Pain clinic doctor is back in the news

Marion Countians may remember stories about Lebanon Medical Solutions, the pain management clinic that operated out of the Lebanon Trade Center briefly in 2010.

Well, the doctor who prescriptions for the clinic, Dr. Najam Azmat, is back in the news. Now, he is operating in Lexington.

Two reporters for the Lexington Herald-Leader, Josh Kegley and Valerie Honeycutt Spears, have written a story about Lexington Algiatry, another pain management clinic where Azmat is the doctor of record. 

Azmat is now under investigation by the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure over his "prescribing practices", according to the Herald-Leader. Other doctors have complained about their patients  receiving numerous prescriptions from Lexington Algiatry, and residents near the clinic have complained about numerous visitors from outside of Fayette County and even outside of Kentucky.
