The defense needs to stop with this witness..there killing there defense he is good and is destroying any case the defense had

neil   October 12th, 2011 3:42 pm ET

This defense attorney is acting like a fool. When you find yourself in a hole, STOP DIGGING! Every question designed to introduce some doubt, just get gets the damning points reiterated. His defendent SCREWED UP!!

Maybe he's trying to set up for a mistrial based on incopetent counsel. ??

ML   October 12th, 2011 3:46 pm ET

I have not seen alot of the comments but I am wondering if anyone has thought of the possibility that Dr Murray cut the IV bag to empty the contents and then rinsed the bag to get rid of any Propofol residue and then placed the vile in the empty bag. I have delt with 1000 ml saline bags and when you want to empty the contents fast you cut the bag and dump. Just food for thought.

melinda   October 12th, 2011 3:47 pm ET

This wittness is very easy to follow and he knows his stuff I think the defence just needs to move on

shelly taylor   October 12th, 2011 3:52 pm ET

Why wouldn't Michael Jackson want the best health care available? A board certified physician. He could afford the best, why didn't he have it? Maybe because a board certified physician wouldn't have given in to his demands. Any credibility Murray had was destroyed today. Such a shame to lose Michael Jackson because of Murray's incompetence. Tragic.

andrea   October 12th, 2011 3:54 pm ET

as an RN I know everything this witness said is true about emergency management of the pt

A Principle   October 12th, 2011 3:55 pm ET

A critic just pointed out (on HLN) that Dr. Steinberg lost credibility in saying that if Conrad Murray had called 911 the moment he came back from the bathroom (finding MJ not breathing), and then worked at recusitating MJ, he could have been saved. I don't think he lost credibility...he was using CM's interview saying he only left the room for two minutes to use the restroom. IF that were true, then Dr. Steinberg is very believable. Of course, that's a problem for CM, because I don't think anyone at all believes he was only gone from the room for two minutes. He was gone long enough that there was no hope of successfully saving MJ.

windyblue   October 12th, 2011 3:56 pm ET

MJ mother is the Rock of the family. she always has been. She loves her childern NO matter what they have done/ or will do.
And people need to leave her alone. She has suffered enough with the
loss of MJ.

otti   October 12th, 2011 3:59 pm ET

The point is that people forgets that is a doctor who is being charged, no any citizen. Murray did all the steps wrong and didnt observe any of the rules or procedes an standart cardiologist would. And even worst; how he is gonna explain he withold the info about propofol to paramedics and doctors on emergency room???????? Everything he did was unnaceptable. Clear, brave and profesional Dr. Steinberg!!!

Bernard   October 12th, 2011 4:01 pm ET

Without finding fault w/ Dr. Steinberg, I believe there will be a change of sentiment toward Dr. Murray. At this point in time, it appears that the State is pouring it on. I have to ask myself if the jury isn't asking themselves, "If he did so many things wrong, why does the State need to keep bringing on 'experts' to say that same thing?! This strategy may backfire (although I think Murray was negligent).

Also, Flanigan is a damned good cross -examiner w/ a situation that is a 'hard nut to crack'. He's defintely the best lawyer for the defense, by far. I say that as a trial lawyer w/ decades of trials to verdict. The defense is lucky to have him imo.

Donna Gallo   October 12th, 2011 4:02 pm ET

How ridiculous to say Dr. Steinberg is "too good". He is a PROFESSIONAL. Dr. Murray did not perform his duties in a professional manner ! Thats the point. I would not want to hire a Doctor and pay him $150,000 for this kind of unprofessional care.
Remember he said he researched and came prepared for his day in court. He was well informed and serious about medical ethics and
their are standards that every medical professional has to meet. This is a case about moral, ethics, and integrity in the medical system.
Dr. Murray's problem was he was to comfortable in the enviornment and lazy to meet the expectations of what kind of medical care MJ deserved! What a awlful shame and waste of life over gross neglegence. The choice he made that day will be his worst nightmare til he dies. He chose to save himself over MJ. A terrible mistake.

Karen Dunn   October 12th, 2011 4:03 pm ET

Dr. Steinberg , the cardiologist, with that smile on his face as bad as Dr, Murray's girlfriend, and her instrument looking for fame. Memorized his lines well. Over the top drama man, looking to be famous.

It has become so obvious the reasons for jurors not to view any news aired. So much of the opinions and views while repeated during coverage of the trial is WRONG. Out of context.

