A Long Island man who died from an overdose of oxycodone reportedly fed his addiction with prescriptions from more than a dozen doctors.

Published reports say that three of the physicians who treated Christopher Basmas, of Hicksville, are now charged in drug-trafficking probes.

Dr. William Conway has closed his Baldwin office.

Meanwhile, doctors Eric Jacobson and Stan Li have also been questioned over the prescriptions they wrote for the Medford pharmacy massacre shooter David Laffer and his wife, Melinda Brady.
