From Bobby Eisenberg December 8:
Here is my response to your article in today’s O’Shaughnessy’s.Speller disgraced Tod’s efforts and those of all the good doctors who have worked hard at creating the real medical cannabis practices in CA!Fred, why don’t you tell the whole story on Speller. The fact is that in 5 years in Cool after taking over Doc Fry’s practice, Speller failed to exam one single patient out of 15,000+ patients she collected $125 to $175 a piece. There were hundreds of patients she accepted checks from and failed to mail recommendations to and just as many that she sold “ID” cards to that we’re never received. In my opinion, she and her lawyer Tracy Green evaded at least four hearings by lying to the MB. No patients received their day in court. And after being placed on probation she continued to sell recommendations for three years to patients she never laid eyes on.You make it sound like her punishment was unjust.She should have had her licensed revoked. LOOK WHAT THEY DID TO TOD.
Love from Cool,
FG responds: I didn’t consider the disposition in Dr. Speller’s case unjust —based on all I’d heard from you over the years. But other readers thought I was taking Speller’s part, too. I wonder why? Maybe because I noted that she had been an SCC member and in this PR-centric world, one is never supposed to reveal info that reflects badly on one’s organization.
I haven’t been in touch with Dr. Speller since she stopped attending SCC meetings at the end of 2013. I sent her an email this morning to see what she had to say for herself, but it bounced back.