MJ was an addict, an adult, and MJ made his own choices. Like every entertainer we have lost to drug over doses is a shame. To blame someone else for their deaths has been attempted in the past. It all comes down to the same bottom addict will get what they want one way or another and will end by death sooner or later if not treated for the underlying issues causing the drug use.

No one can be responsible to another adult 24/7 every minute. I can see MJ thinking he needed more and easily took more drugs even prior to MJ's "MILK". There has already been testimony by the coroner that there is no way of measuring the actual amounts of each drug in a system...only that it is there. The only thing Dr. Murray did wrong was taking the job for a full blown ADDICT because he was famous. Dr Murray got used!

The media makes a circus of every thing anymore. There is so little truth in coverage it is pathetic. According to the coverage and the way it is presented Mr. Murray is guilty in the eyes of the media. Truth is he was negligent only. He is not responsible for MJ's addiction or his death.

dorian   October 12th, 2011 4:15 pm ET

Great prosecution witness. Question- was there a call button in MJ's room to contact other household staff? If so, why didn't Murray use it and get others up there quickly to help. And isn't alot of sleeping disorders related to breathing problems to begin with? Thinking sleep apnea. And even when you call a hospital for help, the machine says if this is an emergency call 911. Seems to me murray was more interested in covering up. This seems to me that Murray knew he wasn't doing things legit.
I think murrays party days are over!

Linda henry   October 12th, 2011 4:16 pm ET

Ok Dr Murray stated he had Michael on oxygen via nasal cannula when ever he administered the proposal. Why has no one checked the records for how many tanks of oxygen had been delivered and replaced. The tank shown in photos would only last few hours. So they would of had to have one full tank per night for propofol.

M.J. Petersen   October 12th, 2011 4:19 pm ET

I worked in an outpatient medical imaging center. We gave conscious sedation and contrast media to many different patients. We had a doctor, nurse, trained imaging technologists and all emergency meds, supplies and crash cart on site. Whenever there was a situation where a patient was in a life threatening situation, we always called 911. We were prepared for emergency situations and it didn't matter, we still had to call 911 because it was the proper and necessary medical procedure.

terri   October 12th, 2011 4:20 pm ET

Slamdunk thanks to Dr.Steinberg.This doctor put the information in the easiest terms that anyone should be able to understand no question about it.

M.J. Petersen   October 12th, 2011 4:24 pm ET

Dr. Steinberg is burying the defense RIP.

Linda henry   October 12th, 2011 4:24 pm ET

Also , I know dr Murray is a cardiologist but was he certified in advanced cardiac life support,(ACLS). Which is training required for running a cardiac arrest. I was a paramedic for many years and we had to rectify every 2 years.I will bet his certain was expired. He also should of had epinephrine, atropine an external pacemaker, lidocaine and a defibrillator at his immediate disposal. Come on he is a cardiologist.He knew the paramedic had all this stuff but was scared to call cause he messed up and killed him.

Kat   October 12th, 2011 4:25 pm ET

This Dr. Steinberg is the BEST. He's so excited to get the truth oput he can barely contain himself. perfect. C.. M. is washed up now. noway out of this one. the more lies he tyold the bigger the hole he dug. This doc needs to get the maximum. So this never happens again. Struicter laws. Where are the others that helped M. J.'s downfall???

Donna   October 12th, 2011 4:26 pm ET

As I recall, Dr Murray disappeared for a few days after Michael died and no one could locate him. Will he be questioned on that?

Stacie Chambers   October 12th, 2011 4:27 pm ET

I'm ABSOLUTELY LOVIN' Dr. Alon Steinberg! Dude is puttin' it down!!! He's givin' it to the defense! Crucifying Dr. Murray! Attorney Flanagan can't even return the rebuttals! That's what I'm talking about! Time to pull out the popcorn! This is getting good!

Linda henry   October 12th, 2011 4:29 pm ET

I can't believe the prosecution did not pick up on the empty o2 tank and question how many Murry had used over the 2 months of treating him.He should of went thru 1 tank a night.I will bet that is the 1 and only tank ordered and delivered to Michael.

virginia   October 12th, 2011 4:33 pm ET

My question is why didn't Dr. Murray go to the bathroom in Michael's bedroom ,where is patient was? Instead he left the room.

