The Florida Department of Health is trying to take away the medical license of a Fort Myers doctor who was sentenced to over two years in prison for handing out drugs to patients without physical examinations.

The Department of Health filed an administrative complaint against Cecilio Pizarro for giving out prescriptions for Xanax, methadone, Oxycontin, Dilaudid and Valium.

In some cases, Pizarro allegedly agreed to administer the drugs in exchange for sexual intercourse.

According to the complaint, Pizarro also prescribed pain killers to a detective with the Fort Myers Police Department in exchange for sexual intercourse.

Pizarro was indicted by a grand jury March 14 for two counts of knowingly and willfully distributing controlled substances. Pizarro pled guilty to both counts and was sentenced to 27 months in prison Sept. 25.
