The Medical Board of California’s Prescription Drug Strike Force arrested Dr. Duke D. Fisher at his San Jose office for allegedly prescribing controlled substances without a legitimate purpose.

The probable cause arrest came after the Board received a complaint alleging that Dr. Fisher would prescribe any medication the customer requested in exchange for cash. Multiple undercover operations were conducted. It was found that Dr. Fisher prescribed controlled substances without a legitimate medical purpose and prescribed controlled substances to a customer who admitted to using heroin and methamphetamines.

Fisher was charged with violations of Health and Safety Code sections 11153, prescribing without a legitimate medical purpose, and 11156, prescribing to an addict; and Business and Professions Code section 725, excessive prescribing of drugs.

Fisher has two offices, one in San Jose and one in Monterey, California. His bail is set at $64,000.
