State issues counselor license to former psychiatrist Marc Pellicciaro

September 22, 2013

On May 22, 2013, the Washington State Department of Health (DoH) granted a credential to Marc D. Pellicciaro to practice as an agency affiliated counselor.

Terms of licensure include Pellicciaro obtaining a substance abuse evaluation through the state Physicians Health Program and other terms.

Pellicciaro is a psychiatrist who was formerly licensed to practice medicine in both Alaska and Washington. In late January 2009, he learned that he was under investigation by the Alaska Medical Board for drug abuse, as well as for practicing on a lapsed license and voluntarily surrendered his license to practice in Alaska. 

On July 23, 2009, the DoH served Pellicciaro with a Statement of Charges and other documents relative to the Alaska investigation. Pellicciaro never responded to the DoH’s communications. On September 3, 2009, (DoH) suspended Pellicciaro for unprofessional conduct.
