The CPRJ began after the crusade to prove the innocence of a single
physician. In 2000, a podiatrist named Brian Gale worked for the
head of the North Dakota Podiatry Board, and they subsequently had a
falling out. Brian then began working for a group called Bismarck,
which was in direct competition to his previous employer, the head
of the board. After this move, he began being terrorized by the
Podiatric Board. After filing suit, he twice lost in the Court of
Appeals, then at the North Dakota Supreme Court.
In despair, and without any further avenues to pursue, he wrote a
letter to fellow members of the profession and asked for their help.
In stepped his savior, Dr. Richard Willner. Dr. Willner was curious
as to how a physician with 4 years of residency training, the
longest available residency for podiatrists, could possibly be such
a "bad doctor" Of note, Dr. Gale had not a single malpractice suit.
Brian Gale sent him 29 pounds of documents regarding his case, and
Dr. Willner poured through these documents giving each his undivided
At this time, the CPRJ initiated a public relations and media firm
that became so powerful, it salvaged Dr. Gale's professional
reputation, reinstated him in podiatric medicine, and resulted in
the resignation of ALL the members of the North Dakota Board of
Podiatric Medicine. As time passed, this public relations firm has
continued to grow and become more influential. Through the
utilization of technology and multiple databases, the CPRJ has been
essential in highlighting problems with sham peer review and
exposing those individuals who participate in this practice. These
databases include healthcare writers of every national newspaper in
the United States, many thousands of healthcare blogs, and every
major television reporter covering healthcare stories.
The CPRJ has recently partnered with women's groups to specifically
crusade for women faced with disparities in the medical workplace.
These women's groups include political advocacy groups, women's
blogs, individuals focused on women's studies in universities, and
women politicians. The database formed with these partnerships
includes demographic data which is maintained by a battery of
committed volunteers nationwide.
The CPRJ database is used in the plight for physician justice. The
headquarters are located in Dallas, Texas, but this information is
backed up in several states. With 11 years under its belt, the CPRJ
has become exponentially more powerful than it was even in the
beginning years of 2000. From the beginning, the CPRJ has sustained
public relations for greater than a year for those affected.
Physicians involved in sham peer review can finally even the playing
field and have the chance to stand up for what they believe in: a
true and just system.
CPRJ has partnered with the fastest growing medical society, the
America's Medical Society, www.AmericasMedicalSociety.com, to extend it's reach to Medical
doctors, Osteopaths, Podiatrists, Nurses, Physician therapists,
Occupational Therapists, Pharmacists, etc
