Jackson Doctors at War

11/9/2009 3:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's two warring doctors are going at it again ... Dr. Steven Hoefflin just accused Dr. Arnold Klein of being a lawbreaker for the things he said last week on TMZ Live.



Hoefflin -- who performed numerous procedures on Jackson -- says he believes Klein may have violated federal controlled substance and trafficking laws, since "...he knew Michael was a narcotic addict yet he repeatedly injected him, probably with others in his office assisting him, 51 times over three months with a minimum of 100mg of Demerol and charged him a large amount of money."

Hoefflin added, "Other Dermatologists use topical and nerve block anesthesia and not repeated Demerol shots."

Hoefflin also accused Dr. Klein of violating the Federal HIPPA laws "by disclosing health care information on Michael Jackson without permission."

Klein and Hoefflin are suing each other.

Heck yeah, that's a violation of HIPAA! I was really surprised that he was disclosing all of Michael's medical history ... what was he thinking? I've come to the conclusion that any Dr. related to MJ needs to go to jail...none of them are "right".

It's about time that someone in the medical feild is calling Klein out for talking about his deceased patient without permission period. Klein is forgetting that MJ had a family regardless of their family issues. I like that this Hoeffin guy is calling out Klein BS.

Gotta go with Klein about this one.

HOEFFLIN is the one who f'ed up MJ's face, overcharged him, did the scalp surgeries and managed that post op pain. HIS HANDS ARE DIRTY.

Joe Jackson is illiterate    

Hoefflin, Klein and Murray ought to be arrested with Murray going in for LIFE! Hoefflin disfigured MJ and more than likely did all his procedures while MJ was under with something! Well, Klein we know all his story, and Murray definitely deseres LIFE in the big house as MJ died while in his care because of negligence. NO CONSPIRACY! MJ's family know nothing because Michael kept them in the dark about all his business. He probably spoke with them on average 1 hour a year!
