MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A south Miami-Dade doctor is behind bars charged with three counts of trafficking in oxycodone and running an unlicensed pain management clinic.

According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, their investigation into Dr. Mark Sachs began last June. Over the next several months, investigators found that Sachs was allegedly selling and dispensing prescriptions to individuals who did not have a medical need. The FDLE said Dr. Sachs was representing himself as being an infectious disease doctor; however, the investigation found Dr. Sachs was only treating pain patients.

On Monday, FDLE agents executed a search warrant at Dr. Sachs home in Palmetto Bay and at his medical office on North Kendall Drive and seized his patients records.

The Florida Department of Health has issued an emergency suspension of Dr. Sach’s medical license.
