Dr. Harris E. Foster Jr.’s license has recently been placed on a five-year probation after years of abusing alcohol. Dr. Foster, a physician and Urology professor at Yale School of Medicine, has been reported to the Medical Examination Board after having received information pertaining to Foster’s excessive amount of drinking between 2012 and May of this year. This will mean that he is barred from practicing medicine by himself or in solo practice for five years.

The Yale Cancer Center’s website only lists Dr. Foster as a Urology professor. He will be going through group therapy sessions, as well as random drug and alcohol tests.
