A Powell doctor’s license was suspended after allegations surfaced that he employed a felon to treat patients.
Adam P. Hall, 39, also is accused of claiming to have examined patients and prescribed drugs when he was in another country.
According to the State Medical Board of Ohio, Hall employed Kevin Bowers, 42, of Grove City, a former physician whose license was revoked in 2010.
Investigators said Bowers examined patients and issued prescriptions on blank forms that were pre-signed by Hall.
Investigators also said that records show Hall claimed to have examined patients and prescribed medication when he was instead on vacation in Italy and Switzerland.
Hall has not been charged with any crime. He has the option for an appeal hearing before the board.
His license was also suspended in 2007 after he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and substance abuse issues.
