A Needham doctor, whose offices were raided by state and federal officials in May, had his medical license suspended Wednesday, June 20, after state officials deemed his practices a threat to the public.
The order of suspension said the doctor provided poor care to 30 patients, while several patients, who were prescribed drugs such as Oxycodone, Percocet, and methadone, died within days after visits.
The document listed 30 cases of poor care, with patients dying unexpectedly in eight instances. Among the eight deaths, at least five people died within three days after visiting Zolot, who does not live in Needham.
A spokesman for the Board of Registration said he could not elaborate on the contents of the document. The DEA, FBI, Internal Revenue Service, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Massachusetts State Police, Needham Police, Boston Police and Norfolk County Anti-Crime Unit executed a search warrant Thursday, May 17, at Zolot’s office. No charges have been filed.
Zolot was featured in a Needham Times article last month, which described the doctor’s unusual pain relief techniques, such as injections of Sarapin, a pitcher plant extract, and Hyalagan, liquid cartilage from rooster combs.
