Awareness is The Best Medicine


 Thank you notes and Testimonials

We are posting some of the comments from physicians that Dr Willner has helped over the past 15 years.

  • Dear Dr. Willner,

    Thank you for listening to me and trying to help me. You are a very good person, honest, sincere, trust worthy, over all a person who really cares and says and does what is practical/real/helping with open amount of money can do that....I am so much grateful I met you and you are helping me.

    Thank you DOC.... You are one of a kind...

  • Dear Rich,

    Thank you for enrolling me in the CPRJ's physician education center. The volume of information contained in the program was impressive. It was very educational and enlightening to review the sixty landmark legal cases that involved and went against "disruptive" physicians. I was floored by the case summary suspensions and the catastrophic consequences they cause. Most fascinating was how there seemed to be an automatic presumption of psychiatric of substance abuse problems in the physicians accused.

    As physicians we deal with out peers as our " colleagues" and assume they will understand our behavior. I now realize, with the help your program and ability to effectively communicate this information, that physicians must review the peer review process as a legal one and not "grand rounds". It is so important that physicians understand the meaning of the work" disruptive" and how nurses and other hospital staff apply it to our behavior with almost complete immunity.

    Your program is complete and thorough in every way and I am sure it is in no small part due to your passion for your job. You are able to motivating and demanding or your physicians, but in a funny and dynamic way. Most importantly, I am certain that this program can improve performance and patient care.

    As CEO of the CPRJ you show a unique passion and attention to physicians needs which makes a winning combination.

    Again, thank you so much for the hard work you have done for me and all of CPRJ's clients.
  • Dear Dr. Wilner,

    Thanks for your help again. You truly are a physician advocate for life. You successfully help me reverse a Hospital Summary Suspension in the past. I successfully got a physician job and hospital privileges in another Hospital. I was being a doctor caring for my patients and being an advocate for them. The Health insurance wanted to have meeting with me. I got nervous and "out of the blue" one week before the meeting, you called me to ask how I was doing and do I like my job. I told you about my meeting coming up with the insurance company and you gave me tips to help me with meeting. When I had the meeting with the insurance company, I " hit the ball out of the park" in defending myself. The insurance wanted me to save money them money, rather than be an advocate for my patients, I told them my commitment to saving them money and I am "safe" for now thanks to your advice. God Bless You!

  • Hi, The widow of a physician driven to suicide told me of your Center. I am thrilled, as I am now unemployed and unemployable as a result of character assassination and State Board malice.

    I will call you Monday for more information and to join, but wanted to send this after reading your web site, to let you know that you are a beacon in the wilderness, a light of reassurance and a comfort simply by being there.

    I cannot tell you how eager I am to get involved, to join you, and to plead for your help.

  • Dr. Richard Willner, the director of the Center for Peer Review Justice, has been an ardent, strong supporter of me during the attempts of my ex-business partner and my wife's ex-husband to destroy my professional career. These two professionals (?) filed complaint, after complaint in an attempt to get my license suspended and revoked between 2004 and 2008. Despite obstacle after obstacle in my battle to save my professional career, we prevailed with the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts. That is not to say, I didn't get reprimanded. It must continue medical record-based supervision until 2012; faced public censure; and fines. The "win" for us was that I am able to continue to treat hundreds of patients who rely on me for their professional treatment. My patients have been loyal and dedicated to me. I remain loyal and dedicated to them. I owe my professional career to my patients and Dr. Richard Willner. Thank you for your ongoing support.

    Subject: What it's Like to Work with Richard Willner

    One word INTENSE! He never gives up and never gives in!!  If he tells you to do something that you think is strange or even crazy, just do it. He is much more experienced about what he does then you will ever be.

    Winning isn't everything with Richard, it the ONLY thing! You will know this within the first five minutes you talk to him. He is tough, blunt and relentless and all those are compliments. I cannot predict the future outcome but do know that everything will be left out on the field of battle. All efforts will be expended.

    That"s what it means to work with Richard Willner.

  • Richard----
    thank you again for your help in successfully derailing a sham peer review at the Hospital. I request your help currently in my future participation with the hospital.

