The man is up a creek without a paddle!! Did anyone else go to Dr Vo over the past few years? I did and I liked him for OBGYN. Guess he won't be around for a few years, now I have to find a new OB? stinks!!

What he did was wrong. I have my IUD inserted by him, had complications and luckily I got it removed by him, I'm praying that the IUD I had was FDA approved.

What upsets me the most is his girlfriend, Brooke Benningfield/Lyons is going on Facebook getting upset with all her "Facebook friends" who are reporting the article defending him.

Brooke, if it wasn't "that big of an issue and if people are just blowing it up out of proportion" then why the hell would the government get involved? And are you kidding me by saying this isn't a big deal!? Not only is this insurance fraud but this is people's lives we're talking About. It may seem nothing to you while you're living the good life that he's provided for you and your kids, oh let me mention that BMW he bought you... But if shoes were reversed you'd be upset as well if you were one of the patients with the IUD!

I understand he's your boyfriend but please think outside the box. It is aN issue and don't let love blind you; please! A good man, a good Christian wouldn't risk others lives in order for him to collect fraudulent money!

I just switched to Dr Vo to be my obgyn during my pregnancy and this news is really upsetting because people keep saying I'm going to have to go to a different Dr now! I really like Dr Vo & everybody I know who have had him say he is an awesome Dr! I really hope he isn't going anywhere because I don't want to switch again! And Brooke, did you go to CHHS & graduate in 2001? if so I went to school with you :-)

Doc vo was not arrested. That is important because had he been arrested it would mean that the government felt he had committed a crim.
However he was not arrested. Still in practice and still doing a good job.
He was accused and not arrested simply because they want money. They most likely have and will again offer a plea deal involving money. Nothing criminal.
You can be upset and mad, you have the right to your opinion. Did he break the law? The grand jury has handed down a indictment. They did NOT arrest him. He is accused. They want money so he obviously did no criminal misconduct or he would be behind bars and no license. That is not the case.
He still has his practice they did not arrest him. They did not say he hurt anyone. They want money. This is all about money.
If you disagree fine, if its not about money then why didn't they arrest him? Because he has to work to pay them the money they want. It's about nothing more than money.
Watch and see.
He is a good obgyn from what women say. He is still licenced and practicing.

Of course, he is still practicing! It takes time for a doctor to lose his license.

He is also indicted, which means the feds do believe he committed a crime! They have to have proof for an indictment to occur. They don't draw nbames out of a hat! He will have to appear before federal court to be arrainged. At that time, a judge can order that he not see patients.(This just happened in Jefferson COunty with anohter doctor who was being arraigned,).

He may be found not guilty. But, he does have federal charges.

Feds normally do not arrest unless it is a violent crime. They indict and arraign and allow the process to proceed.

This is not about his being a good doctor or now. This is about whether or not he committed crimes related to Medicare charges and using unapproved devices brought in from anohter country. t

Also, the feds are not who determine if he loses his license to practice. That is determined by a licensing board and usually does not happen until after a trial or plea bargain. It also can be included in a plea deal that he voluntarily give up his license.

It worries me because I went for my appt yesterday & was informed by the receptionist that he wasn't in so they rescheduled me for Tuesday. I just hope that doesn't keep happening when I go in for my appts. The receptionist acted kind of weird. hopefully he won't go to prison and I can still continue my prenatal care with him.

@man...... not every man out there is a pervert.

any reasoning you have that would make you think that what someone has between their legs is directly related to how knowledgeable one is about their profession is obviously archaic in nature.

i have had bad experiences with both male and female obs that have been awful and also some that have been good with both. when it comes to my health, education and experience and how they treat me as a person is all im concerned with, and i know several other women who feel the same.

much like there are no atheist in the electric chair.... im sure if your loved ones life were on the line you would not be thinking in that moment that a male doc shouldn't be looking at your wives downstairs. if you did that would make you the pervert, not the dr.

well, not every situation is an emergency either, which is 90 percent of pelvic exams, a non emergency situation. and yes it does matter what the gender is, why do we have seperate rest-rooms for?

first off id like to say i am having a high risk pregnancy with twins, and DR VO delivered my daughter in 2010 and has and still does provided exceptional care even above what is asked of him i only trust Dr VO to treat me i don't feel Dr VO did anything wrong there no difference between the Canada version of the Mirena and the American version except there was a batch that was sent to America and one sent to Canada DR VO didn't put you at risk you put your self at risk by getting it he just put it in like you asked if you'd read the drug fact sheet for the FDA approved mirenia you see that in 12 % of the people who get the merinia develop ovarian cysts and also ectopic pregnancy, infection, miscarriage, and early labor and delivery. As many as half the pregnancies that occur in Mirena users may be ectopic. The incidence rate of ectopic pregnancies is approximately 1 per 1000 users per year so if you'd read it instead of leaving it in the bag and throwing it in the trash you'd realize that you put your self at risk so because he got it cheaper from canada big deal i bet you were happy when you got your 4d ultrasound or laid in the comfortable bed that he got from his company doing well i will continue to see DR VO despite of the out come so don't patronize the man for bending the rule and blame him for you making uninformed decisions stand behind him there was obviously a reason you went to him and some of you still do!

YOu do understand while he may have gotten it cheaper in Canada, he did so when breaking the guidelines and rules of the United States,. He then also charged Medicaid and private insurance companies the FULL PRICE for that product here and not the price for it as purchased in Canada...hence fraud to both patient , government and insurance companies.

This has nothing to do with is abilities as a doctor.

i understand he is accused.... and innocent until proven guilty....

i don't think its anyone's right but the judge and jury to decide what he is guilty of....

people need to back off this topic and let the man have his day in court before they start stating things like they are facts.

all we know is what the public has been told by the media... not a far stretch to think that things were probably embelished by them...everything else is.

he may have evidence to clear himself... or he may be guilty as sin.... but none of us know that yet we have already tried and convicted him. sad.....

i wont return to this topic and i hope others will let this die also.

there are charges...no verdict. everyone is due their day in court.

what happens is the Government is getting their case together it may take 6 months maybe a year and then one day the FBI will come in seize all computers all electronics and the same time knocking on you're home door taking all the same stuff computers..etc , and then shit hits the fan they don't get in a hurry...if you're a DOC and fraud medicare they will catch it sooner our later,sorry to say know....2 million dollars later...

Google can be a very good friend. You can find interesting little nuggets like these which prove Dr. Vo was not the only doctor doing this and also explains why doctors were doing this.

It's a shame that the media in Louisville don't know how to use Google. Then perhaps they wouldn't have had to rely completely on an FBI release to report their story. They could have reported the whole story and not taken a hatchet to a man's character just so they could have a salacious story.

Dr. Vo was my obgyn while I was pregnant with my twins. Really have no complaints except for the fact he seems always in such a hurry. Not really personal but overall a good doctor. I myself wouldn't go back because I wanted more of a personal experience. I loved all the women that worked there. They were always very sweet and caring. As for him breaking the law... Well he broke the law.. And that's never a good thing.
