    • Summary: Dr. Leonard Dean Hudson; License # MD00010900

      Nature of Complaint:

      The respondent exchanged money and prescription drugs for sex with a woman who suffered from severe addiction to prescription medication. The allegations say Hudson never medically examined the woman, never provided her with a treatment plan, and failed to keep appropriate medical records for her. He allegedly met the woman multiple times over several months through an online escort service where she advertised sex for money. The woman also requested payment in the form of prescriptions for narcotic pain relievers Oxycontin and Percocet, and other controlled substances. This patient eventually had to be hospitalized after suffering an overdose in March. Hudson continued to prescribe powerful opioids to her even after he was told of concerns about her substance abuse. He was also notified by law enforcement that the patient may be engaging in drug-seeking behavior and abusing prescription medication. Hudson was recently arrested by the Seattle Police Department; the medical commission and state health department are working with law enforcement on the case. The statement of charges says Hudson wrote a prescription in the name of the patient’s friend so the prescription would be covered by the friend’s insurance. The patient’s friend wasn’t a patient of Hudson’s. Hudson’s alleged prescribing practices put the patient at risk of serious harm by continuing to prescribe controlled substances to the woman knowing she was an addict. Such prescribing practices show a lack of regard for patient safety and gross negligence.

      Action Taken:

      The respondent agrees to the entry of the following Agreed Order: The respondent surrenders his license to practice as a physician and surgeon.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
