2016: the real story

2016: the real story

 

Expectations fell short when I viewed the recently released movie 2016, Obama’s America. Ninety percent of its themes and premises detailed a period prior to 2012. Obama’s second assault on America would look much different than discussed at the end of this pseudo-documentary. Every institution and tradition that made America strong would be diminished to a point where America mirrors the country of Obama’s origins. America’s Military, once capable of managing wars on multiple continents, has been reduced to a shadow of its former size. Left vulnerable to our enemies, Obama grants control of many government functions to the United Nations, further reducing our capacity for self-defense. Medical care is no long on demand, instead something as minor as a cold requires consent from a functionary sitting in the heart of District of Columbia. Masses of people die because access to diagnostics and therapeutics has been limited to pay for the monstrosity called Obamacare. Initial cost estimates less than a trillion dollars, as misrepresented by the President, now totaled ten trillion. Inflation once a respectable 2% now runs over 10% a year with unemployment reaching a consistent 15%. Obama’s intention to reduce our nuclear arsenal to zero is finally realized as a dozen countries continue produce more weapons. Twelve blue states seek bankruptcy protection because union thugs and liberal government operatives raided treasuries to pay for extravagances they could not afford. Obama still searches to bring unemployment down with his 5th stimulus to nowhere. Government employees earn two to three times their private counterparts under Obama’s last term. Continuing his promises to La Raza, Obama has opened the southern border allowing free movements between Mexico and the United States. Eric Holder continues in office with a trail of personal criminality that continues to mount against him. Obama’s czars have come out in the open releasing edict after edict pushing the country further into the economic doldrums. Redistribution of wealth continues at a record pace where the indolent and lazy receive more money that those who foot the bills. This enumeration only touches upon the detriment Obama will bring in a second term. Economic Armageddon, a demilitarized America, rampant union thuggery, a centralized medical system that expedites patients into the next world,  open borders, unprecedented gun control, food and energy shortages and much more. This is Obama’s America not the one projected in the movie. A vote for Obama is a vote for the latter. Vote right in 2012 or don’t vote at all. Mark Davis MD author of Demons of Democracy.

Demons of Democracy: the book lawyers hate

 

Acquisition of legal services is as close as your yellow pages. Thousands of advertisements by suited individuals claiming expertise in a wide variety of subjects are audaciously portrayed as saviors in this resource. Yet their portrayals as self-redeemers contain an underlying deception that jumps off the page when you review the gamut of expertise presented. The enumeration of qualifications is long and very untrustworthy even to the superficial observer. Demons of Democracy exposes that most of these ads are pure fiction and those behind them have minimal abilities to perform the tasks presented. More than a million lawyers roam the range of America’s legal landscape starving for the next case. Law schools, except for a few, do not prepare the student for the realities of 21st century America. Their minds are entrenched with basic subject matter, yet they are never provided the depth of training they will misrepresent to the public a few years later. Would you trust your life savings to someone with a 3 credit course in estate planning or allow someone with a 2 credit course in tax preparation to manage your portfolio of stocks? The answer to both of these questions would be no if you knew better. Unfortunately lawyers mislead people to believe they have a level of erudition which is not borne out by their education, training or experience. Most are burnt out social science majors who had no idea where to plant their feet after college. Law school or driving a cab was the logical alternatives for these individuals. Demons of Democracy discusses the profound ignorance of many who wear the badge as a member of a once esteemed profession. Demons examines the methodologies that are employed by tens of thousands of reprobates in suits to undermine every aspect of American culture and the institutions that made it strong. This creative resource notes that most functions performed by lawyers in the states are provided by government functionaries in other countries at pennies on the dollar. Our society is most noteworthy for criminalizing normal human behaviors by an overreaching governmental structure that lauds itself on jailing as many people as possible. Who benefits most, that’s right your corner lawyer. Demons of Democracy provides the rationale why lawyers should not manage complex organizational structures such as the Executive branch of our federal bureaucracy, just look at the present results. This is the last book lawyers would recommend, but the first one that should be on your reading list.

