CA Psychiatrist Soleyman Mirakhor (U of Reims '75) Surrenders Medical License; Was Disciplined for Excessive Prescribing

May 23, 2020

On May 21, 2020, psychiatrist Soleyman Mirakhor, who practiced in the southern California city of Oxnard, surrendered his medical license to the Medical Board of California.

Mirakhor was under a disciplinary action following a January 2020 Medical Board decision which placed his license on seven years' probation with various standard terms and conditions.

The Board’s 37-page document lists out charges against Mirakhor which include Gross Negligence, Repeated Negligent Acts, Incompetence, Excessive Prescribing, Prescribing without Medical Indication, Inadequate and Inaccurate Record Keeping, and Unprofessional Conduct, all relative to four patients.

One of the patients was hospitalized with respiratory failure and nearly died from drug-to-drug interactions, due not only to Mirakhor’s excessive prescribing but also his failure to run a Controlled Substance Utilization Review & Evaluation System (CURES) report--a standard action from which he would have discovered that the patient was receiving prescriptions from another practitioner which had known adverse interactions with the drugs he was prescribing the patient.
