A drug-plagued La Jolla psychiatrist specializing in sleep disorders has agreed to permanently surrender his license to practice medicine in California, according to a stipulation with the state’s medical board. On November 5, 2014, the board alleged that Bradley John Schnierow was an addict who had written 48 controlled-drug prescriptions for a girlfriend in a year’s time.

In March 2013, Schnierow had resigned from the staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital and could no longer practice medicine there. Instead, he “would ‘sneak in to the Scripps’ property in an attempt to see patients in the lobby,” according to another board allegation. In addition, a former landlord said crack pipes had been found in the physician’s office, and DEA agents discovered pot, a bong, and “15 glass pipes with methamphetamine residue and a myriad of other pills, substances, and injectables,” according to a TV report.

In July 2014, only a month after Schnierow had agreed not to practice medicine, he dressed in scrubs and twice convinced a hospital emergency-room doctor to prescribe oxycodone pills for what he said was a scratched eye. Schnierow was also accused of having an improper sexual relationship with a female patient.

In January of last year, Schnierow copped a felony narcotics plea in state San Diego Superior Court and agreed to enter rehab, telling KNSD-TV, “I hope one day to have the privilege of treating patients” again. But according to his latest agreement with the medical board, effective February 23 of this year, he has now lost “all rights and privileges as a Physician and Surgeon in California.”


The San Diego Police Department is looking for a few good prospective officers at Arizona State University in Phoenix. Written tests and preliminary investigations there are set for April 9, according to a campus flier.
