Doctor’s license revoked over prescriptions

A former central Indiana doctor has lost her state medical license because authorities say she prescribed painkillers over
the Internet without examining the patients.

The Indiana State Medical Licensing Board voted Thursday to revoke the license of Dr. Beverley Edwards, who practiced in
Anderson from the mid-1980s to the early 2000s.

Investigators told the board that the Web site Edwards used was registered to an Indianapolis address and that she used another
doctor's license number after her Drug Enforcement Administration privileges were suspended.

Edwards told The Herald Bulletin of Anderson that hackers were to blame for prescriptions filled online.

The board also added 90 days to the suspension of Dr. Phillip Foley of Middletown, who state officials say wrote painkiller
prescriptions that contributed to nine overdose deaths.
