Linda S. Cheek, MD
Founder, administrator, DoC ambassador
Linda S. Cheek, MD is a best-selling author, educator, former teacher and physician currently forced into temporary retirement from practice thanks to government persecution. She has given up the Pollyanna concept that there is justice in America.
While in practice, she was a family physician with specialization in pain management and the healing alternative medicines of acupuncture, auricular therapy, homeopathy, and prolotherapy. Through the course of her practice she got her patients off medication, off disability, and back to work and a real quality of life.
But she found out that the government isn’t interested in making people healthy and well. Multiple constitutional rights were violated in the two attacks on her practice. Through the course of her experience she has found out that:
- Defense attorneys work only for themselves, even to the point of collaborating with the government.
- Appeals attorneys do absolutely nothing.
- The US Supreme Court doesn’t even hear cases, especially when the government has broken laws to put innocent people in prison.
Through her 26 month prison sentence, she has found out:
- Probably 25 percent of the incarcerated are innocent.
- The Justice Department doesn’t follow its own policies.
- The Justice Department thinks it is above the law, and it would seem so.
- 98% of the time the government is able to convict whomever they target.
How do we combat these statistics? Through information. Our goal in building this website is to provide those about to undergo this process with information we did not have. It is only through information that we can hope to change the current climate of the government attacks on doctors.
