Crow Tribe seeks removal of IHS doctor who has a criminal record


The Crow Tribe of Montana called on the Indian Health Service to remove a doctor with a criminal past.

A. Scott Devous works at the Crow/Northern Cheyenne Hospital on the Crow Reservation. In 1983, he was found guilty on federal drug charges and lost his license twice in Wyoming.

He gained his license in Montana and began working at the IHS facility in 2009 "Dr. Devous is unfit to practice medicine on our people, to supervise other physicians who practice medicine on our people," Crow Chairman Cedric Bladk Eagle said in a letter to the state's congressional delegation, the Associated Press reported.
