Maryland Board of Physicians
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.
