 David Green and Greg:

I understand there are efforts in the works to hold Hitzig accountable 
for far more than making up insurance codes--things like very ill 
people who are the result of his cavalier prescribing of phen/fen in 
very large dosages with next to no medical care of the people for 
whom he prescribed.  While I almost came under his treatment, a 
family member did.  Fortunately, she was smart enough to quit while 
she was ahead.  Greg, stay as clear of him as you can.  There are 
plenty of doctors who work with the p/f program and who do it with all 
the appropriate care we should expect from a physician.
