Coffee County Doctors Facing Issues

Dr. Harrison Yang, a Manchester doctor, appeared in federal court in Chattanooga on Friday. The 75 year-old cardiologist was charged earlier this year for writing opioid prescriptions to patients for no legitimate medical purpose. Dr. Yang pleaded guilty in August to one count of making a false statement related to a health care matter.
Chattanoogan.com reports that during the appearance on Friday, Yang was sentenced to 3 years probation, $9,500 in fines and pay TeenCare $61.59 as restitution. Also, Dr. Yang will no longer be allowed to prescribe controlled medicines like opioids.

In other medical news; the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners reprimanded a Manchester physician, Dr. Ronald Williams. The board claims Williams failed to make medical records available for inspection or copying after agreeing to do so. This was concerning a case in 2018 related to a malpractice settlement.
Because this was a reprimand, Dr. Williams is still allowed to practice.