    Over the past 5 years, I hardly ever admit patients to the Hospital nor do I perform elective surgery at their facilities. However, I have been MANDATED to perform on-call at the hospital 1 out of every 6 nights. 3 months ago a brand new specialist came to to the city and was hired by another Hospital and given full privileges at my Hospital but has never been on the call schedule. What I am looking for from your standpoint is options that I can pursue whereby I would be dismissed from on-call obligations with the condition that I can admit and treat my PRIVATE patients under emergency circumstances without harassment. I have submitted my renewal of privileges with WRITTEN omission of facial trauma, elective tracheostomy, transfer of patients from the operating room to the ICU (the subject of my sham peer review), conscious sedation, pediatric airway, and pediatric emergencies on unassigned patients. I also made it clear in writing that I do not participate in Medicaid. I have not heard any response----they may make it easy by denial of renewal. If they harass me over it, yet they allow a brand new specialist physician to skate out of call unopposed, I may need you and your attorney to help me push them back.

    Dear Dr. Willner,
    I along with the members of the First Emmanuel Baptist Church located at 1301 Solon Street, Gretna, Louisiana would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your personal concern for patients starting up the Diabetic Black American Outreach Program. The valuable information you provided regarding Diabetes and the Black community did indeed help answer many questions that the members had. In many instances for those in attendance ths questions answered and information you provided were the first step in recognizing and dealing with the serious problem of Diabetes. This outreach program already has proven to be very successful. In the short period of time it has reached Black at the following churches: Secondary Highway Baptist Church, Regular Baptist Church, St. Stephens Baptist Church.
    So again, I would like to thank you for doing something that has never been done before. You have stretched out your hands to a community, and race or people that had little knowledge of a very serious problem affecting them. The implementation of the Diabetic Black American Outreach Program will help many of those that would not otherwise seek help or answers to many of their questions or concerns.
    Rev. Alvin J. Jackson

  • To Whom It May Concern:

    It is with great pleasure and a sense of gratitude that I recommend Richard Willner and his Center for Peer Review Justice to you.

    I was fortunate to have come to know Mr. Willner shortly after I became involved in seemingly insurmountable difficulties regarding my medical
    practice. I can truly say that Richard was a real life saver for me.

    At a time when my world seemed to be crashing down on my head, Richard Willner was sent like an angel to help me in my fight for justice.

    It was very lucky for me that Mr. Willner and his Center for Peer Review Justice were involved in the areas of Peer Review, Licensing and Data Banking and has carved
    out a niche in which he utilizes "extra legal" and "extra judicial" defenses to come to the aid of doctors who are paralyzed by a legal morass in which the other side seems to have all the protection and there is not the legal protections that we expect in America. The fact is that Boards and Peer Review Panels do not work under the premise that you are innocent unless proven guilty. They see their role as one to protect the public even if it means that the professional is wrongly convicted or restricted. Sometimes they have other less noble motives.

    In a field where the success rate is very low because the other side has immunity, he seems to win for his "clients"/doctors.

    He gives lectures to healthcare lawyers and is well respected by his peers. Each case is different. There are different situations and different players, so he develops creative
    solutions which change with the playing field. Don't expect a cookie cutter job. He won't tell you what he is going to do. He gets to the bottom of things and gets results one step at a time.

    Over the last two years, I have seen his clients/doctors have satisfactory results time and time again. Often the wins are very quiet. Sometimes, I have seen where he has toppled a corrupt Board and its lawyer or mounted a legislative battle to result in a win. Richard knows how to utilize the media to your best use. Most wins are much lower key. He has been a trial consultant and keeps up with cases all over the country.

    He is intensely focused with your winning and staying in practice, whether it is making some behind the scene calls or working to get data bank information changed to better reflect a situation. Sometimes he is just there to support you emotionally so you have the strength to win the game.

    Richard Willner started the field of "extra-legal/ extra-judicial" defense with his Center for Peer Review Justice. He affordably provides things that lawyers are unable to do. Certainly, you need to have expert Legal Advice as well. Mr. Willner balances your defense with an offense which the system is not expecting.

    I might liken using a legal defense to playing piano with only the white keys. Mr Willner's extra-legal defense, rounds out your program with the black keys....The sharps and the flats that are needed to get you through a perilous situation.

    I would heartily recommend Mr Willner to most people wanting a full defense.

  • Dear Richard,
    I've written this recommendation of your work to share with other LinkedIn users.

