Doesn't matter. Was the MD's DEA # on the prescription pad? There's also a chance that the Doctor immediately discovered the prescirption pad was missing and notified the area pharmacies not to fill scripts for narcotics without notifying his/her office. Also, most pharmacies have security cameras, so your picture may have been recorded when you were there.

Ritalin is a Class II narcotic which requires that specific records are kept about precriptions filled and stock kept at the pharmacies. It's very easy to track.
We no longer keep prescription pads in exam rooms for this very reason. Only need to get burned once by a narc seeker.
Also, don't be surprised when the Pediatrician exits you and your children as patients from his/her office.
Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple...
