In the city of Pace Florida a 55-year-old occupational medicine specialist has admitted in court to seven counts of filing false tax returns.

Doctor Sheila Mohammed, who owns and operates a business called The Industrial Medicine Institute in Pace, confessed to causing false corporate tax reports of the clinic for a three-year period that started in 2010.

She has been ordered to repay more than $250,000 to the IRS, and faces a maximum prison sentence of 21 years and a fine of $700,000 at her next court date in July.

The charges are the result of an investigation by the Internal Revenue Service and the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Department.

British Doctor Gets 6-Year Sentence for Sexually Assaulting Nurses

‘Sex pest doctor spanked my bottom,’ one nurse testified

Dr Ram Manohar

Dr Ram Manohar arrives at Liverpool court

In the city of Merseyside England a physician was found guilty yesterday of multiple counts of sexual battery on two medical staff members.

Doctor Ram Manohar, age 38, had claimed he did not touch the women in any “sexual or inappropriate” way in 2013, while on duty at Arrowe Park Hospital.

But the prosecution was  able to prove to a Liverpool Crown Court jury what two nurses had reported to police about the behavior  of Manohar behind closed doors was true, The jury convicted him on three of the four counts of sexual assault, after five hours of deliberations. The case was heard by Judge Andrew Menary, who sentenced Manohar to six years in prison and said this:

“You wanted to have a physical no-strings attached affair with the first nurse. What she experienced would have been every woman’s worst nightmare while undergoing a medical examination.”

The judge said he did not accept the doctor’s explanation that the second nurse had welcomed his physical attention. He believed her when she testified that she was left terrified and bewildered.

He said. “You were until now held in the very highest regard by your colleagues. All of that has now gone. You will never practice medicine again.”

Our Observations:

The United States is not the only country that has to cope with Third World Assassins. But we can promise you Manohar MD would never have gotten a 6-year sentence in this country.

So we soundly cheer the Brits for locking this chap away and meting out an appropriate punishment.

Two Years Ago This Week: Medicine’s Monsters . . .

Mr. McDonald & Medical Miscreants, Inc:

“Would you please share this story and get the word out. Whether you think all abortionists are going to hell, or that a child only becomes “human” after the magical barrier of 24 weeks, we can all agree that this man is evil. He is wrong, and as a society, we must not be caught doing nothing.”

James Velasquez

“Among the relatively few cases that could be specifically documented, one was ‘Baby Boy A’. His 17-year-old mother was almost 30 weeks pregnant – seven and a half months – when labor was induced. An employee estimated his birth weight as approaching six pounds. He was breathing and moving when Dr. Gosnell severed his spine and put the body in a plastic shoebox for disposal.” (A clinic staff member, testifying in the Gosnell trial in Philadelphia)

Dr Kermit Gosnell

Dr Kermit Gosnell

As was his wont, Dr. Kermit B. Gosnell would try to lighten the mood with a bit joking. “Boy A” was, he said, “big enough to walk me to the bus stop.”

But “Boy A” will never have that chance. The good doctor saw to that.

Doctor Gosnell was the operator of an abortion mill – this was no clinic – located in West Philadelphia, called the Women’s Medical Society and set up in 1972. He was a product of the local neighborhood, and he had spent almost four decades running his establishment – “giving back” to the community he grew up in.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell's proud handiwork

Doctor Kermit Gosnell’s proud handiwork. He collected millions on his nightmare procedures

Of course, he had a peculiar form of charity: “Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A child screaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure.”  Gosnell’s mill was known for its willingness to carry out late-term abortions – the illegal practice of killing a child after the initial 24 weeks of pregnancy.  Indeed, as word spread about the doctor’s services, women would come from all around to enjoy the benefit of his service.

“His patients came from several states,” the Grand Jury Report notes. “Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina, and throughout Pennsylvania.”

Despite the popularity, Gosnell’s offices were far from presentable.

One snip of the scissors and it's like bowling for dollars

Cutting infant spinal chords with scissors – just another day at work for a doctor with the ‘God Complex’

“There was blood on the floor,” witnesses reported. “A stench of urine filled the air. A flea-infested cat was wandering through the facility, and there were cat feces on the stairs. Semi-conscious women scheduled for abortions were moaning in the waiting room or the recovery room, where they sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets.”

But despite the awful conditions, the illegal practices, and the innumerable women and children who were both injured and killed as a result of Gosnell’s actions, the man was still able to operate for almost 40 years. The reason is a combination of politics, prejudice, and plain negligence.

After approving the Women’s Medical Society to open an abortion clinic in 1979, the Pennsylvania Department of Health apparently conducted no site reviews for another 10 years. In both 1992 and 1993, Gosnell’s mill was guilty of “numerous violations,” but allowed to stay open on the promise that he would go about fixing them.

