TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A state board has suspended the license of a Tulsa doctor after an investigation found she was prescribing large amounts of drugs to patients without doing exams or keeping adequate records.

The Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1c0J4Un ) reports that investigators say Tamerlane Rozsa prescribed potentially lethal doses of what patients requested, not what was medically necessary. She was cited for 14 violations, including gross or repeated negligence in the practice of medicine.

According to a complaint from the Oklahoma State Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision, Rozsa also had prescribed dangerous controlled substances to herself.

The medical board held an emergency hearing last week and suspended her license. Messages seeking comment by the newspaper were left with Rozsa.