    Details of the Recommendation: "Dr. Willner is an experienced advocate. He represents physicians and other licensed health care providers around the country who have been accused of wrongdoing and are facing the loss of their hospital privileges and / or their license to practice medicine. Notably, Dr. Willner has been able to succeed in cases where legal representation may have failed. While there are some cases where even Dr. Willner may not ultimately prevail, his clients are assured of a hard-fought battle on their behalf. As an attorney, I heartily welcome Dr. Willner's expertise and assistance in peer review cases."

    Just under a year ago, I was in danger of losing my career. I was thrown into an experience which was horrifying, stressful, expensive, and downright degrading. I was being attacked. When I first spoke with you, I was afraid you would think I was a horrible person (as those shammers would have one believe.)

    You listened and saw the truth and helped me; you stuck with me and we ended up victorious. I wanted to thank you for all your help. that sounds so trite in comparison to all you did for me. You truly are a saint. You even took the time to speak with me late at night when I would call terrified about keeping my career. You are intelligent, committed, energetic, and innovative; and you have many good friends in many places. You are dedicated to your work and to doing the right thing whatever it takes. I commend you.
    You are probably responsible for many lives being saved that you don't even know of. Why? Because you save the practices of those physicians who are the good ones, who get wrongly accused by the bad ones. You really should be sainted or knighted or something like that. Words do not do justice to express my heartfelt appreciation to you!

    Dr. Willner,

    I just want to express my heart felt gratitude towards you. I truly believe God put you in my life as a guardian angel. When I first contacted you, I felt relieved just to have someone to talk to who believed in me and offered me guidance throughout this whole process. I had no idea what a huge role you would play in helping me get my license. Throughout the months, I have not always known exactly what your plans would be or what you were doing behind the scenes, but now in looking back, it all makes sense. I know I say this a lot, but I definitely feel as though you were made for doing what you do. You have the knowledge and experience to correct the wrongs of the medical field, but above all, you have the heart. You have a heart of gold and truly care about people, and that is why you are so successful.

    The past few weeks leading up to the medical board hearing were so stressful and I could not have gotten through it without you. I can never express enough to you my gratitude for you driving all the way down here to be at my side during the hearing. Without you, I would not have a license or a career in medicine. You have made a friend for life. Please let me know if there is anything I can ever do for you...

     Dear Rich,

    Until recently, I had never known the real depths of despair.  As an individual who has desired to be a physician from a very young age, witnessing first-hand the near destruction of my career was tantamount to being annihilated as a person.  Your perseverance to rectify my situation and to seek-out the hidden method to unravel and thus resolve the dilemma of my career is nothing but phenomenal.  The drive with which you approached the case and your unyielding desire to see this “wrong” put to “right” is remarkable.  Few individuals have the motivation to help anyone in a situation such as this, yet you assisted me although I was previously unknown to you.  Quickly, you established a method to salvage my career. You did that for me as well as many others.  I can not thank you enough for the work that you have accomplished.

    If I could reward you the Nobel Prize for humanitarianism… I would do so.  There are many unsung heroes in this world.  You are definitely one of them.  A civil rights activist of sorts…. Leading the fight for those unjustly accused who have committed no crime except that of desiring quality.  Unfortunately, the medical community has named the outspoken disruptive.  Ironic, I think, in a land where speech is to be free.  Is it really free if it costs one his/her career?  I think not.

    I applaud your efforts and those of your hidden “band of brothers” who guide you along the way.

    May you continue to persevere for those of our medical family who are unjustly persecuted.

    Please continue your grass-roots efforts to inform the uninformed of the misnomer assigned to the phrase peer review.

    With heart-felt gratitude,

    Richard all of you will be recognized for your good deeds.  Since experiencing the process first hand the world seems a much more complex place than just a few months ago.  I look around and every one is gunning for doctors.  What is the point of all this schooling, training, experience and talent if groups want you obliterated on whim?  Is this the price of physician existence constant? vigilance, preparation, and engagement?    As an aside I remember Clarence Thomas during his nomination hearings refer to a "lynching"  Justice Thomas has no clue what a real lynching is. 

    Modern organized medicine is a joke.  Physicians need to take some of that money they are throwing away and donate it to a group that can help them where the rubber meets the road.

    The "REAL" organized medicine is the CPRJ and its think tank.

    Dear Rich,

    It has been a pleasure working with you. By taking your advice, even when it seemed to go against what some attorney and medical practice advisors told me, I am saved. Unless you have experienced a shamming, you won't know how isolating and anxiety producing life in the hospital trenches can be. Your experience and knowledge were my light and beacon. You can't cover true light with darkness.

