Doctor Shopping Attorney in Santa Rosa
Call a Dedicated Criminal Defense Lawyer
Doctor shopping refers to the act of obtaining prescription drugs from several physicians without disclosing your visits to the other doctors. Popular drugs involved in doctor shopping include pain killers and benzodiazepine. This practice is very common in patients who have undergone several surgeries or live with a chronic illness and have been prescribed these habit-forming medications in the past.
If you have been accused of doctor shopping, you need to realize that this charge qualifies as prescription fraud under the Uniform Controlled Substances Act. This law strictly prohibits individuals from obtaining controlled substances through “misrepresentation, fraud, forgery, deception, or subterfuge.”
If you are convicted of doctor shopping, you may be facing penalties such as:
- Up to a year in jail (for misdemeanors)
- Up to 3 years in jail (for felonies)
- Up to $20,000 in fines
