North Carolina Medical Board

March 13, 2006

On March 13, 2006 the North Carolina Medical Board suspended psychiatrist Linda Kaufman Derbes' medical license for six months. Dr. Derbes was found to have prescribed controlled substances to a family member for no legitimate medical need. Dr. Derbes was doing this to obtain the drugs for her personal use. The Board's position is that unless lawfully prescribed by someone else, Dr. Derbes shall refrain from the use of mind- or mood-altering drugs and must comply with other conditions of her suspension.
