POLITICIZATION OF THE MARYLAND BOARD OF PHYSICIANS

 

Politicization of the Maryland Board of Physicians

 

 

 

Few administrative authorities in Maryland are as corrupt as the State’s Board of Physicians. Delegitimized by a cooperative effort with the State’s Attorney General’s Office physician licensing is mere numbers game to them. Utilizing blatantly false evidence in association with paid medical vigilantes medical license revocation has been brought to a high art form in this very blue state. I have been through this process twice. Each time the lies and misrepresentations by the medical board get deeper and the litigation longer. Facts get in the way of their ultimate agenda to sanction as many physicians as they can. Though the State government has provided a level of safeguards for physicians being inspected by the medical board these regulations are generally circumvented. With the help of a judiciary hostile to physician plaintiffs the medical board tends to obtain decisions favorable to them no matter where the evidence lies.

 

 

 

In my first confrontation with the Board of Physicians in 1990 the author was not aware of many facts at the time. Two physicians who came to review the author’s work at a nursing home he managed had perjured themselves in documentation and at an administrative hearing, were not in the same field as the author and had no authority to review him. Worse these facts and others were hidden by an eager Attorney General’s Office managed by J. Joseph Currans trying to be reelected. When the author had an opportunity through Freedom of Information request to see the documents that included these embedded facts he filed a lawsuit. To cover up the unlawfulness of his office Attorney General Curran’s representatives quickly enabled the author to regain his medical license on or about 1995.

 

 

 

In the author’s last go around with this corrupt entity one of the two Board witnesses engaged by this administrative entity sided with this physician as well as the judge in the Office of Administrative Hearings.That was not enough for these cretins who decide physician licensure. Their appointed lawyer, Robert Gilbert from the Attorney General’s office, brought charges knowing that one their expert witnesses completely disagreed with the charging document’s contents. The Board turned around their own judge’s ruling giving the author a 3 year revocation. Then on request for reinstatement, after passing a national test of clinical knowledge, was denied a license. To wound the author further the Board’s director wrote to the author not to reapply again. Corruption in this entity is not to be taken lightly. My case in not unique yet exemplifies a process that destroys careers even when there is minimal or no root cause.

 

 

 

Attorney General’s Office is supposed to bring factual data to the table when taking a case against a physician into an Administrative Hearing. In this physician’s case that did not happen nor was he allowed to defend himself because of quirks in Board Law. Nearly every rule of judicial and Board etiquette was circumvented to obtain a result that never should have ended in the way it did against this physician. Maryland physicians who have been dragged through the mud by the Board and the Attorney General’s Office are aware of the intrinsic

 

unfairness embedded in the civil prosecution of physicians. Doctors have few rights and even fewer abilities to effectuate a positive outcome when confronted by a Board that has lost sight of its reason for being and a judiciary in the tank for the Board. There is much more to this story including a massive amount of money that went unaccounted for from the author’s nursing home when the State intervened in its function in 1990, 157 patients who were displaced from their long term home, 160 workers who lost their jobs and more. Deceit unparalleled by a sitting Attorney General and misrepresentations to the public to keep his backside in a government post he did not deserve were at the forefront of this malicious prosecution. This story needs to be told in an evidence based manner and it will. Mark Davis, MD. platomd@gmail.com.

BOOK REVIEWS: A NECESSITY IN A VERY COMPETITIVE MARKET

 

  BOOK REVIEWS: A NECESSITY IN A VERY COMPETITIVE MARKET                

 

 

 

Books and reviews are inseparable. Reviews are fingerprints of the authored work they intend to display. A proper critique demands an appropriate analysis to draw out the best in a book. Many books languish, forgotten relics of hard work and vision. My job as a book reviewer is to flesh out important aspects of a publication so potential readers will be drawn into the substance of the work. There are very few bad books. Yet there are many poorly conceived reviews. A reviewer’s challenge is give his or her reader a flavor of the book being considered. With the latter in mind a book review should be authentic, unique and well written.

 

Best Book Reviews came into existence because its owner, Mark Davis MD, was not able to obtain appropriate review services when needed for his works. The few reviewers available requested outrageous prices to perform the work. Dr. Davis has a wide experience reviewing, proofing and copy editing books and journal articles. He reviews nonfiction books of most genres and science fiction. Whether it is a hard back, paper format, E book or other digital representation the review is always thorough, timely and worth the limited expense. Dr. Davis’ rates for review are extremely competitive. Do not let your book languish. A good review highlights booth the author and his work.

SPEX TEST: WHY YOU COULD FAIL WITHOUT GUIDANCE

 

SPEX TEST: WHY YOU COULD FAIL WITHOUT GUIDANCE

 

     As many physicians have discovered the Special Examination (SPEX) test was designed to fail. This exam’s broad contents, extensive set of questions and limited time to complete have caused an extremely high failure rate. Literature by the Federation of State Medical Boards, concerning this exam, is vague and misdirects applicants on what material to study.

 

     SPEX test consists of 336 questions broken down into 7 sections. Each segment contains 48 questions that must be finished in 64 minutes. This requires that examinees finish each question in 1.3 minutes. Many questions are 10 or more sentences in length with attached graphs, diagrams and or x-rays. Examinees are provided insufficient time to evaluate the circumstance of each question therefore choosing the correct answer becomes extremely difficult. This test is not a fair representation of a physician’s knowledge or abilities. Yet state boards require this unfair test under a number of circumstances. Usually a physician who has been away from practice for a prescribed period of time is a candidate. Unfortunately most medical boards provide no help in directing the physician where to emphasize his or her time. For the aforementioned reasons SPEX TUTORIAL SERVICES came into being.

 

     One on one tutoring helps candidates for the SPEX exam focus on the proper course of study. Your tutor, Mark Davis MD, has accumulated a vast experience with this exam. His knowledge ranges from specific question content to the flow of subject matter on recent exams. Dr. Davis will discuss which books and videos will give you the most return for time spent. With a physician’s limited time learning the most important aspects of the SPEX test will give the examinee a clear edge in order to pass this exam.
