Eye surgeon's medical license suspended

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash;-- You may remember a story we ran a few months ago about Dr. Michael Mockovak.

Mockovak was the co-owner of Clearly Lasik and in November he was criminally charged with trying to kill his Seattle business partner, Dr. Joseph King.

Now the state Department of Health has ordered Mockovack to stop practicing medicine in Washington.      

He has already surrendered his license to practice in Oregon, based on his charges here. He will have the chance to appeal the decision. He has posted one million dollar bond and is awaiting a criminal trial.
