February 4, 2005

The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the medical license of Khalil Saada Baroud, M.D. The MDCH Bureau of Health Professions orders a summary suspension when it believes that the public’s health, safety, and welfare warrant emergency action.

 On October 20, 2004, Baroud’s license to practice medicine in the state of Wisconsin was revoked. The Wisconsin action was based, in part, on Baroud making sexual advances towards a patient.

On January 18, 2005, MDCH issued an order immediately suspending Baroud’s medical license. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Baroud’s license.
