Maryland’s Health Department Corrupt then and now Article One Doctor Lois Leonard

By Mark Davis, MD Journalist, Author, Media Consultant

Decades may pass yet corrupt government entities linger. Unaccountable to no one their appointed soldiers march through time with the venomous bite of institutionalized authority destroying the very framework they are supposed to oversee. One such designee was Doctor Lois Leonard. Her horrific death from cancer in 1993 does not excuse her of actions in which she was involved several years earlier.

Doctor Leonard was empowered to cite nursing homes for inadequacies in nursing and physician care by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (now the Maryland Health Department). No medical or surgical case was too complex for Doctor Leonard to critique. Doctor Leonard’s questionable reviews came under scrutiny when she cited the Poplar Manor Nursing Home.

Mark Davis MD purchased the Poplar Manor Nursing Home with 12 investors, most of them Doctors, in August of 1989 after being the facility’s medical director for 8 years. Amongst the investors were two surgeons who provided the surgical care to the home’s residents. They were responsible for a range of treatments including decubitus care. Additionally, the facility enlisted the aid of a neurologist, an endocrinologist, offsite care with a cardiologist, two podiatrists visited regularly, a dermatologist and several other medical consultants. Dr. Leonard believed she was capable of critiquing this collective set of professionals. Antithetically she turned out to be a CHARLATAN, hired by the Maryland Health Department, which was more worried with its public image than the people they claimed to help. Carol Benner, Dr. Leonard’s immediate supervisor, bathed in the glow of the negative reports her Doctor and staff generated, by releasing these reports to the media before the nursing home in question received them, in this case Poplar Manor. Worse Benner’s office was aware Poplar Manor was on a track to lose its certification as a viable nursing facility, yet withheld this information from the prospective owners, though requested by their attorneys prior to sale.

Poplar Manor was under siege by the Health Department’s division of Long-Term care from the day it transferred ownership. Documentary evidence has come into the possession of this journalist displaying clearly Poplar Manor was in the Health Department’s sights for closure. Perhaps the reason Ms. Benner’s office withheld this documentary evidence was the prior ownership included Phillip Greene, a former high ranking official in the Maryland Health Department. Once Mr. Greene received his money for the facility in August of 1989 Dr. Leonard and her team came in full force placing the facility on a 90 track to closure. We can only venture a guess how deep the relationship was between the government officials managing the nursing home review and Mr. Greene.

Maryland Department of Long-Term care refused, several times, to provide Dr. Leonard’s resume. In a case filed with the United States District Court of Maryland, Civil No. MJG-93-1242 Dr. Leonard provided an affidavit to the court. In that affidavit it was clear why her credentials were withheld. Dr. Leonard did not have the abilities or training to survey the physicians she was tasked with reviewing. She did not have the appropriate skills in Internal Medicine or Surgery even for the most basic review. In more restrain tones she was a shill for the Maryland Office of Long-Term care. On her written and or oral word nursing homes, such as Poplar Manor, were forced to close. In the event a physician filed a complaint regarding Dr. Leonard’s dubious reports, more shills would follow behind her, as was the case with Poplar Manor.

Obsessed with closing Poplar Manor Dr. Leonard fabricated several reports claiming the care in the facility was horrific. To justify her baseless reviews two more shills were brought in from University of Maryland to cover her tracks, Drs. Timothy Keay and George Taler. Neither physician had the intensity of training to perform in depth nursing home reviews. Their actions will be discussed in article 2 of this series along with material misrepresentations made by them.

Dr. Lois Leonard’s fraudulent reports display a person who was not qualified to place a band aid on a patient. Yet these reports gave the State of Maryland ammunition to close Poplar Manor Nursing Home after state operatives fleeced its bank accounts, forced the dismissal of nearly 200 employees, displaced 157 nursing home residents and crushed the careers of many including this author. Ironically after the state fed false news reports to the media, in an effort smear its ownership, there were no malpractice suits filed against the home, it’s staff of physicians or this author. The question which this author has the answer to is: Who in the State of Maryland Hierarchy was behind this concerted effort to destroy a viable nursing facility? Follow this series to receive the startling answer.

Special Purpose Examination (SPEX) is an unfair test of a physician’s knowledge. Much to the test’s presentation dates back to your medical school days. When told the test is required for licensure a physician quickly finds the exam’s content is decades removed from the material he or she had previously learned. This complex exam of 336 questions, at last count, covers more than a dozen subjects which may be foreign to many burdened with the task of sitting for discouraging test. Federation of State Medical Boards, the creator of this exam, publishes literature on the SPEX which at best provides a minimal overview of this test. Physicians find out quickly their lack of knowledge when confronting this test. Market literature on SPEX is antiquated and very few people tutor on this test.

