TAMPA — A co-owner of the Neurology & Pain Center clinics in Central Florida pleaded guilty this week to charges of trafficking oxycodone.
Troy Wubbena, 44, of Tampa, now faces up to 20 years in federal prison. Authorities say he got blank prescription forms pre-signed by his supervising physician. He filled them out and found people to act as patients and fill the prescriptions for him, according to a plea agreement.
Wubbena and the physician, Dr. Jeffrey Friedlander, were accused in a second indictment of conspiring to illegally prescribe oxycodone and conspiring to defraud Medicare. Friedlander recently pleaded guilty in that case.
