Dr. John Michael Lonergan spent time in prison in Ohio for tax evasion, mail fraud, and healthcare fraud in Ohio and lost his license to practice medicine in 2005. But the forgiving people of Oklahoma decided in 2012 to let him practice in their state ‘under state supervision’ and in March 2013, the state medical board released him from the supervision and he was free to do what he wanted.
But now comes this story of people who paid him to get what he called ‘Jesus Shots’ that takes away pain for life! At a mere $300, it seemed like a bargain and many people got them. Because why not? He’s a doctor and must know what he’s doing, right? And with a name like Jesus, it’s got to be good.
What was in those injections? I’m glad that you asked because no one, not even the people in the clinic where he works, seems to know. All they could say is that it contains a ‘mysterious formula’. Maybe the people getting it felt that like Jesus turning water into wine, the Jesus Shot would be transformed inside their bodies into a universal pain killer.
For the sake of the people who got those injections, I sincerely hope that it was a harmless placebo. Then the only thing they would have lost is their money.
