On Wednesday, State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy Executive Director Steven W. Schierholt announced that Dr. Timothy S. Manuel, M.D., was indicted on a total of 29 felony counts, including 14 counts of Aggravated Trafficking in Drugs, 14 counts of Illegal Processing of Drug Documents, and one count of Workers Compensation Fraud.

In a press release, the pharmacy board said that it began a joint investigation with the DEA, BCI, Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and the State Medical Board of Ohio in May 2012, in response to concerns that Manuel was prescribing controlled substances without meeting the minimum standards of patient care.

In April 2014, a search warrant was conducted at Hillsboro Urgent Care, where Dr. Manuel worked. Patient records were seized and no arrests were made during the search warrant, according to the press release.
