You don’t expect to get sicker or develop more medical conditions when you go to the doctor, especially for routine procedures such as having your blood drawn. This was the case of a number of patients who got infected with serious medical conditions, such as Hepatitis C, after receiving an infusion or having their blood drawn at Dr. Timothey Morley’s practice.
On September 11th, the New York State Department of Health and Westchester County Health Department ordered Dr. Morley, a doctor of osteopathic medicine, to stop practicing. He was furthered ordered to close his offices pending a formal hearing. A hearing is scheduled before the State Board for Professional Medical Conduct on September 19th.
Dr. Morley’s license was suspended after four of his patients were infected with the same strain of Hepatitis C. The New York Department of Health and Westchester County Health Department are asking all patients who received an infusion or had blood drawn at any of Dr. Morley’s practices to get tested for hepatitis B or C or HIV. Dr. Morley was practicing at Tomorrow Medicine in Mount Kisco and White Plains. He was also a physician at Advance Medicine of Mount Kisco.
Testing is available at no cost for patients through the county health department. Appointments can be made by calling 919-995-7499.
