  • Board of Registration in Medicine

WAKEFIELDAt its meeting on January 11, 2018, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine took disciplinary action against the medical licenses of

Harvey J. Makadon, M.D. and Emad S. Aljahdli, M.D.

The Board accepted the resignation of Dr. Harvey J. Makadon’s license to practice medicine. Resignation is a disciplinary action that permanently removes a physician from the practice of medicine. Dr. Makadon was first licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts in July 1979.

In a Final Decision & Order, the Board reprimanded and fined Dr. Emad S. Aljahdli after he acknowledged in a Stipulation that he had engaged in conduct that undermines the public confidence in the integrity of the medical profession by agreeing to pay for sexual services.  The fine of $5,000 is due within sixty days.  Dr. Aljahdli was licensed in Massachusetts from December 4, 2013 until February 9, 2017 when he failed to renew his license.

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, or you may contact Bridgette Sanders at
