MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -- The doctor who admitted to having inappropriate contact with patients while they were under sedation has had his medical license suspended, according to a news release from the Wisconsin Department of Regulation & Licensing.

The Medical Examining Board (MEB) says there is probable cause that Kevin A. Lang's "alleged conduct constitutes a danger to the public health, safety or welfare which requires emergency suspension of his license to practice medicine."

Lang resigned earlier this year after he admitted touching at least two patients while they were under sedation.

According to the same release, "Lang disclosed that he had committed 11 acts of sexual misconduct against patients between 2003 and 2007 as they went in and out of consciousness following their procedures."
