Psychiatrist's license suspension upheld

The board that oversees physicians in the state voted Wednesday after a lengthy hearing to continue suspending the license of a Towson psychiatrist who is accused of improper conduct with boys in his care. The Maryland Board of Physicians notified Miguel Frontera on Thursday of the continued suspension, which has been in place since early this month. The board began investigating the doctor in April after Baltimore County police passed along reports from two boys who said Frontera touched their genitals during physical exams. No criminal charges were filed. Frontera has 10 days to request a review by an administrative law judge on the suspension and cannot see patients in the meantime.
