The owner of an Eagle River medical clinic has been arrested on federal narcotics charges.

According to a press release by U.S. District Attorney Bryan Schroder, nurse practitioner Jessica Joyce Spayd, 48, of Anchorage allegedly distributed “large amounts of opiods and other powerful narcotics by writing prescriptions for ‘patients’ without medical examinations and lacking medical necessity.”

Spayd owns the Eagle River Wellness clinic in Eagle River. She was one of two people arrested in unrelated cases, Schroder wrote. Also arrested was Soldotna doctor Lavern R. Davidhizar, 74.

According to the criminal complaint, drugs — including oxycodone, methadone and hydromorphone — prescribed by Spayd led to the death of at least two people.

I would question the operation of any “pain clinic” that is run by Just two clinicians. Despite their Stated mission, if they don’t have an array of pain management options to include physical therapy, paint board certified clinicians, etc in house, then they are basically a pill mill. Disgraceful.
