The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has summarily suspended the medical license of Osvaldo Orengo, 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.

Orengo's license was summarily suspended based on his alleged sexual misconduct with multiple female patients.

On January 30, 2007, MDCH issued an order immediately suspending Orengo's medical license. An administrative hearing will be scheduled to address the status of Orengo's license.
