  • Board of Registration in Medicine

WakefieldAt its meeting on November 22, 2019, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine took disciplinary action against the medical licenses of Atif B. Malik, M.D. and Elad Anter, M.D.

In a Final Decision & Order, the Board revoked Dr. Atif  B. Malik’s right to renew his license to practice medicine after it found that Dr. Malik had been convicted of, among other things, several counts of violating the Anti-Kickback Act through receipt of unlawful remuneration. The Board also found that Dr. Malik was disciplined in Pennsylvania for this criminal activity. Dr. Malik, who practiced pain management, was licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts from June 2002 until October 2006. He last practiced medicine in Maryland.

The Board also admonished Dr. Elad Anter after he acknowledged in a Consent Order that he had acted unprofessionally while performing a procedure on a patient. Dr. Anter has been licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts since April 2011.  He currently practices medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.  

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 the Board at
