Las Vegas doctor risks losing license over treatment of hypertension



In an effort to help treat out-of-control and un­diagnosed hypertension -- the second leading cause of death in the United States -- Las Vegas physician Kevin C. Petersen set up an Internet practice this past summer for uninsured patients around the country.

But his BPClinic.com could cost the doctor his license and result in a felony conviction that both lands him in the slammer and lightens his wallet.

"I don't look at myself as a criminal," he said. "This work is important. I believe I'm on the right side of things. Too many people can't afford to pay $100 or more for a doctor visit to get a prescription."
