Former patients call Calif. doctor “a legal drug dealer”

Former patients of Dr. Lisa Tseng – who has been linked to several fatalities due to overdoses of prescription narcotics including OxyContin, hydrocodone and Xanax – say she freely prescribed large quantities of pills without examining them, according to this article. After getting hooked on the meds, they soon turned to heroin because it was cheaper and easier to get, the article says. Tseng is currently under investigation by the DEA, which has yanked her medical license on the grounds that she is “an imminent danger to public health and safety.”
