The license of a physician in Foley was temporarily suspended by the State of Alabama Medical Licensure Commission in connection with an arrest in Florida, according to a news report published on January 24.
The commission ordered Dr. Thomas Syverson to surrender his license due to being arrested in Florida last June 2012 for charges of DUI, illegal possession of controlled drugs and drug paraphernalia, and other charges. Though records of the doctor’s arrest were unavailable, a report by the commission found that the doctor was positive in two separate testing done to him.
Dr. Syverson is scheduled for a court hearing in Montgomery in April.
