A former Overland Park psychiatrist continues to practice in Missouri after being suspended in Kansas and facing an investigation by the state medical board.
The Kansas Board of Healing Arts suspended Brian Patrick Lahey’s license in July because of drug use, while it was also looking into allegations that he had sex with patients and improperly prescribed opioids and other controlled substances.
The reasons for the suspension were redacted in the board’s public documents. But un-redacted documents provided to The Star this month show that the board suspended him for testing positive for marijuana and amphetamines during drug screenings he had to take because he violated a protection order granted to his ex-wife. The documents also show that in June the board launched an investigation into the allegations of sexual impropriety and dangerous prescribing.
Lahey, 42, denied those allegations in written responses he filed as part of the investigation.
