I recently offered 25,000 dollars in prizes to anyone who could disprove that Dr. Luis Sanchez committed multiple felonies based on documents that provide direct evidence of a chargeable crime. No additional evidence is needed. So far no one has been knocking at my door and nary a call from anyone.
How can we interpret this? Are the prizes not worthy of the time involved in such an endeavor? No, I think there is something for everyone including 2oo volumes of the Classics in Medicine. A current listing on Amazon is listing 187 volumes for almost $5000 and in addition to this I am offering dozens of 1970s skateboards, 2 vintage Schwinn Krate bikes, autographs from polio vaccine pioneers Sabin and Salk, multiple signed and one-of-a-kind items related to Boston politician James Michael Curley, a menu, cocktail menu, matchbook and other very rare items from Boston’s Cocoanut Grove which was the site of the deadliest nightclub fire in history in 1942, signed lithographs and prints from Warhol and Keith Haring and a signed poster from Adam Ant. So the prizes are not chopped liver and burnt toast. The prizes are worthy so in a time or work/benefit analysis the benefits are high. What about the time or work involved? Would the work and time it takes to disprove this claim make it not worth the effort like trying to prove some logic or mathematical theorem? The James Randi Educational Foundation offered 1 million dollars to anyone who could prove that homeopathy works but no one has claimed it yet. Why? Because homeopathy does not work. My challenge is fairly simple as the documents are a quick read and the claims direct and specific. All one has to do is read the documents in search of acts that might be considered crimes and use a legal reference to see if they correspond to criminal code. If your examination of the documents finds everything is on the up-and-up or just one or two acts commensurate with felonies then the prizes are yours. A simple task that should take less than an hour or two. So why is no one knocking at my door? No one is knocking for the same reason the million dollar homeopathy reward hasn’t been claimed. The reason no one is knocking at my door is because Luis Sanchez did in fact commit multiple felonies. I could double the prizes, give you everything I own and offer my very soul but there would still be no one knocking.
So the question for us is this, how is it possible that an individual contracted by a state agency could commit felony crimes that are documented by direct evidence and not be called on it? The crimes include flagrant forensic fraud no different from Annie Dookhan who faked, forged and fabricated some 60,00 samples at the Massachusetts crime lab. Fabricating evidence is fabricating evidence so how is it possible that this fabrication of evidence has not been identified and addressed by anyone? First of all there is no direct oversight or independent oversight to state physician health programs (PHPs). Not one agency exists that can accept a complaint, investigate it and punish offenders. Second, there is an inability or unwillingness to investigate or punish the offenders for various reasons. PHPs have portrayed themselves as allies to law enforcement and have requested they defer to them any issues related to physicians. When crimes are reported to local and state police and other law-enforcement agencies they are deemed the illusory product of a diseased mind. States Attorneys General legally represent occupation board. Policy dictates they side with medical boards so individual doctors are rebuffed if they ask for help. The FBI will not investigate. I was told unless the AGO requested it or a public outcry ensued they would not address any issues regarding physician health programs including laboratory fraud and diagnosis rigging. This inability or unwillingness to meaningfully investigate the offenders is a pervasive problem and represent a total systems failure. No one is minding the minders and no one wants to mind the minders. The agencies that could and should investigate crimes are taking a “not-my-problem” stance. The medical boards have agreed to absolute deference to PHPs and additionally have individuals or groups within the board who are able to block, deflect and otherwise dismiss information implicating the state PHP. All of the documents seen below were provided to Physician Health and Compliance Board counsel Deb Stoller beginning in 20111 but she apparently kept all the documents to herself. Her ethical obligation when being provided with evidence of forensic fraud and other crimes was to notify the proper authorities. She did not. She suppressed all of the information with direct evidence of crimes, an act that is much more grave and vile than Dookhan as the documents show collusion between the MA PHP and one of the drug testing labs used by almost all state PHPs. The documents provide direct evidence of lab fraud and falsification of evidence that is clear and specific. No alternative explanations exist. Concealing this type of misconduct just allows it to continue and what is seen here is not rare. I have heard from many many doctors who claim they were given bogus tests at this very same lab. Sadly I have heard of many suicides related to these very same tests. Faced with the “not my problem” stance of agencies that could and should do something but did not these doctors became hopeless and helpless and killed themselves out of despair. Their locus of control was completely lost and their was no lifeline. Selective application of the law is the root of government corruption and destroys the moral authority of the government. It inevitably leads to collapse and chaos. The Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine has ignored these documents for five years and assert that the PHP has not committed any crimes because they have not been charged with any crimes. Nonsense and logical fallacy. The PHP did commit crimes and so too did Board attorney Deb Stoller when she was given direct evidence of them–misprision of a felony in multiples.
Ignoring misconduct not only allows it to continue it allows it to spread. The plan is to spread these same non-FDA approved of unknown validity and easily manipulated with no accountability to other populations including students and kids. It was also recently suggested that the organization Luis Sanchez is past president of, the Federation of State Physician Health Programs (FSPHP) be put in charge of national public policy for not just doctors but for everyone.
