Miami County pain doctor’s medical license suspended

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Indiana has suspended the medical license of a pain doctor facing six drug-dealing charges for allegedly trading pills for sex with a patient.

The Indiana Medical Licensing Board approved an agreement Thursday between Dr. Tristan Stonger and the Attorney General’s Office immediately suspending his license to practice over allegations of unsafe prescribing practices and inappropriate sexual relationships with patients.

The 68-year-old Stonger formerly operated out of clinics called Pain Management Centers of Indiana located in Bloomington, Indianapolis and Peru.

His attorney, Thomas Farlow, said Stonger is concerned about his patients and wants to get out of jail so he can work on moving his patients and their files to new doctors. Farlow has filed a motion seeking to have Farlow’s bond reduced from $100,000 cash or $500,000 surety bond.
