I don't think that doctor shopping is against the law, but I would obviously not prescibe for someone who I suspect is diverting their meds.
You can/should get a patient to sign a release for records from previous MD's.
Some insurance programs, and state medicaid programs have a way to pick up when someone is getting duplicate or conflicting meds from multiple doctors. I have had pharmacists call me when they suspect a problem.
