The North Carolina Medical Board announced that a doctor had their license  pulled on Monday following accusations of prescribing patients dangerous amounts of narcotics for over six years.

The eleven page report shows that three of the doctors patients had died, all receiving extremely high doses of narcotics prescribed by this doctor.

“The board takes matter like this very seriously and the action, the summary suspension is a very serious action.  It’s basically an emergency action.  It takes the licensee out of practice immediately,” said Dena Konkel with the North Carolina Medical Board.

The concern with the doctor started in 2006, according to a report out by the NC Medical Board when they ordered him to take a prescribing course after allegations he prescribed medications to people buying and selling drugs along with people who have died from overdosing.

Again in 2008, another investigation against the doctor ensued, finding that the doctor had still not gotten things in order at his practice. At this time the board sat down with the doctor, reviewing options for his continued negligent behavior.

It was not until this year along with the reports of three deaths of that doctors patients that the license was actually pulled by the medical board.
