sounds like the man dedicated his life to alleviating pain.. Sounds like the undercover officers did a little lying of their own.. should the doctor have a lie detector machine in his office.. Shame on them for faking the misery that so many of us suffer...

I wonder if he wasn't helping so many black people and low income people and people who couldn't afford the outrageous price of medicine, would it have gone as far as it did. He was a very good doctor and human being. The people who caused him to second guess his life, was it worth a man loosing him life? How can you sleep at night.

Shame on you..........
Truly missing you

Wow, I just heard the news about Dr.Feldman and it's very heartbreaking. Dr. Feldman was a very funny, kindhearted man. The fact that he made this decision is proof that he was as ordinary as you and I. We've all made mistakes but some too hard to bare. I only wish that I could speak to him one last time and thank him for being the respectful, considerate, professional and funny man that he was. Dr. Feldman, despite your wrong doings and bad choices, you were loved and will be missed!!!! To all of you," ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE US"!!!

I was a patient of the Dr. Feldmans for about 4 years. I never saw him or anyone in the office do anything wrong. If he was guilty of doing wrong, it was because his heart led him to try to help everyone that came through his doors. He shared in the sadness of his patients and gleemed in the victory of his patients. Its hard to find doctors now a days that truely care about you as a person.
I will miss my doctor and my friend. I, and all of his loyal patients supported him and told him that personally from day one of this bullshit.
I feel for his family. If we miss him like we do, they must be devestated. God bless The Feldman Family and take care of our favorite doctor in Heaven like he took care of so many of us on earth.

That is right he had a very dark side that he did not show when patients were around. He was very difficult to work for. Everything was about money and what checks came in the mail and when not enough came every employee in the office paid for it. You did what you were told or you were gone. He wanted that office to be your whole world because it was his. He was always coming up with some kind of plan to make millions. I feel sorry for his family they seemed like nice people.

I was a friend of one of his daughters and he was one of the most kind, caring people I ever met. He cared for his family, friends, and people he didn't even know about. I loved spending time at his house and listening to his interesting stories. The information that surfaced never once changed my opinion of Mr. Feldman, and I am truly sorry that he is now gone.

Yes...WOW-its always sad to see someone so distraught over the decisions they make come to such a tragic demise.
Probably know you too--he had some pretty on the ball staff. I always thought they were covering up for his BS though.
I saw him for my back and I live in alot of pain with my back...however--yes, I saw a GREEDY side to him that was incredibly nasty and not at all ethical or compassionate.

The only thing he cared about was his fee. I soon realized he had gotten in say over his head and was becoming greedy and a true drug pusher and when I asked him about this...he told me off.

If you did not have your fee preferably CASH would leave you to die on the side of the road. KK

I was a patient of Dr. Feldman's and even though it has been quite a while now, I will say this: I had seen a harsh side to him as well, however; how many of us have ever had to deal with employees, the medical boards, the federal authorities, and yes, even us patients whom can be a real "Pain" at times too!

Now as far as you employees, who have come forward to complain about the man, the doctor, and his methods, especially those of you whom commented on how "greedy" he was: Did he ever stiff you on your pay? Did he ever not pay you at all?
How many of you ever ran a medical practice, tried to actually help people, and live your life, and provide for your family, as well as, work your way through the myriad of federal guidelines, and state
medical rules, which would in many cases; ensure, that you were NOT able to provide the medication, which you KNEW, would ease the pain, and suffering of so many patients.
Walk a mile in a man shoes, and you will ..........be a mile a way when he goes looking for them, and he will be running after you with no shoes! Yeah! right, that is the new version of an old saying, and is just how most people today, would use it! I agree, with the previous post: Shame on y'all for talking poorly of the deceases, who perhaps was a shrewd business man, and was sure to collect his fee, however, he has paid the ultimate price, and you are all still sitting there, wishing he was around to ease your pain, now aren't you?

You say he never hurt anyone? You can't speak for everyone. I was referred to him after I was in a car accident. He had me on valium and other narcotics. I didn't want to get addicted so I refused to take these drugs. I thought he would help me with my back pain, but all he did was prescibe pain killers. I went to another doctor later and ended up having a surgery. I feel bad about what happened to him, but if you are living your life right you can face the music and know you will be vindicated.

I am very very sorry to learn about the passing of Bruce Feldman.I went to day camp with him and his brother. I sat next to him in biology class in high school. He always got A's on the tests...I thought Bruce would make a fine doctor some day and he was. His mother and younger sister from what I recall were the nicest, kindest people you would ever meet.It was a real shame what happened...Sending a supportive hug to the entire Feldman family.
