Burzynski Clinic Sued by Patient for Fraud, Neglience and Whatnot

So, at last, something seems to be happening that is somewhat along the lines I called for in my last post on the ugly operations of the Burzynski Clinic. It is now reported that a patient that has been victimised financially as well as medically by the Burzynski confidence scam is suing for "punitive damages for negligence, negligent misrepresentation, fraud, deceptive trade and conspiracy". Hopefully she will win the case and hopefully this will put the Burzynski operation out of business.

However, this operation is in fact a business model for the callous and greedy in the world of private health care business. So, even if the suit would manage to put the Burzynski Clinic down, the phenomenon remains possible as long as the FDA accepts and permits clinical trials on the conditions exemplified by the Burzynski scam. The case for FDA to change its policy therefore stands unmoved.

My best of luck to the claimant, Ms. Quinlan!
