Holy sh*t, I read what she prescribed one patient. 100 Xanax, 120 methadone, 80 Loricet, and 50 Oxidodone. The patient died 5 days later!!
This lady is a great example why people are dying and people blame it only on the methadone!!

She was a drug head herself. she let only druggies work for her. No proffesionalism in any way. Heard she was working out of her nasty trailer she lived in. Totally a joke to the medical field.

It is shocking to hear about such an incompetent doctor.
It's not unheard of in Los Angeles, either. I have personally come across one such physician here, who was "clearly
addicted" himself, but was still seeing patients and pre-
scribing medications until he went "God knows where."

On another subject, however, can anyone there in Blytheville give me any info about a vacant residential lot on 11th avenue? I was told that it is partially treed. What does the other part look like? What is on either side and front and back of the lot? Thanks.

11th street... North or South? To live on or develop?

You probably bought this lot throught a tax delinquent auction and chances are if it's vacant it's on the South end of town. Not to many vacant lots on North 11th Street. You see Blytheville is split into 2 sections (Have & Have Nots) Have Nots lose their property in Tax Delinquent auctions while the "Have" pay their taxes and take care of their property. Good Luck on building on your lot that probly 40'X 150', just the right size for a shotgun house.

They just don't seem to care what kind of drugs they give out. Drugs run rampant everywhere and I know that, but it seems the south has a bad reputation for it. You are correct. Yes, we have a bunch of uneducated people and our doctors seem to contribute to that kind of behavior. Although, there are alot of good doctors, there will always be those few that make it look bad for the rest.

For those of you who obviusly are not familiar with what a chronic pain Dr. does they deal mainly with people with cancer and other very painful diseases and as for the people who have died,if you check your facts you will find that they eighther drank or did illegal drugs with their scripts,and just so ya know,every Dr. has patients that do the same thing only with most of the Dr.,s heree in bly. you have to pay cash for your visits to get those kinds of meds,one doc. has the nickname prosac pete! I bet you know who HE is dont ya! and another killed a set of twins that my niece was going to have!But you know why you dont here about them?It's because they signed agreements to see patients every 15 minutes to go along with the powers that be,one of them almost let my mother die because of their little rule!And as far as all her patients being druggies,it's usually the drug seekers that say that!,because they get mad when she refuses to see them!
And just because our great news paper doesn;t report on the folks that got their cases moved to little rock because they dont want people to know just how bad things really are here,dont get me wrong I love this place but until there are more than six people running this town,it"s not going to be known for more than anything except the third largest crack stop in Arkansas.
Just ask cat daddy and greg larrimore,we have the best legal system around!

Jon,
Although you did assume wrong, for MAPS does live with pain daily, I was impressed that you apologized about what you wrote. Many people around here may have simply left without saying a word.
Good for you, Jon.

Sorry folks, but this one really burns my bu++, no pun on the "doctor" intended. I understand that there are people who suffer from chronic pain, but as the parent of a young adult this "doctor" was KIND ENOUGH to supply with scripts let me tell you...this side of the fence is not a comfortable place to be either. Yes, I am telling you that anyone can go knock on her trailer door, hand some cash to her son and walk away with a legitimate script for their "legal" drug of choice.

Laugh, judge, don't believe, whatever you choose but "doctors" like the bu+ lady are a scourge on society. When I first realized what was going on I googled the good doctor, I encourage all of you to do the same...not only will you find a lot of information on her, you may be as surprised as I was to read an article from several years ago where one of our once local politicians sang her praises! Of course, he's since moved his family away from the area...if I'm not mistaken, I think it's about time for his only biological child to start jr high...things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
