July 10, 2017

The Medical Board of California has accused psychiatrist Dr. Harry Henderson III of gross negligence, repeated acts of clearly excessive prescribing, failure to maintain adequate and accurate medical records and other licensing violations.  He allegedly wrote hundreds of controlled-substance prescriptions for drug-addicted patients, without proper examinations and medical need.

The Board's accusation alleges Henderson has a history of negligence involving six patients over the past seven years.
