September 28, 2018 – The Dept. of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) in conjunction with the Michigan Attorney General’s Office, issued a consent order against Gary Stollak, in which he permanently surrendered his psychology license.  

LARA investigated allegations that Stollak failed to inform authorities of the suspected abuse of a minor patient by Larry Nassar.

Stollack did not contest a finding that he violated the Public Health Code due to conduct that constituted negligence or a failure to exercise due care (16221(a) of the Public Health Code) and permanently surrendered his license. 

The Disciplinary Subcommittee of the Board of Psychology approved the consent order at their scheduled board meeting on September 27, 2018.

As part of the consent order, Stollak’s license to practice psychology cannot be reinstated, reissued or reactivated at any future date.

LARA encourages all concerned residents, patients, parents and peers to file complaints against licensed health professionals who may allegedly be risking public health, safety or welfare.

LARA values and relies on complaints from patients and residents to spur investigations into licensed health professionals who are potentially violating the Public Health Code. Each and every complaint received by the department is reviewed and analyzed by LARA staff members.