    All of the "experts" that I have had to use in my situation did their jobs, you actually helped me stay on the correct course. I now have many "experts" interested in your opinion and we have been working with your advice in mind.

    My husband was happy that I could call you late at night, over weekends, multiple times when we needed to do some problem solving. I was actually able to have some wonderful family moments during this very rough patch, because the Center helped me to "decompress".

    Some of my colleagues, who knew I was being shammed, were impressed by how happy and calm I was during my peer review process. It wasn't Prozac; it was Rich. I was able to stay positive and focused on saving my career because you helped me maintain my confidence in myself.

    My life took a different course than expected. I am on the verge of some wonderful opportunities. It was because you kept me strong with my head held high, that I was able to see that there were other places to use my skills. You have many connections to very useful and talented people. It was wonderful to belong to this medical, professional fraternity.

    I owe you everything. I will gladly help others if I can. Please let me know what I can do. Sham peer review is a career - ender. Sham peer review should be stopped. It can happen to anyone.

    It is really quite amazing to me the degree of perseverance you have for working on these sham peer review cases. As we all know, some of these cases take a great deal of time to resolve, yet you continue to look for windows of opportunity until there is a resolution. The resolution we all seek is to get back to work in our field of training, and nobody has a success record that can compare to yours.
    I want to thank you for your consideration and continuing efforts, and always being available whenever I have a question or a problem. I can't think of anyone else, in any business, who is literally available all hours of all the days of the week! I cannot imagine trying to negotiate this course without your assistance.

  • Dear Rich,
    Thanks for being a light in the darkness. Losing my license because bad people did things in my office has been the pits. You have been a great encouragement to me; and helped me to reach out and do the right thing and the positive "makes a difference thing". You have given me worthwhile and supportive advice and helped me to get through these bad days. It has helped me to understand the people and power plays behind the injustice.

    You have helped me get to a positive outcome. I think you have a great grasp of the games being played .I just would like you to know that I count you among my friends. Sometimes you have to do what creates the best outcome, not what ever comes first to mind. I was really too mad and down to think straight.

    I would recommend your consulting for anyone that gets shot down by a very flawed system. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    Dr. Willner,
    I want to thank you for your support throughout my dealings with peer review fraud since 2001. You have truly helped my family and I survive this crime.

    Your knowledge and expertise have proven to be invaluable in matters of peer review fraud. I would strongly recommend that anyone who thinks they may be involved in a medical staff conflict contact you immediately. To ignore this recommendation is foolhardy, and could mean the end of a career. Those of us who have been through these events know. You are truly an expert, if not the only expert, in this field.

    A physician may be represented by one of the best attorneys money can buy, but I guarantee they are still handicapped if they don't have your support. No affiliation with any physician group (AMA, TMA, etc.) is going to significantly help, either. Of all the money I have spent on defending myself, I have only seen returns on the investment in time and money I have made with you and your organization.

    In fact, I fear there is nobody who could continue the services that you and your organization provide should anything happen to you. So, you and your family are welcome to stay at my home anytime a hurricane threatens Louisiana again.

    I never knew such acts as peer review fraud were possible in the U.S. Fortunately, you have been helping victims of peer review fraud successfully fight this (type of crime) for years! Your organization is more valuable, both to the physician and the public, than the AMA.

    Comment about Dr Willner August 2004

    You are unique.
    Lawyers are not unique.

    When people encounter something or someone unique, they tend to shy away from him or it, not knowing what to make of it. Such is the curse of greatness and uniqueness.

    Many people initially thought Einstein was a hopeless idiot.
    He was different.
    Ugly attitudes is like flak.
    You know you are flying over the target when you start to see flak all around you.
    Smile, you're the one in the plane with the bombs.

    No you wouldn't do anything else.
    I know you better than that.
    You really like what you do, and you do it well.
    Whether idiots recognize that or not doesn't matter.
    Remember, they are the idiots.

    And, I appreciate your methods.

    When you are outnumbered and outgunned, and there is nothing fair about the playing field, the only option is "under the radar," stealth, "guerilla warfare."

    Richard Willner is clearly the front runner in the area of Advocacy in the Peer Review Arena.

    This is an area where the Peer Review Organizations enjoy an incredible shield of Immunity which insulates them from having grievances addressed in a legal arena.

