'Death Doctor' Arrested After 36 of His Patients Die

Dr. Narendra Nagareddy was arrested after being suspected of inappropriately prescribing medications to patients. Around 36 of his patients have died.

Nearly 40 agents from the DEA, the Clayton County District Attorney’s office, the Clayton County Police Department, and the Georgia Department of Community Supervision raided his office before they moved on to his home.

Clayton County Police Chief Mike Register said: “He’s a psychiatrist in Jonesboro who has been over prescribing opiates and benzodiazepine and the last several years has had a multitude of overdoses and overdose deaths."

In addition, legal documents state that 36 patients died “while being prescribed controlled substances from Dr. Nagareddy, 12 of which have been confirmed by investigators through autopsy reports to have been the result of prescription drug intoxication.

Former and current patients have admitted to obtaining controlled substance prescriptions from Dr. Nagareddy without having a legitimate medical need." The Register said “If the allegations are true, he is Dr. Death, no doubt about it.”

Some reviews of the psychiatrist read “This guy is nothing but a legal drug pusher…He has the tendency to prescribe the older psychotropic drugs which require weekly blood test…He seems to believe that prescribing MULTIPLE sedatives, several times per day is the answer for anxiety. He will trash you with DRUGS. It would be in your best interest to stay away from this QUACK."

Another review, on Rate MD, says “…If you want drugs, this is your guy, if you want help keep looking or you'll end up in rehab."

Nagareddy is charged with prescribing pain medication which is outside his profession as a psychiatrist and not for a legitimate purpose for the patient.
