Judge considers restoring Towson cardiologist's medical license

Justice SystemSt. Joseph Medical CenterMark G. Midei

Attorneys for Dr. Mark Midei argued before a Baltimore Circuit Court judge Monday that the embattled cardiologist should get his medical license back, claiming the Board of Physicians stripped it from him last year after erroneously finding that Midei falsified patient records to justify the placement of unnecessary coronary stents.

The judge gave no timeline for her decision. Midei, who is being sued by more than 200 former patients of St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, said after the hearing that he was "optimistic."

The Ohio medical board has also moved to revoke his medical license there, his home state, based on the Maryland actions, sending him a letter in December offering him an opportunity for a hearing.
