Doctor Facing Malpractice Suit for Suicide


A reporter has learned that a Hilltown, PA, doctor is not only facing a medical malpractice lawsuit, he has also been charged with trading pills for sexual favors. The 68-year old physician stands accused of more than a dozen drug related charges for his alleged involvement in prescribing medication to several women for sex.

The sister of a 31-year old woman stated that her sister had received several prescriptions from the accused doctor, including for at least six different drugs the day before she died. The source also learned that with each prescription the woman received from the doctor, she at least had to show her breasts to him. Some of the drugs the doctor prescribed to the 31-year old woman were in her blood stream the day she died include Oxycodone, Diazepam, Zolpidem, Amitriptyline, Sertraline and Carisoprodol. All reportedly prescribed by the doctor to the woman the day before she overdosed.

The medical malpractice lawsuit that has been filed against the doctor is for his alleged role in the suicide death of a local police detective; the reporter was told. Reports include the detective had recent surgery on his shoulder and had been off from work for about three months. The accused doctor was the detective’s private doctor so he consulted with him regarding his experiencing some anxiety over returning to work. His doctor prescribed Xanax at a dosage of 1mg. Within one month, the dosage was increased to 8 mg. Most reports stipulate that 8 mg is a large dosage of the drug that has been known for suicidal thoughts to be one of its side effects. Before the end of the month, the detective was dead following a self-inflicted gunshot.

These are but two instances the doctor is reported to have legal problems over. The criminal case against him lists several females that the doctor allegedly prescribed medication for sex, and thus far, neither the criminal case, nor the lawsuit has made it to court yet. The rest of the facts will soon be discovered.

Police were able to affect the doctor’s arrest due to an unrelated investigation, which indirectly lead to his prescribing medication for sex. This took place in The Bronx and Westchester County.
