WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) - A doctor in Winchester surrendered his license to practice medicine because of allegations that he inappropriately prescribed several medications, including the painkiller Oxycodone.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that Quentin F. Murray may not apply for reinstatement of his license for two years under a deal reached Thursday with Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure.
In May, the board suspended Murray's license in an emergency order. Board documents allege that Murray inappropriately prescribed several medications to a woman with whom he was having a sexual affair. The order also said that Murray was not "legally entitled" to prescribe methadone to a 32-year-old man who then died in 2010 after suffering cardiac arrest.
