[ATG] State files emergency suspensions against Wagoner Medical Center doctors
Start Date: 3/18/2013 All Day
End Date: 3/18/2013
Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s office seeks to temporarily suspend the licenses of four Wagoner Medical Center physicians.

Zoeller’s office filed the petitions today with the Medical Licensing Board of Indiana against Dr. Don Wagoner, his wife Dr. Marilyn Wagoner, Dr. Robert Brewer and Dr. William Terpstra. Wagoner Medical Center has an office at 821 N. Dixon Rd. in Kokomo and 605 E. 7th St. in Burlington.

According to the petitions, an investigation revealed unsafe pharmacological mixes, high prescribing rates for controlled pain medications and numerous patient deaths resulting from multiple drug toxicity.

“Evidence revealed that the practices of these doctors pose a clear danger to their patients and the public,” said Gabrielle Owens, Deputy Director of the Attorney General’s Licensing Enforcement and Homeowner Protection Unit. “These types of aggressive prescribing practices can lead to diversion, abuse and addiction. Our office has worked diligently to bring these actions quickly in order to ensure patients are protected while formal licensing complaints are being completed.”

The board will consider all four of the petitions for summary suspension at its next meeting on March 27. Owens said if the suspensions are granted, the physicians could not practice medicine for at least 90 days while the Attorney General’s office drafts formal complaints to submit to the board. In licensing cases, the board has the authority to determine what, if any, disciplinary action will be taken.
