MARYLAND PREFERS FOREIGN PHYSICIANS OVER THEIR AMERICAN COUNTERPARTS

Maryland prefers Foreign Physicians over their American Trained Counterparts

Forty thousand strong Maryland’s physicians are under the purview of a corrupt medical board named the Maryland Board of Physicians. This corrupt Maryland state entity exuberantly embraces foreign physicians over those trained in American Medical Schools. Many American physicians who considered practicing medicine in Maryland have sought refuge in other state jurisdictions because of the harsh environment established by this very unprincipled Board. Both in licensing and sanctions most foreign physicians brought before this unscrupulous and dishonest Board of Physicians are either accepted quickly into flock or sanctioned in the most minimal way. Those who sit on this Board have been blinded by lawyers who work for this entity and or by lawyers from the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. Every time a physician is sanctioned to maximum, that is a medical license revocation, the Board administrators put another notch in their proverbial noose. The evidence is obvious if you review those sanctioned each year. American trained physicians’ cases are taken into court more frequently that their foreign counterparts. Why? Because this unsaintly entity bends the rules for foreign physicians and those of invigorated cultures.

Political correctness has been taken to the extreme. Recent contact I had with the Maryland legislature and other state administrative entities display very little oversight is given to this so called independent Board. The legislative committee I contacted and other Maryland state departments believe this Board is pure and should go untouched by them. Corruption has entered the fray in the Maryland Board of Physicians processes and procedures. Damage to physicians’ reputation, families and more are the outcome of false sanctions initiated again doctors. Many physicians have suffered by the hands of this corrupt and dishonest entity. Please review some of the articles on Medicalboardusa.com and read for yourself how one physician was mercilessly treated by Maryland’s Board of Physicians.

Blighted Corrupt and a Regulatory Nightmare Maryland has seen better days

 

Blighted Corrupt and a Regulatory Nightmare Maryland has seen better days

 

 

 

Maryland is a distressed state. Submerged in crime, drugs, onerous taxes and legislated efforts to control every action of its population, the Old Line State needs realignment. Baltimore, Maryland’s largest City, has the unique distinction of having the most murders in the country, based on population size. Opioids deaths reach into the thousands with the rate continuing to rise. Recently legislated efforts to put Marijuana in the hands of a large segment of the populace will only add to the addiction crisis. To complete the State’s nightmare the government, along with its Governor who ran on a Republican platform yet acts like a Democrat, are choking businesses with onerous taxes and socialistic style legislation. Maryland is a mess. Every segment of the State needs mending. The quick answer to Maryland’s problems is to blame the federal government and President Trump. Yet, the true nature of Maryland’s problems, are home grown. They are caused by feckless politicians who ignore their decompensating state to keep the flood of entitlements flowing.  Taxes, crime and bad legislation are on the increase as Maryland victimizes its businesses to keep the cash streaming into State coffers.

 

 

 

Nobility is not a trait of Maryland administrative entities. Honor left these cauldrons of deceit decades ago. Managed by political appointees merit has left the stage leaving behind an obnoxious stench of social conformity. Medical care is has suffered throughout the Maryland by an influx of lesser trained foreign physicians. Worse the Maryland Board of Physicians is managed similar to the Politburo of the old Soviet Union whose Executive head is nothing less than deranged in actions and words. Along with a corrupt Medical Board the State Government is pushing to keep Obamacare alive by levying high fees on insurance companies to assure a free ride for the entitlement crowd. Paradoxically those fees will be passed down to those of us who already pay extremely high insurance rates. For the illicit entries into this country Maryland has a gift for you. Once you acquire your illegal driver’s license the State intends to automatically register you to vote in order to keep the Democrats in power for eternity plus a week. Maryland’s dishonest government, from border to border, is a liberal’s dream and a nightmare for private businesses and those who work outside the government. In the event you are considering a move to this state think twice and see a Psychiatrist.  Maryland has nothing to offer except left wing courts, untenable crime, outrageous taxes and oppressive regulations that keep your pockets thin while fattening those of politicians and their political appointees. Remember this reporter told you so.

Maryland Board of Physicians Deceptive Unscrupulous and Dishonest

 

Maryland Board of Physicians Deceptive Unscrupulous and Dishonest

 

 

 

Shadows of Soviet style judicial behavior have fallen once again on the corrupt Maryland Board of Physicians. Hiding behind its shield of legal immunity this Soviet era administrative authority destroys physicians’ careers without verifying the essence of the charges against their intended targets. Ironically the old maxim first we will give him a fair trial and then we will hang him applies here. In this case the trial was biased and the hanging predetermined. The level of corruption is so deep even the author of this piece has difficulty getting his mind around the following events.

 

 

 

In good faith the author filed a multiple page application with the Maryland Board of Physicians, in the latter half of 2016, for medical license reinstatement. The reinstatement document is fraught with requests for private information which arguably is none of this Board’s concern. Nevertheless the application was filed. On the final page a certification must be signed with several stipulations. Nowhere on this document does it state a third party, off the premises and outside the Board’s purview, will be sent this very private document to review. The Board’s administrative staff sent this application for reinstatement to the Attorney General’s Office without the applicant’s knowledge or written/oral consent. To make matters worse this document was given over Robert Gilbert Esq., who is part of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office, a person the applicant had sued twice in the past. Mr. Gilbert’s took it upon himself to exact his own brand of vengeful justice when he wrote two false reports to the Board in an effort to block the applicant’s reinstatement.

