Doctor Drug-dealer’s Punishment? ‘Go Home and be a Good Boy’

 

Dr Douglas Watford

Dr Douglas E. Watford

In Greenville North Carolina federal court Doctor Douglas Elry Watford was found guilty of selling narcotics for fun and profit in his little town of Kinston. So the judge spanked him on his adult diaper and sent him home for actions that were apparently not all that serious. Of course had he been a street drug pusher instead of an MD, he would have been spanked a little harder.

Wacky Watford, age 60, was sentenced to 24 months probation after admitting that, well, now that you’ve caught me, I guess I really was routinely  illegally distributing hydrocodone and Xanax. Who told?

Wadford, a family medicine specialist who owned the Watford Family Medicine Center in Kinston, was caught as the result of an undercover sting last year by the State Bureau of Investigations. He was handcuffed on April 15, 2015 and taken to jail on 6 charges of illegal distribution of highly addictive drugs, categorized as Schedule II and Schedule IV controlled substances.

Like most other state medical boards, North Carolina’s figured punishing a drug dealer by making him go sit in a classroom was appropriate discipline. Eventually they went way out on a limb and revoked his medical license.

You can bet they were loathe to punish the wayward doctor at all, because – and you might need to grab your guppies here – state medical boards are top-heavy with . . . . doctors.

And some people actually wonder why we feel the need to continually  embarrass criminal physicians.

Somebody has to.

The Physician Crime-wave Never Stops. It Never Even Slows Down

July 3, 2014

Ho-Hum. Another Week – Another 50 Doctors Convicted of Major Crimes

What does Obama Care have to say about these characters? Nothing

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

Dr Donald Wagoner

Donald Wagoner MD, age 78 of Kokomo Indiana – 30-year sentence, Drug dealing from his Wagoner Medical Clinic offices

Dr Oscar P Gosien

Oscar Gosien MD, age 74 of Oak Hill West Virginia – 35-year sentence, trading narcotics for sex with patients

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 . . .

Sadder than expected; funnier than it ought to be

 

 

Miami ‘Butt-Lift Doctor’ Jailed After Patient Dies

Miami detectives have finally arrested a Venezuelan fugitive whom they suspect killed a 28-year-old woman by recklessly performing lethal buttock-enhancement injections. The man had been on the run for 3 years.

Doctor Jose Alfredo Robusto

‘Doctor’ Jose A. Robusto

Police say  a fraudster named Jose Alfredo Robusto, now age 43, falsely identified himself as a physician in 2013 while employed at a scam business which advertised itself as Cuerpos Health & Aesthetics, located on Flagler Street in Miami. The fake clinic, which was owned and operated by a woman named Ruth Planas, was closed for good by the Florida Health Department after a police raid. According to the health department, Cuerpos Health & Aesthetics was licensed as a simple massage parlor. It was never permitted to perform medical procedures of any kind.

According to its website, Cuerpos Health & Aesthetics  was marketing itself as a clinic. The so-called health clinic  offered “lipo without surgery,” “non-surgical facial lift,” and treatments for “anti-cellulite,” and “body toning.”

In 2013, Suyima Torres, age 28 and foolish beyond belief, fell for the scam and it killed her.

Ms. Torres, who assumed she was putting her life in the hands of medical professionals, paid the crooks $2,300 for multiple injections. Not long after the second injection, she stopped breathing as the result of a fat embolism dislodging from her injection site, gliding up her veins and lodging in her lungs. She was taken by ambulance to Coral Gables Doctors Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

According to the medical examiner who performed the autopsy on the poor woman, Robusto had her lie semi-nude on an examination table, and proceeded to “inject a thick yellow goo in a large syringe,” into the woman’s buttocks.

The  Dade County District Attorney charged Jose Robusto with Homicide and Practicing Medicine Without a License. He was arrested at Miami Airport after trying to re-enter the U.S.

The butt-lift idiocy just keeeeps ooon comin . . .

Heather Meadows

Heather Meadows

10 days  ago, a 29-year-old West Virgina woman visiting Miami also  died after undergoing a procedure – this one at a human chop shop called Encore Plastic Surgery in Hialeah Florida. Investigators said Heather Meadows suffered medical complications during the procedure. Meadows, who had a 6-year-old and a newborn, was rushed to a Hialeah Hospital Emergency and pronounced dead. CBS Miami reports Meadows was having a “Brazilian Butt Lift” done at Encore. The procedure involves liposuction, with the removed fat then injected into the buttocks. The medical examiner reported the woman’s death was caused by fat clots in the arteries of her lungs and heart. When the fat was injected, some of it flowed through her bloodstream to her heart and lungs.