The simple fact is that doctors are being subject to diagnostic rigging and forensic fraud and nobody cares. This is by design and fueled by the anti-doctor sentiment spread by these same groups with propaganda meant to spread the bogus dangers of a hidden cadre of drug addled and besotted doctors. It doesn’t exist but the stature of doctors in the public eye has suffered because of the mythology they created. Don’t get me wrong as any doctor with a substance abuse problem or addiction should be removed from practice and not be able to practice until safe to do so. But that is not what is happening here.
The majority of doctors being monitored by state physician health programs do not have a problem. They have loosened the diagnostic criteria so that essentially anyone referred to them is given a diagnosis and treated. Why? Because it is a money maker. All costs are out-of-pocket and no insurance is involved. The “PHP-approved” assessment centers all charge around $ 4500 for an “assessment” which inevitably leads to a 3-month inpatient stay for treatment to the tune of about $80,000. This is then followed by a five-year monitoring contract with random drug and alcohol testing 1-3 x per week. That is a total of 260 to 780 tests and the laboratory developed tests are not cheap. You do the math. The drug and alcohol assessment and testing industry makes a pretty penny off this operation and they want to bring it to you-It is in fact a Trojan horse.
So by ignoring this type of misconduct it will only get worse. People tend not to get concerned unless it impacts them. This will. Someday you or a family member may be in this same situation. It boggles my mind that doctors can be given diagnoses when they do not meet the criteria for the given diagnosis and this is confirmed by outside independent experts. This occurs because those giving the diagnosis have no accountability. They have removed themselves. But in actual fact this is political abuse of psychiatry. It is egregious.
Diagnosing someone with a disease they do not have should be a never event. The perpetrators should not only have their licenses removed but they should be punished for the crime. Forensic fraud should also be a never-event but as seen below it is done without fear of sanction-by fax no less. Giving false diagnoses and fabrication of drug and alcohol tests are actions that should never be tolerated. Not even once. How can this be happening in the United States of America? Unless people speak up this will only escalate. Below is a detailed analysis of the multiple crimes used for the $25,000 challenge. Give it a read and try to disprove the claim that Luis Sanchez committed multiple felonies. If you can you win all the prizes. If you can’t then I ask that you be outraged and do something about it as you or someone you love may be next. Ignoring this type of misconduct is not going to make anything better.
Fraud is distinguished from negligence, ignorance, and error by virtue of the fact that it is intentional. Fraudulent intent is established by examining the documentation of decisions and behaviors of those involved.
Innocent parties don’t normally alter documents or conceal information.
Innocent parties don’t normally “update” donor ID numbers or lab reports to “reflect that chain of custody be maintained as requested in the document below faxed from Physician Health Services, Inc. (PHS) to United States Drug Testing Laboratories (USDTL) on July 19th, 2011.
The lab report PHS is referring to is seen below which is positive for the alcohol biomarker phosphatidylethanol at a level of 365.4 ng/ml (cutoff level for a positive test is 20 ng/ml.
Note both the chain of custody and Donor ID # are listed as 461430 and there is no collection date, collectors name or location listed. The specimen was received on July 8, 2011 and reported on July 14, 2011 according to the document. On July 19th, 2011 Mary Howard requests that a collection date of July 1st, 2011 be added and that the Donor ID # be changed from 461430 to #1310.
What is the significance of this? My unique identifier for for random drug and alcohol testing is #1310 and I had this same test drawn on July 1st, 2011.
The document are from the USDTL “Litigation Packet” received December 3, 2011 which can be seen here: USDTL-LitigationPacket12:2011
USDTL “updated” the test. The document below shows they added my ID # and a collection date of July 1, 2011.
It is the responsibility of the Medical Review Officer (MRO) to make the final determination as to whether or not the positive result reported by the laboratory is reported to anyone else.
The previous Medical Director of the Massachusetts PHP, Physicians Health Services, Inc. (PHS) for fourteen years, Dr. Luis Sanchez, is also a past President of the FSPHP although PHS did not enter into formal partnership with the FSPHP until 2013. The Director of Program Operations at PHS, Linda R. Bresnahan, MS, is the current Secretary of the FSPHP.
PHS, inc. exclusive use of out of state treatment programs has been challenged. In the past PHS, Inc. has adamantly refused to allow physicians to be evaluated in State despite it being one of the medical hubs of the country. Physicians in Massachusetts who are referred for evaluation in Kansas, Georgia, Alabama, and West Virginia as PHS has convinced the Board that only these facilities are ‘experienced in the assessment and treatment of health care professionals.” In actual fact the medical directors of all of these preferred facilities are also ASAM physicians with the vast majority being in 12-step “recovery” themselves and a close colleague if not friend of the medical director of the state PHP.
