VD(J) Interviews an Advertiser/Doc

VD is interviewing Dr. Dave Stone. An advertiser on his program.

Interestingly Dr. Stone lists as his professional address Lakeland Hospital, the local psychiatric care hospital. But he says that he will come to your house (for cash or check only) to treat what ails ya'.

Interesting again -- because according to the license division of the Missouri Board of Healing Arts David Stone's medical license is "on probation" until June 18, 2008. He must be supervised by another physician designated by the Missouri Board of Healing Arts. Does his probation physician follow him to your house?

See the documents HERE ....

And why is he on probation, and you should invite him into your house to treat you?

Cause of Discipline: Violation of Section 334.100.2(1), (4)(g), (6) and (23), RSMo 1994. The Board found cause to discipline Licensee based on the use of controlled substances to the extent that it impaired Licensee's ability to practice; violation of drug laws; a pattern of personal use or consumption of controlled substances not otherwise prescribed or administered by another physician; and the surrender of Licensee's DEA controlled substance registration. Board Action: License was publicly reprimanded and placed on 5 years probation. Effective 6/18/97.

Interesting that he hasn't done his homework (again!!!!). He appears to be turning into Billy Long, advertising his friends.

Also, why do you think it is that on todays podcast, you are unable to get the second part of his interview with Ray McGovern? I didn't get to hear him live, but I suspect that since he looked so stupid during the first half of the interview, he was afraid to put up the second half for all the world to confirm it.

This is a common problem with psychiatrists in our area. There have been at least two others in Dr Stones predictament in the last few years. Another psyc. Od' on Oxicotin a few years back and another ran his car into a light pole and died after being indited for possiion of cocaine.

I am not sure that he has any board certification in psychiatry. His records seemed to indicate that he was a general practitioner. I was of mixed opinion about whether or not to publish this one. Drug abuse among docs is probably more common than thought, usually Rx drugs rather than something like cocaine. Most docs are able to get the monkey off their back and continue some sort of career, but there were hints in the record that DR. Stone is/was having difficulty shaking his addiction.

Perhaps he has an office connected with Lakland Hospital ... on the other hand, he may be a patient. I simply don't know, other than if it were a medical office it would be unusual to be trying to sell his services for home care. What made me really suspicious when I first heard his commercials was the "cash only" stipulation. This means that medicare or insurance companies will not honor his claims for treatment.

If his office/residence is Lakeland, I wish him the best in his long road to recovery ... perhaps this is actually a part of his treatment, and reintroducing him to society. On the other hand, inviting this person into your home who has this history I think is risky, particularly since it appears that he does not talk about his former addiction.

As I say, I found that publishing this one to be a tough call -- and I think what finally swayed me is that physicians who get into substance abuse problems typically leave the community to get a clean start. For some reason, he has chosen not to do so.

And Miss Prim ... interesting that that part wasn't up. He was definitely outclassed by someone who actually knew what he was talking about. Even made the claim that Jesus was talked about in the Old Testament ... I about died laughing at him. He doesn't seem to realize tha the entire concept of the trinity was a compromise brokered by Constantine in 325 CE and even at that it only wion by one vote. Hardly biblical.

And when it was shown that he knew as little about the Bible as he does about anything else, he did what he does all morning. He moved the goalpost. I could just visualize MGovern sitting there grinning from ear to ear knowing how he just did a great GOTTCHA' !!

Psychiatrists have one of the highest suicide rates when looked at by profession. Police, social workers, etc., like psychiatrists, spend their time listening to, or, especially in the case of cops, experiencing the horrors some people endure every day. It takes a kind of granite strength to do this without turning to dope, suicide, bad relationships, etc. And though some of these folks should just change jobs, most of them should be lauded for sticking with it and still trying to help.

Yeah .. shrinks and dentists ... I think part of it has to do with the feeling that what they do doesn't help patients very much (in the case of dentists I think it's just because noone wants to see them)

That seems to have changed now with new drugs where pts see changes and shrinks don't have to resort to the pseudosciences like Freudianism and go on a hope and a prayer.

In his case, I think it may have just been a common addiction, money and girls probably played a role. It happens, wish I were that rich.
