NJ doctor’s license revoked over prescriptions

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A central New Jersey physician who officials say engaged in a “grossly negligent pattern” of prescribing painkillers has had his medical license revoked.

State officials announced the action Monday, saying it became effective when the Board of Medical Examiners ratified a consent order signed by the doctor, Ali Mansour, whose practice was based in Somerset.

Under the agreement, Mansour can reapply for his medical license in two year. But he will be permanently banned from prescribing controlled dangerous substances.

Authorities say Mansour often prescribed excessive amounts of potentially addictive drugs, putting his patients at risk. They say he also continued to prescribe increasing dosages to patients, despite clear evidence that they were abusing drugs.

A telephone number for Mansour could not be located Monday.
