NEW LONDON, NH (WBZ-AM) An 84-year-old New Hampshire doctor who was recently denied to practice medicine tells WBZ NewsRadio that she plans on appealing the judge’s decision.
Dr. Anna Konopka's has been practicing medicine in the U.S for 55 years and was recently denied an injunction to get her license.
Part of the problem is that Konopka's keeps her records on paper and not on the computer.
She says her files are in-order and it does not affect the care she delivers.
“Computerized medicine, it is for the system and not for the patients,” she said.
Having electronic records is part of a requirement under the state’s Drug Monitoring Program. It was signed into law in 2014, and requires prescribers of opioids to register in an effort reduce overdoses.
There has also been questions about Konopka's medical decisions.
“I am using my intellect and my brain and my experience and making very good diagnosis,” she said.
Konopka, who received her medical training in Poland, said she plans on appealing the recently decision in at the state’s superior court and Supreme Court if she has to.
“I’m going to fight for the sake of my patients,” she said.
