Dr. Healy is a good person, he just allowed himself to get involved with the wrong person (Alma). If she did all the ordering of drugs... why didn't she question the quantities? She was trouble the moment she stepped into that office & took over. I'm sure that's why Jessie left!

That was Healy's office. He knew what was going on. He got greedy. Plain and simple. Don't make him out to be the victim.

I had never had a history of drug use until 2001 when I first saw Dr. Healy. He was highly recommended to me by a friend. Within a year my now ex husband and I became addicted to Xanax. It destroyed my marriage and my life I have been sober now for almost 2 years. After having seizures and losing my husband it frightens the hell out of me to even think doctors have so much power. I was very successful and the drug he prescribed changed me completely it made me a compulsive liar and a cheater it brought out the ugly in me. I can't believe how that one prescription got me hooked. It's a shame his family has to deal with all this.

all u people know your own bodies and know whats good for you and whats bad for you. ultimately you made the choice to take the drugs. plain and simple. i know several docs who are just as bad, maybe worse than he was in prescribing pills. its a matter of disciplining yourself, listening to your body and YOU taking responsibility for the failures bc you chose to abuse the medication. if u were acting out of character why not stop taking those pills? many of u dont have discipline or even a brain to stop taking things such as these pills bc it makes u feel good. this thread is so disappointimg bc this about each and everyone of the people affected by Healy who dont want to own up to the fact that it was your own personal choice, and a lack of behavior and discipline. i am saying things they tell u in recovery. people, own up to your own issues instead of pointing the finger at everyone else. theres nothing wrong w admitting you were a former junkie and its because u chose to be one.

Dr. Healy was a nice man. I do think he tried to help people. The new doctor, Dr. Ashby is very kind as well.

Here it goes. my late wife became a stone cold pill popper because of this guy I too suffered and he was my doctor when I was 17 yrs old and I am now 46 I alway thought we were the only ones taking the pills I guess I was wrong. My wife passed away of breast cancer and in my heart I think the pills OVER 1000 a month TAKEN caused her premature death. I now raise my kids alone. i went from making six figures to being homeless and now an ex felon do to the choices I made. I always thought the dr. was helping when I went in there dope sick he would front bottles to us a lot of until I could pay. at the time I saw that as caring. Now I have been clean for sometime and I see it for what it is.
The Doctor is out now I hope and pray for peace for him and his family. I have no time to judge or hate.

He is out already? I thought he was in for numerous counts..??
In any case, I am happy. I liked Dr. Healy very much and I liked Dr. Ashby EVEN MORE..
Peace for everyone, confront your issues and take responsiblity for what you are doing... If in doubt, get a second opinion..!!

Lots of love to Ashby & Healy.. Forgive & move on folks!!

I happened to be incarcerated with Dr. Healy and from my dealings with him I could tell he was a good man. A very quiet and soft spoken individual. It is true he has finished his 36 month sentence and he leaves TCI with no career and all of his life's work waisted. Severe enough? He served his time and I think the right thing to do is to let him move on with his life. I too recently lossed my mother due to her Vicodine addiction and I can attest that the problem arises not with the doctors but with the individuals who seek to gratify their urges; who are too naive to realize the years of hurt they have caused their families. If the display of pain and hurt on your loved ones faces doesn't persuade you to sober up, than what will?

Why is it illegal for a doctor to administer drugs (unless he/she was black, then that would explain it. The best dope, who better than a doctor, dealer.http://www.thepetitions ite.com/takeaction/864/674/807 / The Petition Site: Why don't you arrest people for eating too much, too?
END THE WAR ON DRUGS; CREATE JOBS; SAVE LIVES: "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States." This clause protects a person's rights as a citizen of the United States from unreasonable State Action or interference.

The Fourteenth Amendment's

Drug laws are geared to bring slave labour into the realm of prisons. Now they have a doctor, now a slave laborer. Drug laws are killing and maiming more than were destroyed by the total Number of lynchings in the history of this nation. No one's business what I consume in my own body no more than I am only allowed to read and write what you want me to. Give people a prescription for medicine. I hope OBMA CARE will help us or we will be no more, at the rate Guns and Drugs laws are used as a kkk tool. Together we can Save the Nation or let it die. Stay out of my bedroom, my religion and my medicine cabinet. That is between me and my doctor and my insurance Co.

I am so sad by what I read about Dr Daniel J Healy - I went to this office for the first time maybe 25 or 30 years ago. I knew his wife ... and saw their children now and then. He was a catholic who practiced his religion, so I am shocked at the allegations against him. I hope they find out that someone else was writing preciptions in Dr Haley's name. He seemed to be a wonderful doctor.
I am still concerned about Dr.Daniel J Heart's future its now late 2014 I was a patient along with my children and wife for 25 years and he was always very professional and respectfull
