Dr. Jay Kuris of Flemington, New Jersey voluntarily surrendered his Drug Enforcement Agency registration after officials say he engaged in indiscriminate prescribing.
Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony Kearns reports Dr. Kuris originally had his prescribing privileges suspended in August 2017. Weeks later, the New Jersey State Medical Board agreed to continue the suspension of his prescribing ability based on facts obtained through an investigation.
Kuris was also prohibited from directing other healthcare professionals to prescribe substances to any of his patients.
On Jan. 12, Kuris surrendered his DEA registration to officials, which means he surrendered his rights to prescribe controlled substances.
He cannot do so again until he meets all administrative responsibilities as dictated by the State Board of Medical Examiners and Drug Enforcement Agency, Prosecutor Kearns said.
