Alabama Doctor Guilty of Murder

Posted in Med Nuts in the News on August 17, 2013 by PatricParamedic

In the state capital of Montgomery a circuit court jury needed less than two hours today to find a doctor guilty of Murder in a case that happened two years ago.

Dr Zev-David Nash, Serena English, Jeremy Riley Murder plot

Dr David Nash, Serena English, Jeremy Riley Murder-for-hire plot

Doctor Zev-David Nash, age 54, was convicted of Capital Murder for-hire in a trial presided over by Judge Charles Price. During the trial the prosecution was able to prove that Nash, along with his girlfriend Serena English, had paid drug pusher Jeremy and a cousin the sum of $9,000 to kill a man named Ralph McNeil.

Investigators learned that Serena English was in middle of contentious child custody dispute with McNeil. His body was discovered outside of his trailer in January, 2011. He had been shot and stabbed multiple times.

This isn’t the first time Nash had gotten into deep trouble. In 2005 the Alabama State Medical Board revoked his medical license after learning that he had been administering fake flu shots to his patients.  The Board found the doctor was substituting a worthless saline solution for flu vaccine. His antics were exposed during a sting operation.

English and Jeremy Riley had already pleaded guilty, and English testified as a key witness in Nash’s trial.

Here’s a bit more on this medical maniac:

How many 'bad doctors' did you hear about during the Healthcare Reform debates?  Zero

How many ‘bad doctors’ did you hear about during the Healthcare Reform debates? Zero

Our Observations:

Nincompoop Nash is an excellent example of what we in healthcare call Lab Coat Lunatics.

He graduated from Albert Einstein College Of Medicine of Yeshiva University in 1987 with a specialty in internal medicine. At some point in his young career he realized – as so many thousands of other new physicians do – that the quickest path to wealth is plundering the system and thumbing your nose at ethical patient care. In a sane healthcare system, this man would have been locked up 8 years ago.

London MD Gets Slapped by the Court Because of He Liked to Slap Patients’ Bottoms

Posted in Med Nuts in the News, Third-World Assassins on August 14, 2013 by PatricParamedic

In England, a physician who was allowed to continue treating patients even after being found guilty of two patient sexual assaults, has finally had his medical license revoked.

After a trial last week at Basildon Crown Court, Doctor Rajinder Aggarwal, age 58, was convicted of slapping two women on the bottoms during medical examinations and interrogating them repeatedly about their sex lives.

Aggarwal was believed to have actually attacked four women during a two-month period beginning in December 2006. At that time he was employed by East London’s Homerton Hospital as well as Bluebell Surgery Center n South Ockendon. He was found not guilty of two of the charges.

In 2009, Aggarwal was ordered to perform nine months of community service, of which 80 hours would be without pay.

But he has now been removed from the British physician register by the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Manchester, having been found guilty of inappropriate behavior towards women.

Panel chairman Doctor Malcolm Phillips said this:

“Central to our decision was the seriousness of Doctor Aggarwal’s misconduct, and the repetitive nature of his behavior towards female patients.  This behavior is incompatible with his continued registration as a doctor.”

Former Palm Springs Doctor in Deep Doo-Doo Yet Again

Posted in Med Nuts in the News, Third-World Assassins on August 12, 2013 by PatricParamedic

Amazing how many lab coat lunatics graduate from med school and then forget how to keep their pee-pees tucked into their adult pants.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

A Coachella Valley real estate developer who was once a physician until his medical license was revoked, has been convicted yet again of sexual harassment.

The former doctor, Suresh Shah, was found guilty last week by a Riverside County Superior Court jury after a month-long trial in Palm Springs.

Court records show that a property leasing agent at the Town Center Mall, Karen Moran,  was believed credible by the jury, when she complained that Shah had committed gender discrimination and sexual harassment, during a 6-month period that began in the summer of 2007.

During the trial attorney John Dalton presented eight other women who testified to sexual misconduct by Shah toward them. The women reported that Shah would touch Moran inappropriately and use “vulgar, gender-based language” when talking to her and other female employees. They testified he would often ask for sexual encounters in exchange for higher salaries, and repeatedly sent them sexually explicit emails.

“Frankly, I think the jury was incensed by this man’s behavior,” Dalton said.

