Mr. Gerald Kiley States:
He heard about Pronto Pharmacy thru a friend of his who had been coming to Pronto because he too was having problem getting his prescriptions filled in the Fort. Meyer, Cape Coral area.
Mr. Kiley, after reviewing statement from the August 23, 2019 Order To Show Cause (OTSC-PP8-19) issue to Pronto Pharmacy, states he pays by cash because he has no insurance, that he is not a junkie and not selling his medications and he has to pay by cash and that he is not wealthy. He refutes the DEA assertion he is abusing his medication(see IMG_9158.mov-gerald_k_se.copy,2.52mins)
Mr. Kiley, further reviewed and was read the OTSC(PP8-19) in which the DEA opined that traveling distance was a significant “red flag” and the prescriptions being filled by Pronto-Pharmacy were being diverted and should not have been filled.
Mr. Kiley, strongly disagree with the DEA’s assertion, he states: he is not abusing his medication, diverting his medication, he says “I’m am 61 years old and falling apart,” and has not violated any State or Federal law…(see img_9159mov-GK-reviews_OTSC-pp8-19_and Don_Sullivan…copy, 3mins)
Mr. Kiley, states: He’s driving more than 200 miles to have his prescription for non acute pain, which is typed on the prescription. Mr. Kiley, also states in this video he went to the Pharmacy next door to his physicians off, and that pharmacist told him he didn’t have the medication (see img_9162.mov-GK_identified_disease-states_copy,2.37 mins).
Pharmacist, Norman J Clement stated at the time he believed the pharmacist next door to his physician was lying. Pharmacist, Norman J Clement latter learned the Pharmacy was “AT COST PHARMACY”, the Pharmacist was Aaron Howard PharmD. Pharmacist, Clement also learn he and Howard had worked together while both had been employed by CVS Pharmacy. Aaron Howard had graduated from Florida A&M University College of Pharmacy with my daughter (AC Clement) in 2003.
Pharmacist, Aaron Howard spoke with Clement on December 8th, 2019 stated “Clement’s statement are correct and true,” and that he did mis-lead Mr. Kiley and many other patients because he was becoming increasingly afraid to fill control medication because the DEA was harassing him at his store.
Pharmacist, Aaron Howard, learned of the Pronto Pharmacy plight and called Clement while he was on the Golf Course Sunday morning November 24, 2019. The two struck it well and Clement learned of a 3rd DEA raid on Gulf Coast Pharmacy, 11/18/2019 where an Order To Show Cause (OTSC-GCP11-19)
was issued to Pharmacy owner Ricardo Fertil PharmD. Fertil and Howard had been business partner but separated in early 2016.
Howard and Fertil are not generally on speaking terms however realize DEA was targeting Black Owned Pharmacies likely under the believe they were easy enforcement targets. Yet despite their difference and grievance both have united/join forces together with Clement, Guy Decker RPh., Jack Folson RPh., Walter R Clement, law enforcement, Richard C. Clement, C-Systems tech., Norman L Clement, pharm-tech., Jelani Z. Clement B.S., MBA as “THE TEAM”, our Coach is DALE SISCO Esq.
Mr. Kiley, agrees he’s been profiles and being punished and assigned both State and Federal Criminal Violation of the law (see img_9163.mov_Miles_Disease-states_1.04 mins).
because he is having to travel, “as far he knows everything is legal, it has the doctors DEA number on the prescriptions.” I din’t know there was going to be a problem (see OTSC-pp8-19),
