SPRINGFIELD — A psychiatrist in Normal has given up his medical license after facing unspecified claims by a state medical board.

Dr. Gabriel Telot agreed to have his physician and surgeon license permanently relinquished, according to a report issued Wednesday by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation.

The report doesn’t specify any of the allegations made against Telot, but says that the Illinois Medical Disciplinary Board may find him in violation of state law if the matter were to proceed to a hearing.

In addition to giving up his license, Telot also has surrendered his registration with the Drug Enforcement Agency, which allowed him to prescribe drugs to patients.

According to the report, Telot has neither admitted nor denied guilt in the claims made against him.

Until recently, Telot operated a medical practice with Dr. Douglas Bey. No one at the office could be reached for comment on Wednesday, but an automated voice message said Dr. Telot had retired, and “this office no longer accepts messages for him.”
