Doctors Cleared Four Years After Federal, State Investigation Began

http://www.pharmaciststeve.com/?p=10588

Two Jay doctors say they have been cleared of any wrongdoing, four years after their medical practice became the focus of a federal and state investigation and they were forced to surrender their licenses to prescribe narcotics.

Back in July 2011, the FBI, federal Drug Enforcement Agency, the Attorney General’s Office, the Florida Department of Health and Florida Department of Law Enforcement raided the Jay Medical Clinic Thursday as Florida Highway Patrol troopers stood guard outside the complex, which is located next to Jay Hospital. Federal and state agents seized patient records from Dr. C. David Smith and his son Dr. J. S. Michael Smith.

Now, Dr. David Smith says they have been cleared by the U.S. Attorney’s Office…

Doesn’t really help all the patients who were denied access to healthcare because of this raid. And patients who were unable to obtain their records because they were seized by law enforcement.  It’s difficult to find another doctor if you don’t have your medical records, especially if your doctor’s office was raided and you’re now guilty by association. By the way, where are all those records today?

  1. its sickening, disgusting that they can do that not just to the docs but the patients and then all this time later say, oh well, we were wrong. and its supposed to make it all better…but it doesn’t. the damage is done and can’t be undone, both for the docs and the patients. and you ask where are the patient records now…that is indeed the question, isn’t it?
