Lawyer for Tiger Woods Doc Asserts Physician’s Innocence

A lawyer for Dr. Anthony Galea, who has treated Tiger Woods, says the physician is innocent of allegations of wrongdoing.

A Canadian probe into the doctor could result in charges by this Friday, on which date the doctor will face his first court appearance. The lawyer said in a press conference Tuesday that the Canadian charges, if filed, are expected to be related to conspiracy, the Customs Act and the Food and Drug Act. The lawyer said that an assistant for the doctor was stopped on the U.S.-Canadian border, which ended up triggering an investigation of Galea.

The lawyer said that while a small amount of Human Growth Hormone was confiscated, it was for the doctor's own personal use: "There was a very, very small amount of HGH and it was only for him," the lawyer said. He explained that Galea believes in the therapeutic use of steroids in non-competing aged 40-plus adults, claiming that it enhances general health and lengthens lives.
