Another claim, alleged Dr. Wullbrandt's staff had to intervene during procedures because they noticed how impaired he was.

Dr. Wullbrandt was suspended for one year, with his suspension ending Aug. 3. He will be eligible to practice the following day. Upon the expiration of his suspension, Dr. Wullbrandt must disclose the details of the prior suspension when seeking employment.
