A criminal complaint was unsealed May 21 in federal court in the Eastern District of New York charging Dr Michael Randall, of Centerreach, Long Island, NY with illegal distribution of thousands of prescription pain pills, including oxycodone, oxymorphone, methadone, and carisoprodol. Randall surrendered earlier today, and his initial appearance is scheduled for this afternoon before United States Magistrate Judge A. Kathleen Tomlinson at the United States Courthouse, 100 Federal Plaza, Central Islip, New York.
The charges were announced by Loretta E. Lynch, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, James J. Hunt, Acting Special Agent in Charge, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), New York, and Tom F. O’Donnell, Special Agent in Charge, U.S. Department of Human Services, Office of Inspector General, New York Region (HHS-OIG).
Here’s the interesting part:
“By prescribing thousands of highly addictive pain pills without a legitimate medical purpose, Dr. Randall ignored the law and his own patients’ well-being,” stated United States Attorney Lynch. “We are committed to vigorous prosecution of doctors who abdicate their Hippocratic Oath, participate in the illegal distribution of prescription drugs, and contribute to the rise of drug abuse and addiction in our communities.” Lynch expressed her grateful appreciation to each of the agencies that participated in the government’s investigation.
Maybe the feds and other agencies who could focus on keeping doctors, pharmacists, etc adhering to “first do no harm” and to not give “a pessary for abortion”, we would have less shady type “doctors” gumming up the system and wrecking countless lives, as well as bilking the various insurance programs which pay for a good amount of this illegal activity with office fees, lab fees and prescription drug programs.
