If you are a patient then why don't you call and ask and if not how about minding your own business..........Are you worried you won't be able to get you dope?

this is very true! Not only was their license pulled but they were taken to jail. This was brought about because they gave too many drugs to a girl and she overdosed and died and her parent sought legal action which led to the FBI getting involved

You and me both. They are too many depending on these doctors to keep up their habit and not only that they depend on the income that it brings also so that they can try and live like The Jones's. It's ashame that these 20 year old kids can get prescribed prescriptions that people on their dying bed cannot get that actually need it.

To say he was the biggest problem to this area is ridiculous. PEOPLE CHOOSE TO DO DRUGS! You can't blame their decision to use drugs on someone else even the doctors who prescribe them. If you wish to go that far with it, you would have to ban the narcotic prescriptions all together through the whole country to where no doctor can prescribe it. But we can't do that now can we? The problem lies within the individual who makes the decision to abuse a drug. Now how do we help that? Lock this doctor up? No, because you know why? ADDICTS WILL ALWAYS FIND A WAY TO GET IT E EN IF IT MEANS REPLACING ONE DRUG ADDICTION WITH ANOTHER. We all know the lengths they go to get it! So blame the doctor if you want, he is not really the problem. And you'll see what i'm talking about when all these ppl that were seeing him go somewhere else to get it or buy it off the street or replace it with some other drug. The war on drugs is useless, its the biggest waste of money going back for 30 years and they will never win the war against drugs by just locking up people. The justice system is the biggest industry in this country, its all about money, they don't give a rat's azz about spending most of the drug war money on helping ppl get off their addictions. No, most prisons are run by private institutions who profit from this and since 85 percent of inmates are there on drug charges, they would lose too much business if the money was actually spent to get ppl off drugs.

Thank God, Ifor one, had enough common sense to realize that if I continued to injest the quantity of drugs prescribed to me by him, I to would be considered a "suicide" victim, because that is what was happening to me, slowly but surely... digging my own grave. I'm sure my husband and children would rather see me in pain than visit my grave and only see a concrete tombstone.

Amen and my hat goes off to you....hey in DC that posted a comment just recently. You hit the nail on the head. This war on drugs is a bunch of bs. Instead of the FEDS keeping such close tabs on the doctors and prosecuting them for doing their jobs, they need to have these patients (or druggies) that are fraudulently receiving these medications looking over their shoulders and shaking in their boots. If a person knew that they would have jail time hanging over their head for receiving a medication that they intend on making a profit from or using it to get high then I am sure problems like this would occur less frequently. This doctor was just doing his job. He is a very caring and compassionate doctor. I am sure if the comment above has any truth to it for the reason his license was "temporaily suspended" then there is also alot more to this that has not been brought to surface. This doctor is not going to prescribe anything to anyone that either #1) they weren't already receiving from their PCP or family doctor or #2)states they have not already taken a certain medication (for quite some time) and they are tollerant to it....with documentation. Remember people, a referral from a PCP or family doctor has to be made in order for someone to get set up with pain management. The reason a referral is made is either because their current treatment is not working or their doctor cannot continue treatment for some reason. Dr Salerian does not just hand out scripts to anyone that waltzes in his office. You have to have a ligitimate issue regarding pain, a referral from your current doctor treating you, and your records/documentation dating back 2 years. The records and documentation has to come directly from your doctor and has to be reviewed before they will schedule you an appointment. You cannot just bring it in or send it to them yourself....if it doesn't come directly from your doctor they will not accept it. Even after you have your information submitted you are not guarenteed to be treated. Your condition has to be significant or disabling enough to be seen at this clinic. I can assure anyone that the patients I saw in the waiting room are patients that need truly need pain management. Their disabilities are clearly visible. I do not know where these rumors come out where this doctor is just in it for the money, or he over-prescribes. This again is just absurd. I can tell you first hand that there are people out here that need pain meds to get out of bed and to live a normal productive life. Not all pain patients are drug addicts. Not everyone that takes pain medication does so to get high. Some people do have disabling ilnesses, injuries, or diseases that are able to live life again because pain meds help them do that. Shame on anyone that uses them in any other way. Thes people that abuse them or sale them should be prosecuted...mot the doctors trying to help. I will say this time and time again...if the government was as strict on the addicts and people falsifying information to obtain these medications as they are the doctors I do not think this would be such a big issue. I agree 100% with the comment above....the problem is with the people that choose to do wrong with these medications. It is not the doctor's fault they trusted the patient and tried their best to help a person who was sick or in pain. I cannot say this enough....prosecute the addicts and dealers!!

To set the record straigt, the medications I received were properly administered by myself. I sat in the same waiting room observing people who came and went. Tho' I do not proclaim to be a Dr., on my many visits I observed a completly different scenerio than you spoke of, which in turn caused me to question what was really going on there. A big HAHA goes out to you for stating that the physicians are a minority as to the blame. Weekly newspapers proves this false, the majority "going down" are people who trusted their caregivers thus, for some, creating a never-ending spiral of events, whether it be taking a medication that they quickly become immune to or, for such a large percentage, not being able to pay for the services they felt they required to survive, becoming caught up in a survival mode, once becoming addicted. I'm sure everyone has heard the cliche', "one is too many and a 1000 is never enough". I know there is no simple solution to this problem but I don't feel I'm the only one that fell into this dark trap. Again, I'm sure Dr. Salerian helped many people who truly needed it but apparently, with what has occured with his practice, they are in the minority. My prayers go out to the ones that truly needed his help that are now going to suffer.

Haven't seen any news of it either. Some day folks will figger out that the war on drugs probly started as a good idea, maybe not I think it was because Nixon hated hippys, just like Reefer Madness came out to be used against the Mexicans but any law like that if it lasts this long gets played eventually by somebody to get federal govt money. Lots of money to clinics, jails, police departments, medicare, medicaid, private jails and such but nothin much to help the working man thats hurt and has to press on or see his family do without for no good reason. Shame there ain't a good place nearby the coal fields to get those men sum real help, ppl have to drive to florida or dc to find enough help they can make a living. Those men can't take a day off ever time their scrip runs out. Salerian took the whole back page of the paper for an ad, forget which one, to explain what he's doing, so I figured when I saw it he'd just painted a big bullseye on his back for the feds to shoot at. Damm shame, it sounded like he was just tryin to help the workin man

I hope they buryd nixon face down so all those greedy bastards making a fortune off this pretend war on drugs can drop by now and then to kiss his ass

this should answer most of your questions, particularly pages 8-9, which are specifics on why his license was suspended:
