OKLAHOMA CITY – Maurice Corman, M.D., has agreed to pay $52,500 to settle civil penalty claims stemming from allegations that he violated the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 and its regulations, announced United States Attorney Timothy J. Downing.

Dr. Corman practices family medicine in Piedmont, Oklahoma.  The United States alleges that from June 29, 2016, to Nov. 27, 2018, he acquired vials of testosterone from a pharmacy and failed to maintain any records of the acquisitions as required by law.  Dr. Corman also failed to keep any records related to the dispensing of the testosterone he acquired.

To resolve these allegations, Dr. Corman agreed to pay $52,500 to the United States.

In reaching this settlement, Dr. Corman did not admit liability, and the government did not make any concessions about the legitimacy of the claims.  The agreement allows the parties to avoid the delay, expense, inconvenience, and uncertainty involved in litigating the case.

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Office of Diversion Control.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Ronald R. Gallegos and Amanda R. Johnson prosecuted the case.
