    The only criticism that the court had against this 84 year old GP is that she was technically behind in reporting her pain-killer Rx. They didn't take into account that she'd been providing a hugely valuable service to her patients by screening them for serious problems and recommending specialists. Taking her license to practice is a serious breach of contract between the state which issues the license and the practitioner who is entitled to it.

    On an entirely different track, there were some posters who lamented the lip service that they say their doctors substitute in lieu of actual care. Get a new doctor or tell the one you have that you'd like to be treated as a unique case.(we are all unique)
    Over the past twenty or so years, my physicians, PAs, NPs, nurses and techs at the various VA medical centers I've used have all, with perhaps one exception, been 'hands on' medicos who actually spend the time and effort to look in my eyes, ears, down my throat and up my wazoo. I have had NO problems with the VA and would recommend that all veterans who are eligible sign up and get on their roll.

      Except that prescription painkiller abuse is extremely high, and in in epidemic levels on the East Coast. So Granny MD's failure to tell the government where her meds are going suggests that she may be hiding a second sources of income.

      Keep in mind she Voluntarily surrendered her license when the DEA started sniffing around. Now she's asking for it back.

        Nah - she's like my wife - too busy and dedicated to her calling that she has unfortunately fallen into that hole of the technically illiterate and saw no reason to fix something that wasn't broke.

          Nope. Colonoscopies start at 50. FUBs (Finger Up Butt/Prostate Exam) start at 40.

            Getting a new doctor, especially for those over 65, is nearly impossible in many parts of America, and FYI - the "hands-off approach to medicine has permeated the military system as well.

              But it is broken. She was required by law to report the issuance of narcotics, and she failed (or refused) to comply with the law. When the investigation got too close, she surrendered her license.

              Now that it looks like the coast is clear, she wants it back.

              The court made a good call.

              That is a very good system tracking the issuance of narcotics; we've been calling for it for years, and it is finally going into place.

                  You can tell you're a cop.

                  They go after doctors for this fine and good- but yet they block investigation into the company that distributes the most opioids in the USA.

                  War on drugs, what a waste of money.

                    I won't go that far, but the advanced tracking of painkillers has been showing considerable promise in impacting the epidemic of opiate issues that are plaguing the USA.

                    That and redefining Oxy to a higher category drug.

                    Getting incompetent or criminally-inclined MDs out of the way is just a positive side effect.

                    This is a perfect example of choosing to be part of the solution, or the problem.

                      but was she incompetent or criminal both seem not to be the case.

                      and nice recovery I thought you had done a good job of painting yourself in to a corner

                        I'm nimble.

                        Given that failing to submit the reports is a felony, had she not surrendered her license initially she certainly would have been facing criminal charges.

                          oh no you don't

                          your making paper work which makes her a criminal not that she was a criminal before.

                          This is one of those stupid laws I hate

                          fair or equal is always the choice of laws I always prefer fair laws to equal laws.

                          This is one of those equal laws which is always a sign of big government.

                            No, my sap-snorting friend, it is not. This is one of those rarities: a law which actually works, is needed, and gives one hope.

                            The current heroin epidemic the US is experiencing has it's origins in doctors pushing Oxycontin and similar major pain killers too readily, and a certain percentage of the medical industry being far too liberal (or commercial) with their prescription pads.

                            As you may know, Oxycontin (aka hillbilly heroin) is highly addictive and very popular; addicts generally transition to heroin after starting on oxy.

                            After years of campaigning by LE agencies across the country, the DEA and the Feds finally took steps: they moved oxy to a more restricted status, and they required the states to actively track the painkillers in all inventories, and to prosecute any MD who does not comply. Distribution of controlled substances being a privilege, not a right.

                            The result is the first signs of an ebb in the tsunami of heroin ODs and deaths. As with any program, it takes time to build into a truly effective system, but it is getting there.

                            And this case is a poster child for the good it is doing. I don't know if Granny MD is too incompetent or just liked selling oxy. but either way in order to hold an MD license she must report where every tab of the high-voltage painkillers is or went.

                            Now the point the article does not mention, is that she does not have to do the computer log work herself. However, she must sign off on the monthly report, and if the numbers are off or fraudulent, it's a prison she'll be going.

                            So this is not about computer skills, this is about an MD wanted her license returned (after she voluntarily surrendered it) while stating she will not comply with the law. She wants to hand out painkillers without responsibility or accountability.

                            But she won't be.
