State licensing regulators have ordered an immediate suspension of the medical license of Dr. David E. Hewett for refusing to submit to mental and physical health exams.

The order issued by the state Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing said state and Utah County health officials found Hewett's office unsanitary and Hewett "not in touch with reality, especially in view of the stark reality of his indigent condition and homeless lifestyle."A report in June said Hewett has unsuccessfully tried to establish a practice for eight years in Utah County and is "unable to manage his personal life, much less the management of the health care of his patients," the order said.
