Psychiatrist Terrence C. Casey reprimanded in New York and Tennessee for prescribing violation
February 28, 2011
On December 22, 2010, the New York State Department of Health Board for Professional Medical Conduct censured and reprimanded psychiatrist Terrence Charles Casey and ordered him to pay a $2,500 fine with conditions.
According to the state’s document, Casey, who practiced in the state of Tennessee on a locum tenens basis during a portion of 2010, was reprimanded by the medical licensing authority of that state in January 2010 based on having prescribed to two individuals without having first established a physician-patient relationship; performing a physical exam or maintaining medical records and fraudulently creating progress notes for two patients without seeing the patients during his employment with the Centerstone mental health facility in Nashville.
This conduct, had it occurred in the state of New York, would constitute misconduct in the form of practicing the profession fraudulently, negligence on more than one occasion, incompetence on more than one occasion and failure to maintain a record for reach patient which accurately reflects the evaluation and treatment of the patient.
