    A Michigan doctor who misdiagnosed patients with cancer and then bombarded them with unnecessary treatments will have to face his victims — who lost their health, savings and trust — at an emotional sentencing hearing that opened Monday.

    Disabled auto worker Robert Sobieray is among those who plan to be in the Detroit courtroom when Dr. Farid Fata learns his fate for using patients as cash cows, telling some of them they were deathly ill with diseases they didn't actually have.

    In 2010, Fata diagnosed Sobieray with a rare blood cancer and subjected him to monthly infusions of chemotherapy and three weeks of radiation — expensive treatments that he said made his teeth fall out and his body twitch uncontrollably.

    Maybe when he gets out, he can go into business with Mr. Ostrosky and open Great Lakes Animoe League no kill shelter.

    They'll have access to an experienced spokesperson. They can reminisce about scamming patients and the system.

    After a year, they can announce an additional wing called "Yoda's Furry Friends" (because hopefully that fucking thing will be dead by then) and Beth can shill for a another 5 years on a new vanity project.

    It's a win, win situation.

    How can you live with yourself? Ruining so many peoples lives for money? I hope he still thinks it was worth it. Deserves the death he misdiagnosed the others with

    My goddamn doctor did kind of the same thing.

    Except it resulted in a huge penis.

    Some call it a blessing, to others a curse.

    It seems unethical to me, but I am old-fashioned.

    As bad/nearly as bad: Robert Courtney was a Kansas City pharmacist who diluted chemotherapy drugs to increase profits. Between 1990 and 2001 he diluted nearly 100,000 prescriptions. When they arrested him he had almost $20 million in assets. He pled and got 30 years.

    This guy definitely should be given the death penalty. Hasn't what he did worse than killing someone in cold blood. Other countries execute drug dealers. Just once set an example and put someone like this death and it will probably never happen again.
