People vs. Dr. Conrad Murray

Murray's Former Patients:

He's the Best Doc Ever

10/26/2011 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Murray's Former Patients Testify
Updated 10/26/11 at 9:00 AM
The defense is trying to make the case ... Dr. Conrad Murray is a great doctor with a pristine reputation -- and to prove their point, they're calling several of Murray's former patients to the stand ... each with glowing reviews.

First up ... a heart attack patient named Gerry Causey -- who told the jury, Murray saved his life. Causey said Murray is "the best doctor" he's ever had.

Interestingly, Causey told jurors he didn't want to be sedated during the operation because he was too scared ... so Murray didn't put him under.

He also said Murray took great care in explaining everything he was doing.

Prosecutors made sure to point out -- Murray's treatment was done in a monitored environment with the help of a large staff.

1025_Andrew_Guest_MJtrialPatient #2 Andrew Guest said Dr. Conrad Murray performed 2 different procedures on his heart in 2002 -- telling jurors, "That man sitting there is the best doctor I’ve ever seen."

Guest said Murray often called him on weekends to check up on him.

During cross-examination, lead prosecutor David Walgren asked Guest, "I don't mean to be flip ... but  he never give you Propofol in your bedroom did he?"

Guest shot back, "I am alive today because of that man."

Patient # 3 -- Lunette Sampson
Updated 10/26/11 at 9:35 AM

1025_Lunette_Sampson_MJtrialLunette Sampson -- who suffered 3 heart attacks in 2008 and 2009 -- told the jury Murray saved her life, fixing another doctor's botched operation.

During cross examination, Walgren suggested Murray was able to fix Sampson's heart because he had access to her medical records ... a privilege Murray never afforded the ER doctors, who scrambled to save Michael Jackson's life.

Patient # 4 -- Dennis Hix
Updated 10/26/11 at 9:50 AM

1025_Dennis_hicks_MJtrialDennis Hix testified Dr. Murray placed about 13 stints in his heart ...  for free.

Hix said Dr. Murray also operated on his brother's heart free of charge ... telling jurors, "I’m 66.  I've gone to a lot of doctors, A LOT of doctors, and I’ve never had one who gave me the care he did."

Patient # 5 -- Ruby Mosley
Updated 10/26/11 at 10:20 AM

1025_Ruby_Mosely_MJtrialRoby Mosley told jurors Dr. Murray couldn't have been greedy because he opened up a clinic in one of Houston's poorest neighborhoods in honor of his father.

Murray fought back tears as Mosley described how he selflessly treated patients who couldn't afford his care.

He didn't have much of a childhood. Work was his play.He sat in an corner looking, hoping to find someone asking him to join a game. Silently inside crying a hurtful pain it cut like a knife into his little boy heart.How much how much he loved to be a regular child.No childhood just a deep pain.A dancer a singer a master of sound.He stood on a windowsil his nose pressed agenst the windows glass looking at children enjoying his lost past.His Face so Beautiful a gods perfection he could not see. His pain just Blinding him not really guiding him.He never complaiedt he never cryed inside the pain of a lost past.He sang so beautiful like a Bird in the tree to please the crowd and make Nations happy.His Rich life it didnt fill him with happyness or joy.Cant buy up a lost Mans Joy.....a childhood that he sooo missed.what Beautiful heart a sweet man a golden soul.How much I wish I could give him his wish to relive a childhood happy and free..............
Oh boo hoo, his father made him sing and dance, something that would bring him everything he wanted even before he was an adult. It's not like he was forced to work in a coal mine, or even grow up on a farm even have a paper route. If he was the great man, humanitarian, and defender of children his fans claim he would have sucked it up, been thankful for what he had and moved on. Many kids, even in Gary Indiana went to sleep hungry at night, not knowing if they'll eat the next day or even have a roof over their head.

Pegasus - I think you should change your name to Ctrl-a Ctrl-v.

Murray was stupid and unqualified, no doubt. What kind of fool hired him, let him in the house, and treat them. Surely someone with a third grade education or better could have seen a problem with this.
