A Las Vegas physician has surrendered his license to practice medicine for at least 10 years, the Nevada State Board of Osteopathic Medicine announced Friday.
Dianna Hegeduis, executive director of the board, said the allegations against Dr. Weldon Bond include overprescribing and excessive prescribing for a patient; inadequate and incomplete medical records; and prescribing controlled pain medications that included OxyContin and Hydrocodone without federal Drug Enforcement Administration registration.
Bond is precluded from reapplying for his osteopathic medical license for at least 10 years.
He has also agreed to reimburse the board $14,000 for costs incurred in the investigation. Bond was unavailable for comment Friday.
In exchange for surrendering his license, the board dismissed a second complaint which contained allegations of excessive and overprescribing pain medications for 17 other patients.
According to board documents, the DEA registration for Bond expired in July 2009 but he continued to write prescriptions throughout that year.
