SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Dr. Allan Hassan has practiced medicine for more than 40 years, but now the Sacramento doctor’s license has been modified by the state medical board.

Hassan’s medical license was modified by the Medical Board of California Friday, and he was placed on probation for five years. He is also prohibited from supervising physician assistants.

The medical board ruled Hassan is not allowed to order, prescribe certain drugs until he passes a clinical training program.

Hassan spoke to CBS13 in January of 2014 and said he believed he was being targeted by the medical board. At the time, the medical board was asking to suspend or take away the doctor’s license after he allegedly over-prescribed medication to four patients. This includes giving painkillers to a patient he “was aware was on heroin.”

When questioned about why Hassan had given them the drugs, he claimed “he had such poor records on this patient because his computer had been stolen.”

Hassan said the board discriminated against him because of his compassion for the poor and his name.

“They have me born in Baghdad. They have me the half brother of Saddam Hussein,” he said.

The doctor gave us a document he says shows he’s flagged as Sabawi Ibrahim al-Hassan — the real half-brother of Hussein.
