A doctor who worked at various Family Planning Associates clinics, including in Fresno and Bakersfield according to online records, has surrendered his license after the state medical board accused him of injuring a woman while performing an abortion where he could not clearly see what he was doing.
The patient was rushed to a hospital, where she suffered cardiac arrest and was resuscitated.
Donald Clyde Willis admitted each allegation brought against him by the Medical Board of California was true in surrendering his physician’s and surgeon’s certificate, according to board documents. The board’s order accepting the surrender of his license took effect Nov. 25.
The accusation brought against Willis stemmed from his treatment of three patients in 2017. It alleged gross negligence, repeated negligent acts and failure to maintain adequate and accurate medical records.
It’s unclear if any of the incidents occurred in Fresno or Bakersfield.
