A second local has admitted to reusing single-use needle guides.  Doctor Laurence Newman has gone to the state Medical Board and contacted patients, offering to test them for HIV and hepatitis at no charge.

Newman claims a vendor told him he could sterilize and reuse the guides for prostate biopsies.  The same claim has been made by another local doctor, Michael kaplan, whose license has been suspended.

The medical board is now investigating Newman.
