CLIFTON, N.J. -- A Clifton anesthesiologist who denies inappropriate sexual behavior with a patient nonetheless agreed to having his license suspended rather than go through a formal proceeding.

Dr. Jadan H. Abbassi agreed to the move to settle alleged violations of the State Board of Medical Examiners sexual misconduct regulations, while insisting he was innocent, Attorney General Christopher Porrino said Monday.

Authorties accused him of "inappropriate behavior of a sexual nature with a patient during the first six months of 2015," the attorney general said.

If proven, such conduct "would constitute violations of the Board’s sexual misconduct regulation; gross or repeated malpractice; and professional misconduct that would support a license suspension or revocation," he said.

"Effective immediately, he may not accept any new patients into his practice and must treat all current female patients only in presence of a Board-approved chaperone," Porrino said.

He also can't prescribe medication, the attorney general said.

The investigations were conducted by the Enforcement Bureau of the Division of Consumer Affairs.

Deputy Attorney General Christopher Salloum from the Division of Law represented the state.
