State suspends Westchester doctor’s license, warns of potential disease exposure

ALBANY – The state Health Department has suspended Dr. Timothy Morley’s license to practice medicine and is advising any patient who has received an intravenous infusion, injection or a blood draw from his practice, “Tomorrow Medicine,” to be tested for hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus and human immunodeficiency virus infections.

Morley’s practice is at 37 Moore Avenue in Mount Kisco and at 1133 Westchester Avenue in White Plains. Patients should also be tested if they received any of those services at a previous medical practice known as “Advanced Medicine of Mount Kisco.”

The investigation into Morley’s practice was initiated by the state and Westchester County departments of health after four people tested positive for hepatitis C virus. Molecular testing performed at the state’s public health laboratory, Wadsworth Center, determined the strains of hepatitis C virus in all four patients were identical, suggesting transmission likely occurred at the practice, state officials said.

Morley was ordered to stop practicing medicine immediately, pending a formal hearing, due to charges of violating state public health and education law and failing to produce relevant records as part of a state and local investigation.

Persons who have received any of those treatments at Morley’s offices should contact their health care provider to get tested. Testing is also available at no cost for patients through the Westchester County Department of Health at 914-995-7499 Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. State Health Department representatives are also available to answer questions Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 888-364-4902.
