    Anyone questioning the seriousness of this man's guilt - should not. The travesty of this whole matter is the havoc and gross malpractice spread in the name of medicine and to well meaning patients/victims. Psychopath is right on the money. The people at the developmental center were, indeed, helpless - but the administration was not. Yet the charade continued and 'medical' decisions were made that were significantly outside any hippocratic intent or allegiance. Alas ethics and Dr MacNeill did not cross paths. Sad news to others that did.

    I agree 100% with "what the" @ 8:11 am. I was unfortunate enough to be a patient of "Dr." MacNeils. He had me life flighted out for what he thought was a fracture in my skull. Turns out it was the line where the skull plates grow together. His lack of expertise cost my parents and their insurance thousands of dollars for nothing. To F Brown @ 5:07 pm. No one is casting stones at him, just stating some facts that he should never practice medicine again. Unless of course he goes back gets his G.E.D. Thats right he never even graduated high school. Then continues onto college and does his pre-med then to grad school and residency. He should have to earn a lisence before he gets it back.

    The whole situation is unbelieveable. He should not be treating anyone. Can you imagine what could and probably did happen to those poor people at the developmental Center? Medically fragile individuals who can not verbally explain what is wrong? He would have shown his cards sooner if he had clients who could question his decissions for their care. And file questionable practices with the State licensing board. What was the Administrator at the Developmental Center thinking? She really missed the boat on this one. What else has she missed?

    10 years, he never went to med school and earned a real degree, so why would it be 10 years? He should never be able to get a med license again.

    I think he'd do more good practicing medicine than being in prison.

    Cracker Jack boxes? Next time you need professional medical care for you or your family tell your doctor that.

    We only see what he got caught at. Impressive, seemingly professional, deceitful - falsifying transcripts. Reminiscent of some of the symptoms of the primary psychopath - but only a professional can make this diagnosis. See Cleckley, "The Mask of Sanity".

    and here I just thought utah doctors got their license to practice medicine out of cracker jack boxes, I never would have thought they would be that crooked.