Despite countless appeals, complaints, warnings, and death, the Gosnell mill continued to operate until February 18, 2010, when an FBI raid of the offices was executed on reports of “illegal prescription activity.”

What they found, of course, was much worse.

//          //          //

The official trial of Kermit Gosnell opened on March 18 this year, to something of a major media blackout. While it is not surprising that our friends on the left want to avoid this incident, it does occasionally hurt to have such suspicions confirmed. He faced seven counts of first-degree murder and multiple counts of “conspiracy, criminal solicitation and violation of a state law” forbidding abortions after 24 weeks.

But to end on a personal note: this is an awful, terrible story. There is no redemption to it. Lives were ended in the most disgraceful of ways. As human beings, we attach meaning to the deaths of loved ones because we see meaning in their lives; so when a life ends, something truly significant is lost. We are even known to bury our pets with love and ceremony: it is a part of the human elevation of being. It is part of our unique place in the world.

Gosnell saw none of that. He joked as his drove scissors into the backs of baby necks; kept parts of human beings stored away in jars, shoeboxes, or plastic bags piled up in the basement; let newborns drop into toilets so that they would occasionally clog up the plumbing. He did this for himself – his own greed and glee.

Thank you for printing this story. So few citizens are aware of the medical monsters, playing God, hiding behind the dignity of a lab coat.

*          *          *

Mr. Velasquez – We are proud to include your story on our site. Kermit Gosnell is the pluperfect example as to why MedicalMiscreants was created in the first place.

The swathe of destruction carved through society by lab coat lunatics – and the blind eyes of those in position to stop them – is appalling beyond belief. Modern medicine holds a baffling posture of indifference to the horrors it generates. And perhaps that is the most damning indictment of all.

Here’s more on this horrific case:

What Do Doctors Really Make? And Would They Choose the Same Profession Again?


According to the Medscape Physician Compensation Report* filed this year, the typical salary for a primary care doctor in America is just under $200,000 per year. A typical specialist earns about $285,000.

The median income for American citizens in 2014 was $52,000.

Who Earns the Most?

Orthopedic surgeons in the United States find themselves at the top of the money chain at $421,000/year.

Cosmetic surgeons come in 5th from the top at $354,000. This is interesting, considering that far more than half of all cosmetic surgery is not covered by insurance, and must therefore be paid for out-of-pocket.

At the low end of physician salaries are primary care physicians, which is one of the least popular specialties for medical students to choose. Internists’ typical pay is $196,000; Family medicine practitioners $195,000; Pediatricians’ average pay is $189,000.

Those specialists who care for some of the most complex patients in society – diabetic specialists and endocrinologists = earn about $196,000.

From 2012 to last year, most docs got a raise. The only specialists to earn slightly less than before were rheumatologists and urologists. HIV/AIDS physicians received the largest increase at 22%. Pulmonary specialists money increased 15%; emergency physicians 12%.

Female MDs historically earn less than males, due in a large extent that women doctors tend to work fewer hours per week and choose lower-paying specialties. Consider that a full 50% of all pediatricians are women, but only 9% of orthopedic surgeons are.

Who is Happy and Who Isn’t?

One of the more curious aspects of the study is the matter of job satisfaction. 60% of dermatologists, emergency physicians and pathologists believe they are fairly compensated. On the other hand, only 42% of orthopedists said they were well paid. Cosmetic surgeons? Only 44% of them say they feel fairly compensated. Helping folks look younger and more attractive must be important work, but we suspect they should be able to scrape by on $30,000 a month.

We find it interesting how often the lowest paid specialty – pediatricians – believe they are well-paid and generally pretty happy. But then again, it’s kinda cool to arrive at work to see toys in your waiting room.

Dermatologists overall have the highest satisfaction with their profession,  with 63% saying they would choose medicine again. 61% are satisfied with their incomes; 73% would choose their specialty again.

Internal medicine people were the most unsatisfied – 45% happy with income; but a mere 25% would choose their specialty again.

The Bottom Line

When it comes to income, doctors –  even the lowest paid primary care folks –  are doing pretty well: they all qualify for the top 1% of wage earners.

But the survey also makes it clear that money alone does not bring happiness or satisfaction. Consider this: 89% of male – and 92% of female – doctors, do NOT believe they are “making good money at a job I like.”

That’s an awful lot of very unhappy people poking and cutting with sharp objects while we are asleep.

That’s hundreds of thousands of doctors making the decision to “do just one more test.”

Suppose that accounts for all the crime?

“I have always been outraged at how the fact that Major Nidal Hasan was a PSYCHIATRIST has been totally ignored by the media. Whenever there is a mass killing, the media laments that not enough money is going to fund Mental Health care [i.e. psychiatrists]. I wonder how many homicidal patients Dr. Hasan “counseled” before wiping out 13 lives all by himself? Who is counseling the wacko psychiatrists?”

