A state board that polices Missouri physicians has issued an emergency suspension for a Jefferson City doctor.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Dr. Randall E. Meyer is accused of unnecessarily placing stents in six patients' arteries. He can argue for reinstatement at a Feb. 4 administrative hearing. Meyer filed documents in the case denying that he provided substandard care.
