1 Board Action

  • Non-Disciplinary Action  (9/18/2009)
  • Action Taken: Education
  • Summary: Dr. James Shelton Wells, Jr.; License # 22990

    Nature of Complaint:

    The physician treated a patient for a variety of conditions over a long period of time. The physician continued to treat the patient for three years after her move out of state without the patient being seen by a psychiatrist, although the physician encouraged her to do so. The physician should have insisted upon the patient's transition to a physician in her locality within six months and ceased prescribing for her by the end of that time.

    Action Taken-Non-Disciplinary Consent Order

    1. The physician agrees that when patients move and cannot continue to see him in face-to-face sessions, he will promptly transition such patients to other caregivers.
    2. The physician within six months shall attend a continuing medical education course on prescribing medications and shall submit proof of completion within thirty days of completing the CME course.
    3. If the physician decides to attend some other course instead of the course for which the physician is already registered, the physician shall request approval by the Board's Medical Director prior to attending the CME course.
