"He doesn't care about his patients’ well-being,” said Natasha Marrs, the daughter of one of Doctor Christopher Moses’s patients. “He cared about the money that came through those doors."

Marrs says her father died from a painkiller overdose after getting prescriptions from Dr. Moses.

Monday, News On 6 informed you the DEA served a federal search warrant at the doctor's South Tulsa office.

Since Monday, at least a half a dozen people have said they are concerned because they had a loved one die from a painkiller overdose and say they were prescribed by Dr. Moses.

Marrs and her sister Ashley say their father, Russell Stephenson Sr., died from a drug overdose in 2006 after becoming addicted to painkillers following a back injury.

They say their mother repeatedly called Dr. Moses to try to stop him from providing more pills.

Her sister, Ashley Tillman, added, "We flushed pills all the time, and all the bottles were from Dr. Moses."

They say their dad was a great man until he his addiction turned their lives into a nightmare. Then, when Natasha was 18, she found her father dead on the living room couch.

"I walked over there and he was cold,” Marrs recalled. “He had to be there for a while."
