Michael the dentist is one of the most popular and beloved characters in the office.
His office is a favorite spot for guests to meet with the boss, as well as for guests and colleagues to socialize and have lunch.
His personal office, with its private balcony, is also a favorite location for socializing.
But for all his good looks and charm, Michael has a dark side.
He has been accused of stealing patients’ prescriptions, and for stealing from his own patients.
His office, though, has a very different story to tell.
The Washington, D.C., office of the dentists’ guilds, which represents about 500,000 office workers, released a report Wednesday that shows that he has had more than 2,000 cases of alleged patient-doctor misconduct.
The allegations include theft, misusing patients’ money and even assaulting his own employees.
“This is a very serious problem, but it’s not surprising,” said Chris Lasky, executive director of the office’s public policy committee.
“It’s not unusual for office workers to have a little fun with each other, but this is something that needs to be dealt with.”
The allegations against Michael stem from a 2007 incident, when a woman called in to the office complaining that she had been sick for four days and needed dental care.
She was able to obtain a private room in the dental office, which was furnished with her own bed.
The woman also told investigators that the office doctor, who was also an employee, “loved to tease” her and “make fun of her” when she went into pain.
Michael told The Post that he took the woman’s prescription, but that it was for an oral medication.
He denied ever taking her prescription, saying that he “didn’t have any business” taking it, and said that he was a dentist who “just needed a little time” to get to know his patients.
But the report alleges that the patient complained to her supervisor, who then sent an email to Michael asking for his resignation.
“The complaint from the patient and her supervisor were both written to the same person, Dr. Michael McWilliams,” the report said.
“Dr. McWilliams did not provide the complaint to the department or the union.”
The union’s president, Jim Coughlin, said the union is “very concerned” about the report and is now calling on the Office of Management and Budget to review the case.
The union said that Dr. McWilliam has apologized for the incident and that he and his colleagues have been disciplined for the behavior, but the report does not detail the specific disciplinary actions.
The union said it has hired an independent law firm to conduct an internal investigation.
McWilliams did return a request for comment.
“I think that if you had a conversation with someone and they were telling you that they had a bad day, you wouldn’t tell them to do a favor for you,” McWilliams said.
“Dr. Michael is not a criminal,” said Laskie, who added that he had worked with Michael in the past, and that “he does have a very good reputation in the profession.”
In recent months, the Washington, District of Columbia, Office of the Inspector General has reported on a number of cases of office misconduct involving Dr. Moustafa El-Hage, a licensed dentist who was fired from his position in 2013 after the union filed a grievance alleging that he violated the rules.
The IG’s report, however, does not indicate whether the allegations of patient misconduct are directly related to the incident at Michael’s office.
“No matter how we look at it, these are just complaints that have been brought forward by our members,” Laskies said.
Michael has been outspoken about his support for a bill that would give the office of a licensed dentist, or dentist, a third vote in the contract of a dental practice.
The proposal was introduced by Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., and Rep. Richard Neal, D
