A Clarksville doctor who stands accused of drug dealing at a pill mill that once overflowed with patients has been ordered by a Nashville judge to stop practicing medicine altogether, the Tennessean reports. Dr. Samson Orusa is now forbidden from seeing patients, writing prescriptions or supervising any nurse practitioners or other medical professionals, according to a court order from Davidson County Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle. The order goes further than prior restrictions, which forbade Orusa from prescribing opioids but allowed him to supervise others who could still write prescriptions.
