Prime Example tells the story of the State of New York Department of Health versus Warren M Levin, MD. In the late 1980s the Commissioner of Health of New York was a very brilliant and morbidly depressed individual who suddenly got the idea to rid the state of all of those alternative doctors! He chose Warren Levin, a board-certified family doctor and the son of a doctor. Dr. Levin's practice had never received a complaint from any patient and he had never been sued on the day that the state served a small telephone book sized set of charges against him. Basically, they asserted that everything he did from morning till night in every day of his practice was unprofessional conduct. The state brought in a very, very zealous witness who had an MD and a JD and was a self-professed quack buster. He spent much of his time testifying against physicians and testified before many government bodies including the U.S. Congress where he specifically mentioned Dr. Levin as a quack on several occasions.
