HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The state Board of Medical Examiners has revoked the medical license of a Florence physician for practicing medicine while his license was suspended.

Chris Christensen did not request a hearing regarding a September order that suspended his license indefinitely. He was notified of the revocation on Dec. 7.

Christensen’s clinic was raided in April 2014. Soon after, the board suspended his license for prescribing dangerous combinations and quantities of drugs.

He was issued a probationary license in May 2015 that didn’t allow him to treat pain patients and required that another physician supervise him. However, the board found he wrote several prescriptions without seeing patients and without supervision, leading to the latest action.

In August, Christensen was charged with 400 felonies, including two counts of negligent homicide for overdose deaths. He has pleaded not guilty.
