This is a photo of Presbyterian Village, in Austell, from August 2016. Authorities accuse Nathan Price of illegally prescribing medication out of this assisted living facility in December 2017.

A Buckhead man is accused of dispensing hundreds of medications at a Cobb County senior home without a license.

Nathan Christopher Price faces four felony charges of unlawfully practicing medicine without a license, according to a warrant filed Friday by the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency.

It isn’t clear if Price, who filed to voluntarily surrender his pharmacist license in October, has been arrested.

The GDNA officer wrote that Price was a “flight risk” because he had posted to Facebook on Dec. 18 that he, according to the warrant, “would be departing for Laos in three weeks. (Price) also made statements to pharmacy staff about plans to start a pharmacy in Laos.”

A worker who answered the phone Wednesday at the GDNA told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the only person allowed to comment on the situation was its director, adding that he was out of the office that day.

The employee wouldn’t say when the director would be back at work.

A spokeswoman with the Cobb County District Attorney’s said their office hadn’t been contacted about the case.

The warrant said the medications were given out at 2000 East-West Connector on Dec. 12 and Dec. 14.

The only business registered to that address is Presbyterian Village in Austell. A human relations employee with the senior home told The AJC on Wednesday that there was no record of Price working there.

When asked for her name, the call was ended. No one else at the senior home was immediately available for comment.

The Georgia State Board of Pharmacy accepted Price’s surrender of his license on Nov. 8. No reason was given.

According to the Georgia Department of Community Health records, Price was issued a pharmacist license in July 2000.