Shah, age 72, was ordered by the court to pay $250,000 in compensatory damages, and because the jury also believed Shah acted with “malice” he must also pay $1,000,000 in punitive damages.

Before he emigrated to the United States this Third World Assassin attended

Municipal Medical College Gujarat University  in Ahmedabad and graduated in 1975.

This man’s real name is Sureshchandra C. Shah and we knew him personally when he was Chief of Anesthesiology at John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Indio in the 1980s. Our rescue team clearly recalls being advised when his medical license was revoked in 2000 and he was therefore not legally able to see our patients, as the result of serious ethical violations including sexual misconduct with patients.

And in the year 2008 the California State Medical Board performed a very rare act, when they denied his re-licensure, determining that this man was not fit to treat patients in any capacity.

Shah’s behavior around medical staff members we were familiar with, was part of the impetus for us to write “America’s Dumbest Doctors.”

Doctor Handcuffs

You can file this one under the category “Won’t these idiots ever learn?”

As nearly as we can tell, a full 246 doctors ended up in court last month, after stepping into serious legal doo-doo. And it is well worth noting that for every MD found legally culpable of crimes, another 25 are sanctioned civilly behind closed doors.

Here are just a few of them. Lord have mercy, are these fools are serious pigs:

Gold Scammer Edward Dumba Muwawu (right)

The High Court in Kampala has convicted a witchdoctor after he was found guilty of defrauding his clients in a gold scam.

Edward Dumba Muwawu was found guilty of Fraud when he pretended to be selling them gold but failed to honor the transaction.

Most of his gold clients were residents of Europe and believed he had showed a kind heart by even offering to transport the gold to them.

Witnesses told the court that Muwawu introduced  a man whom he claimed was a brother of the Democratic Republic of Congo President, Joseph Kabila, who “owns a gold mine” with the assurance that there would be a constant supply of gold.

Spend five minutes on the MedicalMiscreant website and you will easily understand why one need not seek out a Ugandan witchdoctor to be victimized by a “healthcare provider.”

Ohio State MD Admits Downloading Child Porn on University Computer

Posted in Med Nuts in the News with tags , on July 27, 2013 by PatricParamedic

Dr Christopher E Pelloski

Dr Christopher E Pelloski

In Columbus Ohio, the State University director of the pediatric cancer radiation program, has been arrested on federal criminal charges of downloading child pornography.

According to a Franklin County special investigation unit, Doctor Christopher Pelloski confessed to detectives that he had “downloaded numerous images and videos depicting minors engaged in explicit sexual acts on the internet.”

Pelloski, age 39, was chained and shackled when he was brought into federal court last week. After a brief hearing, he was released on bail by Judge Norah King on home confinement with electronic monitoring. Pelloski, who is married with two children, was ordered to have no unsupervised contact with children, including his own.

Pelloski had been the Director of the Pediatric Radiation Oncology Program at Ohio State’s James Cancer Hospital. He is also affiliated with Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.

A spokeswoman for Ohio State reported the university administration and staff were “deeply disturbed” by the case, and that Pelloski no longer has permission to access the medical center.

All of his patients have been reassigned to other staff members.

Texas Physician Arrested Yet Again on Illegal Money Scheme

Posted in Med Nuts in the News on July 13, 2013 by PatricParamedic
Dr Don M O'Neal

Dr Don M O’Neal

In the city of Sulphur Springs Doctor Don M. O’Neal was arrested by the Hopkins County Sheriff’s Department this week for violating terms of his court-ordered probation.

According to court records, O’Neal failed to pay $800,000 in restitution as ordered by the court. The embattled physician had previously pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to felony misuse of fiduciary property of more than $200,000 and was initially given a deadline of August 12, 2012 to pay the restitution.

At the time of his felony plea, O’Neal was also ordered by Judge Robert Newson to not sell any of his properties or assets in order to pay the fine. The prosecutor in the case, Martin Braddy, told the court that O’Neal ignored the order and attempted to do so anyway.

As far back as 2008, the Drug Enforcement Administration was investigating O’Neal following a report by a pharmacist of suspicious narcotic prescription activity. The DEA investigators discovered 80% of O’Neal’s patients were receiving high dosages of oxycodone, hydrocodone, benzodiazepines and methadone.

