An Altoona area Pediatrician turned herself into Blair County Court this morning on drug charges. She's accused of writing illegal prescriptions. The Criminal Complaint says Dr. Rebecca DelBaggio wrote illegal prescriptions for her boyfriend who was not her patient. She was a pediatrician at UPMC Children's Community Pediatrics in Hollidaysburg but UPMC say she's been fired as of Tuesday. The Attorney General's office say in the complaint DelBaggio wrote scrips for Xanax and Oxycodone between 2016 and 2017. Officers told the judge as she was arraigned "this is where the opioid crisis starts." Her bail was set at $50,000 unsecured with the condition that she is not allowed to return to her former place of work.
