The West Alabama Narcotics Task Force says a doctor in Northport has surrendered his license to practice podiatry.

Task force agents say they have been investigating Dr. David Robinson of Tuscaloosa Foot Care, P.C. after received multiple complaints against him. The pharmacies stated that Robinson had been writing prescriptions outside the scope of his practice, including Adderall and Lortab prescriptions.

Robinson surrendered his license on Feb. 14. According to agents, Robinson made a voluntary surrender statement that included:

"I acknowledge that I have committed violations of the Alabama Podiatry Practice Act that likely will result in disciplinary action against my license, including revocation of my license."

One pharmacy showed FOX6 News a letter reportedly sent by the task force Thursday saying that Robinson's prescriptions were no longer valid.

Friday, patients were greeted by an "office closed" sign on the front door.

The criminal investigation will continue, despite Robinson surrendering his license. Fourteen people have been identified as participants in receiving and filling prescriptions and multiple arrests are expected. Investigators are expected to present the charges to a grand jury in coming months.

Robinson's attorney has not yet returned FOX6's calls for a comment.