Anonymous   October 12th, 2011 4:34 pm ET

I agree with this witness. He is, however, quoting text book recommendations. This situation was not a clinic or hospital situation, where I would expect all these instruments, medication and medical personnel are used due to being sued. I do believe that Michael Jackson was more than aware of the risks and benefits of this particular drug. Murray is done, but I do feel its malpractice. On the other side, anyone who works in the medical profession and i mean anyone, knows for a fact that although these recommendations are in fact true, it isn't always the case that these are present at the time of an emergency. Hospitals have huge insurance as well as doctors to protect themselves and a great big fat paid CEO to protect them. Unfortunately the arrogance of this witness is getting the best of him because he is not answering truthfully in all of his questions because doctors have to be flexible in emergency situations including him, i.e. knife and pen for a tracheotomy. Another example, patient's in hallways versus wards due to overcrowding. Are they by all of the equipment they may require in an emergency? I would bet money that even this witness has not always followed standard procedure. Actually other people who work in hospitals often correct mistakes made by doctors to ensure patient safety, and I‘m not talking about nurses either.

Linda henry   October 12th, 2011 4:35 pm ET

EMPTY Oxygen tank = no oxygen.

C K Madigan   October 12th, 2011 4:41 pm ET

I think the reason Dr Murray didn’t call 911 was because Michael Jackson was already dead when he finally found him, and Murray had not been able to revive Jackson.
So he was trying to figure out what to do and upon knowing there was nothing left to do - he had to cover his tracks and start to figure out a story to cover everything, pick up any evidence that would condemn him.
Then he knew legally he was going to have to notify the authorities and it took him this amount of time to get everything worked out as well as he could, with the horrible situation he created. There was no help that 911 could have given, and Dr. Murray knew it.
I also think Michael Jackson was responsible in that he was a hard core drug addict, trying to manipulate getting the drugs how ever he could.
Dr Murray’s mistake was looking at the power and money this association was netting himself.
Jackson’s death was inevitable for ANY DOCTOR that was willing to go to the lengths that Jackson as able to manipulate as he was Dr. Murray.

Jaiden Ryuse   October 12th, 2011 4:51 pm ET

I enjoyed watching the Defense "SWEAT" and "SQUIRM" their way around this witness. Dr. Steinberg was excellent with his testimony. Nailing everything everyone already knows!!! Dr. Murray, irresponsible, negelligent, and most of all GUILTY!!!! End of Trial...

Deb LA   October 12th, 2011 4:54 pm ET

I hope the jurors don't think he's TOO slick and confident. He's clearly a paid expert on a mission. Don't get me wrong — he speaks Common Sense and logic, but people can get turned off to the most irrelevant things like personality and style. It is LA, after all.

kaicye   October 12th, 2011 4:55 pm ET

this doctor i agree is good for the prosecution,but their is still resonable dought.did dr,conrad intentionally kill michael?did dr,conrad panic when he seen michael in distress?

Melissa Hoyle   October 12th, 2011 4:56 pm ET


This is THE witness! This is the state's case "in a nutshell" and I, personally, am so glad to see someone reduce this thing down to the lowest common denominator. How is it arrogant to refuse to change your conclusion? And, how does being attractive make him more believable... or for that matter, less believable, more arrogant, or have lesser or greater credibility?

The bottom line is that Dr. Murray (and his highly lauded attorneys, that certainly didn't act as such when they allowed him to give this taped interview to police) freely said what he said to police investigating Michael Jackson's death. and, in the end, it hardly matters what medication if ANY he gave to Michael Jackson. He LIED to the police...period! Either he was absent from the room approximately two minutes (at which time Mr. Jackson stopped breathing and his pulse accelerated to 122 beats-per-minutes) and he returned to find a non-breathing patient with a "thready pulse" who could have been rescued... OR... he was absent from the room much, much longer, as is the suspicion of most, and returned to find a patient who was too far gone for 911 to make any difference whatsoever. BUT IT CAN'T BE BOTH!

So, did Murray lie about how long he was distracted from his patient, therefore lying about ever detecting a pulse after finding him? Or did he actually find Mr. Jackson as he claimed he did, therefore demonstrating an extreme incompetence a first-year med student wouldn't have exhibited?

yohonna fields   October 12th, 2011 4:57 pm ET

Bravo!!! Dr. Alon Steinberg was RIVETING!!! Praise BeTo God!!! Justice for Mr. Jackson!!!!

Dawn G Heath   October 12th, 2011 5:25 pm ET

All I can say is that being in the medical field as a cardiology tech for almost 20 years, I wish I had had a chance to work for Dr. S. How on target he is, I am so impressed. Not with his looks, and almost all specialists in medicine have a slightly smug attitude, but I believe it comes from confidence and this man is the doctor I would want for my family.

