Police, federal officials raid doctor's office

I totally agree Govt Excess, lets put it this way Michael Jackson's doctor who basically is involved with a death, and administering propofol outside a hospital environment has still maintains the right to prescribe narcotics besides propofol? Dr. Houghton who is not involved with a death has been stripped of the prescription rights of all narcotics? Made for TV event, I get sick every day thinking of how wrong this is.  (Feb 9, 2010 | post #28)

The reality is none of us are saints, most of us try to be the best people we can be on a daily basis, and most of us who are not half off our rocker do not kick our fellow humans when they are down. I see that Jerry Farrell attacked Dr. Houghton for his own political gain. Jerry is running for Secretary of State he is in a position of power that allows him to get free publicity when he attempts to bring down a well loved doctor and in the name of public safety? Now the reality is he has egg on his face, he sees the outpouring of support from Dr. Houghton's patients and the local community he rushes to a judgment to justify his blatant waste of our tax payer dollars. The reality is Dr. Houghton is human and we all make mistakes. If he is convicted I will still support him until he gets his right to prescribe narcotics again. He is the one in the million doctor a treasure for the shoreline community. I realize that I am sorry that a few of you do not. I am sure you will have the same poor judgment and vote for Jerry Farrell in this election.  (Feb 8, 2010 | post #27)

Old Saybrook Doca s Registration Suspended After Raid

Dr. Houghton temporarily lost the right to prescribe narcotics or known as pain killers. He can still prescribe other prescription drugs. The media is so concerned about getting the story correct. Nice job NBC 30  (Feb 4, 2010 | post #1)

. How can so many people in our local community repeatedly stand up for Doctor Houghton? I have seen and heard person after person stand up for his professionalism and his character. . However, state officials somehow conclude he is an immediate threat to the community? Which community are we talking about? It just does not add up? . Sounds like we have the some state officials that made the decision to public-ally bring him down, and did not anticipate the out pouring of community support and now they have to save face to justify their actions. . The media has stated that he has lost his right to prescribe medicine. Not quite true, he has temporarily lost his right to prescribe pain killers or narcotics until his appeal. The media is not doing their homework and rushing and sensationalizing their story for ratings. . How come the media has not mentioned Dr Houghton's partner is Dr. Steven Gaudio? Why is only Dr. Houghton being investigated when he has a partner? . It sounds like a lot of people are judging a doctor that I personally know is one in a million. He is setting the standards of what care giver should be. Before a few of you cast stones at this man. Think about the last time your heard of a Doctor working 7 days a week for his patients, volunteering his spare time selflessly to the elderly. As well as working with in the shoreline school system volunteering his medical skills, consoling students, and coaching sports. An asset to our community. Please read and listen to all the people who are telling who he really is. People cannot believe it and I do not either that he is a threat to the community. HOG WASH!!!!  (Feb 4, 2010 | post #15)

Ok you have your opinion, I know Dr. Houghton will be cleared of all charges. It only takes one patient to be dis-satisfied and sorry you were that one. I appologize for not agreeing with you. Please be sure to post an apology when he is cleared on the news.  (Feb 3, 2010 | post #11)

Sounds like you were treated horribly, are you sure it was the same doctor? Because everyone that I have ever talked about him with has told me different. NEVER had we heard a comment like yours. Sounds like either personally you have an agenda or you are one of those people that can never be pleased. Doctors like Dr. Houghton are far and few between god bless him and his family to protect him from unkind people who judge before all the facts are presented.  (Feb 3, 2010 | post #7)
