Doctor’s license suspended after facing several charges
Posted on Friday, October 2nd, 2015
A doctor’s license has been “indefinitely suspended” in Helena, Montana, after facing hundreds of felony charges including two negligent homicides, an article from the Missoulian reported on September 30.
Reports said the license of Florence Doctor Chris Christensen, 67, has been suspended by the state’s Board of Medical Examiners on September 29. During an emergency meeting the board discovered that Christensen was prescribing “non-narcotic” drugs to his patients even without seeing them personally or have another physician monitor his work. At least 400 counts of various felony charges in August were filed against Christensen after he was given a “probationary license” in May. Christensen entered a no guilty plea and was later discharged from custody after posting a bond worth $200,000.
