GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) - The state Medical Examining Board has denied a hearing on a request by a Greenwich doctor who is a registered sex offender in Connecticut and New York to reinstate his Connecticut medical license.

The Greenwich Time and Connecticut Health I-Team report (https://bit.ly/1t4OJ16 ) that the state Department of Public Health objected to giving a hearing to Clifford A. Berken.

His lawyer did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

Berken, a doctor of internal medicine and gastroenterology, was arrested in New York in 2008.

He pleaded guilty in 2010 to charges by the Westchester County District Attorney’s office in New York that he engaged in sexually explicit online conversations with an undercover officer posing as a 15-year-old boy.

He was sentenced on a charge of attempting to disseminate indecent material to a minor.
