Suspected of Medical Malpractice, West Virginia doctor gives up license
On behalf of WEST VIRGINIA PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER, Brooks West – A Cabell County, West Virginia doctor recently surrendered her medical license following an investigation of her drug prescribing practices. The West Virginia Board of Osteopathy suspended Dr. Anita Dawson’s license in April 2010 after federal agents raided her Milton office. There are reports that Dawson’s lawyer then sent a letter to the board in July offering to forfeit Dawson’s license to practice medicine. The board accepted the surrender last week. Although, according to the board, eight of Dawson’s patients died from overdoses, no criminal charges have been filed.
