Dr. Wes: On Closure

Nice post!

“Closure” is the time in medicine where we either revel in our success or squirm in our failure. It’s where we must face the music – good or bad – with our patients. More often than not, it’s the time for doctors that brings meaning to our efforts and the hours we work.

Wha….?

The 17-month investigation culminated with the arrest of Dr. Tyron Reece, a 71-year-old general practitioner who runs a solo practice in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood.

Reece wrote 920,000 prescriptions last year for hydrocodone, which is commonly sold under the brand names Vicodin and Lortab, authorities said. That averages to 35 prescriptions a day, typically for 100 pills each.
