MAD DOG MILLIONAIRE a.k.a. Punyamurtula Kishore MD, is a QUACK.
MAD DOG MILLIONAIRE aka PUNYAMURTULA KISHORE MD TRIAL DATE Nov. 11, 2014
Punyamurtula Kishore, M.D. and three other defendants will go on trial in November, 2014
MAD DOG MILLIONAIRE a.k.a. Punyamurtula Kishore MD, Patients Die of Improper Care Protocols!!!!
Many of Dr. Punyamurtula Kishore's patients have died because of improper treatment and care methods. This Quack doctor ("Hitler"of Medical Geoncide) should not be allowed to practice medicine anywhere. Preventive Medicine Associates, formerly Addiction medicine Associates was a Death Camp (The Holocaust for Drug Addicts and Alcoholics, "Auschwitz" in Brookline, MA) I worked at his Brookline office and witness the death of many patients. Dr. Kishore should be arrested, arraigned and prosecuted for 1st. degree murder or manslaughter.
Dr. Punyamurtula Kishore was reprimanded, fined $2,500 and required to perform 50 hours of Board-approved community service and to complete additional continuing professional development credits. He was found to have inappropriately filed four Temporary Involuntary Hospitalization Applications for the purpose of drug treatment and drug testing. Dr. Kishore is a 1975 graduate of Andhra Medical College in India. He specializes in Addiction Medicine and has NOT been licensed in Massachusetts TO PRACTICE Addiction medicine !!!!!!!!!!!!!
MAD DOG aka PUNYAMURTULA KISHORE MD 2020 TRIAL DATE November 11, 2014
Punyamurtula Kishore, M.D. and three other defendants will go on trial in April 8. 2014 for allegedly bilking MassHealth of almost $20 million, in what Coakley’s office calls an “intricate scheme” involving drug testing, sober homes, and his Preventive Medicine Associates (PMA).
According to Coakley, Kishore used various bribes or kickbacks to persuade sober house owners to require residents to submit urine tests at least three times per week. The tests were performed by PMA’s office laboratories, then billed to MassHealth, which pays $100 to $200 for such screens. Also charged in the case were Carl Smith, manager of New Horizon House, John Coughlin, president of Gianna’s House, and Thomas Leonard, part owner and manager of Marshall House—all for receiving kickbacks.
MAD DOG a.k.a Punymurtula Kidhore MD and Lil Dog a.k.a. Carl Smith L.M.H.C. are responsible for the death of Eleanor Clark of Weston , Massachusetts.
Just look at what happen to James Clark .
James Clark was a client at the same address where the Director/Manager Carl Smith resided at ,50 Draper Street in Dorchester MA. Carl Smith is suppose to be a state licensed Mental Health Clinician , If so , than why did he discharge James Clark ? James clark never tested postive for a toxicology screen for illegal or prescription drugs, than why was he discharged ?
He was discharged for behavioral and attitude problems that were related to his psychiatric and substance abuse diagnosis. Carl Smith L.M.H.C. should have been able to detect that this man had psychological problems and referred him for treatment to MAD DOG aka Punyamurtula K...ishore's Neurological Clinic for treatment and to help James Clark get back on his psychiatric medication. Instead , Carl Smith discharged him and the following day , James Clark murdered his 81 year old grandmother Eleanor Clark in Weston Massachusetts .
Punyamurtula Kishore MD aka MAD DOG Millionaire referred James Clark to Carl Smith's Program New Horizon House after James Clark was Discharged from St. Elizabeths Hospital's S.E.C.A.P.'s Detoxification unit. Punyamurtula Kishore aka MAD DOG had a Contract with Carl Smith to provide New Horizon clients with Medical and Mental health Treatment. No treatment was provided except for toxicology screens . Carl Smith collected James Clark's program fee and MAD DOG Kishore billed his insurance company . Carl Smith and Dr. Kishore donot care about thier clients or patients . The only thing they cared about was making money at the expense of human misery

The Brookline Community Mental Health Center is an amazing community organization that provides invaluable services to the Brookline and Greater Boston Communities. A true gem, the Center is a place adults, children and youth can call their home in times of need. Having been on the Board for 4 years, I am proud to be associated with the Center and to support all of the wonderful programs the Center provides. Without the Center, so many individuals would be without quality mental health services, violence protection and educational services ... all of which are greatly needed.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Being involved with the Organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make more people aware of all the wonderful programs offered.

I joined the Board about 4 years ago, previously having hardly been aware of the existence of the Brookline Community Mental Health Center. It didn't take long to realize the wonderful compassion and dedication of the Board's staff, and to appreciate the Center's role at the heart of Brookline. Its services to families, individual adults, and children, as well as its involvement with the public schools and collaboration with other town agencies, all contribute mightily to the vibrancy of this community. And the Center provides its services to all who come through its doors with dignity and efficiency. The generous support it has won from so many Brookline residents and businesses testifies to its success.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

discussing the work of the Center with its clinicians, and learning about the experiences of its clients. I've also seen the dedication of the staff and the Board's leaders in many meetings and events.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to grow its ability to attract significant support from Brookline residents and major Boston-area businesses in order to nourish the Center's ability to serve its clients, to innovate, and to inspire similar efforts in other communities.

The Brookline Mental Heath Center is truly a neighborhood resourse. The reimbursement for mental Heath services is quite poor, yet due to some very little public funding and some very excellent fundraising, they continue to provide FIRST rate mental health services.

Many years ago, a good friend was killed in a very horrific and widely publicized accident. She had 2 young children. The counselors at the BMHC helped those kids grieve and get on with their lives...and without the stigma generally associated with receiving mental health services.

The Brookline Mental Health center is truly a neighborhood gem.

Yes..see above

The Brookline Community Mental Health Center is a community gem. Delivering the best possible care with attention to dignity, the Center supports families and children within the environments where they live and work. It is a privilege to be a part of this truly wonderful organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the results of great care delivered in our schools and throughout the community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help to get the word out even more, so that others can step up to help and support. Once members of the community hear of the work that the Center is doing, they immediately want to become involved and support the Center is whatever way they can.

The Brookline Community Mental Health Center has a has a wonderful staff dedicated to helping Brookline residents facing a wide range of problems. They help young, old and in between without regard for ability to pay.

I have heard first hand stories by clients who were grateful for the services that allowed them to overcome or cope with their problems.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Their model of treatment by multi-disciplinary teams should be replicated in other communities.

The Brookline Community Mental Health Center is a hidden jewel within the greater Boston community. For over 50 years the Center has provided mental health services and social support to countless of children and their families, adults and the elderly. Their services range from direct patient mental health services, to homeless prevention, to mediation, to providing transitional housing for independent teens. The Center does all of this with professionalism and, above all, care for their clients.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Witnessing young adults who have gone through the Center's BRYT program speak eloquently in public about how the Center made it possible for them to return to an active life in high school following a long struggle with depression.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make everyone in the greater Boston area aware of what an incredible organization the Center is.