According to Florida investigators, Encore clinic has ties to previous cosmetic-surgery related deaths. This particular butcher shop employs physicians who have routinely maimed patients. Many were discharged to recover with no follow-up care in local motels. In some appalling cases, patients with no better options were sent off to recover and sleep on bunks in horse stables.

State law enforcement have brought felony malpractice charges against rogue MDs  who work at Encore Plastic Surgery in Hialeah, as well as two other health scam operations – Vanity Cosmetic Surgery and Spectrum Aesthetics in Miami. These operations are also known to use unlicensed employees for cosmetic surgical procedures.

Here’s another look at this particular American mind-bend:

California ER Doc Has Tryst with Teen; Goes to Jail

In the northern California city of Redding a physician was handcuffed in Shasta County Superior Court and escorted to jail last week. He  was sentenced  to 7 months behind bars for having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old former patient.

Dr Timothy William Wilkins

Dr Timothy W. Wilkins and attorney Joe Gazzigli

Doctor Timothy William Wilkins, age 41,  changed his “not guilty” plea to “guilty” in February, to 4 felony charges of Unlawful Sexual Intercourse with a Minor; 3 misdemeanor charges of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor and 1 charge of providing lewd material to a minor.

Wilkins was employed in the emergency department at Mayers Memorial Hospital at the time of his arrest in June 2014. He was originally charged with 12 felonies and 4 misdemeanors.

Shasta County Deputy D.A. Sarah Murphy, argued in court for a 9-month sentence, ridiculing the doctor’s testimony that he thought the 16-year-old teenager was older than 21. Superior Court Judge Dan Flynn agreed. “This doctor knew full well what her age was.  He was aware during the relationship she was a minor,” he said. But he still lowered the sentence from 9 months to 7.

A Redding Police Department press release early in the case reported that the girl’s mother came forward, saying she had discovered text messages on her daughter’s cellphone that proved she was involved in a sexual relationship with the doctor.

‘Sex Party Surgeon’ Gets Slap on the Bare Butt; No Jail Time

“Doctor Scott, he was very friendly with us. It was a swingers lifestyle party, which means people, couples had intercourse with each other.  (Undercover officer Cynthia Hurtado)

Dr Andrew Scott Martin

Dr Andrew Scott Martin: your pleasure is only a drawstring away . . . .

“These situations are always appalling for the court to hear. I have zero sympathy for the battle that this doctor has been through, related to being charged with these crimes. He should have understood the law from the beginning, and he should have conducted himself as a doctor who has taken oath to do no harm. I find the circumstances here beyond troubling.” (District Judge Kathleen Delaney)

Doctor Andrew Scott Martin, who hosted drug-laced sex parties in various locations around Las Vegas for years,  has just finished his first year of court-ordered probation.

Martin ended his trial by apologizing to District Judge Kathleen Delaney, admitting that the trial and publicity had been an “embarrassment” to his family as well as his medical reputation.

Jennifer Martin

Martin, now age  48, is an orthopedic surgeon, and had already confessed last March to 3 charges of narcotic possession – all felonies. Of course that came after he had initially insisted he was not guilty of anything.

“I am very sorry that the actions I have taken brought me here today,” Martin said. “I take full responsibility for the decisions I made. I will never put myself, my family or my profession at risk again.”

Martin, a resident of Henderson,  was originally charged with 10 separate drug charges, including 3 counts of trafficking controlled substances. According to the Clark County District Attorney, he could have received a sentence of years in prison, in connection with the sex parties infiltrated by police. But the District Attorney agreed to a rare deal, in which the frisky physician would not be charged for throwing the illegal sex parties.

According to the D.A. the plea deal was accepted because Martin had voluntarily entered substance abuse counseling before he was arrested.

“Eyes Wide Shut” orgy scene

The surgeon, who sex party attendees liked to call “Doctor Scotty,” was arrested last year with his wife, Jennifer, age 36, and 6 other people with connections to the kinky orgies. Investigators report that the Martins routinely hosted sex parties with movie themes – such as the Tom Cruise “Eyes Wide Shut” freak show – often involving as many as 100 couples, tossing back pills and drinks,  snorting cocaine and getting naked.

We suspect the doc was pushing the wrong drugs

 

The surgeon’€™s wife also pleaded guilty to a drug possession charge and paid a $1,000 fine. Two co-organizers – Jaymie Lenz and Jovan Sanita Smith – who were indicted along with the doctor, did the same.

The surgeon had his medical license suspended briefly, but is now back on the job. He was put on ‘probation’ also by the Nevada Medical Board, according to numerous news reports.
