Hillsdale Physician Has License Summarily SuspendedContact: James McCurtis Jr. (517) 241-2112Agency: Community Health
April 28, 2010
The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) has immediately suspended the license to practice medicine of Ross David Miller, M.D., based on his felony conviction in the First Judicial Circuit Court, Hillsdale County, Michigan. The DCH Bureau of Health Professions orders a summary suspension when it believes that the public's health, safety, and welfare warrant emergency action. Miller failed to report his conviction to MDCH as required by the Public Health Code.
On June 8, 2009, Miller, 50, was convicted of Attempted Criminal Sexual Conduct-Second Degree (Person under Thirteen), a felony. As a result, Miller was sentenced to jail for one year and ordered to pay fines and costs totaling $1,128.
On April 20, 2010, MDCH issued an order summarily suspending Miller's medical license pursuant to the Public Health Code which provides for the summary suspension of a health professional's license when the department finds that the public health, safety or welfare requires emergency action.
