In Saxton's 2014 discipline DOPL
noted that “he has again failed to follow the Federation of State Medical Board's Model Policy for the Use of Controlled Substances for the Treatment of Pain in his treatment of some of his patients,” according to the discipline notice. Saxton's license to prescribe and administer controlled substances was suspended for three years.
Another doctor was disciplined recently by DOPL. Salt Lake City Doctor Steven-Ralph Angerbauer received a public reprimand based on the fact that he is also being monitored by the Washington Medical Quality Assurance Commission.
