It is just unbelievable that Dr. Toolsie is allowed to practice in any state not just TN. Word has it he just went to GA after his many acts of violation in the state of TN. Why can't these border states communicate with each other. He is more than likely doing the same thing in Ga.
State health Boards regulate the discipline of Doctors, Dentists, Nurses and the like. Not only are these boards mostly comprised of their own kind, but much of the law administered by these boards is well over one-hundred years old. When a medical professional becomes licensed, in any state, that medical professional can do “medically anything he wants to do” until someone files a complaint with that respected board,. Example; Dr. Pancake butchered patients for ten years and no one did a damn thing to stop him. Upon his suicide, the Tennessee State Board promptly dropped all claims and simply closed the case, never asking once how this did happen for such a period.

Some may think this thought to be a bit hokey, but it’s the simple truth. In exchange for our collective trust, the entire medical establishment is based on policing itself. All one needs to do is read any medical oath. Additionally, these hundred-year old laws are based on this fact. Every state has laws which clearly say; if a state licensed medical professional has knowledge of harm being brought to a patient by another licensed individual they must report it. When their respective oaths were given, each one swore to uphold it.

With that said, why are the doctors who treated Pancakes patients, Dr. Shabo’s or any other injured patients not speaking up and honoring their respective oaths, that my friend is the QUESTION!

I am curious, how do you know he moved to GA?? Do you know if he is practicing? I am a concered lets just say... former family member.... I thought he would move there because I was aware that his license was still valid there. I know all too well about the charges aginst him and am sad to have witnessed his rise than fall from grace. thanx for any info you may be able to provide.

Whom ever is censoring information, screwed this one up last month. I believe this was the day the Shabo thread was removed or at least hidden somewhere... Proven by the post above, very sloppy censorship in my book!

The above post is misleading/wrong.

Raymond J. Enzenauer, is the doctor who had his medical license suspended, been insitutionalized twice and appears to "like" childern. I believed he practiced in Cleveland, TN.

However, his twin brother,Robert W. Enzenauer, M.D was the one recently scantioned by the state on Colorado.

Dr. John C. Wood of Chattanooga, TN- Is a very unprofessional physician. His bedside manner leaves alot to be disires. Everytime i have a doc appt. he has a different nures working for him. This has to be a testimony to his personality. There is no compassion with this man. He actually told me that his nurse didn't know how to take my bloodpressure. How unprofessional is that. He got very mad at me when I declined to take the prescription medicine Crestor for my cholesterol. He was very rude at that pointe. To all that is reading this- my professional opinion regarding Dr. John C. Wood "Control Freak"

Good news no local doctors reported. However, there are several issues worthy of notice. Six placed on Probation: Three M.D. licensed revoked, Four M.D. licensed suspended.(One sexually related) Five M.D. licensed were placed on probation. The rest were education related and failure to pay taxes.

(Hummmm….I wonder if Dr. Shabo’s property taxes have been paid yet?)

Then, to top things off, there was this person: Naveed A. Khan, Unlicensed Knoxville, Tenn. Violation: Action taken by state of Alabama, New York and Georgia. Action: Cease and desist any conduct that is considered the practice of medicine; assessed $500 civil penalty, plus costs. This bastard did not even have a ticket and has most likely done this in other states too.

Remember what "Doctor Bob" said: pay close attention to those DO’s educated outside the US… I'm think that ment avoid them at all cost!

We find Dr. John C. Wood very professional and believe he is compassionate and competent. He seems genuinely concerned for our well-being. My husband is 65 years old and NEVER received the kind of care that we've gotten this year from Dr. Wood when we lived in LA. O.K., so he likes to do things his way and in a certain order; but, he takes his time, is thorough, addresses all of our concerns and has answered all of our questions (and telephone calls). And from what I understand, his nurse was with him for MANY years and just recently retired.

This is this good doctors second time before the board, that Ive found. The first time the board said this:His bad behavior could "adversely affect a person’s ability to practice medicine" but yet, it appears he is still allowed to practice medcine anyway!

Mark T. Simpson, M.D., Chattanooga, Tenn.
Violation of board order Action:
Probation extended five years from current probation; must meet certain terms and conditions; assessed cost.

Below is what I believe to be his first violation, it was posted in June of 08 on Topix. However, I'm not sure when the board actually heard his case

Mark T. Simpson, MD Violation: Unprofessional, dishonorable or unethical conduct; and habitual intoxication or personal misuse of any drugs or the use of intoxicating liquors, narcotics,
controlled substances or other drugs or stimulants in such manner as to adversely affect a person’s ability to practice medicine
Action: Suspension Stayed; placed on probation for no less than five (5) years; must
meet certain terms and conditions; and assessed costs.

You mean this dirt bag; "Another former Tennessee medical examiner, Dr. Ronald Toolsie, was indicted on drug charges on October 28, 2009; he was accused of defrauding a company to obtain and distribute prescription drugs, including tranquilizers, diet pills and pain medication.

Toolsie’s medical license had been suspended earlier in 2009 following an unrelated investigation into unprofessional or unethical conduct related to the autopsy of a 14-month-old girl. He determined the child had been sexually assaulted and died after being shaken. Two other pathologists found that neither was true and the girl had drowned. Dr. Toolsie had worked as the medical examiner for Bradley County and for Southeastern Pathology Associates in Chattanooga."
