Employee or girlfriend...if you are not the patient's physician...don't go there...according to this article...one more lawsuit and fine for the physician...BD

PITTSFIELD — A Berkshire Medical Center doctor accused of inappropriately reading imagethe medical records of two women co-workers has been reprimanded and fined by the state's medical licensing board.

Dr. Boris Murillo signed a consent order with the Board of Registration in Medicine agreeing to accept the reprimand and pay a $2,500 fine. The settlement resolved a misconduct charge that had been brought to the board alleging that Murillo had violated patient privacy laws.

According to the consent order, Murillo, 41, was involved in a "dating relationship" with a nurse at BMC and twice read her electronic medical records, though she was not his patient.  Murillo also accessed the medical records of a female employee he had seen as a patient, the order states, and read her records 10 times. On at least one occasion, he had no medical reason to do so.
