Use to have my medical license a few years ago...and this is an old hat trick. Good for many tens of thousands of dollars. The even teach this trick on the side at many many instituitions.

Surprised he got caught. He didn't pay very good attention in the side class.

You should be able to pull this off for about 8 years and then simply pull-out.

It helped me ease into my retirement.

Went to this guy when I first moved into the area a few years ago. Both he and the guy that worked for him would repeatedly ask "do you need any other prescriptions? "are you sure?" "you don't want anything?" Seemed rather shady then, glad I went elsewhere.

I thought most of these minute clinics had a nurse practitioner who worked there and they had a physician who was on call for a few minute clinics in case the CNP had any questions or concerns about a patient.

This guy obviously decided that he wanted to be greedy and forge doctors' signatures. I bet he won't even lose his license though. Probably just a steep fine.

It's a shame because minute clinics are a great thing especially for people who work or have poor insurance or no insurance. They are usually cheaper than urgent care and as long as it's something easy and routine like an ear infection, strep throat, ect it's a great set up to have.

Yeah, sure you were a doctor. Go back down in your parents' basement and keep dreaming.

Next, there should be an investigation into fraudulent claims that may have been submitted by him, especially to Medicare. Anyone doubt that nothing significant will be revealed?

This just goes to show Gordon Gekko was right "Greed is Good"

Also crime knows no age, class , race etc $$ is a powerful incentive for many crimes..

And no this doesnt suprise me at all I think once they dig deeper into it all they will find insurance fraud or billing etc

You are still high/hung over from the partying you did last weekend. A week has past and it's now time to return to reality. Taking someone's temperature rectally once doesn't qualify you as a medical school dropout.

Dr. Demas has been my family doctor for years. I can personally say that his behavior was always above board. What a shame that people forget you are innocent until proven guilty.

Dr. Demas has been a trusted family doctor for 20+ years and even personally saved my life. He has been always above aboard and advised us to seek specialized care when necessary. I agree with the above post that someone is always innocent until proven guilty! Our prayers are with you Dr. Demas.
