WAKEFIELDAt its meeting on June 2, 2022, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine took disciplinary action against the medical licenses of Scott D. Dreiker, M.D. and John J. Diggins, M.D.

The Board suspended Dr. Scott D. Dreiker’s license to practice medicine after he agreed in a Consent Order that he engaged in disruptive behavior while practicing medicine. The suspension was immediately stayed upon Dr. Dreiker’s entry into a Probation Agreement. Dr. Dreiker was first licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts on August 10, 1992. He is currently employed by Steward Medical Group (SMG) Middleboro Multispecialty Group.

In a Final Decision and Order, the Board admonished Dr. John J. Diggins’ medical license and imposed practice restrictions after the Board found that Dr. Diggins failed to maintain up-to-date medical records and committed the crime of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol, a second offense. The practice restriction includes engaging in medical practice only pursuant to a Board-approved practice plan with monitoring. Dr. Diggins was first licensed to practice medicine in the Commonwealth on November 19, 2008.  He is currently employed at UMass Memorial – Harrington Hospital in Southbridge.

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.
