++ExcerptIn other action the board:
* Denied a request by former psychiatrist Michael Solloway that his license, revoked in January 1983 after a number of appeals, be reinstated. It was revoked in a widely publicized case in which Solloway admitted having a sexual relationship with a severely disturbed 19-year-old-patient.
At Saturday’s hearing, Dr. George Metcalf, of the South Florida Psychiatric Society, and two other psychiatrists testified in Solloway’s behalf.
But board members disagreed.
Dr. Robert Katims, a Miami endocrinologist, said, “I don’t think it is any secret that this case has aroused the most interest of any case since I’ve served on this board. I still don’t think that this is the appropriate time for this physician to return to practice.”
Solloway declined to comment.