 

 

 

Mr. Gilbert’s reports contained erroneous, false and outright fabricated statements concerning the applicant, which the Board made no attempt to verify. Mr. Gilbert’s statements were unfounded and without merit. This corrupt Board went so far to have ex parte contact with Mr. Gilbert which displays the level of collusion between these two parties. In a Public Information Act (PIA) request the Board’s legal counsel and its administrative minions denied the existence of a transcript or other records of the December 21, 2016 reinstatement hearing. The cover up is intense to protect themselves from their fraudulent series of actions against Mark Davis, MD. Worse, a letter from this Board, in answer to the applicant’s PIA request, challenges him to go to court to obtain the documents for which he petitioned this corrupt Maryland State administrative entity. The Board’s counsel is well aware the immunity shield will be claimed in court to protect themselves from their illicit actions. A secondary technique will be employed stating information requested by the petitioner is privileged. Maryland’s left wing Circuit and Appellate courts are inclined to decide in favor of the Board of Physicians even when the information they send to a requesting party is patently false. In my own case and dozens of other physicians who had to tolerate the Board’s corrupt activities I watched in horror as Maryland State Courts blindly fell on the sword for this unethical, dishonest and patently unscrupulous agency.

 

 

 

 

 

Chief Executive of this abusive agency is not a physician. She is political appointee with a bankrupt mind and a vicious pen. Releasing a final opinion to the author, based on nothing more than hearsay and innuendo, this mentally destitute woman displayed why she needs to be shown the door. In this final opinion the rhetoric is so toxic I am embarrassed to release it in this first in a series of articles. Nevertheless the author is being framed as the worst physician on the planet and the lowest of human beings. After coming to Maryland on a Public Health scholarship and never having one penny paid out against him in a malpractice claim in forty years this physician became a target of an errant Board which denied him every level of due process. Under the tutelage of this offensive woman the Board has turned a blind eye to the toxins being spewed into Marylanders by so-called pain clinics. In the event a physician is from certain culture or works for a favored University the Board gives him/her a tap on the wrist if a complaint filed against them. With approximately 40,000 licenses under the auspices of the Maryland Board of Physicians a few hundred physicians’ careers destroyed by this entity are only considered collateral damage.

 

 

 

The Maryland Board of Physicians needs new leadership. Similar to a gunslinger   the Board’s hierarchy measures it successes in the number of physicians it can bring down. All physicians who are called before this massively corrupt Board should never ever appear there unless they have “counsel” well informed on the legal chicanery the Board’s Attorney General attack dogs utilize to destroy their careers. In the next article we will discuss who exactly are the miscreants perpetrating fraudulent practices on physicians and denying them due process.

Public Information Request to the Maryland Board of Physicians Drop Dead

Public Information Request to the Maryland Board of Physicians Drop Dead

Marylander’s have lost control of their government. Administrative agencies, exemplified by the Maryland Board of Physicians, hide behind carefully crafted regulations enabling these public entities to keep their perversions and malicious behaviors hidden from the public. Reminiscent of pre Glasnost days, before the Soviet empire tumbled, physicians requesting information on hearings and administrative assaults from this corrupt entity, meet a stone wall when making a Public Information Access Request. Citing lawyer-client privilege, immunity, exemptions from state law and more the Board of Physicians disables physicians’ lives, at will, then jumps behind a veil of secrecy. Most recently this physician requested records from the Board of Physicians, for a bogus hearing he participated in during the month of December in 2016, the reply in legalese: Drop Dead.

Lawyers employed by Maryland Attorney General’s Office run cover for Board of Physicians’ members. To protect themselves the Medical Board engages these lawyers to perform two tasks: First, prosecute the maximum number of physicians they can to keep their sanction numbers high and secondly to protect themselves when physicians seek redress from their illicit actions. When a Maryland physician’s career is injured or terminated by the corrupt Board of Physicians, this administrative entity encourages doctors to take them to court. Why? In the greatest majority of cases Maryland’s left leaning courts side with their administrative departments, no matter where the facts fall. This Board cares little about facts only results. A few physicians thrown under the proverbial rug, who cares.

The Soviet Union has been gone for nearly 3 decades, yet its corrupt Star Chamber type tactics still survive. Maryland has adopted these processes within the structure of its regulations to suppress any rebuke it receives from a citizen. The laws of Maryland give preferences to some while others meet blunt force authoritarianism. Maryland’s complex legal system buries many. Some, like myself, just refuse to roll over and play dead. The next chapter will play out soon on a legal battlefield.

