Three Upper East Tennessee doctors have had their licenses put on probation, said the Tennessee Department of Health.

One, psychiatrist Dr. Dan Nicolau of Johnson City, prescribed narcotics to a woman “not pursuant to a doctor-patient relationship” and entered her home uninvited, according to state records…

Nicolau will pay $2,000 in civil penalties, in addition to the costs of prosecuting his case, and will be on probation for two years, starting this month.
