An Oklahoma City doctor has agreed to pay the federal government to settle alleged drug violations.
Dr. Stanley K. Rogers, an osteopathic physician, will pay $40,000 to settle civil penalty claims stemming from allegations of the Controlled Substances Act, U.S. Attorney’s spokesman Bob Troester said.
Under the agreement, Rogers did not admit liability nor did the government give credence to the claims.
The government alleged that between Jan. 1, 2012, and Feb. 4, 2014, at least one employee in Rogers’ office used the doctor’s Drug Enforcement Administration number to acquire prescription drugs, Troester said.
More than 20,000 doses of Schedule III and Schedule IV drugs were obtained without legitimate medical purpose, he said.
Those classes of drugs include low-level painkillers and anxiety drugs. The particular drugs prescribed were not available.
Rogers did not provide effective control against theft, nor did he properly maintain or review records pertaining to drugs purchased using his DEA number, the government alleges.
No lawsuits were filed in the matter. The agreement was reached between Rogers, his attorneys and prosecutors to avoid the time and cost of litigation, Troester said.
The agreement was signed June 19. Full payment of the penalties was required within five days.