    These are human Beings making decisions on issues that often relate to personality, professional relationships, often secret, personal agendas, market shares, styles of practice, life styles, race, religion and many other things that should not be part of the peer review process.

    Richard Willner has mastered the area of Extra Legal Methods to address the Peer Review Organizations.  How do you Shine a Light on things that these Boards and Committees have done.  They do not like the negative publicity that results when their mistakes and often corruption is made public.

    Advocacy costs money.  One should not expect it to be free.  People who promote things deserve to be compensated.  That is whether they are advocating as a Lobbyist, or preparing an advertising campaign for a product or your practice.  Richard Willner acts as a personal advocate for individuals to bring their case to light, or possibly to restore a reputation that has been trashed. 

    There are not many people who do what Richard Willner does.  Where would you begin to find someone with his skills or even to know that someone with his skills exists when you need them Certainly the best place to tell people about yourself and your services is anywhere that you are explaining what has happen need to others.

    You may not like the fact that there is someone there advocating for people who have gotten shafted...but he has been successful because you know he is there.

    Richard WILLNER is a Master of the Extra Legal Approach to Defense against Administrative Injustice.  You should be thankful that there is someone that is there to help you when you need him

    "My thanks to Dr. Willner for taking so much time to speak with me. I plan to inform my attorney that I would like to obtain advice from your organization in order to put a stop to S.M. Hospital from their repetitive career assassinations. They have their own HMO, and if you do not "belong" to the chosen group then you are a target. I've been threatened directly by the administrator to join their group or he'll "drive me out of town." They also have one particular physician who has sold his soul to S.M. Hospital  and readily criticizes any and all individuals whom he just does not like. The S.M. Hospital also has a surgeon who is one of their HMO docs who is used to ruin the "outside" surgeons....Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have enjoyed a stellar career in surgery and have an impeccable reputation in community. BUT, the hospital and their paid whores have tarnished it."

    One day, all of us that are committed to this very important issue where medicine and law converge will celebrate HCQIA's being amended to mandate constitutional due process and move the burden of persuasion from the physicians to the Hospitals. We are only one Supreme Court case away.

    Keep up the good work.

    5/12/04  - "To Whom it May Concern:
    I am writing this to commend Richard Willner, president of the Center for Peer Review Justice, Inc. In a very short period of time, he developed a plan and approach that saved my professional career. If I had taken the approach that I had in mind, I would have undeservedly though undoubtedly lost my hospital privileges. Due to what I experienced of Richard Willner’s passion, dedication, creativity, and keen intelligence - I recommend him to all physicians in all the varieties and all stages of trouble that we can find ourselves in. If Harriet Tubman can be called the Moses of African Slaves, I think it is appropriate to call Richard Willner the Moses of beleaguered physicians."

    Thank God for Richard Willner!

     When I was at my lowest point in my ongoing battle for the right to work in the field of my dreams, that for which I trained for 6 years and in which I am board certified, a voice came to me over the phone, telling me that I am not alone in this farce that is called "disciplinary action by the Board" or "peer review". He got me in touch with others whom I could support and who could support me.

    I was given renewed hope and will stand tall for what is right and speak out for what is wrong. I will remain a proponent of the patient's (and their surrogates') right to make their own decision about their End of Life Care and of the physician's duty to abide by that decision. I will also remain a proponent of a patient's right to a dignified and comfortable death, without fear, anxiety and/or pain. That is the law and I followed the law, despite accusations to the contrary.  

    With the support of the Center, Richard Willner and my lawyers, I am confident that justice (or some semblance thereof) will prevail. If my accusers win, Critical Care, End of Life Care (including Hospice Care) will be set back decades and patients will once again SUFFER death.


     Post to Forum - "The director of the Sham Peer Review Organization, actually a podiatrist, has demonstrated absolutely enormous accomplishments that are now changing the very face of MD, DO, DDS and DPM peer review!"

    Before Rich got involved there was a media blackout on sham peer review. HIPPA is not much different.

    Now people are beginning to realize that institutional peer review is another name for corporate pseudoscience and mis-accounting practices. The future holds great promise for the Center and its sincere and indefatigable founder, Rich Willner. I am glad to be his friend. I can count on one hand how many people i have met in life that have the same level of commitment to a just and noble cause.  

    Dr Willner has been a helping hand to fellow physicians for 15 years



    Rich has saved physicians from literally pulling out their hair (or worse)
