Dr. Ley's Patients At Risk
After the arrest of central Indiana Dr. Larry Ley and his associates by drug enforcement agents last week, the patients under their care may be in danger. Many patients under their care were taking the drug Suboxone, a drug prescribed to help treat addictions.
The drug is intended to be used with strict supervision, counseling, and monitoring. The doctors who were prescribing this drug were doing so for cash exchange, and without follow through on monitoring for the patients under their care.
Now that this practice has been put on hold, patients who were on this drug are likely to experience withdrawal symptoms if they are cut off from their doctor completely. This will likely happen if many of them were taking the substance without supervision, and if they cannot get an appointment with another doctor before their current prescriptions run out.
If you or a family member have been given a prescription to Suboxone and have not received adequate care or monitoring for help with addictions, and sustained a serious injury, overdose or death, you can call the medical negligence lawyers of Wagner Reese at (888) 204-8440 for a free consultation.
