Arash Niktarash. after he agreed that he had been disciplined by the Colorado Medical Board for reasons substantially similar to those for which Massachusetts could impose discipline, to wit, for failing to refer a patient with a possible cardiac arrythmia to a cardiologist and failing to maintain a complete medical record for this patient. Dr. Niktarash was licensed to practice medicine in the Commonwealth from April 10, 2013 until August 10, 2018 when he did not renew his license.  He currently practices medicine in Colorado.

The Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine licenses more than 40,000 physicians, osteopaths and acupuncturists.  The Board was created in 1894 to protect the public health and safety by setting standards for the practice of medicine and ensuring that doctors who practice in the Commonwealth are appropriately qualified and competent. The Board investigates complaints and determines sanctions. More information is available at www.mass.gov/massmedboard, or you may contact the Board at borimmedia@massmail.state.ma.us .
