In Oklahoma City a physician suspected of being responsible for the deaths of nine people now sits in Oklahoma County Jail without bail.

Doctor William Valuck, age 71, was arrested while in Texas when authorities ran his name though the computer and discovered he was wanted in Oklahoma on felony warrants for nine homicides and more than 50 counts of illegal distribution of narcotics.

According to the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, detectives have been investigating Valuck for more than a year because of the string of patient overdoses.

The agency reports that Valuck, a pain management specialist, has demonstrated a history of prescribing excessive volumes of narcotics without any medical examinations at all. In fact, the records show he likely doled out nearly 800 doses PER DAY, for years.

Ohio Court of Appeals: Doctor’s Life Sentence ‘Will Not be Overturned’

Doctor Paul H Volkman

Doctor Paul H Volkman

A Cincinnati-area physician whose pain clinics were discovered to be fronts for widespread drug-dealing was told by the Sixth Circuit Court  of Appeals last week that his sentence to life in federal prison would not be overturned.

Doctor Paul H. Volkman, originally from Chicago, was found guilty in 2012 of 17 felony charges, most of which related to criminal narcotic distribution. At least four people are known to have died as a result of taking drugs that Volkman has “prescribed,” but investigators believe as many as 14 other deaths are also linked to the physician’s “pill mill” activity.

Dr Robert Ignasiak

Dr Robert Ignasiak alive & well

A Walton County physician who faked his own death while awaiting trial has been found and captured in the city of Coral Springs.

Doctor Robert Ignasiak, age 58, was taken into custody earlier this week by the Coral Springs Police Department, on a federal warrant for pre-trial release violation.

Ignasiak was found guilty in November, 2009, of 43 counts of narcotic distribution. He is believed responsible for at least two patient deaths.

He was sentenced to 24 years in federal prison, but the case was overturned on a technicality in May, 2012, and he was released.

Before his second trial began, the wayward doctor faked his own death and took off. He was reported missing to the Walton County Sheriff’s last November. Blood stains and a suicide note were found in his car.

Ignasiak is currently in the Broward County Jail awaiting extradition.

Medical Maniac Who Drugged Michael Jackson Could Be Released in Two Months

CONRAD MURRAY CT

Murray in L.A. courtroom

Doctor Conrad Murray, now in jail for the Involuntary Manslaughter of Michael Jackson, could be free to walk the streets yet again as soon as late October.

You recall mad-man Murray, we’re sure. He is the one found guilty in November 2011 of administering lethal doses of the surgical drug Propofol to Jackson, in an outrageous collaboration between doctor and patient to help Jackson sleep.

The L.A. District Attorney’s prosecutors proved at trial that Murray caused the death of Jackson by enabling Jackson’s ongoing drug habit and grossly abusing his position as a physician. Court records show Murray was ordering Propofol by the gallon.

Murray was originally sentenced to a 4-year state prison term in California, but due to overcrowding, has served his time in county jail. He is expected to be released early based on California’s overcrowded jail system as well as his “good behavior” status.

Here’s a bit more on this poster child for doctor drug-running:

West Hollywood MD Goes Down in Drug-dealing Case

Posted in Doctor Drug-Pushers on August 13, 2013 by PatricParamedic
Dr James W Eisenberg

Dr James W Eisenberg

A Los Angeles physician who scribbled out more than 1,000 illegal narcotic prescriptions has changed his “Not Guilty” plea to “Guilty.

Doctor James William Eisenberg, age 72,  admitted to a single count of narcotic distribution.

Federal investigators discovered that Eisenberg had routinely written hundreds of prescriptions for no reason other to gain wealth. He sold the drugs out of so-called clinics, such as Pacific Support Services in West Hollywood. He also issued “medical marijuana” recommendations, according to Drug Enforcement reports.

As far back as December 2011, Eisenberg was referred to by a federal judge as a “drug dealer” and had his prescription registration permit suspended. It was permanently revoked in July 2012.

Eisenberg, who lives in Venice, was named in a Drug Enforcement Administration indictment in May, charging him with four counts of using a revoked registration number and three counts of distribution of hydrocodone.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Benjamin Barron, Eisenberg faces up a 30-month prison term at sentencing hearing in December.

Long Island Physician Confesses to Doling Out Lethal Prescriptions for Profit

Posted in Doctor Drug-Pushers on August 5, 2013 by PatricParamedic

In the town of Baldwin a doctor admitted in court last week that – contrary to what he had been saying for two years – he did indeed prescribe narcotics to addicts.

Dr William Conway

Dr William Conway

And two of them -  Christopher Basmas and Giovanni Manzella, died in 2011 within days after taking their oxycodone prescriptions.

Dr. William Conway changed his “not guilty” plea to “guilty” of Conspiracy and Narcotic Distribution.

Conway, age 70, was arrested last year as part of a widespread DEA probe of Long Island physicians pushing addictive drugs to amass wealth.

