The board also found that the physician has a history of non-compliance with treating or supervising entities, dismissal from treatment centers, and difficulties conforming to monitoring and treatment requirements. The board also found that the physician performed an extensive cosmetic surgical procedure in his office when the physician did not have staff privileges at any hospital and prescribed inappropriately for himself, his family and patients.
