If they raided ten doctor's offices why is Dr. Lundeen the only written about
in the article.
It does not surprise me that he is one of the top prescribers after all he had several offices going in the state. Some days he would be in 2-3 different
offices. He may be in his Portsmouth office in the A.M. and be in the Marion
office in the P.M. then he may drive to his Willard office.
One minor correction he does not have an office anymore. he closed it.
This raid does not surprise me at all. Every time they get a worker's comp doctor who can help the people so they can have a half way chance of having a life so they can live with pain they get rid of them. The pulled the same s@@t with Dr. Gilliam.
This slime ball has been on Worker's Comp radar for at least 10 years (I know I was looking at his miserable practices then) and he has had as many as 13 offices statewide. If you think giving someone narcotics and not following any treatment protocols is helping anyone then you must be seriously narced

<quoted text> Mercy whom is it your protecting? You live 4 mile's from Piketon and you act like you don't have a clue whom the people that I mentioned, you don't know them? Sorry I don't believe you. My "Precious doctor" You are the nut, because I don't deal with any doctor or hospital in Southern Ohio, I WOULD BE NUT'S. I don't have any problem's with my Medicine so, you are defiling on the wrong tract.lol You said you work all your life what here in pike county where jobs' a few? But, State and Government is everywhere. Pike county is mostly government. I'll say about 90% so, where did you work all your life and the only reason I ask this is because you are trying to make me as if I don't know what i'm talking about. All this stuff is related to the bwc scandal. Just because BWC stoled hundred's of million's of dollar's from injured worker's and seeing that bwc spends about $50.000.000 a year on Prescriptions it's kinda obvious one way to make back what they stoled from the injured worker, stop their med's. Let the poor man and women sit home in pain because you being related or employed by the state, you get all your med's real easy. I tell you viewer's don't listen to that MARCY person she knows me and the people that I worked for and their name's are the Roberts. They run pike cac, the health center's and Pike metropolitan . And, a lot of weird stuff happens around here.?????? I ASK FOR A POLYGRAPH TEST ON THESE ISSUE'S BUT, NO BODY WANTS TO SIT WITH ME AND TAKE IT' AND THAT IS A HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAA. This is only the tip of the harassment that my wife and myself has experience since my injury at a Private State Agency. We have tried to get Attorney's but, nobody wants to deal with State agency's. If we had an Attorney I know we would win but, the FBI KNOW'S WHATS HAPPENING. They involved my spouse in my injury case and they had no right doing that but, I understand it wasn't your wife so who cares'. And, that nut "Mercy", I wouldn't put something like the thing's I say on a public page if it was not true.
You need some serious menatal health treatment.....and there are attorneys who will take just about any worker's comp case so you must really be a trip

ATTACKING YOU !!!!!!!!!! So get a GRIP!!!!
I have first hand knowledge in my previous working life and the injured worker doesn't pay anyone so get it right, it's the employers who pay into a fund to pay medical bills and indemnity for injured workers

Once you do this and get your list of doctors call them all and ask them if they are accepting worker's compensation patients. Better yet, do your search for Portsmouth Ohio within a 50-100 mile radius. There are thousands of doctors who may be on a list of approved doctors on the BWC website however very few are actually still treating workers comp patients due to the delays and difficulty to get a simple office visit approved. This is what you should have done prior to your comment as it only confirms the false assumptions people make without actually checking their facts instead of simply believing whatever B.S. is printed in the paper or said on the news.
Many don't want to treat BWC patients because of so many injured workers who go to them with drug seeking behavior....druggies so to speak......BWC pays more than any othe rinsurance company for a visit so it must be something more like....... druggie.......

<quoted text>injured worker do pay,I was injured at work where I had many deductions takin out off my check,I worked and did as I was suppose to,but when I missed up my back while taking care of the sick,I couldnt even get off the couch without help,your workers comp person was very mean,said I wasnt bed fast or on a walker so there was no reason I could not go to work,I understand there is a lot sceeming the system,I couldnt work for three years,and still have to take something for pain or I would never make it.But every dr you go to acts as if your faking,and a lot are,but for the workers comp person sure act as if its coming out of thier pocket,if I set behind a desk all day and been rude to people I wouldnt have hurt myself
If you had a deduction taken out of your pay then you need to call BWC's Fraud unit and report the employer....the employer pays the BWC premium twice a year and that is what pays for your medical or pay when off work

