License of U.P. Doctor Revoked


Jonathan Robertson Jonathan Robertson The Michigan Board of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery revoked the medical license of Jonathan Gale Robertson and fined the licensee $100,000 at its December 6 meeting for having sexual contact with patients. Robertson previously had practices located in Marquette and Traverse City.

The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) initially served an order summarily suspending the medical license of Robertson for allegations of eight counts of third degree criminal sexual conduct back in August.

Robertson failed to respond to LARA’s initial order, which the department treated as an admission of the allegations in the administrative complaint.

The specific allegations in the administrative complaint include:

— Unprofessional conduct with a patient that is sexual or can reasonably be interpreted as sexual.

— Offering to provide practice-related services, such as drugs, in exchange for sexual favors.

— Negligence, incompetence and lack of good moral character.

The ultimate determination on Robertson’s license was made by the Disciplinary

Subcommittee (DSC) of the Board of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery.

The revocation of Robertson’s license was effective as of December 18, 2018.

The licensee may appeal the decision of the DSC with the Michigan Court of Appeals.
