‘Beat them’: Paediatrician guilty of misconduct after ADHD advice

Dr David Evan Roberts was reported to the Medical Board of Australia after another doctor was anonymously sent a consultation note he gave the boys’ mother in 2010.

The note said: “I recommend to your husband that he beat (physically) each and any of you our [sic] sons who swear and offend his wife (that is mother)… to within an inch of his life.”
