DEA investigating Tennessee doctor

By  | 

ONEIDA, Tenn. (WYMT/WATE) - An investigation is taking place into a Tennessee doctor's office, regarding drug overdose deaths.

The United States Attorneys Office for the Eastern District is involved. A DEA agent out of London, Kentucky says Tuesday's raid is part of an 18-month long investigation involving multiple law enforcement agencies.

They took documents from offices owned by Dr. David Coffey.

The investigation involves the clinic, pharmacy and Coffey Family Medical practice.

In January 2017, Coffey was fined $500 by the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners for buying Botox for personal use.

According to meeting minutes, Coffey told a nurse to order Botox from the "cheapest source she could find."

Coffey was unaware of whether the purchased Botox was FDA-approved and of its source.
