DELTA, Colo. (KKCO) - While we wait to hear from federal authorities why two local doctors are under the microscope of the Drug Enforcement Agency, some patients are coming forward to say one of them saved their lives.
On Thursday afternoon, Alice Johnston plays with her children.
She says she inherited a bone condition from her father making it hard for her to walk or do anything.
Until she went to Doctor Jahani's office, "When I found doctor jahani," she says, "I was at the end of my rope."
She says he cut down the amount of prescriptions she was taking, limiting her to just a couple.
Another patient, Tana Criss says the same thing that he in fact cut down on the amount of prescriptions she was taking, "He got me off a lot of drugs i was on," she says.
She takes the painkiller Vicodin each day for her back, and says Doctor Jahani carefully monitors how many pills she takes.
While the offices of the two doctors are searched by federal officials both Johnston and Criss say their lives are better for having Doctor Jahani in their lives.
Both of these patients tell us they are not addicted to any of the medications prescribed to them.

    Its true! Dr. Jahani is a great doctor who has saved my life on multiple occasions. The media is overdoing this story. I'm praying for you Dr. Jahani! We all know you're innocent!

    I really wish the news piece on this was as detailed as the one from the woman accusing the Doctors of her addiction to pain killers. I am interested in both sides of the story and want to know what it is that the Docotrs have done, and how big of a impact it has had on all of them, as well as let us know their future intentions.
