A man known as "Dr. Mike" in Edmond, Oklahoma is being questioned
by the community about the ingredients of what he calls a "Jesus shot."
The full name of "Dr. Mike" is John Michael Lonergan, and in 2005 he had his license to practice medicine revoked
in Ohio after he was convicted of eight felony counts of tax evasion, mail fraud and health care fraud. After he was released from prison, "Dr. Mike" moved to Oklahoma, which granted him a license to practice medicine on a provisional, supervised basis.
According to News 9
, "Dr. Mike" has been injecting local residents with something he calls the "Jesus shot," which allegedly cures all pain for life. At his clinic, he has been charging people $300 per "miracle injection."
Last month, one Oklahoma resident curious about "Dr. Mike" posted
about him in a forum
devoted to "outing people who falsely claim military service."
"Nobody knows anything about this guy," she wrote, "but he claims that he is a Former Special Forces Doctor and him and another Special Forces Doctor developed a serum for the military called Jesus Juice and it has been used in the military for years and it cures any ailment."
