A Hallock doctor has been reprimanded by the state Board of Medical Practice for inappropriately prescribing pain medication, the board said.

Dr. Thomas A. Lohstreter was also disciplined for unethical and unprofessional conduct and improper management of medical records.

As part of the reprimand, he must pay a $2,000 fine, study policies for prescribing pain medication and take classes that, among other things, raise awareness of chemical dependency.
