On March 30, 2012, the Medical Board of California placed psychiatrist Criselda Calayan Abad Santos on probation for the three years with numerous terms and conditions.

The Board’s document states that Abad Santos prescribed dangerous drugs such as Adderall, Oxycontin and Pristiq (all controlled substances) to five individuals who were relatives or family friends without conducting the necessary examinations or tests (such as liver or blood sugar tests); failed to obtain informed consent for the prescriptions and failed to monitor or keep medical charts for the patients.
