State takes disciplinary action against health
The Washington State Department of Health has taken disciplinary actions against two Yakima County health care providers.
In March the state's unlicensed practice program issued a notice of intent to issue a cease and desist order against Alejandro "Alex" Guzman. He allegedly offered and performed massages to the public for a fee. State officials say Guzman does not have a license to practice as a massage practitioner.
Also in March, the state's pharmacy board charged pharmacist Judith Wolfe with unprofessional conduct. Wolfe is being charged with diverting controlled substances and legend drugs from her work place for her own use.
