On July 6, 2017, Howard Gregg Diamond, M.D. was indicted on federal criminal charges including conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, possession with intent to distribute controlled substances, health care fraud, aiding and abetting, and money laundering.
The indictment alleges that Dr. Diamond conspired with others to write prescriptions for drugs including hydrocodone, oxymorphine, methadone, fentanyl, morphine, oxycodone, alprazolam, and zolpidem, without a legitimate medical purpose. The conspiracy is alleged to have resulted in the overdose deaths of at least seven individuals. At the time of his arrest, Dr. Diamond was reported to have on or about him a firearm, possible marijuana, and expired passports.
On July 20, 2017, the Texas Medical Board issued an order temporarily suspending Dr. Diamondís medical license based on their determination that his continuation in the practice of medicine would constitute a continuing threat to the public welfare. --James Loughlin, Stone Loughlin & Swanson, LLP
