An anesthesiologist has been suspended by the Washington state Medical Quality Assurance Commission over allegations that he regularly sends sexually explicit texts — during surgery.

Dr. Arthur K. Zilberstein has 20 days to respond to the commission and to request a hearing, the Associated Press reported.

The state Health Department asserted via a statement that the doctor’s “preoccupation with sexual matters” put his patients at risk, AP reported. The alleged infractions are said to have occurred between April and August 2013.
