TULSA, OK -- A doctor is charged in Tulsa County District Court, accused of drug diversion after a multi-agency undercover operation found he dispensed medications without medical need.

In a news release, Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson says Dr. George J. Blake was charged with one count of distributing a controlled and dangerous substance.

Edmondson says the state alleges Blake prescribed unnecessary medications "not in good faith and outside the course of professional practice." 

According to the state's complaint, Blake prescribed controlled substances to undercover agents during numerous office visits without conducting any type of physical examination or requesting any patient records.

During one office visit, an undercover agent asked Blake for Xanax and Adderall. When Blake asked if the agent had ADHD the agent replied, "Sure, whatever that is."

Blake wrote the agent prescriptions for both drugs.
