During this physician “disciplining” (lack of) meeting where we held a “peaceful protest”, Pill Mill doctors set free with little to no reprimands to their licenses, a physician who committed automobile insurance fraud was denied reinstatement of his license, and a physician who committed Medicaid fraud had his license reinstated.
Investigative reporter Carmel Cafiero is on the case.
WSVN (Channel 7)– The Florida Board of Medicine has given a license back to a local doctor with multiple DUI’s and a grand theft conviction involving hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars.
So, regardless of the “public health safety issues”, we now have a convicted physician felon practicing medicine in our state. Yes, it appears that if you have an outstanding felony background, you can practice medicine in Florida. Yet, non-physician Floridians, with a felony background can even get a job at McDonald’s.
Alert for FL physicians: do not commit auto insurance fraud because you will loose your medical license, but you can commit Medicaid fraud and still keep your license. And that is how we roll in FL, by NOT “protecting the public health safety of FL citizens”. Any question why FL remains the best state to practice grossly negligent medicine?
FYI, Florida is #1, once again, for the top prescribing/dispensing of Dilaudid (hydromorphone). Pill Mills (Urgent Care Centers) alive and well, just under the radar.
As long as the physician retains their license, this man made(Big Pharm) physician controlled CDC declared fatal narcotic epidemic will continue.
More than 101 physicians who worked at the 189 now closed/administratively revoked/voluntary surrender Broward County “pain management clinics” still have a clear and active medical license.
