Two physicians in Palm Beach County were among 10 who had their medical licenses suspended this week by the Florida Department of Health.
Dr. Donald B. Bletz of Boca Raton, and Dr. Cesar Augusto DeLeon, of Boynton Beach, both received emergency suspension orders. Bletz is accused of inappropriately prescribing controlled substances, failing to adequately keep patient medical records, and failing to practice medicine without the level of care recognized in general law.
DeLeon acknowledged violating Florida state statutes when he pleaded guilty this year to knowingly and intentionally distributing oxycodone without a genuine medical purpose.
Both physicians will have a hearing later this month.