Kim - Santa Fe NM   October 12th, 2011 5:51 pm ET

Dr. Steinberg is absolutely great in explaining medical facts to your average citizen. Coming from a family of physicians – I still ask questions. This case not only depicts greed, but even more bothersome to me is just how incompetent Dr. Conrad Murray is as a physician – well established by Dr. Steinberg. Dr. Murray should not be allowed to practice medicine anywhere in the United States.

sally kiser   October 12th, 2011 5:56 pm ET

if they don't stick it to dr. death in this trial,they'll give him hell in the civil suit! WHEN they find him guilty,put him in prison and let him serve his term.after he gets out,give him a job being the one who gives the dose for lethal least then,he'll get paid for something he knows how to do.send him nationwide,to all the prisons, so he can show everybody he knows how to kill someone!

sally kiser   October 12th, 2011 6:07 pm ET

i want to say thank you to dr.murray.i'm a cancer patient and i have always thought all of doctors had my health in mind and knew what they were doing.NOW,thanks to all of this,it makes me wonder if my doctor is doing the right,for all of us who have had to put their life in someone else's hand.........we say thank you.

Barbara Lancaster   October 12th, 2011 6:21 pm ET

2 questions:

Why did Dr. Murray call PRINCE upstairs to help him? I thought they were trying to shield the children from seeing their father in this "situation". How could PRINCE possibly help his father in that situation? He'd be too emotional!!! And would have a horrible memory to endure for the rest of his life.

Also,why would Dr. Murray leave vials of Propophal(?) on Michaels bedtable? Isn't this a dangerous practice with children in the house? What IF blanket got ahold of this and with his young curiousity drank it and it killed him instead???????

Dr. Murray knew the minute he called 911 he only had "4" minutes to clean up all his sloppy doctoring practices and hide his disgrace.

CICUKbear   October 12th, 2011 7:20 pm ET

Pardon any typos, I've had a long day n forgot to recheck all my spelling n wording b4 submitting.

The "Diprivan" is the trade/brand (name given by the originating manufacturer/creator of a drug) of propofol, which is the generic name for "Diprivan". Like "Motrin" is a trade/brand name n the generic name is ibuprofen.

Also, I put 'as' vs 'then' into my comment: "until the NS/normal saline IV is starts dripping again, "then" it will flow themed (IV push med) thru the IV tubing to the IV site into one's/MJ's body".

AND one major omission.. if one is BREATHING is the initial step of CPR, not pulse and if one has a pulse, there's no need for any chest compressions; as stated done by Dr. Murray. CPR starts w/the ABC's: A=airway, check airway is open n if person is breathing, B=give breaths if one is not breathing and C=circulation, check for pulse; no pulse, give a few more breaths and start chest compressions.
**Very simple to one properly trained**

Fluidizer   October 12th, 2011 7:28 pm ET

Indeed, Dr. Steinberg ate Murray's defense for lunch. If Murray walks after this irrefutable performance, it will forever seal LA as THE place to commit murder and get a way with it.
We are about to find out if the OJ Simpson trial was a fluke, or what we can expect from LA courts forever.

Margaret Lunn   October 12th, 2011 7:29 pm ET

Wow, very compelling testimony from the Heart Dr. on the stand. Shut the door, case over! Dr. Murray guilty!

Frank Tirino   October 12th, 2011 8:00 pm ET

The insomnia disorders the doctors are talking about relate mostly to the general population. What if you were 50 years old, and a WORLDWIDE icon and had performances coming up, the history of a child abuse trial behind you where you may think everyone is questioning your viablity, timeliness, perversion and your own self doubts that your best is behind you...what treatments are for that? He had both of the those testifying doctors available to him for treatment. He had the best in the world available. What if the only treatment is what he got, but Dr. Murray just short sheeted him on service. I think, Michael expected this doctor to do the "right thing" to keep him alive and the Dr. Failed. Basically, MJ decided he was in a class of anxiety no dr. could fix and for 150K a month he could get a dr. to take care of him. Murray for what he was paid could have put his own Intensive Care Unit in MJ's home with the proper equipment and staffing. His greed caused MJ's death. Guilty.

