Director of shuttered Seattle Pain Centers keeps license after clinics found to have caused or contributed to 16 deaths

Posted Monday, April 16, 2018 by Tyler Goldberg-Hoss

In September of 2016 I wrote about the suspension of Dr. Frank Li, director of a number of Seattle Pain Center clinics in the Puget Sound area.

Dr. Li’s medical license was suspended pending an investigation surrounding deaths associated with patients of his clinics. As a result, a number of opioid dependent patients were suddenly without a medical provider to prescribe them medication. Many scrambled to find other providers willing to do so, often encountering significant difficulty.

Recently, following the investigation conducted by the Washington Medical Commission, an agreement was reached whereby Dr. Li’s license remains suspended for at least another year. Further, once his license is reinstated, his ability to prescribe pain medication will be limited.

You can read a Seattle Times article on the recent agreement here:
