New London Pediatrician Reprimanded

The New Hampshire Board of Medicine has reprimanded a New London pediatrician for her treatment of a child suffering from asthma. Anna M. Konopka, a licensed physician in NH for the last 49 years, must take 14 hours of continuing education over the next six months. In an agreement Konopka signed with the Board of Medicine the doctor denied any misconduct, but acknowledged the board could decide professional misconduct if the case went forward. The board faulted Konopka for not noting her patient’s weight or testing for levels of the medicine Theophylline and said she left the dosing decision up to the child’s parents. The board said Konopka also ordered prescriptions for bronchitis without consulting a pediatric cardiologist.
Konopka is not affiliated with New London Hospital or New London Pediatric Care Center.
