Swedish MD suspended over Lyme disease care; patients bereft (Huffington Post)

A quote:
The top doctor in Sweden for treatment of advanced Lyme disease has been suspended from practicing medicine, leaving hundreds of patients without care in a country with a large and growing problem of tick-borne disease.

The physician, Kenneth Sandström, said the action was taken because he treated patients with longer courses of antibiotics than recommended by prevailing treatment guidelines.

Does it mean, that treating with a longer course is worth to lose the GP license?
For some reason, it may serve as the guarantee of a successful treatment. Am I right?
