The state has temporarily suspended the medical license of a Manheim Township psychiatrist charged last month with writing prescriptions without properly evaluating patients and insurance fraud.

The Pennsylvania Department of State said the accusations against Bassam M.A. El-Borno, if true, represent an “immediate and clear danger to public health and safety” in the order, dated Tuesday, June 30.

El-Borno, 64, of the 1000 block of Bluestone Drive, had a practice at 160 North Pointe Blvd. A message left for his attorney Wednesday was not immediately returned.
