Doctors: Still Think They’re Smarter Than You Are?


You’ll kindly note the tail

So which do you think is better news: That a physician wouldn’t notice the tail, or  that he sees it and pretends he doesn’t?

A Southern California physician has been convicted of being an illegal drug-pusher, operating  his Los Angeles-area clinic as a “pill mill”.

Last Tuesday a superior court jury found Doctor Richard S. Kim, a resident of Rancho Palos Verdes, guilty of 17 felonies, for illegally prescribing drugs for no legitimate medical reason.

During the trial the prosecution was able to prove that Kim, age 44,  was routinely writing prescriptions for heavy narcotics – Norco, Xanax, Soma and Adderall – without performing patient histories, creating medical records or performing physical exams, on thousands of walk-in “patients”.

“Kim operated an unusual practice. He had no staff. Patients would call or send him a text message. He would unlock his office door and let them in.” (The prosecution)

Prosecutors revealed that Kim would often have customers bring their own medical charts and X-rays to his one-man clinic. The jury needed very little time to come to a guilty verdict, after having viewed an undercover agent’s X-ray of his dog as “proof” of his medical problem.

“You can actually see the dog’s tail in the X-ray.” (Deputy D.A. John Niedermann of the Major Narcotics Division)

Kim, who had been free on $100,000 bail, was handcuffed immediately and taken to Los Angeles County Jail after the verdict was read. His possible sentence could be 12 years.

This particular stethoscope schemer is scheduled to be sentenced September 30.


Incidentally, if you happen to be a patient of Robert Kim MD, don’t bother showing up at his clinic. The doctor isn’t in.

Here’s another look at this doctor dirt-bag:

Oh, Doctor! Why Do You Keep Stepping into Deep Doggy Doo-doo?

What the heck did  this one do?


The Texas State Medical Board has decided to “restrict” the medical license of one Doctor Robert Wayne Van Boven. He was a staff member at Lakeway Regional Medical Center until he was fired last year, according to a hospital spokeswoman. 

Van Boven is also a neurologist at the Brain & Body Health Institute in the city of Lakeway. The board learned that horn-dog Van Boven was routinely engaging in highly inappropriate sexual behavior and making nasty comments to female patients. They say this particular misbehavior happened in April and May, 2015, and they believe both patients’ statements are credible. They found considerable similarity in what the women say happened to them.

“The final review will demonstrate that this was based on egregious false facts, financial and other improper motives,” he said. “I pray that truth will prevail.” (Van Boven in a statement)

(Note to doc: When one attempts to persuade others, a brighter effort is to anchor your statements in a foundation of logic. Here’s a hint: there exists no such thing in the universe  as “false facts.” Wise up)

This isn’t the first time the stethoscope snollygoster has stepped into deep doctor doo-doo. According to Lakeway Police Department, their officers were sent out to his house in 2008 and again in 2013 for domestic disputes. And he was involved in 2 separate cases of Criminal Trespassing in 2015.

Oh. Almost forgot. This med school graduate can’t seem to master how to drive a car on public streets. He’s accumulated 8 traffic citations and has been stopped 16 other times while behind the wheel, when he should have been handcuffed – but wasn’t.

According to the Texas Medical Board, the restriction they placed on Van Boven “prohibits him from seeing, examining, treating, prescribing or otherwise practicing medicine on female patients.”

Our question is this: Why is this character allowed the privilege of touching anybody?

Of the 77,000 licensed physicians in Texas, the Texas Medical Board reports they bring an average of 300 disciplinary actions against doctors annually. They say 40-50 lose their licenses.

But this one hasn’t lost his yet. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, 2 Years Ago a Columbian-immigrant MD Got 10 Years for Poisoning Her Man-Friend

Houston Doctor Ana Maria Gonzalez-Angulo, now behind bars for mixing up some sweet poisoning. “She invited him over for a cup of ‘special Colombian coffee’.”


Go ahead. Ask us again why we call them ‘Third World Assassins’

It was exactly 2 years ago when a Houston jury realized they were about to sentence a Texas cancer researcher to state prison. She was days away from being convicted of poisoning her doctor/lover. The jury knew by September 14, 2014, that Columbian Doctor Ana Maria Gonzalez-Angulo had spiked her co-worker’s coffee in a spasm of revenge, with a chemical found in antifreeze. The 43-year=old breast cancer specialist at Houston’s renown MD Anderson Medical Center, had been involved in a sneaky sexual relationship with her fellow researcher, Doctor George Blumenschein. And then he started playing house with another brunette because, well, boys will be boys.

We can promise you that – as a veteran Paramedic – hospital-horny-toad shenanigans run as rampant as anything you can imagine in a college dormitory.

The prosecution was proving that their affair had turned into a “fatal attraction.” After more than a year of secret copulating encounters, Doctor Ana decided to poison Doctor Blumenschein with ethylene glycol. He was, after all, spending an awful lot of time with his longtime live-in girlfriend, Doctor Evette Toney. And wow. Did Ana love George. She loved him so much she decided to kill him.

Horn-dog Blumenschein got lucky. He survived the poisoning. And a Houston Superior Court jury sent Doctor Ana-nana bo-bana  to go sit in a cage until the year 2024. She could have been sentenced to 30 years, but she wasn’t. After all, she isn’t just your run-of-the-mill jilted homicidal freak. She’s a special human being. She’s a doctor, for God sakes.

So how about this: How about we all be thankful today – exactly 2 years later – that this particular pair of hormonal, stethoscope fools didn’t have time to breed. Let’s thank Heaven for small favors, shall we?

Ana Gonzalez-Angulo, George Blumenschein: ‘Snapped’ Profiles Houston Doctor’s Sexual Affair, Which Almost Killed Him After Coffee Poisoning


Doctor Dodges the Tax Man: Big Mistake


Dr Anthony P. Sertich

In the city of San Antonio Texas a physician has been sent off to state prison after being found guilty on a long list tax fraud felonies.