CICUKbear   October 12th, 2011 8:08 pm ET

HINT TO THE PROSECUTORS.. the key is in the clamping off of the maintenance IV, dripping NS into MJ for hydration. This should of never been done, as w/all IV push meds, you need a flowing IV going into one's body for the med to get into one's body. Again, the "acute toxicity" occurred when the NS was restarted n pushed the deadly dose of propofol into MJ, as it wasn't given over 5-10mins but at a much faster rate, which caused MJ to go into a respiratory arrest..geez, this is all too simple n should of been picked up by a specialist by now, unless they have not heard Dr. Murray's interview w/the detectives.. I picked up that comment n what it meant right away; thus a "deadly dose" was given by Dr. Murray, even if it was only 25mg. It was given too fast w/the NS not dripping while the propofol was being pushed in by Dr. Murray. Look at the length of the IV tubing back to that Y-connector port, where the propofol was supposively given!!! FYI: standard IV tubing is 150cm in length or close to 60 inches, which is like a bag of NS to the IV catheter in a vein of a person.

Brandy Ioane   October 12th, 2011 8:12 pm ET

I loved Dr.Steinberg he knew his stuff!,, and got his point across MJ would still be alive if Murry would of called 911, I want to give Murry a million doses of propofol!

Mindy Ross   October 12th, 2011 8:51 pm ET

What difference does it make if MJ took the Propofol himself, Dr. Murray supplied it and plenty of it! He was negligent in ordering so much and having it delivered to a stripper's house, in my opinion. Weren't there 75 vials of Propofol alone? Why would you even get it around someone with addiction problems? What was Dr. Murray thinking besides how he was going to spend that $150,000 per month?

K.Schroeder   October 12th, 2011 9:13 pm ET

Dr. Steinburg was amazing. He was confident, prepared and extremely skilled. I was riveted as I am sure the jury was. Bravo to this man that can stand up to ridiculous defense tactics.

Tammy Mccool   October 13th, 2011 1:34 am ET

Dr. Steinberg... Can assume anything.. but the truth Is we will Never know...

Susan   October 13th, 2011 2:49 am ET

Wow! I think I'm in love! Lucky for him I'm not a beautiful young woman- but merely an "old" widowed nurse who has the utmost respect for intelligence, honesty, decency and common sense which this witness has an abundance of! Even nurses can testify to Murray's glaringly obvious negligence in many areas of the "care" he delivered to Mr. Jackson

Sylvie   October 13th, 2011 7:24 am ET

Dr. Steinberg is an awesome job. Straight to the point. Stayed on the facts. Didn't get influence during cross-examination

judy   October 13th, 2011 9:27 am ET

The entire testamony of Docs has been right on target. You see the difference of doctors who hold a high standard of care to their professional practice of medicine. But this entire thing comes down to how long CM was out of the room going to the bathroom. If we believe he was out of the room for two minutes as CM says then according to the docs MJ would have been asleep since the drug of 25 mg lasts for 15 minutes. So michael would not be capable of medicating himself. No one can't see that.

crystal   October 13th, 2011 9:30 am ET

Finally...a witness that has drawn my attention to the fullest!!! Dr. Alon Steinberg has explained everything with outstanding knowledge and has broken his testimony down to where the average person gains a full understanding of what he is talking about. Dr. Alon, thank you for helping us to get a much better understanding of what has happened and especially by breaking it down the way you did. Flanagan also needs to stop asking everyone who testifies questions about lorazapam, diazapam, midazalan. Didn't we already have expert witnesses (toxicologists), talking about all these drugs. Flanagan needs to stick to the witness as far as what there specialty is and ask questions pertaining to their specialty. Dr. Alon Steinberg is OUTSTANDING!!!

a.provost   October 13th, 2011 9:34 am ET

doctor steinberg was the best he was really prepared for the defence goog job doctor s.

Golfing Granny   October 13th, 2011 9:41 am ET

I was riveted to Dr. Steinberg's testimony. This man knows his stuff and is making the defense look foolish. They better move along with something else today.

Lisa ~ from Delaware   October 13th, 2011 9:57 am ET

These 2 witnesses from yesterday/today (10-12/10-13) in my opinion made sure Conrad Murray will at the very least sit in prison for the next few years! Way to go! Conrad Murray deserves to rot in prison, he should be thankful 4 years is all he's going to get and take it like a man. I hope his cell mate's name is BUBBA and single :)

Stephanie Ruben   October 13th, 2011 11:20 am ET

I am African American (houston/texas) as I was watching Dr. Alon Steinburg, I got excited. I did not want to move from the television. He was on the money about everything. I exactly understood what he was saying regarding propofol and other medical terms. I hate when experts go clean over your head and leave you wondering, "what the hell was they're talking about." This doctor nail it home and I got the message loud and clear. Although Dr. Steinberg is VERY HANDSOME, he displays a sense of confidence, professionalism, and Dr. Steinberg was very knowledgeable of his moral ethics and what the standards of care are suppose to be regarding doctors. Dr. C.M. should have hung his head in shame. Hats off to Dr. Steinberg!!!!!!!

