HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - A Huntsville doctor has surrendered his medical license and certificate to prescribe medicine.

The State Board of Medical Examiners says Dr. Shelinder 'Shaun' Aggarwal surrendered both documents on July 17, 2013. He did so voluntarily and did not admit any guilt.

Dr. Aggarwal was scheduled to go before the board on Wednesday, August 21. In March, the board suspended Dr. Aggarwal's Alabama Controlled Substance Certificate, meaning he could not prescribe medicine. The hearing was set to review the status of his suspended certificate to prescribe medicine in Alabama. That hearing is now cancelled.

State documents show the board investigated the doctor and found probable cause to believe the doctor:

• Excessively dispensing controlled substances to many of his patients
• Dispensing controlled substances in amounts not reasonably related to the proper medical management of his patients’ illnesses or conditions
• Dispensing controlled substances for no legitimate medical purpose.

The signs have been removed from the building where Dr. Aggarwal worked on Turner Street in Huntsville. A sign on the front locked door says to call 256-382-1401 to request your medical records.
