Why dont you just go and tell the owners of Tug Valley yourself, and stop putting it on this site where they will proably never see it. Go tell Hoover and the other dr. how you feel while your at it.

You are 100% right. You NAILED it. Thank you. I think this one person who THINKS they know it all, got kicked out of the TVP and others for going in with his tongue hanging out of his mouth and [email protected] up.

First of all show me a law that says a Doctor has to have a license in each state to have their prescription filled in that state. You mentioned one pharmacy in Ky that filles Hoover scripts. What about all the other ones? Cedar Trace, Rite Aid, Food City, Kimper, etc. What is there reason for not filled her scripts? Hoover does not have a license in KY. Check the KY and WV medical board. Also google Hoover and her practice in Florida. What can these Doctors sue for? LOL Hoover is on probation for five years and has to work under a supervising physician. Shafer can never practice in KY again. Thats all public record. Its not like their reputation is much to begin with.

LOL if anyone got kicked out of Tug Valley it would be because they did not have an insurance card or money to pay for the script. They could care less if someone was high.

Ok so a Doctor who sees a large amount of patients almost like a revolving door who makes diagnosis off five year old MRIs (that case was public record) who mostly treats dope heads is not responsible? What about the pharmacist who sees the large number of scripts these Doctors are writing as compared to other Doctors in the area and who sees the caliber of people coming in? What if one of these people hits and kills someone in your family? It happened in Pike County on Town Mountain about a year ago? We have no use for Hoover and Shafer.

Really Jdz----You need a life. You cant control where people go to fill their meds. You dont have any of your facts straight. Make sure you get on every topix in every state and make the same statement. Are you a pharmacist? Who is trying to act holy? Why hide behind this? There are pill mills every where. What do you do, go around and take a poll to ask the citizens of this small community where and what they think of TVP, Hoover, and Shaffer? So what this is really telling us is that somewhere in between these 3 business, someone pissed you off, and this is your sweet revenge.
OK do you support Hoover and Shafer? Do you want them practicing in your community? Why did Kentucky and Florida run them out of their states? Would you want your child's school next to their office? Would you want your home next to their office? A poll? What does a poll have to do with anything? This is not my revenge. I would like to see them in prison like Dr Kiser who also practiced in Williamson. You are right I can not control where people go to get their dope filled not meds. But the pharmacist can. He does NOT have to fill a prescription. There is no law. He does so and he knows what is going on at these clinics. So what do pill mills everywhere have to do Hoover and Shafer and TVP? They are not everywhere or people would not be driving 2 hours to see one of these Doctors. its obviously not for the quality health care. Do you honestly think these Doctors wound up in Williamson by mistake? They cant go anywhere else. Because there are pill mills everywhere its ok to have one in our community? There is an article in Letcher County about how all their prescription drugs are coming from Williamson WV.

Oh because I am anti drug then I need a life? Does someone in your family go to these Doctors? Because nobody with half a brain would defend these Doctors. Even people who go there do not claim they are good Doctors. What facts do I have wrong. Everything I have said can be found on the internet. Go to the WV and KY medical board webpage. I guess it was a conspiracy to pick on these hard working doctors who treat the poor people of WV and KY right?

If you dont go to TVP, or to any of these doctors, them why do feel the need to continue this conversation? If you know that you are not doing pills or anything else wrong, start serving the community you oh so love. Plant a tree, or pick up trash. I dont like some of the things I see either, but I know that its not consuming my life either. As long as you and your family walk a straight line, let everyone else worry about theirs. How about prayer? Do you honestly think you are doing good work slandering everyone who you think is a pill head, or a drug pusher? Let God do his job. It is not our job to judge. Unless you know first hand with your eyes and ears right on these places you hate, why the bother?

tug valley pharmacy isnt the only pharmacy that fills from these doctors...go to hurleys or to family pharmacy...but it doesnt matter...i know for a fact that they only fill a certain number of prescriptions from these two doctors...you have no idea what you are talkin about....you must be one of the patients that cant get anything filled anywhere...and you are the one that should investigate what you are saying...

It would be wise or what? People died for freedom of speech so dont act like you are going to sue someone for slander. its not slander when its true. dont fill scripts for dope doctors.

Sorry but there is NOTHING GREAT about Hurley Drug and they have filled MORE than their share of pill head rx's They made the front page of the Williamson Daily News for filling rx's for oxycotin for this girl with nothing wrong with her. They were one of the places where the Ward lawyer got his pills and on and on ...Hurley's is the money hungry pill mill ....hands down. The thing that I think would help to put a stop to so many pills floating around is when the DHHR starts to realize that they need to match rx's to a doctor visit...they are at Shafers and pay $200 cash only to get the rx's and then they use there welfare medicaid card to get the pills at $2 a rx and then sell them etc. When I questioned this I was told the rx's go through one office and the dr. goes through another .....this would be a simple solution.

No pharmacy should fill for Hoover and Shaffer. We need them gone. I could not find that story on the Williamson Daily News.

nobody said people shouldnt go to the Doctor when they are sick. Being a drug addict is not being sick. Being a drug dealer is not recognized in any physicians manual as an illness that a Doctor can treat. Yes I do go to the Doctor when I am sick. But do I go to Hoover or Shaffer? No because about the only thing they know is writing pain and nerve pills. If a pharmacist knows something is wrong he should report it to the medical board not just fill "limited" scripts. This goes for all pharmacies. I am not picking on anyone in particular. But if someone knows something unethical, dangerous to public safety, probably illegal is going on they do not need to participate because other pharmacies are doing the same thing.
