Doctor Shopping Charges
Criminal drug charges involving doctor shopping relate to the practice of a patient visiting several medical professionals, without coordinating any of them, to receive several different prescriptions for medication, such as pain killers. This is one of the most popular ways to fraudulently receive
prescription drugs, such as Ritalin, Ambien and Vicodin. These drugs, typically used for medical purposes to help patients, have also gained fame for their use in recreational environments, and have similarly created an entire new branch of crime as people across the country scramble to get their hands on them.