Mark Davis, MD provides extensive tutorials to help potential examinees move towards a passing grade. The failure rate is extremely high and the test’s expense is enormous. Dr. Davis’ provides current information on this exam which covers the range of subjects the test taker may encounter. Medical licensing Boards provide little to no help when requesting a licensee to take this unfair exam. The job of the SPEX tutor is to enlighten examinees’ minds and provide appropriate direction to help them retain and or obtain their medical licenses.

Failed SPEX Time for a Special Purpose Exam Tutor

Failed SPEX Time for a Special Purpose Exam Tutor

Failing SPEX sadly has become a common event amongst test takers. The Special Purpose Examination was designed to fail. Contrary to the Federation of States Boards’ information sheets SPEX questions are far from standard medical practice. Most clinicians have narrow medical specialties where they would not encounter the information embedded in this extensive exam. Much of the literature on the market for SPEX is antiquated. These books, flashcards and videos have not kept up with this test’s broad contents. Failing SPEX is not only a stigma to the physician the price to take the exam is extremely expensive.

In my experience as a SPEX tutor I have accumulated a vast array of information that is reflected in current exams. Few can walk into this exam and expect to pass. After hearing the woes of many who failed I began to gather information from former test takers, open sources of information and a multitude of medical references which relate to this unfair and difficult test. As a SPEX tutor I can direct potential examinees in current question content, subject matters and how to prepare for this test in the most expeditious matter.

Science Tutor for Grades K-12 Available for Immediate Mentoring


Many students have a disinterest in science topics taught in current school curriculums. Therefore their grades lag behind and overall performance is affected. As a science tutor who has taught people from the elementary years of school to the postgraduate level many times these students need individual motivation to bring their grades up and their interest in science even higher. My job as a general science tutor is to clarify current work students are learning in school and enhance their abilities to absorb more information.

Maryland Saturated with Crime Drugs and Corruption

Geographically Maryland’s beauty has few competitors. Behind this topographical treasure lies a reckless government which has driven this state into the desperate times it finds itself. Opioid use has risen exponentially in the last decade. Prescribed like candy by various physician controlled entities few states have more deaths from this class of drugs than Maryland. Grim statistics cannot be hidden by the pleasant smiles of corrupt politicians. Several thousand went to their graves last year as our state representatives carried on business as usual. As legislative efforts failed in Annapolis to rein in this crisis emergency rooms could not find enough body bags to manage the overflow. With the approval of Marijuana this gateway drug will bring health facilities to their knees.

Legalizing Marijuana based on quasi research displaying this substance has medicinal value displays how moronic the political class is in this corrupt state. Worse outlets to sell this chemical garbage were given over to a group of well- connected political elitists. This entitled class was provided with dispensing licenses utilizing the excuse they will bring to market a purer product than those who have not coughed up donations to their campaigns. As I have advised physicians on the radio and in my articles Maryland Marijuana laws are a minefield for physicians. Liability will be placed on the heads of physicians once accidents, deaths and criminality related to this drug occur. As of this writing most Maryland physicians are hesitant to prescribe this Class One drug.

Maryland’s newest problem is a synthetic version of Marijuana which has been introduced into the state. Laced with poison, that causes a person to bleed profusely, numerous hospitalizations have been reported around state. As usual the most vulnerable are affected. Adding to this problem is the vast number of people dying from alcohol, drugs exclusive of opioids and chemicals favored by the addicted class, as reflected in the daily emergency room census of each acute care facility. Kudos to acute care health personnel who have done a magnificent job in the face of great odds inflicted on them by wayward politicians, a medical board that does not properly oversee its physician hoard and a pharmaceutical industry that pumps this crap into the state.

In a circuitous way many profit by the massive drug and alcohol problem left uncontrolled by a government that supports this catastrophe. A vast social-welfare system would be undercut if these addicting chemicals were to leave the scene. No doubt there are pockets full of money that do not want Maryland cured of these ills. Therefore politicians discuss the drug problem openly yet few move to correct it. Corruption is solidly embedded in Annapolis and the administrative entities it empowers. The answer is simple. Until we remove the scum who sit on the high seats in Maryland deaths will continue to mount and the next one could be one of our loved ones.

Contacted by many physicians who have failed the Special Purpose Examination (SPEX) Dr. Mark Davis has helped them direct their studies to achieve a passing grade. The test is a cheat in the sense that much of the information contained in its questions are “not” drawn from day to day practice or current literature. In fact many questions would require a physician to consult their medical school notes from decades ago. SPEX literature on the market is antiquated, many times inapplicable to the current exam and specious in nature. Dr. Davis will review current questions both in content and format, direct the examinee in his/her studies and delve deep into the tests subject matter. Medical Boards do not help examinees prepare for this difficult exam. Federation of State Medical Boards, the originator of the SPEX, is also delinquent in this area. Studying with Dr. Davis is productive, bears fruit and brings the medical license you seek that much closer.

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.