DEA agents discovered that Conway had issued more than 5,000 oxycodone prescriptions - more than 780,000 tablets - to hundreds of people with no medical need, in less than 3 years. There was very little in the way of medical records to indicate he even performed the mandated exams prior to their prescriptions.

Americans are drugging themselves into 250+ deaths everyday. And an astounding number of drug dealers are MDs

According to a Federal press release the doctor’s office manager, Robert Hachemeister, had already admitted guilt for his part in the drug pushing scheme earlier this year. Prosecutors told the court that Hachemeister, who had no formal medical education, was responsible for distributing thousands of doses of narcotics by issuing prescriptions already -signed by Conway.

Conway could get 20 years in federal prison by Judge Leonard Wexler at his sentencing hearing.

ER Doc Was His Girlfriend’s Drug-dealer – Now He’s in Jail

Posted in Doctor Drug-Pushers on July 27, 2013 by PatricParamedic

In upstate New York a Niagara County physician has admitted in court that he prescribed narcotics out of the emergency room by fraud.

Dr Daniel Gillick

 

Doctor Daniel C. Gillick, age 63, concocted a drug-dealing plan that involved his girlfriend coming to the emergency room pretending to be a patient suffering from a condition known as trigeminal neuralgia.

Gillick would then perform a fake exam, fraudulently diagnose the ‘patient’ as suffering from trigeminal neuralgia and generate a prescription for Dilauded, a narcotic.

Gillick’s girlfriend, Christina Guilfoyle, age 27, had no medical need for the controlled substance.

Gillick, who admitted defrauding Schuyler Hospital as well as providing his girlfriend  narcotics by fraud, was arrested with Guilfoyle in November 2012 following a Drug Enforcement Administration investigation. At the time, investigators discovered cocaine in Guilfoyle’s car, which she said she bought for Gillick.

Gillick, employed by Delphi Emergency Physicians Services, could get 10 years in prison.

What Exactly is a ‘Third World Assassin?’ Well, Here’s One More . . .

Poster child for ‘Third World Assassins’

In Eastern Tennessee an Indian physician and his wife have been arrested on a federal warrant because investigators discovered the pair routinely bought foreign, unapproved drugs and then administered them to unknowing cancer patients at their clinic.

Prosecutors state that Doctor Anindya Kumar Sen, age 64, and his wife, Patricia Posey Sen, who live in Greeneville, bought in excess of $3,000,000 in illegal pharmaceuticals.

Patricia Posey Sen functioned as the office manager

Patricia Posey Sen functioned as the office manager

The indictment alleges the Sens, through their business, the East Tennessee Cancer & Blood Center, dealt in misbranded drugs, illegally imported drugs and conspiracy.

The U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of Tennessee revealed that illegal billings were submitted to Medicare, TennCare and other health payors, claiming that all drugs being administered to cancer patients were approved by the Federal Drug Administration, when exactly the opposite was true.

The trial for the couple is scheduled to begin in early September.

Here’s more: http://www.justice.gov/usao/tne/news/2013/June/062713%20Sen%20Indictment%20Misbranded%20Drugs.html

Observation:

This Indian-born physician emigrated to the U.S. after graduating from Maulana Azad Medical College, at Delhi University in 1972. As so many thousands of other foreign doctors, Sen quickly learned that U.S. physician oversight is laughably weak. Had the doctor and his wife not gotten so greedy, they might never have been caught. Regardless that this physician put many patients at risk in order to enlarge his personal wealth, you can rest assured that he will receive the bare minimum punishment, and he will assuredly NEVER be deported.

The U.S. does not deport criminal doctors. We spank their wrists; quietly relicense them; allow them to treat patients again, and hide their crimes from the public.

UN-speakable.

Indiana MD in Prison on ‘Sex for Drugs’ Case Wants Out of Jail

Posted in Doctor Drug-Pushers on June 24, 2013 by PatricParamedic
Dr Ray Howell

Dr Ray Howell

Doctor Ray D. Howell, who has been in prison since last year when he was found guilty of trading narcotics for sexual favors, is asking that his sentence be commuted.

Howell, age 58, of Roachdale, was sentenced in June 2012 to a four-year term in the Indiana Department of Corrections by Putnam Circuit Court Judge Matthew Headley.

But now Howell’s attorney, Jay Clifford, is petitioning for a sentence reduction, arguing that the doctor suffers from dementia and that his condition is getting worse. Clifford reports that since Howell’s sentencing, his condition “has deteriorated significantly.”

Howell was taken into custody in October 2011 following a two-year investigation that proved the doctor was over-prescribing narcotics in exchange for sexual trysts with a number of female patients. According to the prosecution, these encounters routinely took place at the clinic run by Howell called the Tri-County Family Medical Clinic in Roachdale. In the year 2009 for example, records show Howell wrote more than 11,000 sham prescriptions for narcotics.

Why do some men become doctors?

At his sentencing, Judge Headley told the errant physician this:

“You caused drug addictions to people. One of your victims was a pregnant patient who ended up delivering a drug-addicted baby.”
