Consumer Watchdog Campaign: CA Medical Board Says Record High Number of Doctors Disciplined for Substance Abuse Print E-mail

SANTA MONICA - A record high 46 doctors were disciplined for substance abuse last year according to a report prepared for a meeting of the California Medical Board today. Yet that record-breaking number represents just a fraction of the number of doctors likely to be abusing substances in California at any given time, said advocates with Consumer Watchdog Campaign.

"The California Medical Board only catches and disciplines a fraction of the drunk and drugged doctors practicing on patients today. Even when doctors are disciplined, patients remain in harm's way while enforcement actions take years to complete. This November, California voters have the chance to upend the status quo and save lives with Proposition 46, which would require random drug testing to catch substance-abusing doctors before patients are harmed," said Carmen Balber of Consumer Watchdog Campaign.

REEDLEY - The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspects and suspect vehicle in an armed robbery investigation that occurred this past Thursday afternoon. Shortly after 3:30pm, the seventeen year old victim was working in the front yard of his residence located in the 9000 block of S Lac Jac near the City of Reedley.  The victim’s eight year old brother was inside the house.

As he worked, a black colored, four door pick up pulled along the side of the house and stopped near him.  Two subjects got out of the vehicle and asked for water as their truck was overheating.  As the victim assisted them, a third subject came up from behind, pointed a gun at him, and demanded money.
