State revokes Faulkner cardiologist’s license after affair

The state Board of Registration in Medicine has revoked the license of a 54-year-old Faulkner Hospital cardiologist and internist after finding that he engaged in a sexual relationship with a female patient who was also a co-worker.

Dr. Gary Brockington, who has been affiliated with Faulkner since 1990, will have until Dec. 11 to close his practice “in an orderly fashion,” according to a statement released by the board this week.
