Doctor who assaulted wife practicing again.

The Dallas Morning News (Dallas, Texas) (via Knight-Ridder/Tribune Business News); 3/8/2006

Byline: Holly Yan

Mar. 8--A Highland Park anesthesiologist whose license was suspended after he assaulted his wife is practicing again. William Scott Blessing, 60, is practicing at Baylor Medical Center at Irving, a hospital spokeswoman said. In March 2005, Dr. Blessing was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. An arrest warrant affidavit stated Dr. Blessing had stopped taking his medication for bipolar disorder, slammed his wife's head on the kitchen floor and threatened to "kill any officer that set foot on his property." Dr. Blessing was sentenced to one year of probation and fined $2,000. The Texas State Board of Medical Examiners indefinitely suspended his license. After completing the board's orders -- which included abstaining from alcohol and seeking psychiatric help -- Dr. Blessing was allowed to return to practice in mid-November but remains on probation by the board, spokeswoman Jill Wiggins said. He did not respond to requests for comment.

The Warning Signs Of An Impending Bipolar Disorder Manic Episode
