He is one dead quack now! he did many people wrong in his medical practice his license should have been pulled a long time ago. He was going up for 5 malpractices on Wednesday so the coward apparently killed himself. What a nice loss!

He was a very kind man. I don't understand why anyone is so insensitive to such a tragic death. As for the suits against him... this goes on with physicians all the time. In this age of wanting something for nothing unfortunately these suits are filed. I have known him and his family for many years, and they are a wonderful family. My husband was killed tragically in a motorcycle accident 1 1/2 years ago. I got very little compensation from the insurance co and I could have persued law suits with the person whose falt it was. That will not replace a life or the tragidy my children have gone through. I hope those who agree with the comment of the one who calls him a quack and is "so glad" he is dead will someday realize that the Lord loves everyone and would not condone anyone speaking so horribly. If you are not a beleiver then I pray that someday you will be. I love the Pancake family, and even if I didn't, I would surely not throw stones.

I received a terrible breast augmentation job from Dr. Pancake a year ago. He basically told me there was nothing he could do to correct the problem and turned his back. I have been to 2 real plastic surgeons that are members of the board of plastic surgeons they both agree my breast implants have to be redone this will cost up to 9000.00. All together Dr. Pancake cost me about 14,000.00 and not even a apology for mutilating my breast. I have pictures and witnesses to prove it all. I know at least 9 people that have had horrible plastic surgery from Dr. Pancake so I would imagine if there is a hell Dr. Pancake is in it. His death would be a reason to celebrate that he cannot hurt anyone else. God took him because he was greedy and cruel.

In case anyone in his family reads this forum, I just want to assure them that the majority of Dr. P's patients were extremely happy with his work. He received thank you cards, flowers, a zillion Christmas cards, etc from his patients that truly were happy and loved Dr. Pancake. Every doctor faces this type of scrutiny, especially plastic surgeons - don't let this type of hate affect the image of your dad/husband.

I had no knowledge of Dr. Pancake's patient affairs, but with such hostility being expressed from more than one person, wow, I'm glad I didn't know him. Certainly, all doctors have patients who complain, some complaints being legitimate and some not so much, but this sounds unusual to me.

I agree with A Friend in Hixson,TN. Dr Pancake was a great doctor. I went to him for several years and truly loved him. He was the most caring doctor I knew. As we are all outsiders we do not need to judge! I can't believe some of these postings. My thoughts and prayers are with Debbie and his family.

Dr. Pancake performed nose surgery on me several years ago and my nose is huge just to look at it is all the proof you need that he was a quack and I have trouble breathing. His response was about the same to me as the other patients.. Nothing was done to correct my nose nor did he apologize.

Ok maybe the man made some mistakes and messed up a few things, but nobody is perfect. Still life is precious and the ones on here casting stones are just as bad. Whatever he did is done, nothing can be done about it. So forgive and move on....He still had a family that loved him...and I am really sorry that they had to loose him.....People are so damn insensitive these days worrying about themselves! Be respectful. It doesnt make any sense how rude some people are....this is tragic and I send out prayers of comfort and peace during this time.

To all those people that Dr Pancake hurt, I am sorry that happened.

But to wish somebody dead and to be so hateful, does not make you a better person.

He was obviously hurting from the problems and lawsuits.

Instead of bashing him you all need to pray for his family. They are greving his death not matter how it happened.

God knows his heart and god will be the judge.

I dont think we were put on this planet ot judge people that we dont know so leave that to god. I hear he was a very nice and honest person. If he made some mistakes so what, everyone does. The people who have had plastic surgeries and they are not satisfied with it, well they will never be satisfied because thats just their nature or else they would of not gone for a plastic surgery in the first place.
My condolences to his family, sorry you have to go through this painful moment.

He never corrected his mistakes my nose job was to help me breath better not look better Dr. Pancake ruined the looks and use of my nose. If you go to the web link where they post why he ws going before the Medical Board you will see that he made some big mistakes and they were surgeries for medical reasons not to look better.

It is quite obvious that you are a very bitter person. Celebrating any death is horrific.
You mention that Dr. Pancake was greedy and cruel while all along your post was about the money you have spent on your breast augmentation. I have always been told that "a guilty dog always barks first" and you sound guilty of greed to me.
Who are you to say why God took Dr. Pancake? You have over stepped the boundaries of a civilized person. I will pray for you. You need it!

I work for a physican who has never had one lawsuit. Patients should not be forced to file suit to get a doctor to apologize for a mistake. we need to pray for everyone involved in this tragedy, all of the victims who have not only have physical but enotional scars from being ruined by plastic surgery gone bad. We also need to pray for the Pancake family because how would you feel if you were in his shoes and your child stumbled upon this site and read that people had wrote horrific things like... glad he is dead. When God hears people speak like that... He weeps. Why is their soul so full of hatered and bitterness. Every person has their faults but we are not his judge. His family needs community support in this most tragedgic time. I am going to pray for everyone who has posted horrible comments on this site. I will also pray for all of his victims may the lord heal your emotion and physical scars.

Also as working for a physician.. when you are getting something major done ex..breast augments and nose jobs...lipo, facial lifts I would check first with American Board of plactic surgeons. People should always check physicians credentials. You have a choice in the matter. Be an responsible patient and check.

Dr. Pancake did some ear and throat surgery on me...I'd had ear infections all my life and was always getting sick. He did the surgery in 2002 and I've not had a thrat or ear infection since. He was very concerned about my healing process and saw me a few times after the surgery to be sure everything was okay. When I had a little blood/scab buildup in one of my ears (normal), he saw me quickly and removed it for me at no cost.

I think anyone who goes out and seeks unnecessary surgery (implants) is far too stuck on the exterior.

I had a good experience with Dr. Pancake and my heart goes out to his family.

Rumors are Dr. Pancake has a severe cocaine habit and overdosed then there is more speculation that he committed suicide. Does anyone know the conclusion on how Dr. Pancake died?

Dr. Pancake was the most wonderful person that I have met in several years. He restored my faith in men in general. If I could find a man as sweet and caring as Dr. Pancake I'd grab him up for myself.

I will miss him greatly.

My sincere wishes to his wife and children and to all that loved him in life.