“Any rule of law we might have applies more thoroughly to the poor and disenfranchised. The judicial/law enforcement/ prison complex is money driven.
Ted Kennedy’s Immigration Act of 1965 actually discriminates against applicants for citizenship who are from the Western Hemisphere. This was done in the name of ‘fairness’.”

(Ron Slade Sr.)

“Sexual misconduct by doctors just goes on and on, and as you’ve pointed out, doctors pretty much get a pass. If licenses are revoked, they get them back later on. If the judicial system prosecutes, they get probation for actions that would have any other man thrown in prison.”

“This man is, in my opinion, psychopath that likes to “play God” with his patients. He has maimed numerous people. Why? Because he could. Who wouldn’t trust a prestigious doctor? Good thing he was so greedy fleecing insurance companies and got caught so he cant hurt anyone else.”

Why is there no justice?I lived with this doctor for four years in Sori where he worked. Every night he wanted me to sleep with him in his room. One day I declined and from that day on, he said he never loved me anyway, and he stopped giving me money. But he still kept sleeping with my male classmates in his room every night. I was a kid. We were all kids. I cry for justice in American courts.”

“I love this website, but I think you should stop calling these docs all “lunatics” & “dumb”. Those who commit felony-level Medicare fraud for years are pretty intelligent, but morally bankrupt, and their number is increasing-at least in California. I get the daily hot sheet from the Medical Board of California. I am astonished that while in prison, these MD licenses are merely suspended, not revoked.”

“Public citizen has estimated that 15% of docs commit 85% of the malpractice. Health reform and “tort reform”. Funny, exactly, how they won’t just clean up their profession. They don’t seem to get that it not only benefits patients but all docs when they get rid of the bad apples.”

Another Emigrant Doctor Headed for Trial? Yep. A Multiple Rape Case

Starting to sound like a broken record, are we?

Dr Jay Jungho Cho

Dr Jay Jungho Cho

In the greater-Harrisburg Pennsylvania area a doctor who operated clinics in Franklin and Cumberland Counties was bound over for trial this week on some pretty ugly charges.

Doctor Jay Cho, age 71, a resident of Hampden Township, was in Harrisburg Superior Court on Friday for a preliminary hearing, after which he was charged with multiple felonies of prescribing narcotics to more than 10 women patients for the purpose of manipulating their addictions in order to sexually assault them.

Cho was arrested in February for the following:

  • Patient Rape
  • Illegal Drug Delivery by a Medical Practitioner
  • Aggravated Indecent Assault

Investigators in Cumberland County believe Cho routinely dealt powerful narcotics – at least one of which was Oxycodone – to the women, in doses that far exceeded normal prescription range and for no legitimate reason.

Lady Liberty Embarrassed

The court record states the women told investigators they were afraid to reject Cho’s sexual behavior, because he told them he would refuse to continue to supply them with the drugs they were now addicted to.

The formal district attorney complaint states that Cho would meet with the women at his Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation clinics in Chambersburg and in Hampden Township, at times when no staff members were present. He also routinely met the “patients” away from the clinic for no medical reason, in their homes; cars and motel rooms.

Cho’s medical license has been suspended by the Pennsylvania State Medical Board:


  • Other  (2/12/2015)
  • Action Taken: Interim Suspension
  • Summary: Dr. Jay Jungho Cho; License # MD035027Y & # MK001003; NATURE OF COMPLAINT: The physician’s continued practice within the Commonwealth may present an immediate and clear danger to the public health and safety. ACTION TAKEN: The Pennsylvania Board of Medicine temporarily suspended the physician’s licenses pending a hearing.
  • State: Pennsylvania

Cho’s case is scheduled to begin on June 25.

In the meantime, here’s more detail in this despicable subject:

*          *          *

Our Observations:

Jay Jungho Cho MD is a prime example of what we in medicine call a Third World Assassin. This particular character is an emigrant from South Korea who attended Yonsei University in Seoul and graduated in 1968. He then came to the United States and learned – as so many foreign physicians do – that the American healthcare system is ripe for the pickings when it comes to cash and crime. There are fewer schemes in U.S. society easier to pull off than physician drug-dealing. One has to be ridiculously careless to get caught.

In a saner society, this medical misfit would be deported immediately after his prison sentence is over. But the U.S. does not deport criminal doctors. We reward them with a follow-up medical license in another state.

Never, ever forget this:

A criminal physician’s “right” to continue to play doctor, is of considerably more importance to agencies of authority, than public safety.

So stay tuned. Churlish Cho will once again be playing with people’s bodies for money in . . . oh, we give it 3 years, give or take.

Case Update:

Dr. Jay Jungho Cho, age 71 of Mechanicsburg, died Monday, November 9, 2015 at his home. His medical license had been suspended in February by the state medical board, which found that he was an “immediate and clear danger to public safety.”
