That is the rumor that I hear that is why I am trying to get confirmation. It is on the Big G's board saying to bring Jackie back to the clinic.

I heard she is under investigation for prescription drug issues, i.e. prescribing narcotics a bit too liberally?

I didn't know that Jackie was terminated, but it doesn't surprise me. She was my physician for years and was always willing to help out when I was in a bind and couldn't afford the medications that I needed, like blood pressure and depression meds. But in the past few years, she has taken on an "I don't care" attitude and tried to prescribe me LOADS of painkillers, which I refused to accept. She didn't seem interested in getting to the root of my problem and I was forced to switch doctors. Since then, I have found out that I have a brain abcess that could of killed me. All I needed was one test to find it and Jackie wouldn't hear of it.
Plus, there was always the issue that Jackie was rarely there. I can't blame anyone for taking vacations, but my goodness did she take a lot of them! Whenever she was back, it was only for a few days and I could never get appointment because she was so swamped. When I finally did, it became into the issues that I mentioned above.
I have no disrespect for Jackie, but I do feel that if she takes her career seriously, she would be there to help her patients and not send them back out the door with a temporary or unnecessary solution. If she thinks that she needs to take that much vacation time, maybe she should just retire. She is becoming of that age where it's an option.

I hadn't heard about Caney Drug. What I can tell you is a patient who had spinabifida and suffered lifelong horrific pain was told they couldn't have anymore pain meds by Hignight. This person had been Jackies patient. This person really needs pain meds. There are others that have chronic pain that isn't controlled by other meds. Also the AMA claims that arthritis and fibramyalgia are much better controlled by narcotic meds. I am sure there are some people who just want to get high and they ruin it for others that really need pain meds.

I have known Jackie since I was little. She is a good friend of my family. She has always taken care of me when I was sick. Jackie is a good person and a good doctor. Get the facts before you accuse someone!

I loved hignight when he was a physician at Mercy. When my son got really sick he stayed with us all night right beside his bed just in case something happened. He wasn't even our son's doctor.

I talked to her personally and that's not why she was fired. I have better things to do than sit here and argue with you.

Jackie no longer works there. Her patients received a letter stating Caney/Jane phillips clinic no longer treats or prescribe chronic pain patients medications. They will treat your primary care needs but after July 15th forget it.
They will authorize a 30 day refill up to that date but thats it.
Jackie had her chronic pain patients come back every 2 months to check on their beings. Dont remember any other PCP doing that???
Funny how we got a phone call from them (clinic)on Tuesday stating this, and we asked so does that mean we have to find a new dr? Was told yes and the Clinic Is NOT even HONORING their 30 day refill they promised in their letter to the patients.Hmmmmm ...??? They even hung up on me after asking them , so I guess we have to find a new dr? Aint life funny ....
Whats going on? Now several patients are without a PCP or any refills? Not even honoring the refills on blood pressure meds or such...this sux?
Jane Phillips its your Clinic...cmon whats going on????
So I guess if we dont get refills, that means the family dont need bp meds??? ANy one know of any new drs in town or any drs that are taking new patients?

I think I would be suing somebody for sure, especially if bp medication was not refilled as promised via letter...that is a life threatening situation.

I heard from a reliable source that she was giving drugs through Caney Drug to Michael Jackson and that is what killed him.

Also from what I understand Rick Pell and Dale McBride were involved as well. Of course they had to be because you people blame them for everything you don't like.

gimme drugs, LOL! I KNEW they were all involved in MJ's death! Too funny!
Woww, who's arguing? I'm personally glad not to be addicted to pain meds and sorry that a good clinician was fired and sorry for all the people who may have to find other means to get their "meds" now. Truly.

Ummm... just checking but when exactly did Jackie become a doctor? I thought she was just a LPN. I can say for certain that she was a pain med pusher, because she pushed them on me when I really didn't need them. I am glad to have Dr. Hignight here, I hope that when you go to the clinic now they will actually tell you what is wrong with you rather than write you a script for antibiotics and send you on your way... people say, what's wrong with you? you just say I dunno, but I gots me some
an tie byotics yep yep yep

I just want to clarify that LPN's can't prescribe medications to anyone. Jackie is a Nurse Practitioner which is a master's level advanced practice nurse....
