Fort Wayne Doctor Arrested On Felony Charges

A Fort Wayne pain doctor, whose medical license was suspended last year, was arrested in Delaware County Tuesday afternoon by federal agents. Now, felony charges have been filed against Dr. William Hedrick and Gay Gundersen-Watson, a nurse practitioner employed by Dr. Hedrick.  In October 2014, Hedrick's medical license was suspended by a state panel amid allegations of over-prescribing pain medications. His pain clinics in nine northeastern Indiana cities were closed. A total of eight felony counts were filed against Hedrick and six were filed against Watson.
