VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A Virginia Beach ophthalmologist who allowed unlicensed workers to perform skin laser procedures and Botox injections at three clinics has received a one-month suspension of his medical license.

The state Board of Medicine also fined Dr. Matthew Mitsch $15,000.

The board says Mitsch failed to oversee procedures at American Laser locations in Richmond, Fredericksburg and Virginia Beach.

The Virginian-Pilot (https://bit.ly/1p3nsXb ) reports that in 2009 the board imposed a reprimand and $3,000 penalty on Mitsch for the same violation.
