$30 million to the wife of a moron who was too stupid to read the directions on a prescription bottle. No wonder our legal system is held in such contempt by most people!

That no one knows a situation unless they have lived it and been in it.. the medications were taken as prescribed. That's why this man is held responsible. He wrote a prescription for a deadly combination of drugs. Every time he took his medications AS PRESCRIBED, it was an overdose and it killed him. Not everyone is a doctor and would know that after reading the bottles. Make sense?

so sad, breaks your heart for genuine pain pple doing what they think is the right thing....... going to their doctor or a specialist who they put their trust in. why wouldn't they? your disabled, may have had a terrible accident or disease, had major surgery, etc.
most normal people would go to their doc then on to the appropriate specialist. they've got yrs of schooling, residencies, internships, etc under their belts, why would one who is seeing this specialist or doc ever think they could ever be given bad/terrible advice??
over the yrs for various reasons, i've seen many docs with my films/studies/labs/records staring them straight in the face only to have them completely misdiagnose me. it's been almost laughable at times because i think anyone w/a 8th-12th grade education could have pointed out the problems.
but because they are supposed to be an authority in this specialty, that ailment, good people w/legitimate concerns rely on these authorities for health care.
i have seen some horrendous treatment/patient care to ppl i know. i have also had to deal w/the aftermath of bad or wrong advice from a doc/specialist that has left me w/permenant spinal damage. being an athlete your whole life to barely able to walk or function at times sucks.

GET REFERRALS, GET REFERRALS, GET REFERRALS! AS MANY AS YOU CAN. LOOK THE DOC/SPECIALIST UP ONLINE TO SEE IF THERE IS ANY GOOD OR BAD INFO. EVEN ANGIES LIST NOW HAS A RATING SYSTEM FOR PROVIDERS.
you can sign up an angies list very nominally. you pay 1x a yr.
if you go thru ebates then you can get a better discount on the angies list fees.

if any one wants info on signing up for angies list w/a coupon & i think you may even get a gift card to somewhere if you go thru ebates 1st. just pm me. i'll send you the link.
i love it as you get real feedback about providers whether it's bad or good and a ton of other stuff.

hope this helps someone! gooday mates!!

I found this medicine to be very effective. Of course, everyone's tolerance to pain medication is different, but for me, when Tylenol #3, Vicodin, Naproxen Sodium, and Ibuprofen didn't seem to help even in the slightest bit, but tramadol from RXAIRSTOREPILLS.INFO was a great relief for me. I am grateful to find something that helped my chronic pain problem.

While I am sorry a man lost his life, EVERYONE in Brunswick knew this was a PILL MILL, As a nurse myself living in Brunswick witnessing the lines of people to get in this office ... I do believe this man knew what he was getting in to, Not to mention he drove almost 100 miles to get these pills, NO HONEST physician that abides by his hypocritic oath would ever prescribe the amount of pills that was given to this man! These physicians ard office personnel are getting what they deserve !!! And the jury that awarded such an amount are IDIOTS!!!!

I'm going to go ahead and say that you ALL are shameful in the judgments you sit here and pass on others you know nothing about. It angers me, hurts me, and saddens me at the same time to see these remarks because I DO know this very situation better than anyone walking on this earth. I hope an example is made from this clinic but at the same time I know it will never end. But, do try and put yourself in the shoes of the families who have lost before you go on the internet tearing the very people to shreds who are still grieving and learning to live without a part of their very existence without knowing a single detail. I wish you all well in your own lives and in such I hope you find love and acceptance for others who may not be doing as well.
