Psychiatrist Dr. William Lewek tested positive for cocaine during the booking process at the jail. He's an addiction specialist, you would think he would know better than to be doing crack.

U of R Strong must be very proud to have this whack job on faculty, counseling patients and training their residents. Try drug testing your doctors, Strong.

Common and problematic in the community. I bet many knew he was dirty yet protected him.

Agree. Strong Psychiatry Dept had to have prior knowledge of his drug use. Particularly with residents working closely with him (they are, after all, already trained to identify abuse).

Why isn't the local news all over this? This is a big story, but no one has asked the hospital for their reaction. No one has held Strong accountable. Let's find out how Strong Hospital spins this one, besides putting daylight between him and the department -- and claiming it was a "loose relationship", whatever that means.

Who better for Strong to have as their addiction specialist than an addict?
Makes perfect sense since he could relate to the patient's concerns and issues.They must be proud to have this gay/addict/body mover-concealer on their staff!

I bet the stiff is full of coke or meth plus the doctor's special sauce. Just sayin'. Looking forward to the examiners findings.

I would not bring my dog to Strong Hospital. This is what is on the payroll. The UofR/ Strong sucks. All the good doctors are at Unity or RGH.

So sad for everyone,especially Matthew and his family. Dr. Lewek did not take responsibility to seek help for his own addictions, causing a circle of betrayal,pain and heartbreak for so many.

The doctor is gay and according to Lonsberry, Mathew was a gay prostitute. So what happened in the bedroom on the 3rd floor and how did this young guy die? Did he OD on the Dr's Drugs or did the Dr. Kill him? Or was it something else? The media has been quite. The family must know more about Mathew then they are saying.

Strong is keeping very low profile about their Dr Lewek.

Question: How come all of the screwups come out of Strong, not Rochester General? Maybe RGH checks out their doctors better, and drug tests them.

The derelict doctors always end up at Strong. They must know Strong won't check them out, and they're desperate for warm bodies.

He probably has aids too.

And i still find it strange that the dead boys brother lives 4 houses away and no-one in the family knows of any link to the doctor???

Lots of questionable head scratching moments. This ought to be good when all the facts come out, can't wait.

The questions I want answered: how did this doctor remain on medical staff at Strong, evaluating and counseling psychiatric patients, with a crack cocaine addiction issue? Doesn't that cloud or alter good clinical judgement?

Not one other Psychiatrist, psychiatric nurse or Resident caught this (and it is a big department)? Unlikely.

What does it take to get pulled off staff at Strong? How many other doctors at SMH have similar drug or alcohol problems, and are seeing patients?

Why don't other local systems have these problems (better controls)?

Does Strong get a free ride because they issued a press release that claims they have a "loose relationship" with they provider? How about a press statement explaining why they overlooked the issue?

Strong is screwed up. Never get an operation there. They may kill you. Unity and RGH are run well. How many other nurses and doctors are on drugs at Strong? Its so big its out of control. Big is not better.

Bob Lonsberry said that Matthew was a male prostitute and a drug user? Also TV 13 reported that young boys would always be hanging around the doctors house and on his porch. Was he giving drugs to the boys for sex? TV13 stated that the doctor was gay and interviewed one of his male patients that said he was trying to make out with him and flirting with him. He felt uncomfortable and and never went back, For sure this doctor had some screws loose. The big question is what happened with Matthew in the doctors bedroom?

Another big question is: How does Strong Hospital get away with this consistent bad behavior?

Medicine of the Highest Order... yeah, sure. Time to change that fluff piece.

Keep generating those press releases, denying any previous knowledge of his problems. Hey, Strong, you listed him with a faculty appointment, and he was on staff there. Deny that.

Strong/UofR never heard of him as of 1/18/2014. He is no longer listed in the hospital records.

Remember a white drunk driving doctor from strong killed a young city black man? I wonder what ever happened to him, a 6 month sentence I'd guess.

Modern Medicine is controlled by the Rockefeller Foundation .

They knew in the early 20th Century that "this was the Racket ' to Fund and operate in .

Look it up .

hence all the college/Industry in the medical field is regulated by them .

No cures for you ....JUST TREATMENT and High COST hospitals .

Any one who finds a cure gets there grant cut off and life destroyed . AS well as Character assassination .

Yikes, are you bouncing off walls. Who comes up with this stuff?

Don't you think (I guess not) that any researcher that makes a big breakthrough would go straight to the major networks if his grant was terminated (based on your theory). Lets see, Nobel Prize or remain quiet. You gotta stop reading conspiracy websites.
