Westerly doctor’s registration reinstated


Dr. Lisa Noyes-Duguay, principal physician at Primary Care for Women & Adolescents, is again allowed to prescribe controlled substances as part of her Westerly internal medicine practice with several conditions.

Among those conditions is that she agree “never to prescribe controlled substances to herself or to any family member.”

Meanwhile, Dr. Todd Parilla, serving a five-year federal prison term after being convicted of collecting and distributing more than 100,000 images and 10,000 videos of child pornography, has voluntarily surrendered his Rhode Island license. He similarly gave up his Connecticut license on Sept. 6. His term includes a $10,000 fine and a lifetime term of supervised release after imprisonment. Parilla, a pediatrician since 1995, had a practice in Pawcatuck and privileges at The Westerly Hospital.

The Rhode Island Department of Health Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline issued notices regarding Noyes-Duguay and Parilla on Wednesday.

Noyes-Duguay, a doctor since 1996 and who maintains an office at 85 Beach St., Westerly, had her controlled substances registration suspended last September after an investigation by health authorities into her prescribing practices with family revealed “deficiencies with standards of practice regarding documentation and prescribing to family members.”

Since that time, health officials said Noyes-Duguay has completed or cooperated with corrective action required by the controlled substances registration suspension order.
