The Show Cause Order proposed the revocation of Registrant’s Certificate of Registration No. BN8871231 on the ground that he has ‘‘no state authority to handle controlled substances.’’ Order to Show Cause, Government Exhibit (GX) 2, at 1 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3)). For the same reason, the Order also proposed the denial of any of Registrant’s ‘‘applications for renewal or modification of such registration and VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:12 Apr 03, 2018 Jkt 244001 any applications for any other DEA registrations.’’ Id. With respect to the Agency’s jurisdiction, the Show Cause Order alleged that Registrant is registered as a practitioner in schedules II through V, pursuant to DEA Certificate of Registration No. BN8871231, at the address of Advanced Urgent Care, 5058 City Ave., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Id. The Order also alleged that this registration does not expire until October 31, 2019. Id. As substantive grounds for the proceeding, the Show Cause Order alleged that on September 15, 2017, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania State Board of Medicine ‘‘issued an Order of Temporary Suspension and Notice of Hearing in which it suspended [Registrant’s] license to practice’’ medicine. Id. The Order alleged that, as a result, he is ‘‘currently without authority to practice medicine or handle controlled substances in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the [S]tate in which [he is] registered with the DEA.’’ Id. at 1–2. Based on his ‘‘lack of authority to handle controlled substances in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,’’ the Order asserted that ‘‘DEA must revoke’’ his registration. Id. at 2 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(a)(3); 21 CFR 1301.37(b)). The Show Cause Order notified Registrant of his right to request a hearing on the allegations or to submit a written statement in lieu of a hearing, the procedure for electing either option, and the consequence for failing to elect either option. Id. (citing 21 CFR 1301.43). The Show Cause Order also notified Registrant of his right to submit a corrective action plan. Id. at 2–3 (citing 21 U.S.C. 824(c)(2)(C)). The Government states that on October 27, 2017, ‘‘personnel from DEA’s Philadelphia Field Division personally served the [Show Cause] Order on Registrant at the Philadelphia Federal Detention Center where he was incarcerated.’’ Government’s Request for Final Agency Action (RFFA), at 2 (citing GX 5). Specifically, a DEA Diversion Investigator from that Field Division states that she, along with a Task Force Officer, ‘‘presented the [Order] to Dr. Nikparvar-Fard’’ and that he ‘‘took the [Order].’’ GX5, at 1. On December 21, 2018, the Government forwarded its Request for Final Agency Action and an evidentiary record to my Office. Therein, the Government represents that it has not received a hearing request and that Registrant ‘‘has not otherwise corresponded or communicated with DEA regarding the Order served on him.’’ RFFA, at 2. Based on the PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14503 Government’s representation and the record, I find that more than 30 days have passed since the Order to Show Cause was served on Registrant, and he has neither requested a hearing nor submitted a written statement in lieu of a hearing. See 21 CFR 1301.43(d). Accordingly, I find that Registrant has waived his right to a hearing or to submit a written statement and issue this Decision and Order based on relevant evidence submitted by the Government. I make the following findings. Findings of Fact Registrant is a physician who is registered as a practitioner in schedules II–V pursuant to Certificate of Registration No. BN8871231, at the registered address of Advanced Urgent Care, 5058 City Ave., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. See GX 1 (DEA Certification of Registration Status), at 1. Although not alleged in the Show Cause Order, I also find that Registrant is the holder of DATA-Waiver Identification Number XN8871231, see id. at 1–2,1 which authorizes Registrant to dispense or prescribe schedule III–V narcotic controlled substances which ‘‘have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration . . . specifically for use in maintenance or detoxification treatment’’ for up to 275 patients. 21 CFR 1301.28(a) & (b)(1)(iii). His registration does not expire until October 31, 2019. Id. The record also shows, and I so find, that on September 22, 2016, Registrant ‘‘submitted a new online application for a DEA registration bearing an address of 721 Bethleh[e]m Pike, Montgomeryville,’’ Pennsylvania, as a practitioner in schedules II–V. I find that this new application remains pending. See id. at 2. On September 15, 2017, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s State Board of Medicine issued an ‘‘Order of Temporary Suspension and Notice Hearing’’ to Registrant that ‘‘TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED’’ his ‘‘license to practice as a medical 1 The DEA Certification of Registration Status confirms that Registrant has DATA-Waiver Authority, but it does not include the identification number for that authority. However, I take official notice that the Agency’s registration records show that Registrant’s DATA-Waiver Identification Number is XN8871231. Under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), an agency ‘‘may take official notice of facts at any stage in a proceeding—even in the final decision.’’ U.S. Dept. of Justice, Attorney General’s Manual on the Administrative Procedure Act 80 (1947) (Wm. W. Gaunt & Sons, Inc., Reprint 1979). In accordance with the APA and DEA’s regulations, Registrant is ‘‘entitled on timely request to an opportunity to show to the contrary.’’ 5 U.S.C. 556(e); see also 21 CFR 1316.59(e).
