State: Seattle doctor sent nude 'selfies,' 'sexted' during surgery

A Seattle doctor's license has been suspended as he faces accusations of sending nude "selfies" to a patient and "sexting" during surgeries.

According to the Washington State Department of Health, anesthesiologist Arthur Zilberstein "compromised patient safety due to his preoccupation with sexual matters while he was on hospital duty between at least April and August 2013."
