Wauwatosa doctor charged with illegally prescribing drugs

Posted on June 29, 2016 10:56 am under Medical Malpractice

Milwaukee-area doctor Steven Kotsonis and his former clinic office manager are facing multiple charges for illegally prescribing powerful painkillers to patients.

Federal documents say Kotsonis gave out prescriptions without thoroughly examining patients, and sometimes would not see patients at all before giving them prescriptions. Susan Moyer, the office manager, deemed herself the “OxyCzar” and would hand out prescriptions to people willing to pay cash for them. According to reports by Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the prosecutors claim the incidents occurred at Compassionate Care Clinic in Wauwatosa in 2012 and 2013. The clinic is now closed. Kotsonis’ attorney says his client plans to plead not guilty and continue practicing medicine.
