Portland methadone doc Robert Campbell loses his license

Dr. Robert Perry Campbell, MD, recently associated with the RAM Clinic in SE Portland, has had his license to practice medical revoked by the Oregon Board of Medical Examiners.

The OMB case review of Dr. Campbell “reveals a pattern of failing to comply with Federal opioid treatment standards and poor clinical practice care in regard to his management of patients receiving Suboxone or Subtext (Schedule III, Buprenorphine)…” More, Dr. Campbell “Over the course of the past seven years, Licensee (Dr. Campbell) has exhibited a pattern of risky behavior and sexual compulsivity, to include picking up prostitutes, sometimes for the ostensible reason of ‘rescue.'”

The case review is lengthy, thorough, and illustrates both a bad doctor and a vigilant state office. Please take a moment to download and read the Actions Report linked below.
