New Jersey psychiatrist's license is permanently revoked

November 20, 2017

Dr. Joel B. Glass, a psychiatrist in New Jersey, had his license permanently revoked after he allegedly prescribed 75,000 oxycodone pills to two patients without justification and without conducting mandatory look-ups through the New Jersey Prescription Monitoring Program.

Officials allege Glass indiscriminately prescribed dangerously high quantities of opioids, as well as other drugs, despite warnings from fellow doctors, pharmacies or insurance providers.

To resolve the allegations against him, Glass signed an agreement with the medical board to immediately retire his medical license, "with such retirement to be deemed a permanent revocation."

Under the terms of the agreement, Glass is prohibited from reapplying for his license. He also must pay a $25,000 civil penalty and reimburse the state about $42,000 for costs associated with the investigation.
