CBME vacates suspension of Dr. Joel Miller

Joel Miller

The Colorado Board of Medical Examiners has vacated its suspension of a local doctor’s license.

Dr. Joel Miller, operator of High Country Medical at 535 Yampa Ave. in Craig, met with the CBME Thursday to appeal the suspension of his license to practice as a physician in the state of Colorado.

His license was suspended last month when he declined to comply with a Colorado Physician Health Program recommendation that Miller seek an out of state medical assessment to evaluate a potential alcohol abuse problem.

According to the CBME order, the suspension was vacated when the “respondent, through counsel, and CPHP, provided adequate confirmation to the Board of Respondent’s compliance with CPHP’s recommendations.”

The order went into effect Aug. 31, according to the CBME order.

Attempts to reach Dr. Miller have been unsuccessful thus far.
