Fargo doctor who lost ND license, reprimanded by MN medical board

A Fargo physician who lost his North Dakota license last year has been reprimanded by the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice.

The board also placed several restrictions on the license of Dr. Rodney Lee, owner and operator of the former Rapid-Care clinics.

Lee's North Dakota license was revoked in August 2008 by the state's Board of Medical Examiners. He had previously agreed to stop practicing medicine in Minnesota until an investigation there was completed.

The Minnesota board's action was based on the disciplinary action against his license in North Dakota; unethical and unprofessional conduct; failure to supervise a physician's assistant; improper management of medical records; and prescribing a drug for other than medically accepted therapeutic purposes, according a news release from the board.

The Minnesota board on Saturday ordered that Lee is not allowed to prescribe controlled substances or supervise allied health professionals, and any practice he proposes must receive board approval.

Lee may petition for reinstatement of an unconditional license if he completes an individualized educational plan.
