Nevada State board reprimands doctor Who Used Compound Purchased on Internet from Canadian Pharmacy Not Licensed in State

In another settlement, the board said Dr. Samuel Beck advertised Botox injections, mostly sought by women at his Allure Med Spa in Reno. In reality he was injecting a compound called "Dysport" purchased on the Internet and a Canadian pharmacy not licensed in Nevada.
The board dismissed the counts in the complaint that accused Beck of false advertising by having a large sign on the front window of his business saying Botox injections were available and brochures in his office touting Botox.
But he was penalized for using a drug from unlicensed sources in Canada. In addition to the public reprimand, he was ordered to attend 12 hours of classes on medical ethics and reimburse the board $1,337 for the cost of its investigation.
