DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa regulators have reinstated the medical license of a Council Bluffs anesthesiologist and pain expert who'd lost it for a year.

Dr. Michael Prescher had been accused in December 2011 of medical incompetence and of sexual misconduct with patients.

The Iowa Board of Medicine dismissed the sexual misconduct allegation as unproved. But the board fined him $10,000 and suspended his license for violations of treatment standards.

Last month Prescher, who lives in Omaha, Neb., petitioned for his license to be returned. A news release from the board on Tuesday said Prescher showed that he'd paid the fine and had completed a required program on professional boundaries and a course on medical record keeping.

Prescher's license was reinstated on Friday, but he remains on five years of board probation.
