Of even more power, Dr. Corvin says the entire incident could have and should have been avoided. Stewart presented himself to his longtime doctors office two days before the shooting in a nervous state, crying and saying, "I don't want to hurt anyone."
Corvin said that, instead of doing a safety assessment, nurse practitioner Vonda Reeves let him leave her office and gave Stewart two medications: the antidepressant Lexapro and the anti-anxiety drug Xanax, which likely made his agitation and his anxiety worse.
"This was grossly inadequate. It was malpractice. Period," Corvin said.
