Doctor Agrees to Surrender License
The lawsuit against James Hueser was filed by the US Attorney's office, which said the settlement does not admit liability but lets Hueser avoid more litigation. Prosecutors said Hueser ordered unnecessary or unreasonable cancer treatment and medical services, and reused chemotherapy drugs that were supposed to be used only once. Hueser practices mainly at Boone Clinic in Columbia and Bothwell Regional Health Center in Sedalia. He also has privileges in several mid-Missouri hospitals and provides oncology service at clinics in Hermann, Hannibal and Kirksville. Hueser has until December 31 to surrender his medical license and pay the fine.
