I went to him for chronic neck stiffness after my chirpractor moved away. He told me he was just getting back to his practice after a serious snow mobile accident (HMMM?) He was very nice I went to him 3-4 times then found someone else. I would have a low grade headache for days after the adjustment, which I never experienced before nor after. Very sad !

What a joke, too bad you have no idea what your talking about. It is by no means a defense of this man or what he did, but you really have a terribly small view about manual medicine, and what chiropractors do or how they are qualified. You are...so sad.

I find it unlikely a REAL doctor would've fled the scene; they would instead help save lives, just like they're trained to do. His defense will probably be that he fled to get his adjustment table, because without it he really can't help. Try googling "chiropractor" and "fake doctor" and see how many hundreds of hits pop up. I refuse to call any of those clowns "Dr". Is a personal trainer a doctor too??? They work out hard and have to get a certificate too.

Chiropractors are REAL doctors and are liscenced in the state they practice in after many years of stringent training, many years of college.If you have never been through back pain, neck pain etc then you just would not undestand. Insurance covers these appointments just like your "real" doctors!!!There are plenty of "real" doctors out there doing some awful things (Dr Conrad Murray, anyone?) So get out of the ignorant bubble. If you have a chirpractor who is and most are very skilled, you feel like a new person when you leave and besides: THEY DONT BELIEVE in OR PRESCRIBE ILLS/MEDICATION'S!!! So the "date-rape theory shows real ignorance on the author who wrote that. There are bad people in every socio-economic groups to the poor to the wealthy...from the unskilled laborer to the politiians doctors lawyers and on and on. This "doctor" did a very bad horrible thing....he killed innocent people by his selfish behavior...he has also ruined his life and that of his family.t dont put down a whole profession that you know obviously very little about.

I'm so disgusted by some of these comments.. What happened to those with no sins cast the first stone.. Noone has the right to judge if you don't know what you would do yourself in this situation.. When you have a split second to make life changing decisions have you always made the right one.. Have you ever driven drunk thinking you were fine..it could have been you behind the wheel.. No one is perfect and we have all made mistakes or taken horrible risks..I know him personally and I know he is genuinely a wonderful person.. I'm not saying what he did was right nor am I trying to make light of the situation I know he tragically caused the death of these poor people who were in the wrong place at the wrong time.. Drunk driving is not ok at any time of the day or night but no one thinks of his family, his wife and his young children and the pain there experiencing ... Its a lose lose situation.. My heart goes out to all parties involved.. U naysayers don't kknow him or the pain and regret I'm sure he's going thru.. Good people make bad choices but you can't judge them if you have no idea what you would do in the same situation

I totally agree. My chiropractor has helped me many times and I totally recommend him. What they do is no joke. Not when you're messing with people's backs.

my friends came upon the accident scene and were horrified by what they saw. My friend is a nurse and she told me she never felt so helpless and wondered what kind of person could have hit these people, caused such trauma and then move on, in total disregard for human life. The next day I was surprised to read that the person who hit them was my chiropractor!

I know him professionally and last I knew he was not married nor does he have children. If that's the case, then his wife and children should really pay closer attention to his whereabouts at certain local establishments on specific weeknights & weekends. Yes accidents happen and people make poor choices. We all live in glass houses. But what "wonderful" person leaves the scene of an accident like that? If it was truly an accident and not his fault then why did he flee? In that split second, did he even think to check on the DePinto's? Did he think about their families? Did he think about his passenger? Did he think about his patients? Did he think about his staff who are now unemployed with families to support? Nope.

I am nauseated and disgusted to be in the same profession. I wish no ill will on any human being and I am sure he is suffering however the rest of his victims shall suffer immeasurable losses for many years to come. Perhaps he should have thought about that before choosing to drive drunk and before leaving the scene.

Let's get this nonsense settled. If by doctor you mean someone who has graduated from an accredited medical school, the chiros, by definition, are NOT and CANNOT be medical doctors. I'm leaving PHd's, DD's, etc. out of this.

But the chiros ARE involved in medicine -their wacky ideas about it, anyway. And so, to achieve credibility, they refer to themselves as "doctors." Not a chance. Until you get that MD from an accredited institution, you just ain't a doctor, period.

More years than MD's? The chiro may tell you that, but that's another bit of propaganda. Here's what the Cleveland Chiropractic College says of its program:

"Cleveland offers a four-year, 12-trimester Doctor of Chiropractic degree, as well as an accelerated program covering the same curriculum in just 10 trimesters." Oh, goodie -I'll take the 10 trimester deal and graduate a doctor.

Now, you show ME where an MD gets a degree and is admitted to practice in 4 years. Sure, they're might be 4 years of med school, but that's just to get ready for residency. Here's what George Washington U Med school says:

"The curriculum leading to the Doctor of Medicine degree is designed to provide a medical education that prepares graduates comprehensively for residency training, provides them the experience on which to base their career selection, and prepares them for professional lives of continuous learning." Didja catch that? "PREPARES" you for residency TRAINING.

In other words, those four years are just training you to be trained!

"Doctor of Chiropractic?" Sure, sure, just like "Doctor of Upholstery," "Doctor of Wine," or anything else that wants to award a "doctor of" designation.

NOT the same as an MD.

I know him too. If I recall, his motto is 'work hard, play hard' and has multiple prior DWI/DUIs to prove it. He never gave back to the community like the people he killed. Steve never does anything for free. And let's not forget his snowmobile accident 10 years ago or so when a drunk driver hit him and left him for dead in the woods. Someone saved him and made sure he got on a mercy flight. Too bad he wasn't paying attention to those "life changing moments".

And since when does he have young children?

you're touching yourself again.
get a grip on reality Stella.
this guy is WRONG, DEAD WRONG.
you trying to justify it?
go to the funerals today.
then, you tell me how you can defend this P.O.S.
sometimes, you should just NOT say anything; especially when it comes to matters such as these.
to wit: "Have you ever driven drunk thinking you were fine"
WTF kinda BS is that blather?

""accidents happen and people make poor choices"" Is that what this is just a bad choice and an accident??
I don't think so It's a crime, its murder. And it people like you that think drinking and driving is no big deal, that fuels people like your drunk friend to do things like this.

You are a complete idiot.

Chiropractors are granted a doctorate license after many years of intense study, board exams, state exams etc. The program you cite at Cleveland chiropractic college is AFTER a four year undergrad degree. 10 trimesters = 5 traditional college years of 2 semesters each year genius.

Chiropractors do not use medications in their practice, that is why they are not in the AMA. Chiropractors actually take a much more extensive doctoral study than traditional MD's, as do pharmacists, etc. Everyone in medical school then traditionally declares a speciality and follows with a residence, as do chiropractors.

You really might want to buy a clue before you open your gaping pie hole.

Chiropractors are granted doctoral status on a state, national and international scale.

I'm truly amazed at the level of stupidity your spewing. Good God, I hope you dont have a job that requires any particular skill. You obviously quite a scholar....so I'm not actually too worried. What an incredible dousch you are.

Also ass hat.....

Chiropractors do not call themselves MD's or compare themnselves to MD's. If you knew any single thing in regard to what you are saying here - you would understand that. They are both health professions, yet compleatly distinct. No one disputes that, and anyone with any sense would understand that the two professions a unique to one another. Maybe you should focus...real real hard...and drag your poor pathetic body back out to the kitchen and see if you can scrape up another sandwich. I'm pretty sure that is something that you do understand.
