Dr. James Alan Gideon, M.D, Bluffton rheumatology and internal medicine physician, whose office is at 132 Garau St., has been suspended from medical practice and surgery after he admitted to sexual misconduct with patients.

The State Medical Board of Ohio has banned him from medical and surgery practice until it holds a hearing on his case. No hearing date has been set.

The suspension follows a June 14 board meeting where members determined that Dr. Gideon had violated a section of the Ohio Administrative Code.
