Yes, that's the same one. He is dating Shelly Morris the Attorney. That's why he was in Lexington when he got picked up walking down Broad Street intoxicated which led to his license being suspended.

He is going through a nasty divorce and they haven't been very public with their relationship. Until he was arrested that is. They has supposedly had a fight and that is why he was walking down Broad Street intoxicated and tested positive for opiates( hydrocodone). Oh, and his attorney is Steve Milam in his divorce case. Hydro's,Steve Milam, Hmmm...

First of all I never said I knew the whole story. I have high regards for Dr Phillips however being a physician he should not had done what he was told. The dissection could had been caused by several things, if the artery was too small and if he had performed an angioplasty. What he does in his private life is his business; however, what he does on his job can effect everyone. Hopefully he will be able to get everything under control and be able to see patients again.

Patient/ Doctor relationship ie... trust You have one life dont think I want it in his hands. Dont believe the whole story on Dr. Phillips has been told. There is probably more to come. He didnt just suddenly have a bad day its the result of some very bad decisions over a long time. Interesting to see who else gets exposed.

Did he get picked up in Lexington after he got arrested at outback in Jackson for public intoxication? He appeared to be having his nervous break down that night.

My heart breaks for Tony. At one time he was an excellent physician with more respect for the nurses and all anxillary personell. I love working with he, he was smart, quick, friendly and really wanted to know your opinion. He always made us smile and feel comfortable and smart, which in turn made it easy for all of us to get along. I live in Phoenix now and was not privy to all the problems Tony was having. I wish I would have been there to attempt to help me...he has helped so many people in the town of Jackson. The last time I saw him was in Phoenix and seemed to be doing well! I will miss his bright smile and witty humor. Rest Well My Friend...you are free!
