OKLAHOMA CITY — Dr. Bruce Gilmore appeared before the Oklahoma State Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision Thursday to once again answer allegations of drug abuse and putting patients at risk.

At the hearing, the state outlined its case.

“I asked him if he had taken the hydrocodone and he admitted that he did. He said he took it for back pain,” investigator Gary Ricks testified. “He said he had an old prescription for lung cancer.”

Gilmore’s been under investigation and supervision by the state board for more than a decade.

He’s been sanctioned at least nine times during that period by the board.

Thursday’s hearing centered on allegations of his abuse of powerful narcotics and reports that he put patients at risk.

Gilmore denied any wrongdoing.

In the end, the state board decided to prevent Gilmore from practicing for a year.

He can apply again after that time for reinstatement.
