The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the physical therapist license of Bamidele Gabriel Gbogi, P.T., based on his felony conviction in the United States District Court, Western District of Michigan. Gbogi failed to report his conviction to MDCH as required by the Public Health Code.

On November 1, 2004, Gbogi was convicted of Conspiracy to Commit Health Care Fraud, a felon. As a result, Gbogi was placed on probation, with special conditions, for a period of four years and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $47,303.03.

On May 4, 2005, MDCH issued an order immediately suspending Gbogi’s license pursuant to the Public Health Code, which provides for the mandatory summary suspension of a health professional’s license upon the conviction of a felony. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Gbogi’s physical therapy license.
