It is amazing nobody is bringing this up: Celebrity doctor Dr. Robert Huizenga is just as responsible for the HIV cover-up as Charlie himself! A Harvard graduate, Mr. Huizenga isn't stupid, but how could he be so cavalier? He implicated himself as an enabler in Charlie's web of deception in The Today Show interview.
This applies to reporting all new cases of HIV infection, it doesn't matter if a physician diagnosis it or prescribes medication: It is a requirement you report your HIV+ patient by name to the health department.
Here is the California law…
H&S Code Section 121022(a) requires health care providers and clinical laboratories to report HIV infection by patient name to the local health officer, and mandates local health officers to report unduplicated HIV cases by patient name to CDPH. CCR, Title 17, Sections 2641.5-2643.20 provide specificity for reporting cases of HIV – https://www.cdph.ca.gov/programs/aids/Documents/RPT2010_01HIVAIDSLaws2009.pdf
I know from first-hand experience.
In my first post, Charlie Sheen told Girl #1, “Don't worry, I will make an appointment with my doctor” when she was understandably distressed by posthumously discovering his HIV+ condition. Guess who Sheen's the doctor was?
Dr. Robert Huizenga.
Why did Sheen insist she go his personal doctor; rather than a random clinic? If tested positive, she wouldn't be reported to the Health Department and throw a monkey wrench in Sheen's playboy lifestyle!
That is how much of a sociopath Charlie is!
A celebrity doctor isn't nearly as interesting to the tabloid media an “A-list actor”, but you cannot ignore the fact this man broke his Hippocratic Oath by failing to report a life threatening infection.
In closing, here is another interesting fact about Dr. Robert Huizenga. He was called as a witness for the defense in the OJ Trials in 1995.
More proof, if you lay down with dogs, you wake up with fleas.
It's been one hell of a week,
