Corruption of the Medical System–Medical Fraud!

I received a phone call today from the CA Board of Medicine, where I filed against many doctors who messed up during the treatment of my mother. The mess-up ended up in her death for no reason. There were many medical malpractice type issues but there was this one case I want to bring your attention to since this can happen to you any day and anywhere.

There was this one “doctor” who appears to have practiced without license as I later found out. When I filed the complaint with the CA Board of Medicine (there is a complaint form to fill out with standard questions), it included space for the license number of the doctor. I called the medical office where he was employed and asked for his license number. I was told “oh he works under doctor Y’s license number.” So I immediately knew that there is something fishy here. Next I asked for Dr. Y’s license number and I was refused.

Just so you know, the doctor’s license number is public information and they have no right to refuse to provide it. This further underlined my suspicion of stinky fish.

Thus in the form where it asked for X’s license number, knowing he did not have one, I placed Dr. Y’s name! Submitted the form and waited. I received a confirmation letter from the CA Board of Medicine confirming the complaint against Dr. Y! What??? I filed for X and not Y. Clearly X has no license so what happened here?

The CA Board of Medicine switched the names!

Meaning I filed against X who appears to not have a license and is working under the license of doctor Y. So they changed my complaint against doctor X to Y who had a license and dropped X since he was not in the database!

I sent them a fax–which the case worker said he has not yet seen–reminding them that it is X who I had a problem with and if he practiced medicine without a license, that is a criminal act, and I need to know that so I can throw his case to the DA for criminal charges. And if this is the case, doctor Y is also guilty and will have to face the law since he knowingly employed someone without a doctor’s license and sent him to act as a doctor, writing prescriptions!

I need to know this because these are federal crimes!

I had to repeat this 3 times–I hope he understood… I may have to repeat it a few more times before the CA Board of Medicine realizes that I am filing a medical fraud case against a person who is not a doctor or is acting without a license… they will not understand it because if he has no license, his name will not be in the database and will come out as “no charge against him is possible;” I bet you!

The law and all the people in it are clueless and the people in medicine are corrupt. This is a system that will be very hard to change but we must! If you have similar stories, do not let it go without action! You must do something so we can change the system. The least you should do is send me a note so I know about it. I do not use names as you can see but if no one does anything about this, the system will continue to get worse!

Please send me notes in private: angela@migraine-book.com or comment in public here or join the closed group CluelessDoctors on Facebook and post your experiences there. I am going to collect all kinds of stories to point out our clueless doctors and corrupt medical system!

About Be Healthy

Angela A Stanton, PhD, is a Neuroeconomist who evaluates changes in behavior, chronic pain, decision-making, as a result of hormonal variations in the brain. She lives in Southern California. Her current research is focused on migraine cause, prevention and treatment without the use of medicines. As a migraineur, her discovery was helped by experimenting on herself. She found the cause of migraine to be at the ionic level, associated with disruption of the electrolyte homeostasis, resulting from genetic mutations of insulin and glucose transporters, and voltage gated sodium and calcium channel mutations. Such mutations cause major shifts in a migraine brain, unlike that of a non-migraine brain. A non-migraineur can handle electrolyte changes on autopilot. A migraineur must always be on manual guard for such changes to maintain electrolyte homeostasis. The book Fighting The Migraine Epidemic: How To Treat and Prevent Migraines Without Medicines - An Insider's View explains why we have migraines, how to prevent them and how to stay migraine (and medicine) free for life. As a result of the success of the first edition of her book and new research and findings, she is now finishing the 2nd edition. The 2nd edition is the “holy grail” of migraines, incorporating all there is to know at the moment and also some hypotheses. It includes an academic research section with suggestions for further research. The book is full of citations to authenticate the statements she makes to be followed up by those interested and to spark further research interest. While working on the 2nd edition of the book she also published academic articles: "Migraine Cause and Treatment" Mental Health in family Medicine, November 23, 2015, open access "Functional Prodrome in Migraines" Journal of Neurological Disorders, January 22, 2016, open access "Are Statistics Misleading Sodium Reduction Benefits?", Journal of Medical Diagnostic Method, February 3, 2016, open access “A Comment on Severe Headache or Migraine History Is Inversely Correlated With Dietary Sodium Intake: NHANES 1999-2004” Angela A Stanton PhD, 19 July 2016 DOI: 10.1111/head.12861 not open access, subscription is required to read it. Dr. Stanton received her BSc at UCLA in Mathematics, MBA at UCR, MS in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, PhD in NeuroEconomics at Claremont Graduate University, and fMRI certification at Harvard University Medical School at the Martinos Center for Neuroimaging for experimenting with neurotransmitters on human volunteers. For relaxation Dr. Stanton paints and photographs. Follow her on Twitter at: @MigraineBook

    wow – sounds like a headache doing all this algebra to just file paper work (x and y) – but you are correct that it is wrong – and well, shame on any doctor who uses some one else’s lic. number.
