The Department of Health announced on Friday that Said Farzad’s license was suspended following a series of troubling reports of threats and inappropriate behavior with underage patients.
The Tacoma News Tribune reported that Farzad, 63, faces charges of telephone harassment in Snohomish County.
Authorities say Farzad threatened employees of insurance provider Molina Health Care. In a series of phone calls in April and May, Farzad complained about paperwork problems associated with his patients, and then began threatening to shoot employees. He was arrested by Bothell police on Tuesday.
The department also says that Farzad befriended an underage girl, telling her she was beautiful and made inappropriate comments about her sexual habits.
Farzad couldn’t be reached for comment.
