Wakefield — At its meeting on October 26, 2017, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine took disciplinary action against the medical licenses of Brian P. McKeon, M.D., Gretchen E. Frauenberger, M.D., and Michael R. England, M.D.

In a Consent Order, the Board admonished Dr. Brian McKeon’s medical license after he failed to disclose criminal offenses or charges on his renewal application.  Dr. McKeon was also required to complete continuing professional development credits. Dr. McKeon has been licensed in Massachusetts since May, 1998.  He currently practices at Boston Sports and Shoulder Center in Waltham.

The Board accepted the resignation of the licenses to practice medicine of Dr. Michael R. England and Dr. Gretchen E. Frauenberger. Resignation is a disciplinary action that permanently removes a physician from the practice of medicine. Dr. England has been licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts since 1980 and practiced at Tufts Medical Center until May 31, 2017.   He is also licensed to practice medicine in Maine.  Dr. Frauenberger has been licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts since 1969.  Dr. Frauenberger recently practiced in Medfield.

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 Bridgette Sanders at bridgette.sanders@massmail.state.ma.us
