ROBERT W. FICK, Plaintiff and Appellant, v. BOARD OF MEDICAL EXAMINERS, Defendant and Appellant

March 10, 1969

Robert W. Fick

The action of the Board was based on its findings that Dr. Fick was guilty of unprofessional conduct such as, conviction under statute regulating narcotics or dangerous drugs, misuse of narcotics, drugs or alcohol, and violation of statutes regulating narcotics and dangerous drugs. They also declared Dr. Fick a danger to himself and others.

Dr. Fick pleaded guilty to all the charges and was sent to Metropolitan State Hospital, but not before he had issued several false and fictitious narcotic prescriptions.
