Old patient you are right Erica doesn't know shit about anyone or anything.Erica you should get all the detail straight first before running your mouth you moron.If you were so concerned about your husband why didn't you change his doctor right away.Mrs Erica ask his employees that he has there now to see if they tell you the truth about what was going on? Most of them know.

Ok why do you think watering down a drug killed them are you a doctor?? And just because the FDA and other doctors say it does not make it so. I am not a Doctor But I do know about anything that is put in the body that you and I cannot have the same amounts in our bodies for many reasons. Just because you are told that he watered it down does not mean it was a bad thing maybe not watering down would have hurt the patient worse you do not know you cannot know you were not there you were not the Doctor that had all of the information and it still does not guarantee that anyway would have help so stop and think you do not have all of the facts and even then it is according to the Drug companies in this country that have absolute power because they are in it to make money not to really help people if so then they would be more natural med minded and be willing to let Natural medicine to exist with out their fingers in it.

And yes he is nice by the way how many people have you help in your life from your pocket??? yes people die no one can keep us from dying and whether you have cancer or not your going to die sooner or later all we can hope for is to stretch out that time only if God allows it.

What about those that Dr Pat gave his watered down, expired, smuggled drugs to that might have died from his actions! I don't call that a loving, caring, nice doctor! I know that someone died from it! The main stream news articles said so! Do u still think he's nice? I think he's a murder! Vengence is mine sayth the Lord! It's up to the lord what he gets!

As I read through all these posts what is most apparent is the passion and intensity displayed both for and against Dr Pat.

With this in mind, then, it's so sad to see that a doctor -- who's touched the lives of so many people here in Southern California -- end his long career on such a negative. At his age (66 I believe) any meaningful time in prison is sure to be a death sentence.

I've read in more than one post that he provided medication for free to those who could not afford it. While that is certainly commendable, why could Dr Pat not do so with FDA-approved medicine?

Clearly, this is an example of what's wrong with our broken health care system, and why we should all support the President in his attempt to provide coverage for all.

OK -- NO - we should NEVER support a government run health care system. You have NO idea what you are asking for andthis is not the forum for this discussion. Do your research -- the government can't handle Social Security without it going broke, they did give $20.1 Million dollars to let Palestinians move to this country for FREE and get FREE housing, FREE money and FREE health care and FREE everything -- what about our Veterans????? When was the last time you were in a Veteran's Hospital?? Not even Class C !!! LEAVE THE GOVERNMENT OUT OF HEALTH CARE !!!

Besides all that, send donations to Dr. Pat if you want him to pay even MORE money for free medicines to indigent patients -- oops, I almost forgot, no one ever even helped him pay for the ones he gave away that were a little cheaper ...

When will we know if Dr. Pat will lose or retain his Medical License?
I will always trust Dr. Pat with my life since he, with God's help, is the reason I am still alive and writing this today. Dr. Pat has a gift for healing and should be able to continue.
Yes he made mistakes but who among us has not?

I would just like to say that immigrant professional are a need of the American economy and this country is built by them too !!!!
In case of Dr Patwardhan I know him personally and he is such a principled and kind guy, I find it hard to believe that he ever hurt his patients. He is one of the immigrants that help society than the converse!!
Good luck to him and hope he comes out of this mess.

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.
Dont Judge the whole Iundian Community on 1 persons mistake and India is not filthy, it is one of the most powerfull country in software and technology.I consider this a racial comment not all Indian doctors are same.I disagree.USA does not belong to 1 race it is country of immigrants

I have the up most respect for Dr. Pat and his staff. In fact, the staff that he has now is 10x better then the staff he used to have prior to this. I can tell that him and Holly care greatly about their patients. I am going through various tests right now and he is very reassuring that everything will be ok. He must have NOT done something that bad since he still practices medicine, so for all you haters go F off!!!

Dr Pat helped me through the worse time of my life (thyroid cancer), both medically and psychologically, with caring and was willing to spend as much time as needed to answer all of my questions. I don't care about the allegation and politics, IMO Dr Pat is the best doc ever. Thank you.

Dr. Pat is the most kind, compassionate, caring and knowledgeable doctor I've ever met. My whole family including myself and especially my mom would not allow anyone else to treat her but him. He takes the time to listen to his patients and their needs. He doesn't put priority on HIS MONEY, HIS TIME, HIS NEEDS over his patients unlike most doctors.

Dr. Pat cured my mom from breast cancer and is now helping her with her lung cancer. I have met hundreds of doctors in my lifetime but none ever like Dr. Patwardhan.

It's unfortunate that he's gotten in trouble with the Medical Board and the Courts but even with all the accusations, we will always support Dr. Pat because of the great and unselfish human being that he is.

Note to all the rude people who are commenting without knowing what really happened, READ THE COURT TRANSCRIPTS!...and to those people "who worked with him", shame on you!...and to those who wonder if he's still practicing, YES, he is!... Dr. Pat is currently licensed by the CA Medical Board and he's not in jail!

Dr. Pat, is no longer performing surgeries! I see most of these posts are from CA. It is unfortunate that your state did not stop him before he destroyed the lives of 330+. If you follow this link:

http://www.ktbs.com/story/22315286/doctor-ord...

You can see that his license has been cancelled permanently!

His insurance is settling most claims because evidence is irrefutable. My Spouse had surgery by him that was completed in less than 30 minutes with 3 disks being fused together and this surgery is usually 3+ hours to perform. Everyone that is defending him should think again, before giving your opinion for a man that has become greedy and immoral to the oath he swore "to do no harm".
