Oklahoma medical board suspends Tulsa doctor’s license

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State Board of Osteopathic Examiners has suspended the license of a south Tulsa doctor amid a federal investigation that reportedly connects him to numerous overdose deaths since 2011.

Executive Director Deborah Bruce tells the Tulsa World that the board suspended the license of Dr. Christopher Moses during an emergency hearing on Thursday. She says he’s entitled to a hearing within 30 days of his written request to the board. The board could make a decision to revoke or further suspend his license.

Court records show that the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency has been investigating Moses since at least September after receiving complaints about his prescribing large amounts of prescription narcotics.

Investigators have allegedly connected Moses to at least eight overdose deaths between July 2011 and February 2017. An affidavit shows Moses wrote narcotics prescriptions for the deceased.
