Nortonville doctor has her license revoked by state board

As expected rural Nortonville Dr. Ann K. Neuhaus has had her license revoked by the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts.

The board made the move official last Friday, June 22, at a hearing in Topeka.

Neuhaus is known most for being the former associate of the late abortion doctor George Tiller. She provided referrals to Tiller and performed some abortions herself but has not performed any since 2002. Kansas law requires that a patient seek a second opinion from another doctor before having an abortion.

Neuhaus provided mental examinations of the patients. Opponents have argued that Neuhaus is not a clinical psychiatrist and that her records contained little details or recommendations for treatment other than an abortion. Opponents have said that she used computer software that simply filled in answers to general questions.

In February Neuhaus told the newspaper that she is trained in mental health and had completed a residency.

According to the Associated Press Neuhaus will appeal to the state’s court system to overturn the board’s decision.

The AP also reported that Neuhaus was accompanied by her attorney Robert Eye.

Neuhaus told the newspaper in February that Eye was working on her behalf for free and that he was paying all of her court fees for her.

Eye would not comment on his relationship with Neuhaus or the arrangement they have for compensation when asked about it in February.

Voters may recognize Eye’s name as a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in the Second Congressional District of Kansas. He and two others are running as Democrats to go up against incumbent Republican Lynn Jenkins in November’s general election.
