Virginia doctor’s license suspended

A doctor in Newport News recently had his license suspended by the Virginia Board of Medicine recently due to an alleged series of prescription violations, the Daily Press reported on March 11.

In the 43-page prescription abuse complaint against Doctor Roger Philips, 69, the board stated that it believes the public is at risk under his care. Reports show that Philips allegedly made medical lapses and gave high dosages of powerful pain relievers to some of his patients. Some pharmacists who questioned the prescriptions provided by Philips complained about his rude behavior as well.

Philips, who has been practicing medicine for more than three decades, is scheduled to appear in a hearing in Richmond next month.
