Dr. Conrad Murray is officially back in practice. The central figure in Michael Jackson’s homicide investigation is now practicing back at the Houston Clinic.
“He hasn’t lost a patient in Houston or Las Vegas,” Murray’s spokeswoman Miranda Sevick told ABCNews.com. “He’s just thrilled to be back. The greatest joy of his life is working as a doctor. After being in exile and being able to hug his patients and shake their hands, he’s never been so rejuvenated. He looks relaxed and happy.”
“He had been hiding in his home in Las Vegas, but he needs to earn a living,” Murray’s lawyer Edward Chernoff told the Houston Chronicle. “He’s under siege from creditors, has enormous legal fees and doesn’t know whether he’ll be able to support his family.”
Despite the ongoing Michael Jackson investigation, Dr. Conrad Murray still holds a medical license to practice.
“The board does have the right to temporarily suspend physicians pending an investigation if they are believed to present “imminent danger to the public or their patients,” Wiggins said. “It would not appear that Dr. Murray‘s ability to practice medicine is impaired at this point.’”