Stealing a medical license: Maryland style

Stealing a medical license: Maryland style

 

Physicians licensed in Maryland are subjected to the whims of a medical board that is politically appointed and run end to end by attorneys. Colleagues in other states are in disbelief when they learn that a lawyer not a physician is the executive director of this entity. They are even more perplexed that lawyers manage the compliance division and other sections of this administrative authority. Most astounding to them is 8 out of 21 members of this authority are “not” physicians. Maryland Board of Physicians was established to have special expertise in the medical domain. Yet its present construction is far from that initial format. Physicians no longer have to commit a medical mistake or series of them to be charged with an offense under the Medical Practices Act. Physicians can have their licenses revoked based on hearsay, false evidence against them, junk science, fallacious expert medical record reviews or sundry actions that do not pass the sniff test. An assault against Mark Davis MD exemplifies the depths this board would take to have his licensed pulled. In June of 2002 a subpoena for medical records arrived at this physician’s office. Four months later a note arrives from an “unknown reviewer” asking him to make several changes in his practice style. Since all procedures and paper formats had previously been approved by the authority sending the letter this physician questioned the unknown reviewer why the changes should be done when they were not justified. No answer came forth. One month later this Physician was invited to a clinical meeting with three other physicians, none of whom were initiated in the specific practice type of this author. This unfriendly encounter was further deprecated by the three member panel failing to be given documents sent to them by this physician.  The perpetrator of that act was none other than the lawyer who headed the compliance division. Forty eight months from the day of the subpoena a charging document that should have never have been drawn had the name of Ira Kaplan MD and a 2nd physician written across the title page. Dr. Kaplan, who is protected by peer review regulatory laws, was chosen as an expert medical record reviewer when he had no expertise in the specific subject contained in the charges. Though the board had forty months to prepare a case, this physician was given 3.5 months with two intervening holidays to prepare his case. The medical board through its Attorney General’s representative had no intention of allowing the truth to come forth. He used every legal trick at his disposal to block defendant witnesses from testifying, defendant legal briefs to be entered as evidence and other exculpatory documents from being brought before this administrative review. Worse he obstructed the testimony of a physician who worked for the medical board and enthusiastically wanted to testify on this author’s behalf. This Soviet style review had all its elements in favor of the Board of Physicians yet the administrative judge still found in the most part for this physician. He went so far as disregarding the testimony and report of one of the state appointed physicians and submerged most of the 2nd physicians report and testimony. The Board in a very vindictive and baseless manner reversed the court’s findings even though they had not heard the case which involved over four days of hearings before a reviewing judge who they requested. The judicial system treats physicians like dirt, especially the Appellate division. These courts are very friendly to Maryland administrative authorities because they are paid by the same pocket. A recent article entitled “Maryland Board of Physicians: corruption or business as usual” provides more details of the events at the Appellate level. You might as well be in China or Russia because Maryland does not believe in justice. This State only knows how to take money from the worker and hand it to the deadbeat. Maryland’s Attorney General’s Office debased itself in this case to bring this false action to fruition.  Members of the Board of Physicians knew or should have known the case involving Mark Davis MD was a fraudulent conception from end to end. The Maryland Legislature for the second time has fallen asleep at the wheel when profound fraud is being perpetrated directly under their proverbial noses. To right this wrong the Board should reverse their decision, not follow the Harford Court mandate that they pushed for and apologize to the thousands of patients they have screwed for the second time in four years. In the event any of the media has the cojones to discuss this interesting and vindictive assault on this physician please contact me. To my thousands of patients thank you for your support. platmd@gmail.com Mark Davis MD, President of Healthnets Review Services

Maryland Board of Physicians: corruption or business as usual

Maryland Board of Physicians: corruption or business as usual

 

