(LANSING) – A Coldwater physician has had his license suspended after being convicted of a felony charge.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs says they have immediately suspended the license to practice medicine of Dr. Joon H. Chong, after the 69 year old was convicted in the United States District Court, Southern District of Ohio.

Chong was sentenced on June 12 to 18 months in prison for felony conviction of conspiracy to acquire or possess controlled substances by misrepresentation, fraud, forgery, deception or subterfuge. Chong was one of six physicians along with a southern Ohio man accused of pocketing nearly seven million dollars while operating a cash-only business of prescribing drugs to addicts at three pain clinics.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, the federal dispatch also accuses Chong and the clinic's owner and operator Tracy Bias, of distributing pain pills that caused the death of two Kentucky men.

All of the doctors have active Ohio licenses except for one who surrendered his license in 2013 after the Drug Enforcement Administration revoked his authority to prescribe drugs.

LARA executed an order summarily suspending Chong's license pursuant to the Public Health Code, which provides for the mandatory summary suspension of a health professional's license upon the conviction of a felony or other factors.