Doctor Anthony P. Sertich, age 60, was convicted last March on 10 charges of failure to pay  taxes and one charge of tax evasion. He was sentenced to three and one-half years behind bars this week.

Investigators discovered that the doctor had failed to pay more than $250,000 to the IRS that he collected from his medical staff payroll taxes at his clinic, the Advanced Artistic Facial Plastic Surgery of Texas.

Over an 8-year span that ended in 2010, detectives learned that the scamming MD accrued nearly $3,000,000 in unpaid tax penalties and interest, according to federal law enforcement. They say that the doctor  withheld employee taxes and then kept the money for himself. He then filed for bankruptcy multiple times in order to avoid paying his creditors.

Scamster Sertich did, however, manage to pay himself several million dollars in salary.

The wayward MD has been ordered to repay $3,000,000 in restitution to the IRS.

Indian-Immigrant MD Caught in ‘Drugs for Sex’ Embarrassment

Our Third World Assassins just keep right on keepin’ on . . . .

“Doctors who exploit patients are the worst kind of predators.” (San Diego DEA Agent-in-Charge William Sherman)


Dr Naga Raja Thota

In the San Diego suburb of El Cajon, Doctor Naga Raja Thota was handcuffed and taken to jail last week. He has been charged with Illegal Narcotic Distribution in a particularly sleazy scheme.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Thota, age 62, was taken into custody by San Diego DEA agents at his clinic, the Pain Management Center, located at 2732 Navajo Road in El Cajon. He was arraigned in Federal Court Wednesday before Judge Bernie Skomal.

The charges are supported by sworn statements by at least three women, that they regularly received oxycodone prescriptions for no medical need, in exchange for sex acts. The investigation revealed a clear pattern of illegal behavior by Thota, in which sexually-explicit texts were retrieved by police, between the physician and the women, followed immediately by illegal prescriptions.


The case record states one of the women reported she met Thota when she was in the hospital for drug addiction. Before she was released, Thota falsified her medical chart to indicate he was treating her for pain, even though she was in no real pain at all.

The woman, age 20 at the time, told police she was addicted, and agreed to sexual liaisons with the doctor in order to keep getting the drugs. Investigators say she reported that her sexual relationship with the doctor began 3 days after she met him. She said he called and asked her out and the drug gravy train was well on its way.


Thota is being held in San Diego on 7 charges of dispensing opioids for no medical reason. He could get 20 years in federal prison and a $1,000,000 fine.

Judge Skomal set the daffy doc’s bail at $100,000.

(Anyone with information regarding other victims of Dr. Thota was urged to contact the DEA at 858-616-4100)

‘Snake-Sex’ Doc Faces Disbarment in London

The United Kingdom is flooded with their own “Third World Assassin” problem. Of course, like the good ‘ol USA, who keeps holding the gate open?

Dr Cyprian Okoro

Doctor Cyprian Okoro

In Great Britain a physician arrested for his internet collection of “extreme pornography” is currently on trial in a London criminal court.

Doctor Cyprian Okoro, age 55, was caught storing some rather despicable images on his cell phone, including at least one video of a woman performing a sex act with a horse; 3 videos of  a woman copulating with a dog;  an adult male having sex with a snake. 

The wacky MD Okoro, who emigrated to England from Lagos Nigeria,  was also charged with possession of indecent images of a two-year-old boy.

The Nigerian doctor, who gained his British medical license in 2013, was originally handcuffed and taken to jail on 5 counts of “grossly offensive, disgusting, obscene pornography”.

Prosecutor Nicola Devas told the jury they would be spared from having to watch the videos, because the question of their “extreme indecency” is irrefutable.

Okoro, a family medicine specialist who lives in the London neighborhood of Streatham, has pleaded not guilty. His case continues next week.

California Doctor Admits Stealing Artifacts From National Parks

“Our ancestors have lived in Death Valley since before written time.  The Timbisha people identify ourselves by our art, our being, our obligation to take care of the lands and to continue our traditions and customs. The Timbisha Shoshone Tribe is very distressed about the actions of this doctor, who took it upon himself to destroy a large prehistoric site here in Death Valley National Park, the homelands of the Timbisha Shoshone.  Our ancestors left their messages here, for their future familes and the general public to enjoy and cherish.  When theft occurs, it not only hurts the Tribe, but everybody.” (Barbara Durham, historic preservation officer, Timbisha Shoshone Tribe)

Dr Jonathan C Bourne 2

Bourne, a 59-year-old anesthesiologist who lives in Mammoth Lakes, formally entered a guilty plea on August 15, according to U.S. Attorney Phillip Talbert. 


Investigators revealed that Bourne had been stealing artifacts since 1994. He was ordered to return an estimated 20,000 archaeological pieces.

According to the court record, in January 2011,  Bourne damaged a specific prehistoric site in Death Valley National Park and removed a native American tool carved from a bighorn sheep horn, as well as ancient stone tablets, which were found in his home.

Death Valley is the homeland of the Timbisha Shoshone Tribe. The tribe has had a strong impact on the history, culture, and ecology there, in partnership with the National Park Service.

“It feels great to have a conviction in this major case!” Death Valley Superintendent Mike Reynolds. 

Bad-boy Bourne could get 2 years in prison and a $400,000 fine, in addition to the $250,000 he has already paid. He is scheduled to be sentenced on November 7 in U.S. District Court. He is banned from all national parks.

(The successful prosecution of this case – as well as the return of the artifacts to their respective parks – is the result of an investigation by the U.S. Forest Service,  the Bureau of Land Management and  the National Park Service.)
