Two Doctors Under Investigation... Again

By: Joe Gagnon Email
By: Joe Gagnon Email

This is not the first time Dr. Sam Jahani or Dr. Eric Anthony Peper have been under the spotlight of the federal government.
Dating back to 1989, Dr. Jahani was under investigation from the Department of Justice while he was the medical director of Integrated Health Services in Dallas, TX.
He was accused of submitting false claims to Medicare for unnecessary services.
The case was settled, he gave the federal government $19 million and Dr. Jahani's company didn't have to admit any wrong doing.
Dr. Peper has had his run in with the Department of Regulatory Agencies.
His medical license as a surgeon was revoked six years ago when he worked at Saint Mary's hospital.
In 2005, he was refused medical malpractice insurance as well.

      You are right! Sam Jahani is a fine and caring doctor. All this is just a witch hunt by idiots. Just like sheep. They all follow the leader. Small minds! Maybe the DEA should investigate those who are pointing their finger at him. And those who waited in his office to see him and have now put blame on him due to the sick gossip they have heard. SHAME on you all for trying to be judges without knowing the truth.

    I have been a patient of Dr.Sam Jahani for over 5 years know, he is a wonderful person and an excellent Dr. He has never overmedicated me, he monitors you carefully .He also tells you of the dangers of certain ones.He dont just hand out pills to anybody like some of you are claiming. I was taken to the ER. a few years back my white blood count was extremely high and dangerous, Delta Memorial sent me home. He called me next morning and sent me back he met me there and admitted me. He also said they never should have sent me home like that. I feel he saved my life.I have bulging disks in my back operation to risky there is no guarantee I will get better if I did Fr. Jahani said its safer not to my chances are I could stay the same or get worse.

    The Lady that was interviewed on KKCO 11 News is blowing smoke through her nose and what she is saying is totally false she said that she took theses meds on her own accord and she said she was getting addicted how can you just stop say I feel fine now this makes it look bad for being a witness for the government.I had Kidney failure almost and Dr.Jahani took quick action and prescribed the correct dosage and explain that these were they were to be taken 7 days only and they worked fast and I Know for a Fact that these also they did the job.Dr Jahani takes that Oath To No Harm very seriously and I know that these allegations is being done By Her is that Dr Jahani Caught on what she was doing and Halted her and when Dr. Jahani told her to stop she went to Dr Pepper for More and when she told Investigators what she was prescribed she probably didnt tell them that Dr Jahani had halted her addiction so she went to another doctor fabricating her pain for more pain medicines

    Some of these remarks are what you would expect from the Hickabillies around here. Dr. J. is a kind compassionate care giver. I had seen another physician in the Delta area who recommended digging a grave and shooting me would be the appropriate treatment for my ongoing pain. Dr. J. took the time to have me properly diagnosed and the surgery I needed done. There will always be drug seekers out there, but proper pain control is also needed. How does one have the time to investigate every person who shows up to to determine what category they fall into. Dr. J's office was always busy, his patients a varied group, always at least one who you figured couldn't even spell "dog" on a good day. Other Doctors probably wouldn't even see them. The only fault of Dr. J's was hiring the bookeeper who probably couldn't count to 12 without taking her shoes off.

    Dr. Jahani is NOT the go to guy for pain meds. I dont know all the charges hes facing But as far as being a drug dealer he isnt. Ive been his patient for almost 3 yrs. now. I went in for a checkup and help for lower back pain due to 2 herniated disks in my back. before he started prescribing any pain meds I had to see a specialist, MRI etc. After it was determined that surgery couldnt guarentee any relief Dr. Jahani and I started working on the best solution to help my pain and to keep me working to feed my family.We tried a few different combos of meds until we found the best solution for me. These meds are addicting and I was fully informed of what could happen if abused. I have been using this combo for 2 years now and Dr jahani has never offered to up my script or use more powerful pain killers. He also has never refilled my script if I run out early. He made me sign a contract and drug testing to keep me from trying to use multiple Drs for pain meds as many addicts do.Thanks doc.

      Maybe you should learn to spell before you go to a doctor.

    it's very confusing,a couple years ago,i was having chest pain and montrose hospital couldn,t figure out what was wrong.A teacher recommended me to see Jahoni,the day of the visit he looked at me and immediately knew that it had to do with my asthma and medication that i was given. i feel he saved my life.

    I really hope Jahani isn't working at another nursing home doing the same thing he did in Texas! Also, the IRS, HLS, DEA, and other federal organizations would not be involved in this LONG ONGOING investigation based on 1-5 peoples victim status. DUH! Come on. They are wrong and are legal drug dealers. What makes them any different than the crack dealer on the corner? I happen to KNOW people, let me say again, PEOPLE, have died because of them. I think they should be responsible for those deaths just as someone selling bad crack would be. Just because he is a doctor doesn't put him about the law, or morals other people follow. They have a RESPONSIBILITY to themselves, the patient, and the community.
