Virginia Doctor’s License Suspended After Convictions

The Virginia Board of Medicine suspended the medical license of Dr. Clarence Scranage after he was convicted of drug-related offenses, including conspiracy to distribute oxycodone and distribution of controlled dangerous substances in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Dr. Scranage’s practice reportedly included general medicine, emergency medicine and pain management. Prosecutors alleged he wrote more than 1200 prescriptions in approximately five years, in some cases for patients he did not see or examine.  He was convicted of approximately 19 drug-related charges and was sentenced to 30 years in prison and the Virginia Board of Medicine suspended his license.
