FREEPORT — A local physician was fined $1,000 by the Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine for providing inaccurate information on his application for a medical license.

Dr. Lowell Gerber on Oct. 11 was reprimanded and assessed the civil penalty by the board and the Maine Office of the Attorney General. According to Gerber’s LinkedIn account, he is the medical director and owner of BioIndividual Health Strategies.

The Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine fined Gerber for providing inaccurate and incomplete information on two applications. According to the licensure board, one application was for “reappointment to the medical staff of a facility” and the other was to renew his Maine medical license.

The licensure board didn’t specify which medical staff Gerber was trying to be reappointed to, but he previously worked at Younger Leaner Me in Freeport and at Freeport Cardiology. On the application to be reappointed to a facility’s medical staff, Gerber failed to disclose that he had a pending complaint from the licensure board.

Gerber was reprimanded by the Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine in June 2015 for having a sexual relationship with a patient. The board suspended Gerber’s license for 30 days and put him on probation for five years. A temporary prohibition on Gerber practicing out of his home office or without a chaperone expired in August 2015.

Information about restrictions on Gerber’s home practice was corrected Nov. 28, 2016.
