The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the medical license of Albert Norman Bayer, 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.

Bayer's license was suspended based on his sexual relationship with a patient that was in his care for psychiatric treatment.

On December 28, 2006, MDCH issued an order immediately suspending Bayer's medical license. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Bayer's license.
