Pervert Physician Admits 2 Sexual Assaults – Gets Probation

 

Dr Rajat Prakash

Dr Rajat Prakash

It was in November 2011 when a young woman named Stacy Rowland was being treated for a flare-up of her multiple sclerosis at Chicago’s Advocate Christ Medical Center. Stacy’s doctor was Rajat Prakash.

As she lay in her hospital bed, she testified in court, the physician abruptly began touching her sexually, and forced her to touch him.

“He did terrible things. I just felt so violated,” Rowland stated.

Now, nearly three years later, Prakash, age 49, has admitted in court exactly what he did, not only to Stacy, but also to the attack of another woman. He confessed to luring another female patient into his SUV and sexually attacked her.

What kind of sentence would you estimate might be proper for two sexual assaults?

Well, Madman Prakesh will receive not one day in jail. He has been sentenced to one year probation and a fine by the court.

Do you think that this creep’s medical license ought to maybe be – oh, we don’t know – revoked by the state of Illinois?

Might a logical trier of fact expect this repeat predator should be deported?

Not a chance, friends. The United States of America does not deport immigrant criminal doctors.

To the contrary.

We keep them licensed, you see, so they can move away; cross a state line; get relicensed, and enjoy the full weight of government protection, so that their crimes won’t be discovered by their future patients.

Ever heard of the National Practitioner Data Bank? Probably not. They keep a pretty low profile. Their job is to keep track of physician histories – a jaw-dropping number of whom are listed under the headings “Dangerous” or “Questionable.”

Any idea how many doctors’ names can be found in the files at the NPDB?

It is highly unlikely you even have a clue, because their names and office locations are . . . well, a secret.

Healthcare isn’t about to tell you whether your doctor has a criminal background, or not. They absolutely won’t tell you how many doctors are listed on the wall of shame called the NPDB.

So we’ll tell you. As of December, 2013, the Data Bank held the names of 250,000 physicians. That’s a quarter-million doctors in 25 years. Go ahead. Do the math.

Now, how much of any of this insanity has ever been mentioned over the course of the brain-thudding debate called Obama Care?

Zero.

The last thing healthcare in this country wants . . . is an educated public.

Doctors as Drug Pushers: What a Perfect Karmic Marriage

 

Dr Najam Azmat

Dr Najam Azmat

______________________________________________________________

Federal investigators say the surgeries performed by Azmat were worthless, medically unnecessary and killed people.

______________________________________________________________

In Savannah Georgia federal court a jury has convicted Doctor Najam Azmat, age 57, on narcotics conspiracy charges; money-laundering and 49 counts of drug dealing.

Investigators learned that in less than a one-month period of time, for example, while working at East Health Center in Garden City, Azmat wrote prescriptions for 196 patients – nearly all of whom received prescriptions for oxycodone, a highly additive painkiller, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The clinic was so well-known to drug addicts that people came from as far as Florida, Kentucky and Ohio and typically paid $300 each to see Azmat or other physician drug dealers. Azmat’s “patients” testified in court that that they were addicted to oxycodone and learned of the clinic through rival pill mills in Florida.

The corrupt MD was paid $2,000 at the end of each work day for prostituting his medical license.

Five others staff members have also pleaded guilty.

Here’s a DEA Press Release about the case:

http://www.justice.gov/dea/divisions/atl/2014/atl012314.shtml

The investigation of East Health Center was a joint effort conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration; Georgia Bureau of Investigation; Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team; the IRS and the U.S. Marshals Service.

Najam Azmat will spend the next 11 years in federal prison.

Our Observations:

Prior to his life of crime, Najam Azmat graduated from Khyber Medical University in Pakistan, in 1982. He emigrated to the U.S. and . . . well, you know the rest.

Alabama MD Goes Down in “Drugs for Sex” Scheme

Dr Joseph Ngui Mwau Ndolo

Dr Joseph Ngui Mwau Ndolo

In the city of Fairhope a 60-year-old physician has changed his “Not Guilty” plea to “Guilty” to multiple federal drug charges.

