A former Ridgway medical practitioner won't be practicing after the Colorado Medical Board revoked his license on Oct. 11. Loran David Sherwood failed to respond to a summons for the board’s review of his actions over the last year.

The final revocation order was provided by Lee Rasizer at the Department of Regulatory Affairs, which also provided documents detailing how Sherwood wrote more than 900 prescriptions without a license. As a result, Sherwood's medical license was suspended in February and he faced two administrative counts of unprofessional conduct but failed to respond or appear at a hearing requested by the CMB.
