Ahh good old white trash PORT ST. LUCIE

(no offense i only visited but lol)

A 50-year-old doctor accused of inappropriately writing prescriptions so his wife could get drugs was arrested Thursday on more than a dozen charges, according to records released Friday.

Dr. Gregory A. Hayes was arrested on nine counts each of trafficking oxycodone and prescribing practitioner fraud. Also, Hayes' 27-year-old wife, Kristen Kenyon, was arrested on nine counts each of trafficking oxycodone and obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.

"Imagine the one person that you love the most, laying on the floor in the fetal position begging for help," Hayes is quoted as telling a Port St. Lucie police detective and a DEA special agent March 7 when they met him at The Good Life Health & Wellness Center in Palm Beach Gardens.

Hayes is employed at Good Health, according to records. He's also the medical director of Coastal Medical and Wellness Center in Stuart, the owner told investigators earlier this month. Hayes was a physician from about 2009 to the beginning of this year with about a six-month gap in employment at Physicians Immediate Care in St. Lucie County, the owner told investigators.

The case began March 1 when a sibling of Kenyon's and the sibling's husband made a complaint with police.

Kenyon's sister called Hayes, saying he was "enabling Kristen, due to her ongoing drug addiction. Dr. Hayes advised (Kenyon's sister) that he could not stand to see Kristen cry and he could not tell her,'No,' " records state.

Kenyon's parents moved in with Kenyon and Hayes in February. Kenyon's father told police Hayes told him Kenyon has an addiction.

"He told Dr. Hayes that he should get help for Kristen, not write her prescriptions because she is telling him she is in pain," records state. "He believes Dr. Hayes is enabling Kristen and he stated that if we could take away Dr. Hayes' narcotic part of his medical license, that would be a big part in getting Kristen help."

Kenyon's mother told police Hayes told her he was writing Kenyon Percocet prescriptions to get her off cocaine.

In a March 16 interview with police, Kenyon initially said she took Hayes' pre-signed prescriptions without his knowledge, but later said Hayes wrote prescriptions in family members' names for her to get.

"She claimed to be manipulative and take advantage of Dr. Hayes," records state. "She said that Dr. Hayes will do anything for her and he cannot stand to see her in pain."

Kenyon said she went to the pharmacies by herself and paid cash for the prescriptions. She said she used family members' insurance.

Police arrested the couple at 7 p.m. Thursday at their address in the 300 block of Southwest Biltmore Street in Port St. Lucie, according to arrest affidavits.

Hayes and his wife were held Friday in the St. Lucie County jail, each on $270,000 bail, a jail official said.

Good for them? Good for who the police,DEA who really benefits when a pain clinic is shut down? What people fail to realize is every time an alleged pill mill is closed it causes a backlash. Their patients have to look for another clinic & usually go through painful withdrawals before finding another clinic. Pill mills are not the problem. Closing pills mills creates more pain & suffering than allowing them to stay open.

People don't think about or understand the "real" pain that comes with physical pain. Going through medical system, making relationship with doctor, learning to cope, depression, then when you get to the end.. your doctor's arrested.

Do you know him? Sounds like you may. Does anyone believe his story ? Gave wife oxy to get off coke ? Come on really makes no sense this ain't first time he's in trouble for writing scripts he shouldn't. Different med cops not involved as far as I know but lost job . I do feel for girl if she had to detox in jail. If he really cared he would of got her proper help it is out there. Have they bonded out? That's a lot of money.

I am well acquainted with Dr. Greg Hayes professionally.
He is my personal Physician.
I was taken completely by surprise.
I met his lovely wife Kristen earlier this year, enjoying both of them together.

He never mentioned one thing about drugs, nor did Kristen.
I had no way of knowing other then that they were both really nice people and
a good doctor for me.

I wish, however that he would have known me well enough to confide in me.
I was a Crack Cocaine addict for nine consecutive years.
I have been shot at, beat at, arrested at, and thru it all
I have an excellent knowledge of why no one should ever give themselves over to a drug of any kind, prescribed or street.

He and Kristen apart from this recent mess Are two lovely in love couple whom I would have enjoyed
to have taken to dinner with my date.

I served the USN valiantly during time of war. And in that war, the cold war vietnam, 1967-1969 while in
the USN Submarine Secret Service, I got to write some poetry about our journey during war.

Here it is in closing.

You see, we were a WWII boat, down 700 feet plus , into the 14th hour running very low on oxygen with the enemy of state above.

A decision was made to remove Lithium Hydroxide from the canister, and put it physically down through out the boat.

It is never supposed to be exposed to the living quarters. It is never to be removed from the can.
It is a C02 absorbent.

"Sometimes You have to Kill yourself to Save Yourself."

Life is not short for me, It is merely "Sudden"
G-d will bless my two friends, Greg and Kristen, and her parents, and family members who now know, they wished they had done it differently, if it only could have been, which no one will ever know now, if it could have been or not,

I really don't know, but I see this all coming down from Heaven, and therefore the outcome will be good in the end of it
Only good things come down out of Heaven.

Even if it's my Grim Reaper.

Greg and Kristen will make a huge comeback from this, and when you all get down to it.

It was not going to happen any other way anyhow

Her parents and Greg and the whole family will be reunited, they will know that they , in the end, did all that they knew how to do,
everyone will bewcome stronger and more lovingly.

It just aint gonna be easy.

Now, In that, is the mystery of life.

You know the kind. It blinds you , that's why it's so dark in our hearts.

Love to all, we to that accord were all designed to do, it just all got messed up.
