Orange County Register

An anesthesiologist at UC Irvine Medical Center was disciplined Thursday by the California Medical Board for falsely pre-filling out a patient record before surgery. Dr. Peter Breen, former chairman of the anesthesiology department, reached a settlement with the board for a public letter of reprimand, the least severe form of discipline. Neither Breen nor his attorney, Peter Osinoff, could be reached for comment Thursday.
