Dr. Mark Schroeder, a UW-Madison anesthesiologist for UW Health, has permanently surrendered his license to practice medicine and surgery in Wisconsin following an investigation into complaints about his behavior with patients and coworkers.

A summary of the complaints from nurses and assistants said he “likes to be at the ‘bottom of the bed’ and ‘see parts of patients that he does not need to see,’” according to The Wisconsin State Journal.

Schroeder, a 64-year old Madison resident who worked with UW Health for 33 years, surrendered his license and right to renew his license after the state Department of Safety and Professional Services received a caregiver violation complaint against Schroeder in July 2017.

According to the Department of Safety and Professional Service, the complaint “reported a history of concerns about [Schroeder’s] alleged inappropriate interactions.”
