Doctor Arrested in Pain-Pill Investigation

Lakeland Ledger

A Tampa doctor who also worked at a pain clinic in Lakeland was more than willing to prescribe hydrocodone to an undercover officer who had no medical need for it, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office says. As the Lakeland Ledger reports, Dr. Aaron Bran­ham Roush has been in trouble before for his prescribing practices.
