He absolutely did give out HUGE amounts of pain meds to patients, 240-360 count of Darvocet? Norco? Vicodin? Per Month?!(and that was 4-5 years ago!) How about sending them to a specialist? Or try to get them off these meds? Instead of getting them off these meds he would up the doses because after a while they were ineffective. One thing that was disturbing; a patinet would stop by once or twice a month for Norco (high amounts) and would crush the pills to mix in his bottle water. Yes in front of us! Was it a red flag to anyone else but me? No!

Oh, and he may have turned you down for the diet program but that was rare. Even if you wanted to loose pounds he still would have given you diet pills. And by the way, to anyone who has been on the program; the fiber pill was mislabeled and he knew it. You were taking a laxative not actual fiber (generic for Senekot) which is a stimulant. Which is somethiing that can mess up your system if taken for a long period of time. Recognizing signs of an eating disorder was not a priority, as long as the patient came in every week (or month) and paid for their pills.

To someone I haven't met. I was before your time and I still agree with you on Alma. She is just as guilty! She managed the office (though she would deny being the office manager) and helped him order all those pills. She knew it was wrong. She was his close friend!(Though we all knew that she left her husband to be with him!) She needs to be prosecuted as well!

Sorry, no. It started way way before he hired those assistants.

I have known Dr. Healy since he opened his practice in Duarte. A family member worked in his office. I went to school with some of his kids. He always seemed like a good kind man, but you just don't know about people. Greed makes people do starange and often illegal things. I don't believe it started out as a drug dealing operation but that's sure what happened. I know I went to see him a few years back when I hurt my back and didn't have insurance. I paid him for a vist and did get an exam but I also left with Two bottles of pain killers. I never went back for refills but if I was one with an addictive personality I probably would have. In the industry that I work in I have heard rumors about his practice but choose not to believe that this was the man I knew. However like I said Greed makes people do terrible things. I pray for his family that they find the strength to deal with this. I know that anyone who worked in that small office had to know what was going on! There are no oinnocent bystanders there!

Its because of the licensed drug dealers in this world that the census at rehab centers are at an all time high.Just because a man has an MD after his name people are willing to throw the benefit of the doubt card on the table and excuse the behavior of the medical profession. We should applaud the agency's that have been proactive in this investigation and understand that when a case like this gets to this point a ton of information has been gathered that we know nothing about. I can't think of any agency that is willing to go this far without being almost certain that it is a prosecutable case. Hopefully his "patients" won't be turning to the streets to to acquire their "medicine" and they can see fit to get the help they need.

I still remember the good old days before that witch ALMA came into the picture. He was a very loving and kind Doctor who really cared for his patients at one time. Unfortunately he met ALMA who as soon as she came in to that office she ruined it by her influence little by little. It's a shame to see how greed and money can overcome someone so kind. He unfortunately became blind to Alma's greed and before he knew it he was caught up into it. Alma all I have to say to you is you will get yours soon. What goes around COMES AROUND and you will pay for the HELL you put employees and patients through. The whole "cash only" was your idea. You should be the one sitting in jail as we speak you are EVIL and plain out MEAN. You don't care about anyone but yourself!!! It's unfortunate how many lives have been affected by this as I know myself many families have been destroyed. It's the stuff that goes on behind closed doors that people can't and don't want to understand.

I was just in Dr. Healy's office one week ago because I had a sinus infection. As ALWAYS, my blood pressure and weight was taken.
Dr. Healy listened to my complaint, examined my ears, eyes and throat and asked me a series of related questions (how long have you had this?... Do you have headaches?... Are you dizzy?...).
He prescribed an antibiotic and NEVER offered to sell me anything.
As a matter of fact, I have been a medical patient of his for 22 years now. He has been my ONLY doctor, and not once has there been anything seemingly wrong with his practice or his performance.
Dr. Healy's office is in Duarte on Huntington Drive, near a bus drop off point. The area his practice is in is not the best of all areas, I know Dr Healy stopped accepting Medical Insurance a long time ago, and knew it was because the hassles of people NOT paying. Just to keep an office staff to track down dead beats was not beneficial. It was clearly posted that they did not accept medical insurance anymore. Not a problem for those of us who have trust in him and want to keep Dr. Healy as our medical doctor, even if we have to submit the claims to our insurance companies ourselves.
I paid cash for my visit last week ($65.00) and asked if "I" could turn the receipt into my insurance company. He promptly said "Yes, by all means".
There have been a few new faces in his office staff, so I hope they find that it was someone other than Healy who these charges might be attributed to. Either way, even if Dr Healy is found innocent, these news stories and charges will never be recanted and his practice and life will never be the same.
Again, speaking as a long time patient, I never witnessed any wrong-doing. It is NOT in Dr Healy's demeanor to ask if someone wanted the "party-size".
If Dr Healy is at fault, I hope they throw the book at him, but I would give him the benefit of the doubt and hope my judgement of this man is correct.
