Colleagues & Substance Abuse

Case scenario: I recently joined a communal, long standing practice of a well-respected practitioner in a small town. A few months ago, I noticed and so did several staff members his increasingly erratic and unprofessional behaviour. When I confronted him about these changes, he claimed that he has been under severe personal and family stress, but everything was coming together. Since our initial discussion things have taken a turn for the worse … patients have complained about his rude and abrupt manner, he often does not turn up for scheduled patient appointments ….should I report him?
