Kansas State Board of Healing Arts Issues Suspension of Topeka Doctor's Medical License

By  | 

The Kansas State Board of Healing Arts has issued an emergency suspension of a Topeka doctor's medical license.

The board Monday suspended Pravin Sampat's license citing the reason as "imminent danger to public health and safety".

A complaint filed with the board alleged Sampat was issuing prescriptions for narcotics without a medical cause in exchange for money.

Sampat has had a Kansas license since 1979 and the board says state law allows him to ask for a hearing before an administrative law judge.

Sampat's office is located on Southwest 29th street in Topeka.
