Supposedly, Matfus asked what kind of medication the deputy wanted to take. Then the doctor informed the undercover officer that fee was $200 for two prescriptions. Matfus is alleged to have even written another script for a made up friend of the deputy.
As the undercover deputy pretending to be a patient and Matfus exchanged cash, the take down signal was given and deputies came in and arrested the doctor. As if he wasn’t already in enough trouble, Matfus supposedly waived his right to remain silent and revealed that for about two or three months he had been living at the motel and was selling prescriptions. Apparently, Matfus had been down on his luck and recently lost his medical practice, however, his license to practice medicine was still valid at the time of arrest.
Matfus was charged with unlawful prescription of a controlled substance and trafficking in oxycodone. He posted his $10.000.00 and is no longer being held at the Palm Beach County Jail.
