The Doctor Who Scored Methadone for Anna Nicole

2/14/2007 7:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Sandeep Kapoor was by Anna Nicole's side when she participated in West Hollywood's Gay Pride Parade back in 2005. He also prescribed methadone when Smith was eight months pregnant.

TMZ obtained documents which show that on August 25, 2006, just 13 days before Smith gave birth, Dr. Kapoor wrote a prescription for methadone. The prescription, RX#2846735, was written for Michelle Chase. TMZ has learned that Michelle Chase was an alias Anna Nicole used. Under California law, it's illegal to prescribe a controlled substance to a false name.

That same day, Key Pharmacy in the San Fernando Valley filled the prescription and sent it to "Vicky Marshall" (sic) in the Bahamas. Vickie Marshall is Anna Nicole's legal name.

TMZ contacted Dr. Kapoor, a 1996 graduate of Boston University School of Medicine, who said, "No comment."

TMZ also contacted Key Pharmacy. The owner said patient privacy laws prevent him from commenting.

The Police in the BAHAMAS should put the baby under protective custody IMMEDIATELY!!

She should also undergo a complete medical check-up ASAP!!!

Yikes! Is all this over-reporting on Anna Nicole EVER going to stop?? Let her rest in peace. She lived in a world I ,for one, sure can't begin to understand. It appears she took legal/semi-legal drugs...does that make her life and death any more acceptable?? I hope her life story will make some of celebrity drug users think about what could happen to them.

checked the address in LA for Nicole Smith and got this from "many" websites: Anna Nicole Smith 200 Ashdale Ave LA CA 90049

seems the address to the patient is incorrect from the pharmacy, but almost exactly alike.. btw, there is no 2800 N. Ashdale in 90048 that I could find..

seems the name and address to the patient were both frauds.

They just need to do the frickin DNA test find out who the baby belongs to. Pray to God it does not belong to Howard, then drop the Marshall vs Marshall case and I bet alot of this crap would go away. Where there is no money, there will be no bottom feeders. Oh and for God sakes Insider and Entertainment tonight, stop following "mourning Howard " around. Oscar season is almost over!!!

It doesn't say much in this day in time, and all that we know about Drug and Alcholoc Abuse, that someone in her inner cirlce, that was not using her either because of her fame or her money, needed to step in and put this girl into some type of REHAB PROGRAM, even if it was just to let her have some rest, peace and time to mediate and refocus her life...After the death of Daniel, people definetly should have sent her to a Counseling, Retreat and/or REHAB to deal with her pain, sorrow and drug addiction...I cannot stand Howard Stern, his family, their so called friends, their business associates, and the TRIMSPA Heads, there is no way that they could not have known that this gril was on her last leg, everytime in the last year that you see her in Public, she is having to be held onto by someone or a body guard and she slur's her words, her eyes are sensitive to light...I know nothing about Drug Abuse at all, and I am smart enough to realize this girl was headed for serious problems and issues...Somebody should be held responsible and even the Hospital in the Bahama's should have told her that they only releasing her to a Retreat or Rehab Facility to have some time for peace and quite and some alone time to deal with her grife in loosing Danile...I cannot believe that ET! is so into getting there story and that everytime they have interviewed her and Howard both their both "STONED" out of their minds and incoherent...They bady should have been tested for Drug Related Issues after her birth...I feel that all the jursidictions, California, Flordia, the Bahamas and even the Federal Govt. of the US, could all get together, even their Judges on a Conference Call and expedit the Partunity Suit...You can bet money if Howad K.Stern thought for one second that he was Dannielynn nature birth father, even if he had one once of a chance of being her fahter, he would have already had the test taking...He knows that 100% that he is not the nature father of that baby...He is beyond infactuated with Anna Nicole Smith, to the point of a SICK, SICK attraction! Is own sister admitted to Mark Stein from ET! that he hasn't recieved a penny from Anna Nicole Smith since 1999, and that he hasn't had a job other than taking care of her, except that his parents pay for everything...Hard to believe that to be true, bet his name is on ever one of her business dealings, checking accounts and he controls what ever monies she has recieved and he has taking his share of the commissions on handling her business transactions in Showbiz...He is a total "whimp", "snake" and "cripy"...All Courts and Judicial System heads and Judges need to get together and pick one date and location for all the Men wether it be 1 0r 100 that possibly could be the Dad of Dannielynn, that this is the only Date that you will have a chance to have a claim on this child, and test all of them, then get it out of the Media, let this little girl get on with growing and up and bonding with someone that is decent and that will love her for her and not what she will be recieving...I think that they ought to put the monie that she will inherit into a trust that their will be a Board of Trustees in charge of...Playboy and Hugh Hefner, or known for being decent, caring and loving people and he is known to take care of girls that have wavered and wanted help, he will send them to REHAB or whatever they need on his dollar...Him, his daughter Chrisite or people on the board of Playboys Corporation, some of them should have been or should be appointed some of the Trustee Board, I realize Hugh is older, but his Daughter, or even Sons could be some of the people on the Board of being incharge of Dannielynn's Estate and given out money is needed to raise Dannielynn...The Playboy Organizaiton has plenty of money they wouldn't be after her inheritance and they would be decent enough people to make sure that she is took care of in a proper manner...It is sicking that a man that is so far gone on Methodone or whatever Drugs he is strung out on is able to be in charge of that Child...The Child Welfare System should step in and take that child into Custody, and he needs to go to a Rehab Facility himself and get hisself straightened out...At least Larry Birkhead and say he is trying his best to do what is right, I don't think it is about the money for him...It is going to be years before that little girl will see any of that money if ever, their will be appeal after appeal after appeal especially with Howard K. Stern and his buddy Ron being in charge of her affairs...The doctor that described this medication should be in trouble, but he won't be! All the information is just hear say and this will not be allowed as evidience in a court of law, he will just be asked 1000 questions and he'll be embarrased that he was brought into this, but he won't be in trouble as far as the law goes!

