(MIDDLETOWN, IN) - A Middletown doctor won’t be able to practice medicine for 90-days.
The Indiana medical licensing board granted the State Attorney General's office request for a temporary suspension of Dr. Philip Foley's license.
The call came after a review of records revealed he had written the prescriptions for nine patients who died of drug overdoses.
Further review showed Foley had written over $93,000 prescriptions in just over 3 years.
Attorney General Greg Zoeller called Foley a "clear and present danger" to public safety in the suspension request.
The 73-year-old doctor is defending his practice.
The AG's office may seek to suspend Foley's license to practice medicine in Indiana permanently.
