A Marshalltown foot doctor has closed his two clinics and surrendered his podiatry license.
Dr. Timothy Smith was accused of accepting a portion of his patients’ prescribed pain medication to cover their co-payments for treatment at his clinics. On August 11, Smith had to be resuscitated at a Marshalltown hospital after an overdose of Oxycodone. On August 21, state officials declared Smith an “immediate danger to the public” and suspended his license.
His clinics in Newton and Marshalltown have closed. In an agreement with the Iowa Board of Podiatry, Smith denied the charges, but waived his right to a hearing and agreed to give up his license.