Hey you " common sense " did you tell your buddies' you know Ted Strickland, David Dicken you know the "Pervert's" that they needed "MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT" Did you read about the million's bwc stoled? Do you know who David Dickens is? But, you rather tell an injured worker that has been put through hell by these "PERVERT'S that are in charge of Ohio? What you don't have the ball's to say something bad about Pervert's and the top state trooper that allowed this under age sex stuff to continue? but rather talk about an injured man? That's what the problem here in Ohio is, this Government has their people here in Ohio head's so screwed up they just don't see or understand that the Government here is worst then the gang banger's that I grew up with in California.? You are reading it for your self on this web-site page. How much more do you freaken need? Did you read about Your Governor : TED STRICKLAND? READ IT? DID YOU READ ABOUT THE TOP STATE TROOPER OF OHIO (THE PLACE WHERE YOU LIVE) "OHIO" DID YOU READ ABOUT THE BWC SCADAL? HUNDREDS OF MILLION DOLLARS GONE, GONE, MISSING, GONE.? Do you understand the top people that are " IN- CHARGE " of OHIO are the one's that stoled the money and are involved in under age sex with under age people? Do I have 2 spell it out for you? You people disagree with each other and that is your right but, where is it getting you "US". Ohio is full of good people with lot's of respect and well manered but, that is why " THEY " are taking advantage of the Ohio Civilian's? Do you think I need some " Mental Help "? I gave you permission to ask my Attorney Kurt L. Niermeyer about the IC Security Guard and what Happened? A week later the Church caught fire. Look in the " The Pike County News Watchman " Wednesday, March 31, 2010. And, some of the later paper's tells you how the suspect has a government Attorney and I can't get an ATTORNEY to listen to me or my wife? Then get The Pike County News Watchman WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 9,2011 AND READ ABOUT A RICHIE BRUSHART, THE STATE HIT-MAN AND SEE HOW ONE OF HIS VICTIM'S WAS ABLE TO ESCAPE OUT OF THE FRONT DOOR BUT, RICHIE SHOT HIM IN THE BACK? I've been telling people here for 3 year's about this hit man and I prove it every time? But, since my INJURY AT A PRIVATE STATE AGENCY I NEED MENTAL HELP. I'm not the bad guy but, that is what our government does when you are the target.? ALL THE S**T THIS GOVERNMENT HAS DONE OVER THE LAST 21 YEAR'S AND YOU SAY " I'M THE BAD GUY " HOW SIMPLE CAN YOU BE? PUT ME ON A POLYGRAPH TEST. I VOLUNTEER, BRING IT ON BUT, YOU WON'T.........

Are you saying Richie is a hit man? This is too funny for words !!!!!!! LOFLMAO

The guy that did the arson at the church had a court appointed lawyer that everyone has. Richie has even used the same type lawyer in past cases.
Is that a government lawyer? Have you read the court dockets on his case at all? Settle down, there big fellow, he wasn't after you. LOFLMAO

Yep a true California TRIP and to bad your so far behind time you don't even see your own government stealing from you? care when your state people is stealing for ya all. Califonian's get justice and thats why the state is broke but at least the Political People don't get the money. Here you people allow Governor's, Attorneys, bwc hell the political people here think the citizen's will not do what California people do. In the West they'll burn down the city when this sh*t happens. Look at all the corruption even the top state trooper doing under age females. Ohio is mostly white people and we know their not violent so lets take from them. HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAW . I'm not being a smart ass but it's true. Here in Pike county Ohio people get hurt here the state employee's start telling everybody that their not hurt and only want a pay check and the only reason for that is so the state employee's can save the money for their little spoiled brat's. I know many spoiled brats and their parents are state employee's and these spoiled brats are to young to be at home just partying it up. But, mommy loves them. Pike cac community action is suppose to be for the needy but, I see how it works if your not related to somebody special in this town your chances of receiving SSI etc, are very slim but, if you are related to somebody special ( state employee etc.) then you don't need to be hurt to receive ssi just being lazy and your get it. I have ask for my behavior after having gun's next to my head at the ic office in Portsmouth on march 17,2010 and a week later the hamman church next to my home catches fire and I do believe I was being lured out side. The suspect slit his wrist and now we will never know whom sent this guy to start the fire because he now has a Government attorney? Do you see how I think but the 2 crazy doctor's that I RECOMMEND to see on my own said that I was fine? So, according to the state of Ohio I blend right in heeeeeehaaaaaaw. If nancy grace had some of my information she would flip out.

You sure do like a man "Richie Brushart" that shot another man in the back while running for his life.? How sick for you to defend this Richie? You are related to some body state or government in this town? There was a time people hated somebody for shooting another man in the back but, look at you, why are you defending a man that went to that motel and Richie didn't even know this Steve Hartley but heard he sold drug's and Richie was there to steal them but, lucky for steve he was able to save his life and while running Richie shot him in the back. So, tell me why do you defend Richie so much? I was a home repair forman at pike cac, well, the guardian company that Roger Patton ran like a dog pound and called you people dumphillbilly's and Eddie Kitts was sitting right beside me when Roger said this but, I understand no pride when it comes to money. You know people were coming in early off the clock while Roger was on the clock do you see how they get you people to work for free while their sitting on the clock. sad. Richie is Tony Graves nephew and Tony lives with Ray Roberts the executive of Pike CAC. They hired Richie knowing Richie was a major thief and allowed him to go into clients homes unsupervised. O THATS RIGHT YOU LIVE IN WAVERLY AND YOU DON'T TRAVEL THAT FAR TO PIKETON AND YOU DON'T KNOW PEOPLE REAL FAR AWAY FROM YOU. what a joke and you mercy need to stop defending your evil people and your state/government family friends what ever the case maybe. HEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAW. We will be watching out to see what happens to Richie. Early that day he shot that man in the back Richie also commented a home break-in.? Wow, wonder if Richie might spend the night in jail for all that stuff.? He was already on Parol wow wonder if his parol officer knew if Richie got arrested.??

I only know Richie because he lived in Waverly, and i know he has been in trouble of one sort or another for years from news articles and court records.
I wouldn't know him if I was sitting beside him @ McDonald's though on sight.
I think he knew the guy he shot, it was a drug deal from what I hear. I don't know that guy either though. I don't associate with that type.
I also don't know any of the people that work in the welfare places like Community Action that are in the boss category, might know some people that work for them, but not them even though it is only 5 miles away. I never had any dealings with any of those places so I don't have any reason to know them.I've never been inside the building.
