GRUNDY CENTER, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa doctor cleared of criminal charges that accused him of running an unauthorized methadone clinic has surrendered his medical license.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/19YLoZh ) Dr. Frank Lamp, of Grundy Center, entered the agreement last week with the Iowa Board of Medicine. The documents were released Wednesday.
Lamp announced in April that he would close his practice instead of undergo more scrutiny from the board to stay in business. Their orders prohibited him from administering or dispensing controlled substances.
Lamp was charged in April 2012 with writing methadone prescriptions to three patients without a special required permit. He was cleared in March of nine misdemeanor charges in Grundy County District Court.
Lamp still faced administrative charges from the board, and it ordered him to follow the new restrictions.
