Doctor Strongly Criticized In His Methods of Distributing Medication

A family doctor who wrote prescriptions that could be linked to three deaths is still seeing patients, despite being under investigation by state authorities. His medical license has not been suspended, nor has his practice been restricted, even though several complaints against him have led to an investigation by the state medical examiners board.
