A San Francisco area woman is accused of posing as a pharmacist and giving out around 745,000 prescriptions before she was caught, the California Board of Pharmacy said Wednesday.
Kim Thien Le told them she’d attended Creighton University, but records showed that she never graduated. When the Board asked Le for her pharmacist license number, she used the license numbers of two pharmacists with similar names. During questioning, Le told the board, “Me and my son would be very grateful if you could just forget about this.”
According to documents filed by the board, Le handled 745,355 prescriptions in the course of a decade as a pharmacist and pharmacy manager. She worked at Walgreens in San Jose, Milpitas and Fremont. The board is looking at revoking Walgreens’ pharmacy licenses for the stores where she worked. The case remains under investigation.
