Posted on Tuesday, October 1st, 2013    

A doctor’s license was temporarily suspended in Ford City after he was discovered ordering large amounts of prescription pain medication for his own consumption, according to a report published on September 23.

According to reports doctor Terence E. Moore’s office at 710 Fourth Ave. was ordered to be closed on Thursday, September 19 by the screening committee of the state medical board after he came under investigation. Moore was reportedly ordering large amounts of prescription drugs, like morphine sulfate, Ultram, Xanax, hydrocodone, and Oxycontin, for 18 months for his own use. Moore was also allegedly taking the drugs in front of students.

Dr. Moore has not been arrested and his legal counsel said probable cause was cited for the suspension of the license.
