WakefieldAt its meeting on January 14, 2021, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine took disciplinary action against the medical licenses of Moutaz Almawaldi, M.D. and Jonathan Kiev, M.D.

In a Final Decision & Order, the Board revoked Dr. Moutaz Almawaldi’s right to renew his license to practice medicine after the Board found that Dr. Almawaldi had been disciplined by the California Board of Medicine after being convicted of one count of misdemeanor sexual battery and required to register as a sex offender. Dr. Almawaldi was licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts from November 5, 1997 until he failed to renew his license on June 26, 2006.   He last practiced medicine in California.

In a Consent Order, the Board reprimanded Dr. Jonathan Kiev’s license to practice medicine after he agreed that he had been disciplined by the Department of Financial and Professional Regulation of the State of Illinois for prescribing to two individuals who were not his patients and for whom he did not maintain any medical records. He was first licensed in the Commonwealth on June 18, 2003. Dr. Kiev is currently practicing medicine in Kentucky.

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
