Fricky, you missed the point entirely! He wouldn't turn away public aid patients but may have preferred privately insured patients.... many doctors do/would. (BTW, why the all-caps letters? It's akin to screaming online....)

Rita, your post states that his staff asked you what KIND OF INSURANCE you had before making your appointment with the Dr.... that suggests that he wanted to know whether you had PRIVATE or PUBLIC insurance before his staff would make the appmt. So, when you daughter was ill, they took you in immediately and he showed up (if, indeed, he wasn't there initially) because (tah-dah!) you have PRIVATE insurance, which PAYS the Drs. far more than public insurance and is exactly why the other Drs. didn't want more publicly insured patients. So, ask yourself whether he have shown up and been so accommodating if you had PUBLIC insurance. Not a difficult concept to understand...

@Logansdad: Did you say this or quote it from somewhere else?:
"Never heard of people being against abortion, but pro death penalty."
If the former, then please, let me educate you. This is NOT the proper forum however. These, also, are two different things!

Grapefruit, are you SURE about Cunningham, based solely on this article? Or have you other sources (which might reveal your true identity/affiliation)? This article, as of 10:53pm CT, lists his tally as 16677, punctuation is missing-- if, indeed, what you report is correct, the Patch is either missing the proper comma or posted a typo!

"I was asked what insurance type I had before they would even let me schedule anything as they stated that Dr. Jain saw alot of Medicaid patients and the other docs could not possibly accommodate all of them."
I think you just answered your own question. Someone at the front desk told you that the other Drs. couldn't accommodate you... correct me if this is not correct, but you have private insurance, right? Of course Dr. Jain then accepted you! Please, don't be naive and think Drs. do not operate in a real-world, capitalist and profit-seeking economy. They most certainly do! If, indeed, you have private insurance, then your example has nothing to do with this case or his guilt or innocence - it's profit-motive inspired.

You ARE joking, right? DOGS are not controlled by humans when they decide they don't want to be controlled! "Ticking time bomb?" Potentially. To somehow compare your corporeal punishment as a human child and the unknown temperament of an adopted CANINE is foolish, and, at best and reveals a rather distorted viewpoint of humans vs. animals. You can not ascribe or compare characteristics of canines to humans or vice versa.

Read this, older data but from the CDC: http://www.cdc.gov/homeandrecreationalsafety/images/dogbreeds-a.pdf
Pits and rotts command the top of these mauling/morbidity lists year after year. I don't see chihauhaus and poodles! Size (in this case!) DOES matter! If you think your 90 lb dog (of ANY breed) is incapable of causing grave damage to flesh (human or another animal), I have a bridge to sell ya!

@gowhitesox: If you have an animal that you must supervise constantly, then it shouldnt be loose n the same house as very young children. IT doesn't matter what breed or type (could be a cat, as ferret or a gerbil, for that matter). The point is, human lives and health are more important than those of animals, though certainly we should never mistreat any animals. AS to your chihauhau bite, you'd sing a different song if that 10lb dog were 70 or 90 lbs, believe me! I've seen first hand what two unleashed pit bulls can do even a large, well-trained German shepherd because the owner thought he had a "right" to let them roam. Wish they had been to chihauhaus! Sorry if you don't get that point.

Jill, you are incorrect about the police. If you had pertinent information regarding the innocence of the Dr. or the falseness of the accusers, the police MUST give it equal consideration. They don't care who wins or loses as long as the judicial process is followed. To assume (which makes an A*S out of U and ME) that the police are taking sides in this matters truly reveals your innate bias.
There are plenty of qualified general practitioners and pediatricians around. No pediatrician I've encountered continued seeing patients after about age 21 (anbd many refer to a GP after the patient is age 18) or would EVER would conduct any version of gynecological exam on a female older than age 18. Perdiatricians, GPs and Ob/GYN specialists exist for a reason. Adults' bodies are not the same as childrens'.
