never be allowed to stop! Don't you find this amazing?

Thank you for responding to my concerns about my medical management by Nurse Sara F. Carroll at the McClendon Center.
believe I have brought the following communication addressed to the
U.S. Social Security Administration to your attention previously, but in
case I didn't I want to advise you that there is documentary evidence
that raises substantial concerns about the reliability of diagnoses made
And by the way -- and this raises very serious concerns --
I have never met or was personally evaluated by an individual named
Aimee Calderone-Burgess. This individual could not have made a valid
diagnosis; I do not even know who she is. At this time I request that
McClendon investigate why my file contains a report of psychiatric
diagnoses made by an individual who never assessed me personally.

202 362 7064
David F. Black, Esq.
U.S. Social Security Administration
Dear Mr. Black:
will apprise the U.S. Social Security Administration of evidence
tending to show that my Social Security Disability claim (no. xxx xx xxxx) is fraudulent, a felony in violation of 42 USC 1011.
In late October 1991 Dennis M. Race, Esq. (202 887 4028), a management
partner at the Washington, DC office of the law firm of Akin, Gump,
Strauss, Hauer & Feld, my former employer, consulted a psychiatrist
named Gertrude R. Ticho, MD (deceased) (then Clinical Professor of
Psychiatry, The George Washington University Medical Center Department
of Psychiatry) who advised him that my complaint of job harassment
appeared to be the product of a psychiatric "disorder" that might be
associated with a risk of violence, rendering me a direct threat in the
workplace. Freedman v. D.C. Department of Human Rights at 4, D.C.C.A.
no. 96-CV-961 (Memorandum Opinion and Judgment, Sept. 1, 1998) ("the
firm . . . learned [upon consulting a practicing psychiatrist] that [Mr.
Freedman's] behavior was indicative of a disorder known as 'ideas of
reference,' which is sometimes accompanied by violent behavior.'). Dr.
Ticho did not assess me in person and thus her professional opinion was
a violation of the American Psychiatric Association's (APA's) so-called
Goldwater rule which prohibits a psychiatrist from offering a
professional psychiatric opinion about an individual without benefit of a
personal exam and without obtaining the individual's consent for the
opinion. Dr. Ticho's psychiatric opinion, upon which the U.S. Social
Security Administration relied in making its disability determination
that I became disabled and not suitable for employment effective October
29, 1991 (the date of Akin Gump's job termination), lacked any medical
reliability and was defamatory.
In September 1992 I underwent a two-hour psychiatric assessment at The
George Washington University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry.
The assessing psychiatrist, Napoleon Cuenco, MD, diagnosed me with
bipolar disorder. Earle W. Baughman, MD (703 836 9078), a supervising
psychiatrist at St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, DC, can verify
that I do not suffer from bipolar disorder.
In August 1993 Suzanne M. Pitts, MD (deceased) recommended that I take
the anti-psychotic medication, Haldol for an unspecified psychotic
disorder. There is some suggestion in handwritten notes prepared by Dr.
Pitts that her medical recommendation was retaliatory, made in response
to a complaint I had filed against her with the D.C. Board of Medicine.
In May 1994 I underwent comprehensive psychological testing at The
George Washington University Medical Center performed by Yu-Ling Han
under the supervision of William D. Fabian, Ph.D. The testing failed to
disclose that I suffered from any psychiatric disorder of any kind and
failed to disclose the presence of psychotic thought processes. I was
not on any medication at the time of testing.
In February 1996 Dimitrios Georgopoulos, MD of The George Washington
University Medical Center diagnosed me with paranoid schizophrenia, a
psychotic mental illness. Earle W. Baughman, MD (703 836 9078), a
supervising psychiatrist at St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, DC,
can verify that I do not suffer from paranoid schizophrenia.
In March 1996 I was administered the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test (WCST)
by Ramin Mojtabai, MD (under the supervision of Robert Jenkins, Ph.D.)
at The George Washington University Medical Center Department of
Psychiatry. I scored 6 errors, the lowest meaningful score. The WISC
is a test of psychotic thinking. A low score is considered a rule out
for psychotic mental illness. I was not on any medication at the time
Currently, The George Washington University Medical Center Medical
Faculty Associates apparently has no interest in conducting an internal
investigation of this matter or of making a criminal referral to federal
authorities about this matter.

At the McClendon Center we take allegations of Medicare/Medicaid fraud and abuse
Actual fraud would have been committed if Nurse Carroll had billed for services
that she didn't provide. I have no reason to believe that she did not see you
on the days for which she billed, so I believe no fraud was committed.
can encompass a range of issues. It can vary from claiming too much
(or too little) time with the patient, or it can be committed if you did
not have a valid treating diagnosis.
Your file contains the following diagnoses:
Delusional Disorder (297.1), Major Depression Recurrent Severe Without Psychotic Features (296.33), Alcohol Dependence in Sustained Remission (303.90), and PTSD
(309.81), and Schizoid Personality Disorder (301.20). These diagnoses were made
Aimee Calderone-Burgess, who is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social
worker, and therefore qualified to diagnose mental health conditions in
the District of Columbia. As you have valid DSM diagnoses and are being
appropriately treated by an Advance Practice Registered Nurse, I
believe your allegations of Medicare/Medicaid fraud are unfounded.
it is your prerogative to contact an appropriate agency such as the
Office of Health Care Ombudsman to register your concerns. You have my
assurance that we will cooperate fully in any investigation conducted by
any oversight agency at which you register a complaint.

Subject: Medicare Fraud by Nurse Sara F. Carroll
To the D.C. Department of Health:
I am prescribed medication by nurse Sara F. Carroll at the McClendon Center, a DC
Core Service Agency for mental illness. I consult nurse Carroll once
every two or three months for medical management for unspecified mental
illness. Nurse Carroll continues to treat me and bill Medicare and
Medicaid (QMB Program) for her services despite the fact that I do not
now nor have I ever suffered from mental illness. I believe nurse
Carroll's behavior constitutes a fraud on the Medicare system.
