It is feared by some in the North Texas greater community that the state’s extreme pro-business attitude has and will continue to result with many agencies and bureaucrats to protect this and other perpetrators at the expense of public safety, especially those agencies run by doctors that have a long-standing tradition of professional courtesy, while subjecting Texas Tax Payer’s to potentially unnecessary risk. Some fear that these agencies will continuously enter into quid-pro-quo agreements that exchange cease-and-desist in return for endless forgive-and-forget. All of the people involved in the MEM enterprise are competent adults that should know better, especially having some training and experience in the medical field. Concerned citizens believe that such agreements are not a viable solution in this case where there is a repeated pattern of deception and fraud.
