Pill-Mill Doctor’s Lawyer Blames Clinic Owner

Dr. Cynthia Cadet, accused of causing the overdose deaths of nine patients treated at Chris George’s so-called pain clinics, has been portrayed by her attorney as a victim in the $40 million pill-mill scheme, the Palm Beach Post reports. Her attorney claims Cadet often refused to write prescriptions for out-of-state patients, while George testified the doctor often wrote more prescriptions than other physicians that worked at the clinics. 

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
