The Chancellor’s youngest brother Adam Osborne, 38, is accused of a two-year affair with the mum of two.
He could be struck off by the General Medical Council if the claims are upheld.
A GMC spokesman said the interim suspension was not an indication of guilt.
In 2010, Dr Osborne was suspended for prescribing drugs to a prostitute who claimed to be his lover.
Dr Osborne describes himself as having a special interest in adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, personality disorders, depression and anxiety on his LinkedIn profile.

Dr Osborne, the Chancellor’s youngest brother, has had a controversial career since finishing his medical course at Manchester University in 2003.
He was suspended in 2010 after his “relationship” with a prostitute “clouded his judgement” and led him to prescribe the woman powerful anti-psychotic drugs, dishonestly use a false name and fail to inform her GP.
Dr Osborne was also disciplined for prescribing contraceptive pills to his then girlfriend, Rahala Noor, a strict Muslim who would become his wife, and an anti-smoking drug to an unnamed family member.
Adam Osborne married Bangladeshi-born Noor in an elaborate Muslim ceremony in 2009 after he had converted to Islam and changed his first name to Mohammed.
The pair met as undergraduates at St Andrews University, Fife, before going on to study medicine together at Manchester University.
Once qualified, he became a junior doctor at the city’s Wythenshawe Hospital.
He was forced to resign following the allegations that he was handing out falsified prescriptions.
Dr Osborne declined to comment.
