ATTENTION PUBLIC: Melrose Park Clinic – In Melrose Park, Illinois – No Longer Holds A Valid License To Do Business As A Medical Corporation In The State Of Illinois!
The following is a public service announcement:
WARNING – please be advised former patients of Melrose Park Clinic that any scheduled doctors appointments you have are officially canceled. The Melrose Park Clinic’s license has been suspended in conjunction with the recent suspension of its operator, Joseph L. Giacchino’s Illinois State medical license. Read about suspension of the clinic’s license here (this is a screen capture from the State of Illinois Division of Professional Regulation website).
Those of you that are in need of a new doctor’s office because of Mr. Joseph L. Giacchino’s self-destruction as a physician, please contact Loyola Hospital’s physician referral center at (708) 216-9000. In my opinion, Loyola Hospital contributed to creating the monster in Mr. Giacchino in the early 1980s when they decided to not report a serious crime committed by Giacchino to the proper authorities. I believe Giacchino’s crime was not reported because of the effect it would have on Loyola’s bottom line. Therefore, I feel Loyola Hospital deserves the experience of dealing with the recent medical concerns of Giacchino’s now former patients.
Approximately one-year ago Dr. Demorest resigned without notice from Mr. Giacchino’s clinics, most likely due to moral outrage over the dangerous patient abuses of his boss. In light of recent matters, it is obvious that Dr. Demorest made a very wise decision.
I would like to thank the authorities for finally stepping in and dealing with this situation. Hopefully this is just the first round in a slew of attacks against clinics that sell their patients pain medication.
