Suspended: Dr Timothy Morley has been suspending pending a hearing after four of his patients were exposed to blood diseases
A New York City doctor's medical license has been suspended after he allegedly infected four patients with hepatitis C.
Dr Timothy Morley, an osteopathic doctor in Westchester County by the Bronx, has been ordered to close his practice, where he claims to be a specialist in weight loss and menopause, as well as 'disease treatment and prevention'.
All of his patients have now been urged to get tested for all blood diseases, including HIV.
During the course of officials' investigation, they found 'a series of inappropriate infection control practices' at Morley's offices.
Officials say they also had concerns about the treatment and administration of medicine at his offices in Mount Kisco and White Plains.
'I strongly encourage any of Dr. Timothy Morley's patients who have received an intravenous infusion or a blood draw to get tested for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV,' Health Commissioner Dr Sherlita Amler said.
According to health officials, Dr Morley is also accused of failing to produce relevant records as part of a state and local investigation.
