Dr. Timothy Morley will be on probation for three years and his several restrictions were put on his medical license by the state medical officials. Charges against Morleyinclude failure to follow infection control guidelines at his practice, Tomorrow Medicine, which had locations on Moore Avenue in Mount Kisco and 1133 Westchester Ave. in White Plains.

Last month, the New York State Department of Health issued an alert to Morley’s patients that may have received an intravenous infusion, injection or a blood draw at Tomorrow Medicine, cautioning them to get tested for the three deadly diseases.

According to officials, four patients initially tested positive for the exact strain of Hepatitis C in the tri-state area and the only connection between all of the cases is Morley’s offices.

In addition to probation, Morley is banned from performing intravenous or injections for 36 months. He must also seek more training related to infection control before his license will be fully restored at the conclusion of the probationary period.

Morley allegedly has a long list of pending financial and legal issues in multiple states, including nearly a dozen in Ohio, where he attended college at Ohio University. Morley also reportedly was hit with a federal tax lien that was issued in March for nearly $20,000.

The doctor said that his practice focuses on healthy aging and anti-aging practices using hormone education and balancing, focusing on preventative medicine, not traditional medicine.

“Traditional medicine essentially lets people get sick, and when they then get sick, traditional medicine treats their illness,” he said in a YouTube video promoting himself. “It makes more sense to me to stop the disease process from the beginning, catch it early and prevent it from occurring before it gets you sick.”

The doctor went on to say that an imbalance of hormones may lead to misdiagnoses of certain symptoms.

“I treat all kinds of diseases, many are hormone related. You’d be surprised at how many diseases there are that start with an imbalance of hormones,” he said. “Balancing hormones not only has short term benefits of making you feel better and alleviating your symptoms, but there are also long-term benefits as well.

“Oftentimes, I have patients that want to ‘turn back the clock,’ so to speak,” he added. “But you can’t turn back the clock, but you can postpone what Mother Nature has in store for you with hormone balancing. You can feel younger, more alive, and more energetic.”
