Board reprimands psychiatrist John Heather over prescribing

May 21, 2013

On April 10, 2013, the Medical Board of Ohio reprimanded psychiatrist John Heather.

The Board’s document states that Heather voluntarily entered into this decision to settle charges against him and that he  admittedly prescribed Adderall to a family member but failed to document the diagnosis and purpose for prescribing it; failed to complete and maintain accurate records reflecting his evaluation and treatment of this family member and admitted prescribing it to another family member until she could see her primary care physician.

Heather is required to obtain additional education in prescribing and recordkeeping as terms of this reprimand.
