CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The West Virginia Board of Medicine says in a complaint that a Martinsburg doctor isn't qualified to practice medicine.
The complaint alleges that Dr. Tressie Montene Duffy pre-signed prescription pads and directed non-physician staff to prescribe controlled substances while she wasn't in the office. She also is accused of dispensing prescription medication without being registered as a dispensing physician.
The complaint also alleges that Duffy exposed her breasts to staff and patients after she underwent augmentation surgery.
Duffy's lawyer, Lisa Lilly, tells the Charleston Daily Mail (http://bit.ly/1yvx1m5 ) that the doctor denies any wrongdoing.
Duffy is the CEO and co-owner of West Virginia Weight and Wellness Inc. in Martinsburg.
The board issued the complaint against Duffy in July. A Nov. 17 hearing is set before a hearing examiner.
