MUIR, Mich. (WOOD) - A spokesperson with a Lansing hospital says the hospital is helping to get patients' medical records from a doctor's office that suddenly closed in Ionia County.
24 Hour News 8 came across court records, including debts and property liens, which likely contributed to the closing of Dr. Colleen Landino's practice in Muir.
But with the doors locked, concerned patients and caregivers didn't know where to turn to get their medical records.
On Friday, 24 Hour News 8 called the number on the office door to try to find some answers. Initially, no one seemed to know where to get those records or what patients should do.
But late Friday afternoon, a spokesperson with Sparrow Hospital in Lansing said the hospital was working to secure the records.
In a statement, Sparrow Hospital said, "Dr. Colleen Landino does not provide care at Sparrow Ionia Hospital and Sparrow has no involvement in her practice. At this time, Sparrow does not have custody of Dr. Landino's records and we do not know how long it might take to receive these records."
Court documents did show that early in her career, Landino worked for Sparrow Hospital.
Investigators said problems with Landino's practice are separate from the criminal case against Marco Olivas, who is described as Landino's office manager and boyfriend.
Olivas was arrested at Landino's home in Muir on Thursday on sexual assault charges. He was out on bond after he was charged in a similar case in May.
Ionia County sheriff's deputies said the victims in Olivas' cases were not patients at Landino's practice.
When deputies tried to arrest him, Landino's children were at the home. They left, but when Olivas wouldn't come out, deputies had to take further measures to get him to give himself up.
"We did shoot four canisters of gas into the attic of the residence and a short time later, the suspect gave up," said Ionia County Undersheriff Charlie Noll.
Noll called Olivas a predator and said there could be more victims.
"No one has come forward," he said. "We have no other information indicating there would be other victims. But I'm not 100 percent sure that there isn't."
