Cardiologist's license revoked over stent accusations

The Maryland Board of Physicians last week revoked the medical license of Dr. Mark Midei, saying the Towson cardiologist falsified patient records to justify unnecessary cardiac stent procedures.

"Dr. Midei's violations were repeated and serious," board members wrote in an 11-page order. "They unnecessarily exposed his patients to the risk of harm. They increased the cost of the patients' medical care."

The findings cap two years of inquiry into Midei's work atSt. Joseph Medical Center.
