    I just checked the California State Medical License Board, to see if there were any updates regarding Dr Eric Gordon.

    I think we all are already aware of his 3 year probation, in the State of Calfornia:

    https://search.dca.ca.gov/details/8002/G/82342/8ca7d731335157205e64c5fa0e390c5a

    But what struck me was the action the State of New York took in July of last year.

    https://apps.health.ny.gov/pubdoh/p...icianDetailsAction.action?finalActionId=12038

    https://apps.health.ny.gov/pubdoh/p...Id=12038&fileName=BRD+146414.pdf&fileSeqNum=1

    It appears as though while Dr Gordon continues to practice in California, the State of New York was not lenient and asked him to surrender his license.

    “The physician did not contest the charge of having committed professional misconduct by having been disciplined by the Medical Board of the State of California, Department of Consumer Affairs for negligence and incompetence; prescribing without an appropriate prior examination or medical indication; excessive prescribing and failure to maintain accurate patient medical records.”

    We kind of saw this coming. It is a tough call for a doctor when patients in pain come to them.

    The “war on opioids” being waged by today’s policymakers is, in effect, a “war on patients in pain.”

    Sometimes it is a whole lot easier to put a bandaid on it than to actually look for a better solution. There are also going to be those patients that have no other option than to take powerful pain meds. In this case both the doctor and the patient are assuming the risk.

    For Dr. Gordon the easy route is going to sink his practice.

    You can set up which ever doctor in the state of California to receive a notification if there are any changes to their medical license.

    So, basically you can 'track the quacks'! :thumbup:

    You can track up to 16 CA docs!


    Super Cool! Yippee! Stay tuned!
