AP News: Patients try to keep appointments with jailed doc

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) – Patients of a northern Kentucky psychiatrist jailed on a charge he stabbed a woman with a sword have tried to keep appointments with him in jail. Kenton County jail Chief Deputy Scott Colvin said deputies have had to turn away several patients of Douglas Rank, charged last month with first-degree assault in an attack on 32-year-old woman.

Colvin told the Kentucky Enquirer that some patients have asked if they could drop off Rank's prescription pad at the jail so he could write their prescriptions.

Wow.  That’s some crazy doc loyalty.

Oh,  Psychiatrist.  So, not “crazy”, just, umm, overboard.

  1. I guess he – um- Ranks number 1 with them, hahaha. Sorry, I just couldn’t help myself :)

  2. I guess some people are drawn to an incisive psychiatrist!

    In my area it takes months to get into a psychiatrist, and if one left suddenly hundreds of patients would be scraping for prescriptions just like these folks. This may be more a reflection of a local shortage than anything else.
