It was alleged that the physician failed to appropriately evaluate and treat the patient by non-therapeutically prescribing two drugs, failing to implement a “weaning” process for one medication, despite the patients request to do so, and failing to appropriately address the patient’s issues related to her depression and mood swings. Also, it was alleged that the physician failed to document: symptoms and treatment plan for depression when there was a diagnosis of same in the medical records; dosages of the medications prescribed; justification for diagnostic tests ordered by the physician; and the reasons for continuing to treat and prescribe to the patient, after she had a positive drug screen.
