Herald Dispatch....

No one has been charged in connection with the ongoing investigation at this time, and copies of any seized patient files were left with the clinic, which remains open.

(All local news stations are reporting the story today.)

This is not a pill mill. I have been going to him for Suboxone for 2+ years. He does drug tests monthly & he actually listens & cares about patients sobriety. This is in no way a pill mill like you see in Florida or anywhere else.

Well Jill this is Ironton. Do anything to make them look like they are doing something nomatter who they hurt or name they slander. I know all about painpills and who sells and I have never even heard of the place so I doubt very much what they are saying is true. Its sad that a doctor is even scared to write a script for vicodans anymore of fear of being busted. To many people today are suffering because doctors will not write nothing for pain anymore. I just hope that all these people that bitch about doctors will oneday themselves be in chronic pain 24/7 and then try to find a doctor to help.

Sad but true. This doctor has been a lifesaver for me. I can't brag enough about how he cares/talks about sobriety\clean time. Now I am going to have to find another suboxone doctor & it's hard to find doctors that actually care.*sigh*

So are they closing his office? If no arrests have been made, it seems to me that they have jack shit that shows he is running a "pill mill". Like some have already said before, Dr. Hall and his associates are nothing but professional. If bot for finding him, I am not sure where I would be today. I went from unemployed and spending every cent I had on drugs to finding a career job and now sober for almost 2 years. It's pathetic that they have done this to such an amazing doctor. If all of these agencies feel they are helping the community, they need to take a step back and look again. All of those that legally receive medicine from this doctor will be left to fend for themselves and many will relapse as a result. Quite concerning if you ask me. And for those that saw him yesterday for Suboxone, are his prescriptions still honored at the pharmacy?

I have see Dr Hall for years. A very kind and caring man. I do not go because I'm an addict but because of pain I have from working to hard all my life. I really don't want to see another Dr because Dr hall cares about his patients. I have seen him drop many patients for not following the rules. If he's so bad why did it take them a yr and a half to put a stop to it?

Suboxon for 2 years? Really? That isn't treatment. It is legalized, government controlled drug addiction.

Really guys??? Come on, a legit treatment plan would not include keeping you on "drugs" for over 2 years. As far as cancer patients not getting drugs, again I say B.S. Legit cancer patients don't have to go to "clinics" for their pain meds. Oncologist prescribe them all the time, as much as you need. I have never heard of a cancer center being raided, have you?

It's not judging, it is stating a fact. Look up the "real" info on suboxone. You are to be tapered off and it doesn't take a year.
I do feel for you (but only a little bit). I believe either the "doctor" is taking advantage of you and keeping you on the stuff for profits, or you like the high. Probably a lot of both. Get real,Get sick, Then Get well. good luck

i agree 2 years should be the max for a patient to be aloud.... But suboxone `if done right` doesnt make you high, and thanks but no thanks for your pity, i know what i have accoplished in the last year..... and i know that suboxone and being commited is to thank for it.

Well what about the people in pain? I got hurt at working in 2003 I have been treated really bad by some drs.Dr Hall always cared. It's really bad when you hurt and they treat you like a pill head but to live life you need help not treated like your common trash.

I to care less about suboxen. I need my painpills. I worked hard physical labor for over 40 years. I can nolonger work and now recieve my SSDI. My back is shot,all my joints throb and my bones are decaying. Ican't even use my hands anymore from the pain. If not for finding a great compassionate doctor i would have killed myself along time ago. I have had it up to here with all these damn people calling people pillheads. Yes I to think these low-life bastards that have never worked a day in their entire life but yet get addicted to painpills for the high needs to be stopped. And to do you people that has never expearianced 24/7 chronic pain but choose to condemn the people who just wants a normal life and their only road is painpills. I have also had it with are newfound communist goverment that is slowly stripping us of our rights as we sit by and not saying a word. You people better wake up soon or its going to nip you in your ass.