Doctor Joseph Ngui Mwau Ndolo, who specialized in internal medicine, admitted in Southern District Court of Alabama that between the years 2008-2013, he sold narcotics for profit out of his office.

According to U.S. Attorney Kenyen Brown, Ndolo ran a “pill mill” for at least 5 years out of his  private clinic, Premier Internal Medicine in Fairhope.

Investigators learned also that the corrupt doctor would routinely swap oxycodone and other narcotics for sex with his so-called “patients.” People in the neighborhood came to call Ndolo’s clinic the “candy store” because of the ease with which anyone could buy drugs.

Prosecutors were able to show how the manic medic put his patients’ safety in jeopardy by – for instance – writing medically needless prescriptions without conducting patient examinations.

Ndolo was ordered to surrender his medical license by the Alabama state board. He faces a penalty of 20 years in prison for each drug charge. He is scheduled to be sentenced August 22.

Next Doctor Visit? Here’s What You Should be Asking

Armand Leone Jr. MD, JD

Armand Leone Jr. MD, JD

_______________________________________________________________

Armand Leone Jr., MD, JD, a diagnostic radiologist and co-founder of Britcher, Leone & Roth, shares these 5 things your doctor knows, but may not tell you unless you ask.

_______________________________________________________________

If you want to make the most out of your time with your doctor, you’ve got to be honest. Keeping important details to yourself may harm you in the long run. Doctors also know a lot of things we don’t, so we patients have to ask the right questions.

1. Having elective surgery on a Friday or in the afternoon carries a higher mortality and complication rate than earlier in the week or day.

Obviously, when the situation is urgent, surgery can’t wait. But for elective surgery, you might want to consider the timing. Make no mistake about it — ALL surgeries come with risks and complications. On Monday, everybody there — surgeons, nurses, residents — are regular staff. At about 4:00 p.m. on Friday, regular crews leave. When you have surgery at the end of the day, those 12 critical post-op hours happen at night. Complications happen on weekends, but it’s more difficult to get immediate action on them because covering physicians don’t know the patients as well and are less quick to intervene for another doctor’s patient.

2. Fatal medication errors spike by 10 percent every July as new medical residents start taking care of patients (J Gen Intern Med 2010).

Depending on the situation, patients can’t always be aware of what medications they’re given. If you’re conscious and clearheaded, you should have a rough idea of the medications you’re supposed to get. Ask the nurses, confirm the details, and if it doesn’t seem right or if the medication looks different from what you’re usually given, ask the nurse to check with the doctor. Be vigilant and ask questions.

3. A misdiagnosis happens in at least one out of every 20 patient encounters in doctors’ offices (BMJ Qual Saf 2014).

Let’s start with this: Most medical errors in a primary care setting don’t make a difference. Primary care docs have less time to talk and examine a patient, so there are certain mental short cuts. For example, a doctor sees 10 patients with the flu and you come in with flu symptoms. There’s a bias toward diagnosing the flu. Leone says about half of this type of error have the potential for serious injury, but only a small percentage actually result in serious injury. The good news is that most times, if a doctor sees a patient and gives the wrong diagnosis, with continuity of care, it gets reassessed.

So, what’s a patient to do? If you sense your doctor is rushed or not listening, or that the diagnosis may not be right, you need to break the autopilot and focus them. Ask your doctor: ‘If the diagnosis isn’t right, how and when will we know?’ or ‘How will we know if treatment is working?’ Your doctor should respond with something concrete so you have something to gauge and will know when to follow up.

4. Your doctor’s surgical and procedure complication rates and how they compare to the national rates for the same procedure.

