Sad. Yes, he might have been prescribing based off people's complaints about pain and how it affected them. But in the end people know, since pre-elementary school, that drugs can be bad and to be avoided as to not become a fried egg. Yet if needed, taken as prescribed and AS NEEDED. Talking over the recommended dose can cause serious respiratory problems. In plain English, if u needed it, your CNS shuts down and your brain stops communicating with the rest your body. Causing a cessation in breathing. People knew this before being referred to him by their PCP, who couldn't manage their pain through non-opiate or low opiate treatment. I will grant the sexual charges tho. Either they were desperate for drugs having reached his office, he somehow silenced on the floors from creaking, and the office with 15-20 people didn't hear or suspect anything through paper thin walls in a building smaller than my single wide. Lastly, yes he might have over prescribed... But better than under. Also it wouldn't be over prescribing if taken as needed. If it were taken as needed, you wouldn't have been at his office every 28 days. Or in that case taking the scripts to the pharmacy that day and insisting on waiting for whatever excuse gave the pharmacist. I'm not totally his side. Yes, if he didn't believe someone's story, he shouldn't have prescribed and people shouldn't lie. Was too trusting in what people told him, maybe. But, he did help most who came in pain get some relief.
I have been a patient of Dr. Sachs for four years and have nothing but positive things to say about him. He always treated me kindly and even took the time to ask how my son was doing and about the classes I was taking. He was very helpful and asked if my medications were still effecive and was happy to make changes if needed. Before I became a patient of his, I was bedridden, in constant pain and depressed. With his help, I soon felt well enough to work again and go back to school. I was able to do so many things that the pain had kept me from doing. In a way, he gave me back my life. I read one of the comments from someone whose family member overdosed and they blamed Dr.Sachs for it and said that he turned her into a drug addict. Well, there is no way she could have overdosed unless she took a huge amount of the medicine instead of as directed. She may have mixed the medication he prescribed with other meds she got from a friend or off the street. People like her is why people with legitimate pain have such a hard time getting the amount of meds they need because the medical community is so fearful of the misuse of these medicines. As long as people are responsible with their prescriptions and take them as directed there should never be overdoses. These people who are just looking to get high are ruining it for the rest of us patients in chronic pain. The family members of the ones who have overdosed have to stop blaming good doctors like Dr. Sachs and realize that their loved ones have an addiction problem.
