NJ Doctor Accused of Unauthorized Medical Research on Disabled is Fired

The doctor accused of performing unauthorized medical research on intellectually disabled residents at a state institution in Union Township has been fired, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Human Services said today.
The doctor, Philip May, was let go last month after he refused to participate in an internal hearing on charges that he abused clients at the Hunterdon Developmental Center, engaged in inappropriate physical contact and falsified documents, the spokeswoman, Nicole Brossoie, said.

May’s lawyer, John A. Azzarello of Chatham, said in an e-mail message last night his client chose instead to challenge the dismissal by seeking a ruling before “a neutral arbiter.”

The department placed May on paid leave in December 2011, but did not bring administrative charges against him until last July 27 after an article in The Star-Ledger cited five sources who said they had direct knowledge of the investigation.
