The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the medical license of Robert A. Wolf, M.D., based on his misdemeanor conviction in the 52-4th Judicial District Court of Oakland County, Michigan. Wolf failed to report his conviction to MDCH as required by the Public Health Code.

On February 3, 2005, Wolf was convicted of Drove/Operated While Impaired, a misdemeanor. The conviction stemmed from an arrest on August 17, 2004, involving Wolf being stopped while operating an automobile in an erratic manner.

During the traffic stop, police discovered various prescription bottles containing assorted pills and narcotics in the vehicle. Wolf’s blood specimen on the date of the traffic stop tested positive for the following controlled substances: diazepam, meprobamate and zolpidem. As a result of said conviction, Wolf was ordered to abstain from consumption of any mood-altering substances, submit to random drug tests and pay a total of $2,440 in fines, fees and costs.

On February 26, 2005, Wolf was arrested and charged with Operating While Impaired – Narcotics; adjudication is pending in the matter.

On June 1, 2005, MDCH issued an order summarily suspending Wolf’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 misdemeanor involving the illegal delivery, possession or use of a controlled substance. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Wolf’s medical license.
