Why is there such a hard-on for O'Keefe all of a sudden ? I've watched all of the news releases locally, and nothing is mentioned of him retiring, or being shit-canned, so what gives ?
Why advertise that he's always been a screw up costing the County hundreds of dollars and not the best choice of employees? Go do your home work.

OK, big Ol Boy, fill me in on some of the specifics. You seem to have done your homework? Tell me some of what he's done to cost the county hundreds of dollars ?
I'm serious here, not being a wise ass, I haven't heard anything about him. How is he a screw-up, what exactly did he do wrong?
Hey, anyone out there...if big mouth "big ol boy can't tell me what, can any of you be specific ?
Keep up with me here! Part of O'Keefe's duties include submitting for Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement to include services rendered by the Herk Cty Department of Health. His buddies at the County could only cover for him so long. I am not sure just how long this neglect has taken place. However the unbilled services became so great - Hundreds of thousands of dollars - the noose was tightened. This is money that the County sorely needs. Of course you aren't going to hear anything from the Republican dominanted Legislature or Wallace. Their oversight was absent and neglectful. Their participation in this cover up. Now I want to know if with the offical announcement as a retirement he is eligible for LIFE LONG FREE MEDICAL COVERAGE. What if he was fired? Would he be eligible? I suspect they negotiated a parting package - resign and you get your insurance/be fired and get nothing. This is pure speculation on my part. What do you think?

FWIW, I'm not a big mouth WTF. I'm just surprised you weren't in the know about this. You have a big opinion about everything else you know little of.

I heard he was fired from Bassett also. I don't know all of the facts behind it, but apparently there ere complaints from some patients of his accusing him of incompetence, or mal-practice.
I was his patient years ago, and he was a fine Doctor. I am going to him again now since he started his practice in Little Falls, and am still very happy with his care.
As far as him being fired, or retiring, there has been no news release of any sort, so I'm tending to believe that these threads on here are not much more than haters?
I too, am waiting for Big Old Boy to say specifically what has happened, and what Dr. O'Keefe has done for this so-called "Firing"

WTF, put on those glasses and lighten up. Idiot. I dare say the story is all over the County Building. This is not a rumor.

I think WTF16 & godz1 are butt buddies who call each other in the morning & plan out their day on topix. I come on here a couple of times a week (not proud of it because it's mostly garbage, but admittedly some of the threads are interesting). These two are on almost every post I see. Do you two work? I'm more intrigued by the attention-seeking rants than the actual friggin post. Get jobs. Or if retired, for Christ's sake go try to fix some of the crap you rant about. You seem to know a lot about everything so get crackin'. It can't be that nonstop topix ranting fulfills you, can it? Because that would be pretty pathetic.

Nope, WTF. It's all verifiable from the group he reports to. That's all I am going to say from this point on. You are going to look like a bigger idiot than we all think you are now. Go bully someone else.

Now you need to say you are sorry. You obviously can't read nor comprehend why timely billing for Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement for services rendered is a large part of his job.

Read the article. You are the azz in all this. Not to mention being woefully uninformed. Look before you flap.

Of course this fluff job by the OD is just a white wash of his dereliction of duty. Why should you expect anything less from his good buddy and golfing partner Jim Wallace? He was kept on although the audit of the billables was completed a few months ago. Why? So O'Keefe could complete a full 10 years of employment and be eligible for FREE LIFE TIME HEALTH INSURANCE that we are all going to pay for. So this is the way our county government works - take care of our own and f&(# the taxpayers. I wouldn't take my cat to be treated by O'Keefe.

Run along now. You're becoming a pest. O'keefe will never go to jail. He's done this before and received a sanction and a hefty fine in Maine. He knows how to buddy up with the Reb. hierachy to prevent the truth from coming out. After all, they are supposed to be managing this boob. Obviously, they as usual did a piss poor job.

Go do something useful with your retirement time.

It must suck to be you, eh ? Everything is a conspiracy, a cover-up, everyone's crooked, and everyone...I mean EVERYONE is out to get you. People like you make me laugh my ass off.

You have O'Keefe arrested, found guilty and in prison already....but wait, the higher-ups in the county are gonna cover it up, I forgot...'scuse me.

Jesus, get a freakin' life you loser.

From this point on, you are ignored. YOU run along now, ya miserable piece of s**t, I have no use for you, or your kind. F**k off, and have a great day.
