COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio medical board has disciplined a doctor who faced allegations of problems with the way he prescribed painkillers.
The board on Wednesday suspended the license of Dr. Myron Shank for three months but said he could continue working during that time.
The board also required Shank to take three medical education courses within six months.
Shank said after the board's hearing that he disputed every allegation against him and was deciding whether to appeal.
A medical board examiner said Shank didn't follow up on allegations that patients were selling pain pills he prescribed for them.
The allegations don't mention Shank's work at Allen Correctional Institution, from which he resigned earlier this year after the state placed him on administrative leave following the suicide of an inmate under his care.
