Liberal Doctor Disciplined

KSCB News - November 10, 2009 12:00 am

(AP) – The Kansas State Board of Healing Arts has

taken disciplinary action against a southwest Kansas doctor over

billing issues.

Dr. Sharon Mitchell has been practicing internal medicine for

about eight years in Liberal.

Under a consent order, she will be required to complete a

continuing education course for billing and coding. An independent

audit reviewer will supply a monthly report to the Board of Healing

Arts, with Mitchell paying the cost of the audit work.

Mitchell said she had not personally handled the billings and

wasn’t aware there were problems.

She can seek to modify or end the provisions of the consent

order after three years.
