It has now been released that Dr. Conrad Murray was Michael Jackson’s personal physician who was caring for Michael before his upcoming concert tour.
Dr. Conrad Murray is a 1989 graduate from the Meharry Medical College School of Medicine.
He is licensed by the State of California as a physician and surgeon practicing in Las Vegas.
The Meharry Medical College is a historically black medical college in Nashville, Tennessee. The medical college is associated with the United Methodist Church.
Dr. Conrad Murray is licensed by the State of Nevada as a cardiologist. A cardiologist if a medical specialty dealing with disorders of the heart.
While Michael Jackson’s medical affairs have always been kept private, or as private as possible, the fact that he had a personal cardiologist obviously begs the question of why he would need a cardiologist.
Especially since heart issues are apparently involved in the cause of death.
While an initial AP investigation reveals that Dr. Murray’s company, Global Cardiovascular Associates, has recently had several adverse court judgments (in a total amount of $400,000) and has at least two other pending lawsuits.
However, none of those actions appear to involve medical care.
There is, however, obviously more to this story, as it is now known that Michael was under the care of not just any general doctor, but a cardiologist.
