The Maryland Board of Physicians put patients at risk by licensing a physician who had served three and a half years in a Florida prison for raping a woman at gunpoint, according to a report released Wednesday. Dr. William T. Dando, 60, of Rawlings, permanently surrendered his Maryland license in September to resolve charges he sexually assaulted a female patient at a walk-in clinic in LaVale in April. He is fighting lawsuits alleging he sexually assaulted another woman patient at the same clinic last year, and that he caused the death of a Baltimore County woman who died of a prescription-drug overdose in 2010. The state board learned during the review process that Dando had been “arrested in 1987, charged with a felony and convicted,” said the report, but accepted his explanation that he had simply committed an “assault while under the influence of alcohol” and granted him a license.
