- Board of Registration in Medicine
Wakefield — At its meeting on February 11, 2021, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine took disciplinary action against the medical licenses of David Coia, D.O., Richard Choi, M.D., and Jessica Biggie, M.D.
In a Final Decision & Order, the Board reprimanded Dr. Jessica Biggie’s license to practice medicine after the Board found that Dr. Biggie engaged in conduct that undermines the public confidence in the integrity of the medical profession, specifically, Dr. Biggie’s practice of retaining discontinued medication prescribed to students and giving them to other students for who they were not initially prescribed. Dr. Biggie was first licensed in the Commonwealth on November 2000.
In a Consent Order, the Board reprimanded Dr. David Coia’s license to practice medicine after he agreed that he had been disciplined by the Rhode Island Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline for failing to report suspected abuse to the Rhode Island Department of Children Youth and Families as required by Rhode Island law. He was first licensed in the Commonwealth on December 5, 2019. Dr. Coia is also licensed to practice medicine in Rhode Island.
In a Consent Order, the Board reprimanded Dr. Richard Choi’s license to practice medicine after he agreed that he engaged in disruptive behavior on three separate occasions. Dr. Choi was first licensed in the Commonwealth on May 9, 2001. Dr. Choi is also licensed to practice medicine in New Hampshire.
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 email@example.com
