State Restricts Medical License of Hart County Physician

A Cave City physician’s medical license has been restricted following an investigation into his prescribing practices. 

The investigation into Dr. Chandra Reddy began when the local drug task force received a tip that he was prescribing prescription drugs without having patients visit his office.  The Glasgow Daily Times reports investigators also found evidence the doctor was trading prescriptions for cash and marijuana and that he was using marijuana himself. 

Reddy, who specializes in internal medicine, is no longer allowed to prescribe controlled substances until he meets a number of requirements set by the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure. 

The board previously sanctioned Reddy in 2010 following an investigation that he had inappropriate contact with two female patients during exams.