The following year O’Neal was able to evade criminal charges by surrendering his certificate to prescribe narcotics.

O’Neal was employed by the Sulphur Springs Medical-Surgical Clinic, which specializes in nursing home patient treatment. He was originally arrested on more than 30 felony counts, including fraudulently using the license of another doctor.

In April 2010, O’Neal was arrested again and charged with 20 more counts of fraud for ordering and administering narcotics with no valid DEA license.

O’Neal has been released from jail on a $25,000 bond. The possible prison sentence for a first-degree felony offense is up to 99 years.

Stanford Surgeon Caught in the Act of Setting Fires at Two Businesses

Posted in Med Nuts in the News on June 16, 2013 by PatricParamedic
Dr Noah M. Minskoff

Dr Noah M. Minskoff

A Stanford University general surgeon was taken into custody in the Bay-area city of San Carlos. He has been charged with Arson and Vandalism.

According to information released by the San Mateo County District Attorney,  officers for the sheriff’s department responded to two different businesses on two separate occasions, where each time they found Doctor Noah M. Minskoff, age 34, acting strangely, setting fires, ransacking desks and files and – on one occasion – coating the floor of a business known as Thermo Essence with a fire starter. On both occasions, he was transported to the San Mateo County psychiatric facility. Following his release, he was then taken into custody.

According to court records, both incidences occurred last December.

Arson

Minskoff, who is on staff at Stanford University Medical Center, was charged with two counts of arson; one count of felony vandalism; one count of felony possession of brass knuckles and one count of resisting arrest. He is currently out on $150,000 bail, on the condition that he remain under psychiatric supervision.

Minskoff has a trial date set for September 3.

The Case of the Peeping Podiatrist

Dr  Ninos D Jando

Some folks actually think we make this stuff up

_________________________________

In Muskegon Michigan Circuit Court, a foot doctor has changed his ‘not guilty’ plea to ‘guilty’ to charges of secretly filming male athletes in the shower room at Muskegon Community College.

Over the strong objections of the prosecution, Doctor Ninos Danny Jando, age 34, will avoid going to state prison. He was instead convicted of three counts of recording images of nude persons without their permission. And although these are felonies which could merit a five-year term, Judge William Marietti elected to limit Jando’s sentence to 9 months in county jail.

According to the police report, the incident happened in the early evening on January 28. A student taking a shower in the college locker room noticed that Jando, who was also showering, was behaving suspiciously, taking great care to position a shaving kit on the shower head. The student realized that Jando had also placed a second kit on top of a garbage container nearby. When police arrived, they discovered both kits contained hidden cameras focused through small holes. Jando was arrested immediately.

Upon search of the doctor’s car, police discovered a half-dozen similar shaving kits, as well as a laptop with images of nude males in various locker rooms.

Investigators also found numerous health club membership cards with Jando’s photo but with different names. The number of victims filmed could be in the hundreds.

Here’s another take on the case: http://legalpronews.findlaw.com/article/09aZeIZ4egfP5

*          *          *

Our Observations:

Although we do not find this particular incident an earth-shaking event, this lab coat freak with a fetish was also arrested in 2009 for doing the same thing. But because he was a doctor, his case was reduced to Disorderly Conduct. Had the physician disciplinary system worked properly, he would have been stopped then. Instead, he skipped along his merry way, and was therefore able to continue his shower room games for another three years.

Dr Charles O Davidson

Dr Charles O Davidson

A retired physician in the Northwest Indiana city of Dyer has admitted in court that he is guilty of his elderly mother’s homicide.

Doctor Charles O. Davidson, age 77, told Judge Salvador Vasquez that he shot his bedridden mother, Blanch Bradley, age 95, in the chest and then turned the handgun on himself, because they were both suffering from severe health problems.

Police found the elderly woman dead in her bed on April 1, 2012, with Davidson slumped nearby with a non-lethal gunshot wound to his mouth. They discovered two .38-caliber handguns in the home.

Since the incident, the doctor has been out on bail. He had been charged with Reckless Homicide. He faces a prison term of up to eight years.

The doctor is scheduled to be sentenced in Lake Superior Court August 16.
