Dr Donald was a doctor who helped alot of people.When I could not afford to go to my family doctor for a cold he would examine me and give me antibiotics to help me out. Dr. Donald was a great doctor with a big heart and helped alot of us who were suffering from chronic pain. He was always there to greet you with a smile and hug. I am extremely sad that someone as good as him could be so unfairly prosecuted.
I agree, He had been treated very unfair he is a Great person.

I went to Dr Donald 2 maybe 3 times after Katrina. The first time or 2 he was awesome to me. The third time this guy freaked out on for NO reason, and threatened to physically attack me, and I swear on my daughter he did this!! Thank god my wife was with me, and also saw this. Not 2 months later he was shut down, so I'd say it was Karma as well that got him.

He tried to also tell me that I was being recorded and that there was a DEA agent in his office at all times!!! I then informed him that I was an ex police officer in New Orleans, and to try and sell that to some of the white trash he had in the waiting room. After this he got a very different tone and apologized for it, after I faxed a letter to his office with excerpts from the Hippocratic oath. I then reported him to various law enforcement agencies for this unprofessional behavior.

To me it looked like he had "small man complex" and was maybe having some steroid rage at the time, because he was so nice the times before. Like I said a cpl months later my workers com attorney who knew him, told me he got arrested. I had told him what happened right after it did, and we still may take action.

I hope that prison address is the same because I am writing him tonight to let him know how awful he made me feel. Thanks god I am in a good pain mgmt program now!!!

Well its not who you know, it's called taking the rap. Self sacrifice. Doc is awesome guy. Unless you know him, you have no idea what you are talking about. Everything he got arrested for was to help someone out. EVERYTHING!!!

Have you EVER done anything wrong? With that, would you consider yourself a good person? He really is a good person, just got a little too trusting.

I was a patient there for a brief period of time and got to know Donald Auzine. There is a difference between being a nice person, which he was, and not being a good doctor. That is an understatement - he was a horrible doctor. He pleaded guilt because he was guilty and was caught red handed. It is one thing to prescribe medications liberally, but to be selling XTC and weed - you've got to be kidding me. He did the crimes, now he is doing the time!!
He is out now

Come on, the guy was selling scripts and doing so very obviously. He advertised himself in pain clinic hotlines, he prescribed incredibly high quantities (more than were legitimately needed by the patients), and he profited from this. He had the opportunity to do these things and needed the money, the thrill, or whatever else... so he did it. It's documented, that's why there's a CASE. No, that doesn't automatically mean he was a bad person. No, it doesn't mean he didn't also help many people and I'm sure he helped many in his community, but you people sitting here insulting anybody saying anything other than "he was an angel!" are nothing but children. In fact, I could absolutely guarantee that based on IP addresses alone several of these posts are from the same person trying to mimic the "opinion" of more than one individual. Also, I quote somebody saying,

"I'm thinking your Vietnamese and probably got a free education on tax payers expense..."

...as a "retort" to somebody who made a firm, non-vulgar, non-insulting factual comment regarding the situation. First of all, the word you were looking for is "you're" so you really shouldn't be commenting on anybody's education. Since you clearly paid so much for your extravagant schooling perhaps you should inquire regarding a refund. Second, you reply with a random racist comment displaying what a complete bigot you most likely are. People like you give honest, good Louisiana citizens a bad name. You not liking what somebody has to say does not make their statement any less relevant, and I'd easily take the word of a pharmacist regarding MEDICATIONS BEING FILLED over somebody who's immediate reaction to any form of confrontation is to say "Well you're probably a member of [insert race] and have [insert insult regarding poor education]."

People can make mistakes. Anybody saying this doctor was incapable of making mistakes is a fool. There is no grand conspiracy against him. Unfortunately, even if he is the nicest man in the world and has helped countless people it does not make a crime any less of a crime. If I sold drugs to your child to make a profit would you be any less upset with me because I also tutored kids on Sundays? Saying "he performed this act of kindness" or "I know him and he helped me" means NOTHING. Fantastic, he did good deeds. He also made very poor decisions, this one specifically, and if proven guilty in a court of law he DESERVES to pay the price. If he is acquitted, more power to him and I absolutely wish him the best of luck.

That's the end of the debate. There is no debate, in fact it's a mockery to even refer to this as one. This is why we have a legal system. This is why you people are, thankfully, not a part of it. I'm ashamed to share a community with some of you people, people who wouldn't dare speak the way you do about others without the pathetic guise of internet anonymity. Grow some balls and dish it out in real life instead of walking through it with a fake smile plastered on your face and see how far it gets you.

I hope you all and your families are safe, fed, and comfortable during the upcoming storm.
