"Dang... What is going on in Apopka!!!"

Well, I don't necessarily expect someone from small-town Sanford to understand, but in a bustling metropolis like Apopka, this kind of stuff is bound to happen. Law of statistics.

I think Dr. Dube is the best Doctor I have been to..when I started with Dr. Dube, she looked over the meds I was on & had me take some tests, & then we talked about how she would like to proceed with my health care...she treats the whole person, not just hands out prescriptions...the changes she made with me, I am convinced she saved my life..she stays on top of the new changes in the medical field...She's the BEST..

If Dr. Dube is so great, why did she hire another physician without cross-checking references, licensure, etc. It is ILLEGAL to practice medicine without a license even if she is an MD, she must still be licensed in FL, which anyone with a computer can find out on myflorida.com . To make things worse, she allowed her to stay on when she did find out she was unlicensed--she should have immediately been terminated. This does not speak will for Dr. Dube. How could she NOT have known she wasn't seeing patients alone? This all sounds very fishy.

Exactly, Tara Wilfong was stealing and forging Dr. Dube's signature. I'm not sure what point you are trying to convey???

Dr Dube saved my life. She takes time with each patient. She goes over and above to care for her patients. Dr Dube writes scripts the same way anyother doctor does. You are all playing the Great American Blame game. Dr Dube did no wrong. The employee she had working for her did the false information.

Dr Dube is the best MD I have ever been to. She is very caring and has a great staff, and a great office.

You know. Everytime someone does something wrong everyone speaks up about whats wrong with the person. All of these people that complain about what Dr. Dube did or did not do. Is not the point here, i see a witch hunt on a good doctor who did made a mistake. Everybody cries out in horror when a doctor gets caught up in something but we ALL know about one doctor or another here in Florida that not something properly. Let's think about this...If a patient need medical attention from their own doctor but can't cover the copay on this visit, they're turn away regardless on their condition. How many doctor's load patients on drugs they DON'T need just to cover any possible problems instead of taking the time to diagnose them and give them the proper medications?

Who knows the circumstances behind this, maybe Dube was trying to give a person a decent chance to start over and this person took advantage of this. Maybe she didnt do all her backsground, who knows. But if all these people are going to doing anything about this particular situation, go find something more productive with yoiur days and leave Dr. Dube alone. Personally, she did a whole lot for me then 3 other doctor's i've been to. She made a mistake. get over it. We all are grown adults. The person who reported her, did right, she saw something wrong and she put it out there. Can any of you nay sayers do the same?? Or will you just jump another witch hunt when then is over?

This is not the first time Dr Dube had a unlicensed person seeing her patients. She also had a nurse practioner seeing patients that was only a nurse studing to be a nurse practioner. Dr Dube always wants to take the easy way out and put the blame somewhere else other than herself. Its time she takes responsibility for her own practice it was no one's fault but her own for not checking references...

You are so full of $hit your eyes are brown!!!! WHO is the nurse practitioner you speak of? Her initials are probably R.J.

Dube is what they call a PRECEPTOR for students. Do you know what that is? Probably not! Look it up, think about the absurdity of what you have stated and then get back to the blog with some intelligent conversation! Until you inform yourself, you are nothing more than an ignoramous trying to sound intelligent.

Furthermore, try checking and reading your postings before you post them. Typos, grammatical errors, etc...you sound stupid!

Didn't know nurses are "studing" for becoming a nurse practitioner; does that mean they are having sex with a horse before they can become a nurse practitioner?

You don't know Dube, obviously never have as you would've never made such ridiculous comments. Shut your pie hole!
