Posted on Monday, February 14th, 2011
A 72 year-old doctor in Niagara Falls lost his medical license after being arrested on charges of felony drug distribution. Some of the doctor’s former and current employees have also been arrested for allegedly dispensing drugs illegally.
The doctor is being accused of prescribing painkillers in large doses to patients that were not shown to actually need the drugs. He had already had previous trouble with the Health Department when they filed charges against him that claimed he had been incompetent in his treatment with many of his patients. Now, the doctor is facing prison time.
He has plead not guilty.
