Frank Ruhl Peterson

I was born and raised in Manhattan, in an area we locals called the DMZ, as it marks the boundary between Spanish Harlem and the rest of the world. I Became a Heroin user at 15, and a homeless addict at 16 (just short of 17). I lived in the streets of Manhattan; Subways, Central Park, and abandoned buildings in S.Harlem. Consequently, I never finished HS. I "Cleaned-up" at 27; entered College (without HS Diploma); luckily for me, the High School I had attended burned down well before the advent of computers so my records literally, "went up in smoke!" I went on to Medical School in 1984 without completing my degree (I did well enough in College to gain early admission), and became re-addicted to narcotics in 1987 following facial reconstructive surgery. I completed my MD in 1988. After various problems associated with addiction, I completed my Anesthesiology Residency, during which I focused on Cardio-Thoracic Anesthesia, in 1994. After accepting a position at St. Joesph's Hospital in Hazelton, Pennsylvania, I was arrested and sent to prison for diverting narcotics from the Hospital Pharmacy in 1996. I subsequently lost my license to practice Medicine in 1997, and spent a total of 34 months incarcerated on an initial sentence of 10 to 23 months. While in prison I became the subject of a 20/20 segment which was malevolently twisted through disingenuous editing meant to malign and disparage my personal/professional character. While my suspension is technically over, I have repeatedly been denied a license to practice medicine. My sentencing Judge, former Judge Conahan, is currently serving 17 1/2 years, having been convicted of Racketeering and Corruption. Ahhh.....the Luzerne County legal system.....'ya just gotta' love it. (less)
