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."

The state Medical Quality Assurance Commission says Zilberstein repeatedly sent sexually explicit text messages during surgeries in which he was the responsible anesthesiologist. During one August 6 surgery, Zilberstein exchanged 45 sexually-related messages, according to the commission.