It’s not unreasonable to ask. For any procedure, there are known complications and national averages. Doctors should have a good idea of their personal complication rates. The surgeon who is dismissive or says it’s ‘not a problem’ or it’s a ‘walk in the park’ bothers me. I want the surgeon who goes in knowing there could be a complication and acknowledging they need to be on the lookout. If I ask a doctor about complication rates, I just want an honest answer. It doesn’t have to be an exact number. At the end of the day, it’s not so much the complication rate, but that they’re aware that complications can occur. I just want to know they’re watching carefully for complications and they’re ready to deal with them.

5. Doctors know the limits of modern medicine and most don’t choose heroic cancer treatments or end-of-life care for themselves.

So what do doctors know that we don’t? Sometimes, they know that heroic treatment won’t change the outcome. Just because it can be done, it doesn’t mean you should do it.

You have to be realistic about the chances for a cure. There’s a physical, emotional, and financial cost to medical treatment. Treatments have risk and drugs have adverse effects. When you know that, you can balance the equation differently. Is there a reason to put yourself through the ringer? Is it worth it? Quality of life is as important as length of life. That’s why most doctors opt for less heroic end-of-life care, unless there’s a specific reason to do otherwise.

The bottom line is that we patients should be partners in our own care. If we have a concern, it’s up to us to ask questions. A good doctor won’t mind. If your doctor discourages questions or dismisses your concerns, it’s time to find a new doctor.

Saudi Doctor Gets Whipping for His Fornicating Ways

No wonder criminal doctors come here

No wonder criminal doctors come here

In the Gulf kingdom of Saudi Arabia a criminal court judge has sentenced an Arab physician to a 10-year prison term, after finding him guilty of having sexual relationships with female patients.

According to the Sabq News in the city of Riyadh, the unnamed doctor admitted in court to having numerous affairs with women he had treated as patients.

The newsline reported that the Kingdom’s religious police had caught  the doctor performing an “obscene act” with a woman in her home in the city of Afif, a town of about 40,000 located between Mecca and Riyadh.

The doctor was also ordered to be whipped as part of his punishment.

Here’s another view of mid-eastern physician punishment:

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/babylonbeyond/2008/11/egypt-whipping.html

*          *          *

Our Observations:

Six years ago, in November, 2008, the Saudi’s sentenced two Egyptian physicians to more than 1,000 lashes each for drug trafficking and patient rape. Doctors Shawki Abd Raboh and Raouf El-Arabi were also sentenced to more than 15 years in prison.

Convict them? Of course we convicted them. 200 a month, actually. But the nuts just keeeep oooon coming . . .

Name one other profession that generates as much crime

The Medical Miscreant tally for 2013 is Now in: 2,196 Found Guilty

Dr Handcuffed

As physician misbehavior investigators, we see enormous flaws in any Health Care ‘reform’ that refuses to address the off-the-chart volume of physician-related mischief. How is it that this subject is so deftly, consistently, blatantly sidestepped?

Monstrous fraud; thousands of unwarranted procedures each day; drug pushing beyond reason –  our health care system provides fertile ground for excess and abuse. Chew on these points for a minute:

1. U.S. DOJ: “the estimated law enforcement cost to police & try criminal doctors and medical fraud, is 1/2 TRILLION dollars annually.” Let’s all stop and stare at that number again: $500,000,000,000.

2. 11,000 physicians found criminally guilty of serious misbehavior in the last decade. Five times as many faced civil or ethic sanctions.

3. 2010 – 2,389 doctors convicted of egregious acts.

4. 2009 – 2,490 guilty verdicts, 5,000+ more sanctioned in civil proceedings.

When a single New York surgeon can perform & bill for 10,000 unwarranted eye operations . . .

When a team of heart surgeons can cut open 900+ healthy chests to pad their own bank accounts . . .

When the Michigan medical board chairman utters the words, “Yes, it can take five years to remove a child molester MD” . . .

Then the only line that comes to mind was spoken on Apollo 13:

“Houston, we have a problem.”

Until we weed out the lab coat lunacy, any talk of “reform” is window dressing.
