Dr. Christopher Parker Gay - Another Sanction

The ongoing saga of Sheffield osteopath Christopher P. Gay continues. The story up to now:

May 27, 2009 - Dr. Gay's license to practice medicine was suspended by the Alabama Board of Medical Examiners due to his refusal to take a drug test.

September 9, 2010 - Dr. Gay was placed on probation by the Board and his authority to write scripts for certain scheduled drugs was negated.

October 13, 2010 - Dr. Gay was ordered to pay the Board $6,690.65 in administrative costs.

April 20, 2011 - Dr. Gay was again suspended from practicing medicine in Alabama due to failing a drug test.

August 4, 2011 - Dr. Gay was placed on probation a second time, again with restrictions placed on his practice.

August 15, 2011 - Dr. Gay was ordered to pay unknown administrative costs (this Board directive has not yet been published on their site).

It is known that Dr. Gay is banned from treating Medicare patients. He has also lost his insurance provider status with several companies and sources have reported his practice is now run on a cash only basis. Authorities at Helen Keller Hospital have refused comment on the situation.
