Doctors punished for ‘inappropriate’ prescriptions

The Arizona Medical Board is punishing two doctors after saying they’ve been too liberal with the prescriptions they hand out.

The board says it is banning Dr. James Eisenberg from giving out prescriptions for five years after finding that four patients were getting Oxycodone for unverified chronic pain, and that three were teens.

Eisenberg is the same doctor who was reprimanded in February after he wrote medical marijuana certifications for 483 patients after failing to check patients’ prescription-drug histories as required.

The board also has revoked the medical license of Dr. Darryl Mohr, who they say inappropriately prescribed pain medication to five patients. One of those patients died.

Mohr also had been disciplined for writing medical marijuana certifications to 266 patients without checking their histories.
