A Bellevue doctor, Dr. Ken Jones, is being investigated by the Washington State Department of Health for prescribing human growth hormone to patients who do not have evidence of pituitary or hypothalmic diseases reports Seattle’s King5.com.
Jones maintains that his prescription regimen helps his patients feel and look young, along with diet and exercise. He claims he has done nothing wrong and that the growth hormone is not dangerous. Jones’ attorney says he will fight the charges against him.
The Health Department maintains that Jones’ prescribing practices are illegal. They are looking at his records to find out who he is prescribing to and what he is prescribing.
A hearing on the charges against Dr. Jones will be held in the fall.
