The Georgia Medical Composite Board has suspended the medical license of local dermatologist Dr. Windell Davis-Boutte; also known as “The Dancing Doctor.”

Attorney Susan Witt is representing Boutte’s former patients, says that The medical board has had evidence of allegations against Boutte for nearly two years. According to the order, the board found that Boutte’s continued practice of medicine posed a threat to the public health, safety, and welfare and imperatively requires emergency action. The decision to suspend Boutte’s license came a day after medical investigators interviewed an Ellenwood woman.   Sherita Cox told state investigators that she suffered a collapsed lung after the doctor performed surgery on her just last week. Cox was hospitalized for seven days receiving treatment for a collapsed lung after enduring three procedures by Boutte on May 30.

The suspended doctor appeared on Headline News and during her interview with News Anchor Mike Galanos, she said “I use music and in these instances, these were all consented videos. They were staged. They were planned,” However, a former patient told WSB-TV that she never signed a form authorizing the doctor to release pictures or videos of her procedure.

There are six pending lawsuits against Boutte and several settlements. According to the medical board, Boutte has 14 days to request an appeal hearing.
