Re: Dr Fenton
The final order by the State Board of Medical Examiners said the prescriptions were made on several occasions between 1997 and 1999. According to the order, the incidents came to light in an investigation after Fenton told the Drug Enforcement Administration that a former employee was fraudulently attempting to fill prescriptions.
According to the board's order, Fenton:
Prescribed Claritin to herself and her husband. At the time, it was a prescription drug; now it is sold over the counter.
Prescribed Lorazepam and Vicodin for an employee suffering chronic headaches and anxiety.
Provided four Xanax tablets to an employee for anxiety over an airline flight.
Took three Xanax tablets during her mother's terminal illness.
Prescribed Ambien to her husband for insomnia.
Did not maintain medical charts for the prescriptions.

BETA = Behavioral Evaluation & Threat AssessmentSources say Dr. Lynne Fenton, who treated Holmes this spring, contacted several members of the BETA team in separate conversations. According to the university website, the BETA team consists of "key" staff members from various CU departments who have specific expertise in dealing with assessing potential threats on campus. And, sources say, officials at the University of Colorado never contacted Aurora police with Fentonís concerns before the July 20 killings.
I thought I'd read somewhere that JH began treatment a lot earlier that spring. Does anyone else recall that? If you do, please post what you remember. MOO

From the link in my previous post:
ABC News learned Fenton was a key member in setting up BETA in 2010, and she is currently one of the contacts for anyone who has concerns about an on-campus threat. A University of Colorado spokeswoman acknowledged that Fenton is one of several trained CU contacts who can convene the team in consultation with the chairman.
It appears Dr. Fenton has my kind of luck ... day late, dollar short. JMO

remember if you want to discuss her treatment of Holmes it should be done in the Psych thread.
This is for her background information and about her specifically.

Dr. Lynne Fenton's Bio that was Deleted from U of Colorado
The psychiatrist who was treating Aurora massacre suspect James Holmes is Dr. Lynne Fenton. Her bio has been deleted from the University of Colorado where she worked.
Some quick thinkers grabbed the Google cache, so that we can all see what Fenton/U of C might want to hide:
Lynne Fenton, MD
ETA: And now here is the real page, I just dunno' what's going on:

Seems like they're really getting paranoid over at UC Anshutz Medical Center!
Covering up and hiding everything that was visible days ago. Makes 'em look like they've got a lot to hide, to these eyes! Ooops!

Looks like someone is editing her Colorado License info...
Now the 2004 case was removed - although this is a lesser charge and ended up with no disciplinary action. This was her case on prescribing medications and not following up with the chart.
The June 19, 2012 stayed - and this is what i am curious about
