What a P.O.S.! I was ashamed to read that someone, let alone a physician/surgeon hit a person and left her for dead!
I hope this bastard rots in hell!
Notre Dame Grad too..... bring back public flogging and public executions!!

Thats messed up, he must have been doing something illegal to run. A DR leaving a person who is hurt, he should never be allowed to practice again.

my guess is that he will soon be a "prison doctor" with NO pay. May he rot there for the rest of his natural life!
I know who he is and I am so shocked that he would do something so stupid and gutless! I hope the family sues him for everything he has! He won't be needing it where he's going!

It is a good thing you have dogs to love as your judgmental attitude is unworthy for human love. How about you take a minute and try to realize how many lives this man has saved. You can not fathom the sacrifice a physician makes to care for other humans day in and day out. Your envy only looks at what he may have gained rather than what he gave up. It was a sad event and your ugly attitude halps no one.

Is this a question of a balance sheet? How many lives must one save before they allowed to drive drunk, kill someone, evade detection and hope to get away with it? Sacrifice? We all choose a profession, does it matter if a mailman drives drunk after work and kills someone? Did you know he walked through snow and rain and got bit by a dog. Oh the sacrifices just to deliver your mail. No envy, just sympathy for the victim and their family. None for a selfish drunk driver, that knew better than to get behind the wheel. You really show your ignorance, thinking a physician deserves a pass.

When any human being is so arrogant that they get behind the wheel of a multi-ton vehicle impaired by too much alcohol, it is obvious they have little concern for others. This man has a PhD as well as an M.D. and it says that degrees from universities does not mean "smart." The doctor was too egotistical to ask the Transit Club people to call a cab or to ask for someone else to do the driving. Doctors have enough money to afford the $40. cab fee. THEN....after hitting the young woman and carrying her for 60 feet on the hood of his vehicle & dumping her body at the edge of a neighbor's lawn...to just keep speeding off (and was his wife his passenger helpless to get him to stop???). The whole scenario is of HIS making and HIS responsibility. He probably has already lost his license to practice medicine. He will be shunned by family, friends, colleagues...and people will forever talk behind his back. The standard for his behavior seems to be 7 years in prison. The lawyer or lawyers will earn thousands of times the amount of money that cab driver from the Transit Golf course would have cost. Money, past prestige,....all of the former awards and rewards are just that...in the past. The present and future of this doctor are bleak. His life is essentially OVER except he has to exist in this living nightmare daily for the rest of his life. This arrogance and lack of concern for other human beings did not just erupt that night. This doctor has been harboring disdain for others for years conveniently concealed under prestigious pin stripe suits and rows of framed diplomas on his wall. Prison.....he created the walls himself and he deserves all the pain he brought upon himself.

How much is this going to cost the members of Transit Valley Country Club? Legal fees, restitution to the family, image consultants, the works. This Dr. also had a handicap down at The Quarry in Florida (source: ghin.org ) Will those members be affected? Lots of money for the defendents lawyers to go after.

There are certainly going to be steep lawyer's fees. Then, lawsuits. Of course. The doctor is ruined in all ways. It all would have been so simple to avoid this whole tragedy if he had not drunk so much, or...called a cab, or asked a non-drinker to drive him home. Could his wife have driven him home? Did he give her the chance or was he too "macho." Then, if the doctor had just stopped, attempted to give medical assistance, and called 911. That stopping...even if drunk...would have given him so much more hope. As it is, the doctor is in a deep hole. What happened to this supposedly fine human being? If he is human at all...and from all his past achievements it would seem that he has a heart beneath the ego....he has the most terrible punishment of all....his conscience and the fact that he took a life of a young woman. I don't know where he can go from here. It seems all downhill to me.

It is not a balance sheet. It is not that black and white. It's confusing how a person who has done so much for others could make such a rash and selfish decision causing such heartache to the family of the deceased. It's a shame we allow it to happen by the sentences that are handed down and by the terminology we use to describe the event.
That said, said doctor is the only surgeon in a thousand mile radius that can treat a very peculiar and particular type of ailment my wife has.
Conflicted? Yes, very. Punishment and the crime, I get it. I guess everyone loses. What a shame...but it is now heartbreaking for me too.

I hesitated to respond to Buffalo, however, I must address some his words.
WHAT did WE allow to happen? How do WE describe the "event"?
An individual decides to drive drunk and take an innocent life, what responsibility should I bear? As I can have sympathy for your situation, there can be none for him and his family.
Appropriate charges are a matter of law, not discretionary, and are applied in accordance with the circumstances of the case. Upon subsequent conviction, sentencing guidelines will also be implemented.
Sometime it is best to let the system run it's course, and hope for JUSTICE.
May I wish you well and hope for a positive result for your spouse. Godspeed.

He isn't a surgeon. He's an Internist with a specialty in Gastroenterology. A thousand miles? Look harder. The Cleveland Clinic can't be more than a couple of hundred miles away. Why would anyone want a doctor with a hangover treating his wife? Count your blessings.