Captain Geraldo   October 13th, 2011 11:21 am ET

If CM had any sense of morality, and took his Hippocratic oath seriously, not only would have he refused to be MJ's Doctor, but he would (should) have called for some kind of drug/sleep intervention. CM was so greedy, that he chose to abandon his clinics, his patients, and staff, in order to care for MJ, of which he did a real bad job of. If he is not convicted of involuntary manslaughter, at least his medical liscense should be revoked forever.

trafelda   October 13th, 2011 11:58 am ET

Dr. Steinberg did a phenomenal job with his STRAIGHT-TO-THE-FACTS testimony. I understood everything he said, only because he was very, very thorough in the way he explained everything. Actually, both doctors gave excellent testimony. I wonder if they will call Paris and Prince to testify? Only wondering because word has it that what Dr. Murray said on the taped interview in regard to the children was not true, according to one Jackson family member; that should be interesting. Also, maybe Dr. Murray should have gotten a signed consent form from Michael before he decided to become an anesthesiologist/sleep specialist wouldn't you think? Not too familiar with the term causation which, according to some, has to be proven in order for justice to prevail, so let me break it down for you in my terms...Dr. Murray CAUSED Michael's death and there you have it...CAUSATION. Keep up the excellent coverage.

cc   October 13th, 2011 12:13 pm ET

I was so engaged with Dr. Alon Steinberg's testimony that when the judge called out for the lunch break, I started DVRing the rest and when the court came back from recess, I noticed Flanagan was not cross examining Dr. Steinberg anymore. I guess Flanagan finally figured out he wasn't going to win or intimidate this witness in anyway, shape or form with his nasty, rude, disrespectful remarks. HE COULD NOT BREAK Dr. Steinberg...he had an answer for everything he was asked without hesitation. Sooo, to make a long story short, it seemed like Flanagan had no further questions in the cross examination. NEXT WITNESS, YOUR HONOR...

Ilene   October 13th, 2011 12:22 pm ET

Dr. Alon Steinberg was fantastic. He spoke confidently and to the point. AND he did not get talked into refuting anything when he was cross-examined by defense attorney Flanagan. All the other witnesses seemed to be intimated by Flanagan and acted unsure of what they were saying. Bravo, Dr. Steinberg!

George   October 13th, 2011 12:24 pm ET

while we are at the nearing of the half way point of the trial like a basket ball game; the prosecution is up by 20 points on the home court, and we'll have to see what "offense" the defense will bring at the beginning of the second half. But the last two witnesses have been formidable foes, and have intimidated the opponents.

Touie   October 13th, 2011 12:39 pm ET

I can't wait till the trial gets to the part (3 months) of Murray's daily routine with Michael. Especially when Michael went to Nashville Tenn weels before his death and was seen being physically abused by Murray.

Samone   October 13th, 2011 12:43 pm ET

I am a pain sufferer (Atypical Trigeminal Neuropathy) & see a pain specialist who is strict & does random urine tests to see if I am taking the right amount & not overtaking more than I am prescribed. I believe that Dr. Murray whether he knew Mr. Jackson was an addict or not should have kept the medicines away from him & should have never given a drug that needed to be monitored. I myself am not an addict per my doctor because I don't take more than I am given nor do I sneak & get more somewhere else. I thank my doctor for keeping me safe for the last 9 years & in the future. Thank you.

Ann La Papa   October 13th, 2011 4:07 pm ET

If as steinberg says, it was so important to call 911, then why wasn't it important enough for him to make notes on what 911 did??? We still don't know how long it took 911 to get to the house, after the call. So how can h say if 911 had been called, they could have saved mj's life??? It takes a emt time to get to the scene, regardless of what occurred before they arrive.I know I've been there.

Sylvie Beaulieu (@Sylmikael)   October 18th, 2011 2:09 pm ET

Dr. Steinberg was awesome. Cool & confident.
He has a strong heart. He is handsome
