            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Celene Gogerty, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Greer, P.J., and Ahlers and Buller, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, P.J.  (20 pages)

            Dr. John Doe appeals the district court’s denial of his petition for judicial review of the Iowa Board of Medicine’s order for a clinical competency evaluation and statement of charges for professional incompetency.  OPINION HOLDS: Dr. Doe submitted to the evaluation without objection, and the challenges to the order for the clinical competency evaluation now come more than fourteen days after Dr. Doe received the order; therefore, the challenge now is moot and untimely.  The charge of professional incompetency was supported by substantial evidence at the contested case hearing.  We affirm the district court’s denial.
