A Valley doctor who had been a family practitioner for 46 years is no longer able to practice medicine.

The Arizona Medical Board voted Wednesday to revoke the medical license of Robert C. Teague, 79, for violating a board order of practice limitations.

In May, Teague had violated the medical board’s order of prescribing Oxycontin for a patient when he was not permitted to prescribe controlled substances, according to Roger Downey, spokesman for the Arizona Medical Board.

Teague, who graduated from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston in 1955, had been practicing medicine in Arizona since 1963, according to Arizona Medical Board records.

In 1996, the board placed Teague on a 10-year probation for violating an order not to prescribe controlled substances, which was lifted in 2000. He also was reprimanded in 2007 for not keeping complete records on a patient, Downey said.
