Miralles is suspended with pay.

Why with pay? He knew of the actions taken against him, and hid them from his boss. It's obvious why he didn't tell them and now he's suspended WITH PAY?
Dump him.

I agree, I'm sure he violated his contract with the county so why is he not being terminated immediately.I am a Wayne County taxpayer and I demand immediate termination,if not then I demand that his immediate Supervisor be terminated also!!!

Until you know all the facts surrounding him being charged,donot judge him.Obviously the charges made against him were not enough for the state of New York to revoke or suspend his license. Iam sure that they investigated throughly. Were these allegations against him found during a state survey or from patient complaints? Find out ALL the facts first......

You tell people to know the facts, Well know the facts your self first. Civil service law requires the he be suspended with pay first while an investigation is done! The supervisor is not responsible for his actions. He is a doctor that took an oath...

$179,000? I'm sure that's a lot of money in Wayne county for a public servant, but in Monroe County that's a janitor.

If your news team had truly researched this story they would know that Dr. Miralles is a good man and maintained an overwhelming workload. He also recently overcame a serious illness. I have lost my faith in the media.

I and my daughter used to see this dr. and he really just passes out meds. He doesn't ask many questions and I really don't think he listens or understands English

After reading the comments, I must say, yes Dr. Miralles is over loaded with patients, but is that a reason for the patients to suffer? If you had only one surgeon at a hospital would you want him to operate on everyone without sleep? He has an obligation. If he is overwhelmed then he should speak up. Oh thats right I forgot he barely listens and understands english from his patients so how could he possibly speak up.

So this doctor gets a paid vacation-to boot. Sounds like the GPD. Suspend but pay.

OK. I'm at work and I do something wrong. So they suspend me with pay. WITH PAY??? Well, Hell, now I can sit at home, do nothing and get paid for it. Why should I do something right when I'm going to get paid anyway??!!! This is stupid.

Dr. Miralles is a kind, highly skilled man with a great deal of integrity. This is really about not getting all the paperwork done. The paperwork demands are outrageous in this field, and if he did anything wrong, it was to try to see seriously ill patients when they needed help. He came in early, always worked through his lunch hour, always returned patient calls in a timely manner, and never, ever wasted time time chatting or gossiping around the water cooer. Ask any MD about how the bureaucracy makes their jobs impossible...many are leaving the field as a result. Dr. Miralles has an excellent understanding of the English language, and speaks and understands it perfectly. By the way, To yesthemoma.. "I and my daughter" is grammatically incorrect... it should be "my daughter and I".

The facts are he was negligent and incompetent with seven of his patients and did not notify his supervisor, now you are fired!!!

$86.72 per hour-sweet! Why wouldn't the disciplining orginization inform his employer? Aren't they in contact to gather information? That part smells fishy to me. Also the big poster of his head hanging outside the building is creepy.

The comments some of you people make just shows your ignorance and lack of understanding of the situation and it makes me sick. Thank you Co-Worker I and II for the comments because you know him personally and how overworked he is and how hard he really tries. But for the people who do not know anything about what is really going on, keep your ridiculous comments to yourself. And to "yesthemoma", you see him for a reason and by the sounds of it, you and your daughter are complete trash. He hates giving out drugs and tries to avoid it at all costs so don't try and pull that. You probably went to him begging for them just like most patients do.

What is wrong with our health care providers? First, we have a dude in Canandaigua that has been charged with medical malpractice not once but twice, and now we have some high paid psychiatrist failing to provide safe and competent care. The truth is that no one can trust their doctor for crap!
