Wyoming Board Of Medicine Suspends Cody Doctor

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Board of Medicine has suspended temporarily the license of a Cody doctor, alleging that he falsely certified a patient needed emergency surgery.

The board took the action Saturday against Dr. John H. Schneider, a neurosurgeon with practices in Cody and Billings, Mont.

Attempts to reach Schneider for comment were unsuccessful Tuesday. A Cody lawyer who represents him in other matters declined comment.

The board alleges Schneider performed back surgery on an unnamed Montana man in November at West Park Hospital in Cody. The order alleges the patient provided Schneider with medical records from Montana doctors beforehand and that his surgery wasn’t an emergency.

The board says the patient died at his Montana home after he left the hospital. An autopsy determined he overdosed on prescription pain medication.
