Medical Board ActionThe physician's license is limited precluding the prescribing of controlled substances until the results of a clinical competency assessment has been reviewed by the Office of Professional Medical Conduct and it is determined that the corrective action and/or retraining has been successfully completed. Any patients previously prescribed controlled substances must be referred to other healthcare providers. The physician will be placed on probation during the clinical competency assessment. After completing the assessment the physician may only prescribe controlled substances if he maintains a prescribing log acceptable to the Office of Professional Medical Conduct . The physician will be placed on probation for an additional three years once the assessment has been completed.
