DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Documents from the Iowa Board of Medicine show a Clive gynecologist has agreed to pay $7,500 to settle accusations he interacted inappropriately with patients.

Frederic Sager also has agreed to have a female chaperone present during patient appointments.

The 64-year-old will undergo “professional boundaries” training and psychotherapy. His work will be overseen by another doctor, and he’ll serve five years of professional probation.

The licensing board says Sager had obstetrical patients stay at his Florida vacation home while he was there. It also says he prescribed medications to a woman displaying “drug-seeking behavior.”

The board says he treated a woman after hours when no one was present at his clinic.

Messages seeking comment from Sager and his lawyer were left Thursday by the Des Moines Register (https://dmreg.co/1F50OJW ).
