Praise for the Doctor

It appears that your articles regarding the ongoing investigation into any possible irregularities at Dr. Allen Thomashefsky’s practice are premature to say the least.

I have been a patient of the doctor’s for some six years or so, and not only is he a brilliant doctor but he has a depth of understanding of how the body will heal itself if given the right circumstances. He does not prescribe drugs or surgery as would be generally prescribed by more traditional practitioners.

Dr. Thomashefsky has a blemish-free career, over 40 years, so your lynching of his reputation is totally misplaced.

If the ongoing investigation had found him guilty, you would be entitled to erect the gallows, but the press has hung, drawn, and quartered him prior to any evidence being heard. You have slaughtered the reputation of a meticulous professional without any due diligence. Shame on you.

I will be forever hopeful this will come to haunt you.
