Pain Clinics Raided in Lake Worth

A pain clinic on Dixie Highway in Lake Worth was one of three raided today by Palm Beach Sheriff's Office deputies. At least one local blogger thinks that the operator is the very same person who just last week was boasting that his was a "legal business."

In a February 25 post, Tom's Page had lamented "Lake Worth's Newest Pain" -- a clinic that appeared very suddenly and became very popular, as evidenced by the photos he posted of the automobile traffic. That elicited an irate, barely literate comment from someone named "Mike," who insisted the clinic was legal and that the blogger should "get a life." But according to that blogger the commenter used an email address that was associated with the pain clinic -- he thinks the commenter is Jeff George, the son of John Paul George, the wealthy real estate developer, who was among those arrested today.
