CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Northern Panhandle pain doctor is suing two state government agencies after he was stripped of his medical license and his clinic was closed.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/22DI2Up ) reports that Dr. Roland Chalifoux is suing the West Virginia Bureau for Public Health and a medical board. The suit states their actions forced him into debt and damaged his reputation.

The civil action filed in Marshall County Circuit Court seeks lost wages and damages.

In his lawsuit, Chalifoux said the Bureau for Public Health falsely accused him of reusing syringes after one of his patients contracted bacterial meningitis.

His medical license was suspended in July 2014, but a circuit judge reinstated it.

A spokesman for the Bureau for Public Health said the agency does not comment specifically on pending court cases.
