It is asshattery like this that makes most doctors afraid to prescribe adequate doses of pain medication to legitimate patients. Get the dea out of the doctor patient relationship or even better abolish this rogue agency!

He was a great man and these greedy woman stole from him. Go fight for him mr. Joel Daniels and make sure those girls that put all those pills out on the street get no breaks. They are the ones that brought him down . as for the Dea , you should have done a better job and looked into these derange woman( staff ). And put them in jail and warn the doctor. Do you realize how many lives you affected that need him!!!! The filthy ones should have been followed and arrested , you looked like fools out there in those dumb retarded uniforms.I wonder if it would help dr Mehta if we stepped up to the plate for him as he did for us and testify that he was a caring helping doctor and in no way put me in harm and I was in his care for almost 20 years. Your welcome in niagara falls any day dr mehta. I hope your family is hanging in there and as for his son your dad is a great doctor and a great man!!!

I was a patient of Dr. Mehta when I lived in NF, and I can only speak well of him. He was a caring physician and a likable man. He prescribed what I needed if I needed any medication, but he certainly never went overboard with my meds. I heard him on the telephone with patients who wanted more drugs then they were allowed, and I heard him flatly refuse. He referred me to other doctors in NF for surgery, etc., and every one of them was absolutely competent. I trusted his judgement for my children as well.

It's only the greedy and the scum that let this happen!!!! There was a better way to go about it than arresting a great doctor. Does any one know who that guy is in the very back in the black trench coat with the really ugly smerk and the really big nose( he is seen pointing his finger towards the patrol car in one of the two photos?? He needs a good smack!!!

Mr. Lawman......why dont you iraqi look alike soldiers and mr. Dea lead invesigator go after those girls that you rounded up pay back the taxpayers. If your asking for 1.5 million,the office building. To me thats very extream!!!!!!... Are you aking the goverment to sieze the girls property,monies from this..? Asking to give back just what they took,doesnt send a message to detere this from happening again. Plus asking for refund of the cost of perscriptions, is silly. What about mr dea's 18 month investigation, dont they as well as dr. Mehta according to you have proceeds from all the scripts they stold? I know these sumbag girls obtained cars,jewlery,etc....its only the right thing to do...even if the goverment has to garnish there wages for life,that would be a great idea if ony they can obtain a job,which will be hard since they stold from their previous employer.

I'm going to be honest here...my then boyfriend and I went to Dr Mehta after being informed by a friend that the doctor would give us ANY med we requested, and/or did a bad acting job to obtain. Although he was kind and caring, he NEVER thoroughly examined me prior to prescribing Percocet, not did he ever question why, as a Canadian still working full time in Canada was I coming to an American doctor for narcotics. We went to him for one reason, and one reason only...to get Percs WAY cheaper than we'd pay on the street. My boyfriend then went in and TOLD Dr Mehta that he had ADD...he was never questioned or tested for it, and sure enough, the lovely doctor handed over the Adderall my man self diagnosed himself with a need for. Now that some time has passed, I want people to realize that Dr Mehta WASN'T Dr Innocent by ANY means. I'm not sure what the office staff were up to, but the doctor was FAR too careless, and always had an office full of con artists with their "prop" canes-SURE they would get whatever med they wanted. This is just an FYI for info purposes only.
