Notes of Decisions

Notice, stating that physician had "consistently prescribed dangerous drugs to patients in amounts and in a manner which is inappropriate to the treatment of such patients and is not medically indicated," constituted sufficient notice of nature of proceedings against him, notwithstanding that notice failed to provide reference to particular sections of statutes and rules involved. Bennett v. Board of Medical Examiners, 31 Or App 467, 570 P2d 986 (1977), Sup Ct review denied

Under this section, physician and attorney should be afforded opportunity to appeal and be heard at hearing on license revocation. Stalder v. Bd. of Medical Examiners, 37 Or App 853, 588 P2d 659 (1978)
