    Nature of Complaint

    The physician was hired in September 2010, and shortly after his patients and staff began complaining about the physican’s behavior.On October 1, 2010 the physician voluntarily submitted his blood and urine for testing. The results of both the urine and blood tests were positive for alprazolam, an anxiolytic prescribed to the physician. A confirmatory quantitative blood test resulted in a level of 472.5 ng/ml, which far exceeds the reference range of 5-25 ng/ml and well into the toxic range of >60 ng/ml. The side effects of alprazolam include slurred speech, short term memory loss, disorientation and confusion. These side effects become more likely the higher the dosage taken. The physician has not practiced medicine in Wisconsin since October 11, 2010 and does not presently intend to practice in Wisconsin and the physician tenders the surrender of his license to practice in Wisconsin.
