      Nature of Complaint:

      The physician has been the subject of disciplinary action in another state.

      The Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners on 08-19-2008 summarily suspended the physician's license to practice medicine in the State of Louisiana. The Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners on 10-19-2009 issued an Opinion and Order whereby the physician's license shall remain suspended until the physician has affiliated himself with and participated in an approved substance abuse treatment program for a period of at least six months and was ordered to surrender his DEA registration. The board found that the physician has been addicted to alcohol, cocaine and opiates for a number of years and self-prescribed a number of medications. 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.

      Action Taken:

      The Medical Board of California has accepted the Surrender of the physician's license to practice medicine and surgery in the State of California.
