The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the license to practice medicine of Rodolfo Finkelstein, 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 March 21, 2005, Finkelstein was bound over for five counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct in the Fourth Degree and two counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct in the First Degree in the 48th District Court of Oakland County, Michigan.

On April 12, 2005, MDCH issued an order immediately suspending Finkelstein’s license pursuant to the Public Health Code. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Finkelstein’s license to practice medicine.
