Ok I am getting sick of you putting Jessica down, if you really know as much as you state then you would know that Jessica was arrested as well, and she rcv'd probation for her involvement. She is continuing to pay for her mistakes.

I have been a patient of Dr. Patwardhan, And he is a very good compassionate, kind doctor. He is the reason I am alive . God bless him.
ARE YOU INSANE? PATWHARDEN IS ONLY A MAN. HE ISN'T GOD. GOD IS THE REASON YOU ARE ALIVE YOU IDIOT. NOT BECAUSE OF A CROOKED DOCTOR.

Yes I do -- I know more about him than most people on here EVER will -- and I know he is not a liar. You just need to get a life and yes - get out of the box moron.

I will tell all of you that you are all wrong about Dr Patwardhan -- I worked for him for 7 years -- his patients loved him -- he cared more for his patients than himself -- I was his administrator and know him better than any of you EVER will -- I know his kids and wife and know where all of them are now (grown !! not still getting music lessons) and I know that he on MANY occasions treated patients who were indigent ( for the ex office manager that means POOR -- remember karma - what goes around, comes around).
I never seen him refuse care to a patient because they had nothing -- it is impossible for me to believe that he would harm a patient. And for the rest who want to go back to the times when he 'practiced without a license'- I was there then too and stood by him through it all until he won that case and got his license back for your information.
Get off your high horses and live the real life and understand that not everyone can turn a blind eye to people in need like you can. I have a deep felt love for Dr Patwardhan and his entire family - he always cared for me and my family as if we were his own.
I am neither uneducated, indigent or of foreign decent. I am an American who knows the laws of the land from my 8 years of professional education. I stand behind him and the fact that he is innocent of wrong-doing until proven guilty -- you want to bad mouth him and say he should be kicked out -- what do you stand up for?? Certainly not the rights of people in this country -- in this country,'arrested' does not equal 'guilty'-- Oh the day when your rights are trampled on and you are claimed 'guilty' before a trial of your peers. Hopefully in that day, they will be able to find 12 people and a few reserves who still have good moral sense and can speak and understand English to try you in court and hopefully for all of you one of those is not his ignorant ex-office manager who can't write a whole sentence in proper English unlike the very well educated physician that they are tearing down - the one who speaks and writes perfect English and one who knows medicine and lives and breaths medicine.
You people really need to get a job and a life and stop taking your lack of ability to achieve out on anyone else who does. All of you need to take a step back and get all the facts -- maybe you would change your mind then.
Like I said before - there is no one on here who knows Dr Patwardhan better than me except Shobha - who I haven't seen in 17 years.

To whoever this is obviously you are one to believe every thing that you hear and do not know what you are talking about. I have known this man for years and I would have him as my doctor before any of those that only go by the FDA or the DEA that are in the drug company pockets they want to poison you with their drugs that more often cause more problems than help and have been trying to close down every natural thing that will help just because there is no drug study done by an official dug company notice the it has to be a drug company that has millions of dollars to get a natural vitamin or mineral to where it can be used to help those of us that have been sick for years. And every time we find something that helps the FDA with all of its wisdom closes it down along with the doctors that tried to show it's helpfulness.
Now in regards to Dr. Pat doing this for Profitable gain obviously does not know him nor has ever met him and if you have and say this about him are absolute liars. this man has on many occasions has helped his Patients for free in one way or another many times I have witnessed this so before you go off the wall as many I see have here get your facts straight and stop believing every thing the government says the system is set up to keep us all sick of this I am sure because of my own situation of trying to deal with a disease that only doctors like Dr. Pat cared enough to go against the standard in the same way as Louie Pasture did to help others the medical world hated him just as they do any doctor that goes against their standard and even more so when it works and God for bid if it happens not to then everyone jumps on the band wagon to say see we told you he was a quack.
in every quack there is a genius because it is easier to call them a qauck than to verify if what they are doing really works
I am Honored to have met him almost 25 years ago and would go to him for medical help in a heart beat and I doubt he will do this but if they take his license away I hope he leaves this country and goes to where they will accept his help I will miss him but will know that His genius is being used by those that really want it

What is with the Indian doctors breaking the law and doing illegal things to make themselves more money while harming and ruining the lives of their patients??? In the Vegas Indian owned Endoscopy Cliniques, more than 40,000 patients were exposed to hepatitis and HIV b/c the owners were trying to save money by reusing needles and viles! http://www.cnn.com/2008/HEALTH/02/28/vegas.he...
What about the oath these doctors took to : "Do no harm, and to Not administer Unsafe drugs" ?? They want to come into this country and make it as filthy and as diseased ridden as their homeland?
Do these doctors even have a conscience? What is up with America's lack of regulation in the medical sector. There is more oversight for cat and dog food.
I was mutilated and deformed by an alcoholic surgeon. Doctors need to be regulated -- they need to be drug tested and psychologically evaluated. There needs to be a checks and balance system in the field of medicine -- nurses and staff can not cover up for their bosses and coworker who are harming patients!!! Isn't anyone concerned with the patient's best interest??
Aren't doctors supposed to help people, not harm them while making their wallets fatter? America's health care sytem is a disgrace. Instead of protecting patients -- it protects greedy, unethcial, money hungry quacks.

Furthermore, if Norma was so damned concerned about the drugs harming patients, why didnt she say something to us? She helped him to administer drugs that she thought were capable of harming my husband? What punishment is she getting for that? She better never cross my path or it won't be pretty. Who is going to hire her knowing that she is an easy payoff?
Hi Erika, u dont know the whole story and stop talking shit about his ex-employee. You should get all the facts before opening your big mouth. Some employee's know what was going on in the office and they are still working there, you should watch out for them!!!!!
