Default saw my pdoc in the local paper ....

remember now he "runs" a substance abuse center ... he has some older patients like myself with "regular" mental issues ...

he was pdoc of the year last year ... article hangs on his wall and a nice glass trophy in the waiting room ...

remember as I have told you in the past we have had some real arguments in the past with yelling and such ...

well it appears 4 years ago he "punched a women " ... three years ago he "punched a patient" ... and was put on probation ...

I knew none of this ... in december he "drug his ex-wife out of a car and slammed the door on her ... it appears he is going back before the board ...

anger management with possibe "abuse issues ?" was the statement in the paper where all this info comes from ...

wow ... no matter what he has done I still want him as my pdoc ... but I am afraid he may loose his licence or be suspended for a while ... it is begining to cause anxeity ... and I worry about a different pdoc and my rx which is very good right now ... change is the last thing I want ...

thought you guys might get a kick out of this ... of course non of this is funny to me ... could use your good thoughts .... I really feel sorry for him as this has gone public ...

How awful. If I found out my pdoc had either behaved in a criminal manner or been criminally charged I wouldn’t feel safe. I’d drop her like a hot potato.

I couldn't trust a pdoc that can't control himself.

You have known this man a lot longer and a lot more deeply than some cub reporter in the media, so I would say to step back and trust your own instincts. The media are not known these days for their in-depth capacities of investigation. I've had US friends tell me stuff about Europe that was printed in US media which was close to being absolute fiction. If your gut feeling is to trust this therapist, then trust him and trust your gut feeling.

The only good therapist who I ever had was also a controversial figure: within her profession people hated or adored her. We meet and trust people in our lives for a reason. If you need support and reassurance around this - especially around his continued status as a professional - don't feel guilty about asking for it.

I think that you will find that doctors who are challenged in their profession, especially mature experienced doctors, often find support among their peers and colleagues who live with the same personal and professional pressures. If you need backup, you might want to ask your doctor if he has a supportive colleague who you could discuss all of this with. You don't have to protect your therapist, and you do have responsibility for looking after yourself and taking care of your own needs.

Of course this is horribly distressing, and although you may feel supportive in the short-term you may also feel angry with your therapist for how this may disrupt your therapy. It's ok, we all human and everyone is vulnerable to making a mistake and then being hounded by the media. Please do what you need to reassure yourself in this situation, and trust that your therapist is big enough to fight his own battles.


Best wishes to you! Saidso

I’ve had this issue before with my pain management doc. Office raided twice due to complaints about opioids. I haven’t had issues with him and my RF procedures on my back work well. He also doesn’t prescribe opioids to me, which I appreciate because I lose sleep and go manic on them.

If you’re comfortable with your pdoc stick with him. If you don’t ask for a colleague. We’re all human and imperfect, even pdocs.
