Dope or duped? Ketamine doctor 'didn’t realise the risk’

He is believed to be the only one reprimanded for his work with Aura Medical Corporation

Dr Leimin Chen’s future hangs in the balance. He was one of the doctors recruited by Aura Medical Corporation to prescribe experimental ketamine injections to patients with severe treatment-resistant depression. Patients paid as much as $3000 for the therapy. Dr Chen was found guilty of professional misconduct this year. As he awaits sanctions, he says he is a scapegoat and believes he is a good, caring doctor.