Strange Case of Doctor Nikita Levy and the Maryland Board of Physicians Lack of Response

Strange Case of Doctor Nikita Levy and the Maryland Board of Physicians lack of Response

Doctor Nikita Levy, an Ob-gyn physician, purportedly photographed the vulnerable parts of thousands of women before his secret was outed in February 2013. A savvy John Hopkins Hospital employee noticed that Dr. Levy had a small device on his person resembling a camera. Soon after this revelation the unnamed employee reported Dr. Levy to Hopkins hierarchy who subsequently fired him. Investigations displayed Dr. Levy had a large cache of photos in his personal possession which allegedly contained those of both adult females and children. Dr. Levy was an employee of Hopkins for more than 2 decades. Indications are his photo spree started on or about 2005. There is no history of outrageous medical activity prior to this time.

Within 2 weeks of his disengagement from Hopkins Dr. Levy committed suicide reportedly by suffocation utilizing Helium as a catalyst to expedite his death. The horror to his family and the patients affected is insurmountable. In the month leading up to this article over 8,000 checks were mailed to Dr. Levy’s patients as part of a 190 million dollar malpractice settlement. Media sources note lawyers received 32 million of this amount. This case has more questions than answers.

1) Why didn’t the Maryland Board of Physicians suspend Dr. Levy’s medical license under an emergency order immediately upon knowing the circumstances of this case? This is within their power
2) Eight thousand women made claim to funds in the malpractice financial pool. Is the public supposed to believe not one of these women suspected Dr. Levy’s deviance during their exams?
3) Doctor Levy was exposed to many John Hopkin’s employees during his tenure at this noteworthy institution. Only one employee noticed his deviance with a camera device. This is a stretch of credibility.
4) Worse is the public to believe not one patient of the 8,000 complained to Hopkin’s hierarchy from 2005 until 2013 concerning the odd behavior of Dr. Levy.
5) Did the Maryland Board of Physicians treat this case with special deference because Dr. Levy worked for Hopkins? Did Dr. Levy receive special treatment from the medical board for other reasons?
6) Since Dr. Levy was not cited by the medical board prior to his untimely death his record with the Medical Board will never reflect the facts of this case and the malpractice settlement. Why?
7) What did Hopkins know about Dr. Levy prior to its employee discovering his camera on or about February 4th 2013?

Maryland Board of Physicians is managed by lawyers. There appears to be purposeful intent on their part to look the other way in this case. Dr. Levy, as reported by local media, continued to have an active medical license at the time of his death. If true the Maryland Board of Physicians is hiding the truth of a former licensee by their silence. The final question is: Why?

Maryland Board of Physicians from Bad to Worse

 

Maryland Board of Physicians: from Bad to Worse

 

 

 

Maryland Board of Physicians has touched many lives, unfortunately not in a positive manner. Coincident with several articles I wrote for the Baltimore Examiner, detailing the unscrupulous nature of this Board, the Maryland Legislature released a derogatory report against this entity in 2011. This report was entitled, Sunset Review: Evaluation of the State Board of Physicians and Related Health Advisory Committees. Embodied in its pages was supposed to be the framework from which the Board would improve its functions and effectuate processes that were honest and consistent with its written regulatory structure. Instead the Board went in another direction. In a series of deceptive reports to the Maryland Legislature over the years following the release of the Sunset Review the Board omitted its failures exemplifying a false front as stated in this article. Managed by lawyers, from the top down, due process has been cast into the fire as this Board cherry picks which laws it will follow.

 

 

 

Medical Boards have come under increasing scrutiny over the last decade. Both the Texas and Arizona Boards have assaulted physicians in merciless manners resulting in loss of licensure for hundreds of physicians who did nothing more than have an MD after their names. State Legislatures woke up and cleansed the slate of characters that managed these administrative entities. Maryland Board’s incessant misuse of standards of care to entrap physicians is a tragedy that needs correction too. In the author’s case the Maryland Board spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and an entire decade to rid the state of this physician over paper compliance issues. Time has come for the Maryland Legislature to investigate this corrupt entity and rid the Board of it’s over dependence on lawyers.

 

 

 

Maryland’s Legislature has taken a step back in its oversight of the Maryland Board of Physicians. Last time I looked physicians were also citizens of the state. Hence they deserved certain due process rights. Appearance of due process is not due process. The Board along with its attack dog the Attorney General’s Office have a routine they follow to keep physicians from their full rights. Through convoluted legalese physicians have had a rough time defending themselves in administrative hearings. The Board’s attorneys have developed strategies to keep physicians from presenting expert witnesses, exculpatory evidence and patient testimony. Case number DHMH SBP-71-07-05227 Mark Davis MD hearing before an administrative court exposes the outright suppression of a physician’s right to defend himself appropriately. The transcript should be read by any physician forced to participate in this Soviet style hearing before a state appointed judge.

 

 

 

With the failure of the Nikita Levy case, the failure to oversee excessive opioid prescribing and the misuse to standards of care to target certain physicians the Maryland Legislature should be compelled to take an independent review of the Board. This should be a review by people who are not friends or associates of the Board as the most recent review by its University connections. In a future article we will review why the Maryland Board of Physicians allowed Nikita Levy case to be hidden from view until it spilled over into the media.
