Doctor Accused of Gross Negligence

The state health board has accused Dr. Clifford Bernstein of gross medical negligence. Bernstein is one of few doctors in the U.S. that uses the Waismann Method of rapid detoxification from heroin or prescription painkillers. One of Bernstein̢۪s patients, after being released, developed pancreatitis and other problems after going through opiate withdrawal under anesthesia at Garden Grove Hospital. He is being accused of failing to realize that when the woman was discharged from his controversial drug treatment program she was seriously ill.
