Med 1st won't reopen until doctor's medical license is active again

Posted: Updated:

The Med 1st office raided by federal agents last week, is not seeing patients.

Even though the office was closed, the doors were unlocked on Monday. However, medical assistants say they were not seeing patients.

14 News is told medical assistants are advising patients to make appointments with family physicians. They cannot reopen until Dr. Diane Crowley's medical license is active again.

We first reported Friday that Dr. Crowley was temporarily suspended by the Indiana Medical Licensing Board. The state alleges she engaged in dangerous prescription practices and allowed non-qualified individuals to issue prescriptions under her name.

DEA agents shut the clinic down last Tuesday when the medicaid fraud control unit was there. The clinic reopened on Wednesday.
