CONCORD, N.H. — A New Hampshire pediatrician who disputed allegations that he prescribed large amounts of oxycodone pills to patients and that his conduct with patients was questionable has agreed to have his license revoked for five years.
Earlier this year, the New Hampshire Board of Medicine suspended the license of Dr. Mark Weinreb of Franklin. He was accused of prescribing a teenager more than 2,000 pills over 11 months. Weinreb said he prescribed two a day and the teenager did not have all the pills at once.
The board said another patient was prescribed more than 1,200 pills over 10 months. Weinreb said he prescribed one pill a night.
The board also accused Weinreb of unprofessional conduct with patients on Facebook, which he denied.
