E9–10301 Filed 5–4–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE P DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE Drug Enforcement Administration [Docket No. 07–24] Patrick W. Stodola, M.D.; Revocation of Registration On February 7, 2007, the Deputy Assistant Administrator, Office of Diversion Control, Drug Enforcement Administration, issued an Order to Show Cause to Patrick W. Stodola, M.D. (Respondent), of Chicago, Illinois. The Show Cause Order proposed the revocation of Respondent’s DEA Certificate of Registration, AS2352653, as a practitioner, and proposed the denial of his pending application to renew his registration, on the ground that his ‘‘continued registration is inconsistent with the public interest.’’ Show Cause Order at 1. The Show Cause Order specifically alleged that while Respondent is licensed as a physician only in Illinois, he prescribed controlled substances, via the internet, to persons located in twenty-six other States. Id. The Order alleged that Respondent’s prescribing constituted the unauthorized practice of medicine because he did not possess the licenses required to practice medicine (and prescribe) in these States, and that the prescriptions he authorized ‘‘were not issued in the usual course of professional practice as required by 21 CFR 1306.04.’’ Id. at 1–2. On March 14, 2007, Respondent filed a request for a hearing and the matter was placed on the docket of the Agency’s Administrative Law Judges. Following pre-hearing procedures, a hearing was held on October 16, 2007, in Chicago, Illinois. At the hearing, both parties elicited testimony and introduced documentary evidence for the record. Following the hearing, both parties submitted briefs containing their proposed findings of fact, conclusions of law and argument. On September 16, 2008, the ALJ issued her recommended decision (ALJ). In evaluating Respondent’s experience in dispensing controlled substances and record of compliance with applicable VerDate Nov<24>2008 23:12 May 04, 2009 Jkt 217001 laws, the ALJ concluded that Respondent had violated the medical practice standards adopted by multiple States which specifically require that a physician physically examine a patient before prescribing a drug to him/her. ALJ at 33–34. The ALJ further concluded that Respondent had violated the laws of numerous States by prescribing to their residents without holding the requisites licenses to practice medicine and/or dispense controlled substances. Id. at 34. While the ALJ found that Respondent has retained his Illinois medical license and has not been convicted of a crime, she further found that Respondent has ‘‘refus[ed] to acknowledge his wrongdoing.’’ Id. at 32 & 34. The ALJ thus ‘‘conclude[d] that Respondent is unwilling or unable to accept the responsibilities inherent in a DEA registration,’’ and recommended that his registration be revoked and that any pending applications be denied. Id. at 35. Respondent did not file exceptions to the ALJ’s decision.1 Thereafter, the record was forwarded to me for final agency action. Having considered the entire record in this matter, I adopt the ALJ’s conclusions of law with respect to the public interest inquiry. I further adopt the ALJ’s recommended sanction. Accordingly, I will revoke Respondent’s registration and deny his pending application to renew the registration. I make the following findings. Findings Respondent is the holder of DEA Certificate of Registration, AS2352653, which authorizes him to dispensing controlled substances in schedules II through V as a practitioner. According to Respondent’s Certificate of Registration, the expiration date of his registration was February 28, 2006. It is undisputed, however, that Respondent filed a timely renewal application. I therefore find that Respondent’s registration has remained in effect pending the issuance of this Order. See 5 U.S.C. 558(c). Respondent holds a medical license in Illinois. Tr. 85, 190–91. In his testimony, Respondent acknowledged that he is not licensed to practice medicine in any other State, id. at 85 & 191, and that he has never obtained a license to practice in any other State. Id. at 85. Moreover, Respondent does not hold a DEA registration for a location in any State other than Illinois. Id. at 191. 1 While the Government filed exceptions, the exceptions do not go to the merits of the proceeding. PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20727 In early 2006, Respondent read an advertisement which had been placed by Just USA Meds 2 in the employment section of the Chicago Tribune’s Web site. Id. at 165. Respondent called the phone number contained in the ad, and spoke with Challen Sullivan, Just USA’s owner, who told him that his business ‘‘was to be a provider of medical services,’’ but not ‘‘a dispenser or a vending machine of any particular medications.’’ Id. at 87. Thereafter, Respondent entered into an agreement with the entity under which Just USA Meds would arrange for customers, who were seeking controlled substances, to speak with him by telephone. Id. at 14. Respondent was paid $20 per consultation and would typically issue a controlled-substance prescription for the patient upon the conclusion of the consultation. Id. The prescriptions were then sent to pharmacies which had entered into arrangements with Just USA Meds to dispense the drugs to its customers. According to Respondent, a customer would contact Just USA Meds, identify himself, and provide a copy of the credit card which he intended to use to pay his bill. Id. at 91. Respondent asserted that a customer would then be interviewed by an employee of Just USA Meds, who would ask him the name of his doctor, what other drugs he was taking, and whether he would agree not to seek drugs from another source if Respondent (or the other doctors engaged by Just USA Meds) issued a prescription for him. Id. at 92. Just USA would then contact the customer’s credit card company to verify whether the card was valid and to request a precharge for the anticipated amount of the services and drugs being provided. Id. After Just USA obtained the pre-charge, the customer would then be scheduled for a consultation with Respondent or another physician. Id. at 104. Respondent admitted that he did not physically examine any of the persons who were referred to him by Just USA Meds. Tr. 18 (testimony of DI); id. at 84 (testimony of Respondent).3 Rather, Respondent asserted that the customers were required to send in medical records including the documentation of a physical exam which had to be less than one year old. Id. at 97–98. He also maintained that persons who claimed ‘‘some sort of structural harm’’ were 2 In this decision, Just USA Meds will also be referred to as ‘‘Just USA.’’ 3 Respondent did not even physically examine those persons he prescribed to who resided in the Chicago area.
