Professionals are expected to behave a little better than everyone else. They are put in positions of trust, so when they screw up, the public is supposed to know.

Scott Ispirescu, who practices at 27401 Los Altos, was punished for asking a female patient on a date and telling her to start seeing a new psychiatrist back in 2010, according to an allegation submitted to the state medical board.
But there are no notes saying he referred her to another psychiatrist or stopped treating her, according to the accusation.
