Anna's Doc Scrutinized by CA Med Board

2/15/2007 9:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Sandeep Kapoor is the subject of an inquiry by the Medical Board of California, which wants to know more about physician misconduct allegations in the treatment of the late Anna Nicole Smith.

Spokesperson Candis Cohen says that the board is looking into "possible misconduct" by Dr. Kapoor, after TMZ reported his prescribing of methadone to an alias used by Anna Nicole. Cohen added that the board was looking into the legality of prescribing drugs to someone who is using an alias.

MD's writing prescriptions to their patients under an alias name is not
new. Rush Limbaugh was caught with prescription medication that
he alleges was his -- but was in another name.

Wonder why they never investigated Limbaugh's MD?????????????

Someone should get the word out to Birkhead and his lawyers that Drs. Perper and Cyril Wecht are buddies -- they go way back together and they're both willing to say whatever you want for $$$$$. Wecht has a criminal record in Pennsyvania -- investigate it and bust them, TMZ!! We'll never know the truth about what the DNA says or even the truth about the autopsies of both Daniel and ANS. I am suspicious that good old Judge Larry is friends with them, too..... too convenient that they all know one another and ANS happened to die in Perper's jurisdiction. You can bet HKS knew that.

# 79.. Thank you for your post..I too am on methadone, but I am a heroin addict, I have been on methadone for a long time, and I know for a fact that methadone is given to pregnant women because it is one of the safest medications there is..Many of my friends were on methadone maintenace while pregnant and in ALL CASES the babies were born healthy and now have children of their own..I just wish that the evil posts made by some of the people here would be deleted. ANS was no different than any of us, she was a human being who deserves to R.I.P. To continue what I was saying about methadone and pregnancy, and this is just from my own experience..If I was addicted to vicodin and found out I was pregnant, any doctor would put me on methadone ASAP, it is proven safe..If a pregnant woman is forced to quit any opiates cold turkey, she would probably have a miscarriage..I would say that 99.9% of you know NOTHING about methadone, so quit with the false and evil comments, and BTW that famous picture of the methadone bottle in the fridge, in the first place that looked like a beat up old fridge that is used in cheap pay by the hour motels, and the bottle you all saw, that is the bottle that I get dosed with, and it has over 10000 mg in it..Thewse bottles are taken to clinics by a bonded driver.It would be almost impossible for one doctor to get his/her hands on that bottle...Do you get it now?? The picture was a fake..If ANS doctor prescribed her methadone, she would have gotten it in pill form, and if anf I sad if her doctor prescribed her liquid, it certainly wouldnt be in a bottle like that..Are all of your lives so empty that you have to bash a woman who can't even defend herself??

You people need to do your homework! Methadone is much safer for the baby than the painpills and nerve pills anna had been taking for years.Drs. prescribe methadone to pregnant drug addicts all the time. It will not harm the baby or cause long term health problems to the baby. Its not the Drs fault Anna or Daniel abused the medicine.He prescribed the methadone to protect the babys health. The baby is fine isnt she. No tabloids have reported that the baby has been sick or anything have they?? NOOOOO!!!!

In the know...    

What is the connection between Dr. Kapoor and
http://www.bayviewresearch.com/

This web site indicates he is the primary investigator. What is he investigating? Methodone overdoses?

Very Strange indeed. Is this part of the CA medical investigation?
