A West Virginia doctor has been accused of doling out powerful prescription drugs and exposing her fake breasts to employees at her Martinsburg weight loss clinic.
Dr. Tressie Montene Duffy also forced a female employee to “motorboat” her breasts in 2012 and forcefully kissed the worker on the lips, according to a report filed by the West Virginia Board of Medicine in July.
And when the staff member asked Duffy to stop, the 44-year-old Weight and Wellness CEO called her a “t–ty baby,” which prompted the victim to eventually quit.
“Dr. Duffy pulled Complainant R’s head between Dr. Duffy’s breasts and asked Complainant R to ‘motor boat’ her,” according to a 31-page report issued in July by the board, which is considering revoking Duffy’s medical license.
Besides being accused of unprofessional work behavior, Duffy is being investigated for ordering pills for her own use.
It’s alleged she signed blank prescription pads and let staff — some of whom were not doctors — prescribe Xanax, Oxycodone, Valium and Opana when she was out of the office.
The report also claims her medical license lapsed from July 1 to Sept. 18, 2012. It argues that Duffy, whose is “unqualified to continue practicing medicine.”
“The continued licensing of Dr. Duffy to practice medicine and surgery in the state of West Virginia presents a danger to the public due to her violations of the West Virginia Medical Practice Act,” the complaint states.
Duffy’s attorney, Lisa Lilly, told the Charleston Daily Mail that her client “denies any and all wrongdoing,” and claimed it was “not the first time” the board had tried to revoke her license.
She did not reveal further details regarding any possible previous allegations, although the Charleston Daily Mail reports she was charged in 2009 with felony prescription fraud and conspiracy to commit prescription fraud.
The board will meet on Nov. 17 for a three-day hearing to determine Duffy’s future. It will decide whether to accept, reject or modify the report’s findings.
