Idaho Physician Exonerated in Washington
OLYMPIA, WA - The Washington Medical Commission has determined restrictions it placed on the license of Robert Mena, MD, of Jerome, Idaho, in 2014 no longer had a lawful basis. This determination comes after a March 2019 Idaho Supreme Court decision vacated an order Dr. Mena had with the Idaho State of Board Medicine. The Commission used that order as a basis for its 2014 restrictions. Dr. Mena’s Washington license expired in 2015 and remains expired; however, Dr. Mena’s disciplinary record in Washington will no longer reflect the 2014 action.
Legal documents in this case are available online by visiting the Washington Department of Health Provider Credential Search website. The Washington Medical Commission promotes patient safety and enhances the integrity of the medical profession through licensing, rule-making, discipline, and education.
