Doctor Sentenced To Probation

posted by John Baibak - 

A Springfield doctor is being  sentenced for illegally sharing patient medical files.  

Rita Luthra of  Longmeadow, a gynecologist, was given one year of probation in federal  court in Springfield on Wednesday.  

Prosecutors say Luthra, who was  convicted by a federal jury in April, allowed a pharmaceutical company  sales representative to access protected health information in her  patients' medical files in 2011.

There has been no comment from attorneys.
