New Jersey physician fighting to keep license

Asbury Park Press, January 3, 2008
The New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners must decide if Dr. Philip B. Eatough, 60, overprescribed pain medications and should have his license to practice medicine temporarily suspended until an administrative law judge can determine whether or not it should be permanently revoked or suspended. An investigation by detectives and federal agents resulted in an 11-count federal indictment that has charged the doctor with prescribing the painkillers oxycodone and morphine sulfate to some of his patients illegally.
