Cranston Doctor Agrees to Stop Practicing Medicine for Boundary Violations

Robert L. Graves, D.O., has an office at 1150 Reservoir Ave., Ste. 304 and two patients filed complaints against him this month that remain under investigation by the Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline.

A Cranston doctor with two complaints that he committed boundary violations in his Reservoir Avenue practice has agreed to stop practicing medicine, the state Department of Health announced Thursday.

Robert L. Graves, D.O., has an office at 1150 Reservoir Ave., Ste. 304 and two patients filed complaints against him this month that remain under investigation by the Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline.

Graves reportedly admitted to the boundary violation in one complaint but denies any wrongdoing in the other.

According to a signed consent order, Graves agreed to voluntarily not practice medicine here or in any other state, though he "shall continue to be responsible for providing a proper medical home for any of his patients who need continuity of care."

He is also responsible for transferring any medical records of such patients immediately upon request.

The health department did not specify what the boundary violations were.

Boundary violations might include sexual advances, fraternization, giving gifts, revealing too much personal information, treating patients special in some way, improper contact or something that blurs the lines between a professional medical relationship and a personal relationship.