Imagine a State administrative authority that would spend hundreds of thousands of your hard earned tax dollars to chase a physician through the “judicial system for over a decade for paper compliance issues concerning five medical records, then you are imagining the Maryland Board of Physicians. A vindictive non-transparent process by this board was initiated on or about June of 2002 that culminated in a soviet style review with fake witnesses, suppression of data, false standards of care and a legal system starving to bring physicians to their knees culminated in a medical license revocation affecting four thousand patients. In the time it takes to sign a cease practice order these patients were bereft of their physician, many on class four diet pharmaceuticals, forcing this writer to abandon them in a single afternoon. Maryland government has a long history of corruption, now it has permeated the Board of Physicians. Lying and deception are their weapons of choice enabled by an Appellate Court system friendly to their every request. Maryland physicians face a very difficult road in the State’s judicial system even when the facts are in their favor. The case of this writer is especially noteworthy for the vicious way it was instituted and the illicit manner in which it was carried out. Maryland Board of Physicians obstructed this writer from defending himself at the Office of Administrative Hearings. Including but not limited to inhibiting the presentation of defendant expert witnesses, blocking the inclusion of exculpatory evidence and stifling the defendant’s presentation by the most extraordinary means possible. The state presented two physician witnesses. One was quickly discredited by the judge and the other witness was diminished by his own words. Utilization of the diet pharmaceutical Phentermine was the core issue. Maryland has an unusual standard to allow witnesses to be considered experts in a subject before a judicial panel. Dr. Ira Kaplan was allowed to testify as an expert on the drug Phentermine even though he had minimal exposure to the drug in his practice (claimed he used less than five times), had no specific education in the drug, never wrote any papers on the subject and never taught anyone on its structure or function. This was the only person the Maryland Board of Physicians would rely on this revoke a medical license. The Court never placed him under oath and he was free to lie and deceive per his coaching from the Board’s attorney. Administrative judges usually are partial to state boards, not in this case. Though two physicians must agree that a fellow physician was acting outside the standard of care, the state witnesses had opposing views. Under that scenario a third physician by “law” must reconcile the differences between them, no other doctor was brought into the case. Charges should never have been brought because of this conflict. The Administrative judge to his credit noted the anomalies in this case and found in the most part for this physician. Fake standards of care, specious expert witnesses and a dazzling display of legal tricks were utilized to stop this physician from practicing. Maryland Board of Physician’s politically appointed board, 40% of whom are not physicians out its 21 members, reversed the decision. The stench of a vindictive act was all over their findings because Board membership was acting outside their mandate and the law to remove a legitimately licensed physician from practice (see Maryland Legislature Report November 2011 concerning the Board’s illicit activities). A Harford County Circuit Court Judge questioned the Board’s activities in this case and found for this writer reversing the revocation. The Board’s last minute appeal to the Appellate division is one of the most interesting aspects of this case.

     Court of Special Appeals’ judges work as a triad that is in groups of three. Legal briefs are submitted by both sides in regards to a deficit in the findings of a lower Court perceived by either party. New information is not supposed to be entered except for clarification purposes. In this case the Board was the entity who was appealing the opinion of the lower court. The Lawyers representing the Board from the Attorney General’s Office deliberately obfuscated the evidence they presented, in two telephone size volumes.  Designed to confuse the most initiated mind in the law, the Board was successful in that regard. Earlier reference to three physician mode of review established by law in 2003 was completely abrogated by the triad. Instead they legislated from the bench allowing only one reviewer’s word to be sufficient to establish a basis for a medical license revocation. Precedent also established in this case allows any physician to represent themselves as a specialist even if they have only read an article on the subject they are to testify, as did Dr. Ira Kaplan. Worse, the court disregarded dozens of exculpatory items to give the board a win with an opinion so biased that Stalin would be smiling. The author now faces a mandate from this court to relinquish his licensed that is based on nebulous facts from a rogue board run end to end by attorneys. Physicians in Maryland must face a completely corrupt review process and in the end spend themselves into oblivion to defend charges before a Court system that is extremely biased against them. This case is not unique, yet its stench permeates the very halls where it originated. Physicians in the named university hospitals get a pass by the Board when the tides turn against them. It will be interesting to follow the medical board’s actions against the physicians who were hammered in two recent malpractice cases found for the plaintiffs, one payout is potentially for more than fifty million. The Maryland Legislature must become involved in the Board of Physician’s processes because this administrative entity is being used to silence physicians who are outspoken and not on the politically correct side of the argument. Mark Davis MD, President of Healthnets Review Services. Look for the national media to follow concerning this case.
