Yes, 50 doctors per week; 210 is the average for a typical month. These jaw-dropping numbers are the sad “normal” in American healthcare. No other profession generates such preposterous volume of crime. Here are but a few medical miscreants in court over the past seven days:
Walayat Khan MD, age 66 of Ypsilanti Michigan – Guilty, $7,000,000 health care scam
Donald Wagoner MD, age 78 of Kokomo Indiana – 30-year sentence, Drug dealing from his Wagoner Medical Clinic offices

210 doctor convictions per month. Happy to do the math for you: That’s 10 Guilty verdicts for every court calendar date of the year.
What other profession carves such a monstrous swathe of destruction through an otherwise intelligent society?
None. Not a one.
Just makes you proud to call yourself an American, doesn’t it?
And people wonder why we wrote the book . . .
