Pikeville doctor agrees to restrictions in pain pill case

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT/Lexington Herald Leader) - The second of two Pikeville doctors who improperly prescribed pain pills to each other has agreed to prescribing restrictions.

The Lexington Herald Leader reports Doctor William Gaunt will have limits on his ability to write prescriptions, take a course of prescribing and must abstain from alcohol and drugs.

Gaunt and Doctor Chadward Thacker were practicing at Pikeville Medical Center when they came under investigation last fall.

Thacker earlier agreed to similar limitations to those in Gaunt's case.

Both doctors completed drug treatment and were deemed fit to practice.
