My thanks to the Bucks County DA’s Office and Quakertown police for helping us investigate this case and hold this doctor accountable.

We have stayed laser focused on taking down doctors found running illegal pill mills.

By 2019, we’d doubled our arrests compared to 2016 and seen the overall number of opioids prescribed decrease by 15% per year.

Fewer doctors writing illegal prescriptions = less supply on the streets = progress.
