Isn't it too late for any determination about the cause of death, when a corps has been buried that length of time? Whew, how would you like being the ME for that job? Wow.
I think we are seeing the power of crack cocaine over people's live doing hideous things. Nasty drug. Everything stinks about this crime.

I'd like to know why this ''doctors'' colleagues, patients, never had a clue about this mans mental state - appearance? Uh...one look should say alot - he looks like a thug, homeless - sombody you shouldn't trust!!! How is a man - doctor or not - allowed to be out of jail after moving & burying a body in his yard, possesing drugs, while a liscensed physician? He actually had people coming to get coundeling? Who would go to this quack & not run the other way!!!
Unless he was selling to his addicted patients? Once again Rochester drops the ball & lets this very sick individual free!!!!!! My heart just breaks for the family. Regardless of the sons problems he didnt deserve to be buried by this disturbed evil man.

Dr Lewek is a very nice man. I know him. His left eye was always irritated due to allergies. He's an old man who had a hard enough time walking. Don't speak of what you know nothing of. He is very well known and respected by the medical community. He's Avery good psychiatrist. He saved my life.

Dr Lewek should have his medical license pulled, and remain in jail. He is a threat to the community.

Talk about violating your oath as a physician! I suppose this is accepted behavior at Strong Hospital. A travesty.

doctors violating the Hippocratic oath is as common as police abusing the badge in this town.
you folks need to wake up see the reality of those perpetrating with serious issues themselves. Integrity, confidentiality, do no harm, professionalism are sketchy.

A good psychiatrist doesnt hide crack in a sneaker in his bedroom. This is public knowledge from the news & newspaper, not a guess.
So you would still go this psycho?
Crack possesion oif a physician says it all...
He is a danger to his patients and himself & should not have been let out.

Do no harm is out the window on this situation. There is far more to this incident than has been released to the public.

Does he still have a NY State license of practice medicine? Is he still on medical staff at Strong? Does he still see patients?
