On Friday, October 16, 2009, I was conducting a routine Internet search on Dr. Joseph L. Giacchino, Jr, MD., hoping to find the long-awaited news of a possible medical license suspension, when I found a site called Empower Public Relations. I was astounded to find that a seemingly credible public relations firm could be oblivious to all of the blatant facts surrounding Dr. Giacchino that exist (I have made a copy of the page here in case Empower Public Relations pulls the original).
Let me be clear, I said facts – not gossip! Simple Internet searches would reveal the following truths:
1) The woman that Dr. Giacchino shares his life with as his wife and employs thru his clinic is a convicted drug dealer (Maria Gil).
2) Federal law enforcement agencies are presently investigating Dr. Giacchino’s medical practice.
3) Dr. Giacchino once lost his medical license relating to a 1980s felony drug indictment.
Furthermore, while I have no physical evidence to support an allegation that Dr. Giacchino was forced to resign from Loyola Hospital in Maywood, Illinois in the early 1980s, I contend Loyola Hospital discovered that Giacchino was conspiring to sell human organs for the Chicago Outfit to desperate patients willing to pay large bribes. In fact, I dare Loyola Hospital to sue me for libel, if only to prove this allegation is false. And I would be willing to bet anyone any amount of money (via the State of Nevada, where gambling is legal) that Loyola Hospital will not seek a legitimate claim of libel against me on the aforementioned matter.
I will finish by suggesting that the public relations Internet site called Empower Public Relations, not be taken seriously while they promote Dr. Giacchino as a reputable doctor. In addition, the American Association of Pain Medicine, Chicago Medical Society, Illinois State Medical Society and Westlake Hospital (of Melrose Park Illinois – shockingly, Giacchino is on staff there) are hereby advised of the same. We as a community should not stand for the whitewashing of dangerous doctors.
