California medical board revokes psychiatrist Michael D. Schultz's license

May 21, 2013

On April 19, 2013, the Medical Board of California revoked the license of psychiatrist Michael D. Schultz.

In February 2013, the Board issued an Accusation against Schultz, which reported that Schultz's driver's license was suspended April 13, 2005 due to disability. However, he was arrested March 11, 2010 for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs/alcohol. Test results showed the presence of opiates.

Schultz failed to appear at a November 30, 2010 hearing. A warrant was issued for his arrest. Schultz admitted to Board investigators that he was unfit to practice medicine and wanted to surrender his license but never actually did, though he provided a release of medical records to the Board in September 2012.

It was the opinion of the Board’s consultant, who reviewed the records and interview notes, that Schultz was unsafe to practice medicine.

In February 2013, the Board issued a copy of their accusation to Schultz, but it was returned as unclaimed.