Don't be surprised by the doctor's actions. They are just as money hungry as the next person. My husband (research chemist) once developed a medical device which would cure infection in people having to use indwelling catheters. He tried marketing it to a well known urologist in Los Angeles. The doctor did not want to consider using it and said to my husband (exact quote!) "what's wrong with infection?". They are not always interested in curing patients. As long as patients are under their care or need their assistance for either medication or treatment the doctors stand to make a lot of money. Once you are cured or no longer need their services their income is affected by that. Don't elevate doctors to sainthood...they are not!! Some doctors are idealistic and really want to help...but many do not. Remember Elvis' doctor...he was on a retainer all those years as long as he kept prescribing the drugs!

If this is true, Dr. Kapoor should lose his medical license and serve time in jail.

I want to when TMZ is gonna fess up and admit that these are documents that have been STOLEN from Anna's home. I would also like for everyone of you IDIOTS to know that if she had been taking these drugs while pregnant DannieLynn would probably be still in the hospital while they ween her off of the methdone, she would have been in essence like a crack baby! Idiots!!!

And you don't give up yourself either, do you?

God the irony of some of these idiots...

"""Quit posting about something you know nothing about, and get a life""" while they sit and post about someone they knew nothing about, without much a life themselves. At least what I say is relevant to the topic and not spending all my time blasting other people who have a grain of sense.

Oh damn, now I've stooped.

I once went to Dr. Kapoor and found out he was terrible. He advised me to stop taking a prescription that was doing me good since I was already taking a low dose. I took his advise and got sick as a result. I never went back to him after that. I hope they take away his license.

I forgot to mention, let's follow the crazy people rule that seems to say you can't say anything bad about dead people.

Let's idolize Hitler!! He's dead, who cares what kind of life he led or who he hurt, he's dead! *passes the pedastol*

(Don't blame the media now, when they are the ones who put her in your sights in the first place. Bet you wouldn't be so nice to the crack addicted mother down the street.)

Dear Dr. Kapoor,

You would have to be an idiot to not know that Anna Nicole Smith was 8 months pregnant when you sold her those drugs. You know the laws about filling medical prescriptions to someone falsifying their ID information. Now dear sir, you are about to lose your license and probably not a day too soon. Congratulations. You contributed to the death of Anna Nicole Smith and maybe even her son by your careless and thoughtless illegal actions.
