He is probably correct. I didn't attend medical school but I am the best doctor I can be.

You know, in thinking about this man, I have realized something. He is one of few people who truly loved Michael. We are talking about one of the founders of AMFAR, one of the first people to recognize certain AIDS symptoms, to treat AIDS patients. He cares for children, for people that the world has abandoned. The same with Michael. He loved him enough to father his children, to do all he could to make him happy. And I believe that just maybe it wasn't about money. Michael didn't want children that could possibly look like his father, the man whose face tormented him even when he was looking at a sibling, which is why he removed all signs of him from his own face. Michael trusted him with one of the biggest decisions of his life, an dhe never adopted them because he was listed on the certificate and these people promised not to take them away...and were probably the first to live up to their word. Rowe is suing now, but it seems she may be seeking to keep them from Joe, which Michael would certainly have wanted. If Arnold gave him the medicine, he is in for a great deal of punishment, but I hope that people take into consideration in this case that he may be the only person in the world who would have actually done so thinking he was helping rather than getting rich. Seeing a friend hurt, crying day after day unable to rest has to take a toll on anyone who loves them...truly loves them.

Geeez people, why is everyone being so harsh on this guy. He is a very credible Dr with a lot of high profile patients, and has been a friend of Michael's for a very long time. Why is the media attacking him like this?

This is what is on Kleins website - if he is guilty of something then what an immoral person he is.

“In the practice of medicine, it is not enough to do no harm. We must do good. Many areas of medicine have lost the integrity that was once the gold standard. It is our mission to practice medicine with honesty and integrity and to deliver to each patient the very best that we have to offer in a kind, honest and compassionate manner.”
-Arnold William Klein, MD

I WAS WATCHING TONITES SHOW AND HARVY LEVIN (I LOVE THE SHOW!) HAD SAID EXACTLY WHAT I SAID, WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD EVERYBODY COME OUT WITH A STORY ON HOW HE WAS ON THE PILL AND OTHER DRUGS AFTER MICHEAL HAS PASSED ON? IF DEEPAK AND THE NURSE,THE NANNY,THE MENTALIST AND MANY CLOSE TO HIM KNEW OF THIS, THEN WHY WOULD'NT ANYBODY DUE AND INTERVENTION, THEY ALL COULD'VE GOT TOGETHER, WITH OTHER CELEBRITIES AND HELD AN INTERVENTION. AND IF WAS ON SOME SERIOUS DRUGS LIKE THE ONES FOR ANETHESIA AND HE HAD THOSE TRACK MARKS ALL HIM. SOMEONE KNEW IF NOT ALL KNEW.EVEN IF YOU WORKED AS CLOSE AS YOU DI SOMEBODY KNEW SOME THING. SOMEONE SHOULD OF GOTTEN MICHAEL SOME HELP, HE HAD SO MANY CLOSE PERSONAL FRIENDS, SOMEBODY KNEW SOMETHING AND IN MY PERSONAL FEELING, A LITTLE BIT OF EVERBODY THAT KNEW HE HAD A PROBLEM,THEN EVERBODY SHOULD FEEL GUILTY ABOUT ABOUT HIS DEATH. I FEEL BAD UPSET AND PISSED OFF THAT THE WORLD'S IDOL IS GONE FROM.THESE PEOPLE THAT ARE COMING UP WITH THIS 'STORIE', WHAT IS YOUR MONENTARY MOTIVE. IF YOU HAD DID THIS A WHILE AGO MAYBE THE MAN WOULD STILL HERE DOING HIS COMEBACK CONCERT AND IF SOME DOCTOR GAVE HIM POWRFUL DRUGS USED IN A HOSPITAL SETTING THEN YES HIS DEATH SHOULD BE CONSIDERED MANSLAUGHTER AND EVERYONE INVOLVED SHOULD SUFFER AS HE DID HE COULD OF BEEN HELPED BY SOMEONE INFLUTIENTAL DR, THAT WOULD'VE KEPT IT REAL WITH MICHAEL AND GOTTEN HIS FAMILY INVOLVED.

I could hardly understand this dr (the post saying he had a pork chop in his mouth cracked me up). But, did I hear him right? Did he actually say the FDA was to blame for approving dangerous drugs and telling drs those drugs were required to be used? Come on. I've heard drs complain that the FDA was too slow or too conversative and would NOT approve drugs for use in the US that had already been approved overseas, or not do so quickly enough, but this is new. Quit whining and put on your big boy pants, Dr. Klein. No one at the FDA forces any dr to do anything dangerous to their patients, and if they approve drugs that can be dangerous, they do so based on the research and recommendations from drs. But they don't force drs to to hurt anyone!
Addiction is a disease and anyone in the medical profession who cannot be adult enough to treat responsibly needs to get out of the profession (do the right thing, treat the addiction without feeding it whether or not it's more profitable to just prescribe more drugs or if it's easier for the dr to prescribe meds simply to stop the patient's pleas for them). Accountability, drs, put on those big boy pants every morning and first, do no harm. A dr that prescribes or provides irresponsibly is simply a drug dealer/pusher. In fact, I'd argue they should be treated more harshly than a street dealer because we're supposed to be able to trust them with our very lives and the lives of our loved ones.
Miss you and love you, Michael. Wish more people had done right by you. (Why is it becoming more pervasive that people hurt each other? And, those that do so and self-righteously proclaim they haven't broken any law or pass blame make me most sick. Can't we all play nice in the sandbox?)
My warmest wishes to the entire Jackson family, MJ's children, extended family, friends, and fans. We've truly lost a very warm and special person on this earth. The loss of Michael is shared the world over because we've all felt joy and happiness and been moved simply by watching him dance and listening to him sing/perform. His generosity seemed limitless. He's certainly done a lot more for the world than anyone I know. Truly we've all been witness to GREATNESS.

barry Gordy is genius    

Arnold Klein is a pimp and Debbie Rowe is the ho. Together, they convinced Michael to pay for the kids. And now they're teaming up to sue for custody which they can later convert into cold hard cash. Pimpin' ain't easy, huh... Arnold Klein !?!

erm    

Hmm, on gut feelings I really don't like this person. Is this the person responsible for Michaels face? Michael should have stopped the face sculpturing a long time ago but I feel that the doctors who did this to his face are really the responsible ones. Why didnt anyone say no more...Very unethical.
The 'botox saved my marriage' sentiment is disgusting and says a lot about this person.
