Physician at Pain Clinic Accused of Improperly Prescribing Pain Killers

One mother had to watch her 23-year-old son snorting crushed pain pills after doctors gave her son what could have been lethal amounts of prescription pain killers. The state’s department of health led to investigations that found that two doctors had committed medical malpractice by improperly prescribing pain killers and muscle relaxers to her son. He gave the young man a prescription calling for 270 pills of Roxycodone for pain and Xanax to treat anxiety. He also did not test his patient to confirm claims that the patient was suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. He is also accused of improperly filing prescriptions in the clinic. A medical malpractice offer of suspension of the doctor’s medical license until evaluation, 100 hours of community service and a $10,000 fine has been given to a physician.
