Maryland Board of Physicians' illicit activities

Maryland Board of Physicians’ illicit use of authority

Maryland Board of Physicians no longer functions under the canopy of Maryland Law. Legislative mandates have very little meaning to those who believe they are beyond reproach. Maryland Legislature’s recent audit of this administrative entity, confirmed what many of us already knew, that it either cherry picks which laws to follow or ignores them completely. Maryland Board of Physicians was reconstituted in 2003 increasing its membership to 21 from 15. Presently 40% of those who serve on this entity are not physicians, diluting its expertise significantly. In an attempt to fill the void, the Maryland Attorney General’s Office imbued its authority throughout the Board’s structure, providing misleading and misguided counsel to this diminished entity. Maryland Board of Physicians failure to promulgate rules and regulations concerning physician practice is a point of contention for those who are forced to come before it. More egregious, this failure impedes physicians from certain due process rights provided to them by the Maryland Legislature. When confronted with these concerns, lawyers from the Attorney General’s Office dance around the issue, always ready with a judge in their back pocket to resolve the problem in their favor. In 2003 the Maryland legislature mandated that TWO physicians must agree that a doctor under review has deviated from the standard of care before a charge against him/her can be drawn. In the event they are in disagreement a third physician must be brought in to reconcile review process.  Eight years after this mandate was written, it still has not been implemented. Maryland Board of Physicians is now permitted to revoke a physician’s license based on the word of one medical doctor, who does not need to be in the specific field of the person being reviewed. The Board was able to get around this mandate because of their friends in the Appellate courts who rubberstamp whatever they bring before it. Mark Davis, MD faces revocation of his medical license because of the medical board’s illicit activities and the latter scenario presented. How many other physicians have been exposed to the Maryland Board of Medicines willy-nilly approach to the law is uncertain. This board Mark should be disbanded and those who stepped outside specific legislative mandates  prosecuted.  Davis, MD president of Healthnets Review Services,,

Lawyers: America's greatest threat

Lawyers: America’s greatest threat

Historians will consider our present time period as the age of lawyers. America is deluged with attorneys, with approximately 1.1 million who hold the JD degree. Every aspect of our lives is in some manner is influenced by the hand of one of these guardians of justice. Governments’ regressive policies, whether state or federal, have the imprint of the “legal industry.” Recently invented legislation that is intrusive in nature and costly to society evolved in the legal cauldrons and dark halls of Congress. Obamacare written entirely by attorneys is a gift to their brethren. This monstrosity will keep thousands of lawyers busy for the next generation, if not defeated in the Supreme Court. Have you wondered why there are so many illegals within the fifty states? Immigration lawyers, by the tens of thousands, have imbued themselves in processes that would have rid our shores of these invaders from the south. Perhaps you are curious why our so called trading partners always seem to get the best of trade deals. Incompetent lawyers script these agreements, so that they win at our expense. May be your thoughts have drifted to the obvious fact we do not manufacture anything. Why?  When lawyers are not writing union contracts that destroy worksites, they are suing these companies out of business. Worse, environment lawyers have been successful in blocking energy production throughout the country. Lawyers have been put in charge of the SEC and other financial oversight agencies, look at the results. Even the military is being checked by the incompetence of this former profession. According to the book Demons of Democracy; lawyers have no special knowledge of finances, economics, contractual protocols, international trade or sundry other positions that they fill. Most lawyers graduate from college with degrees in the social sciences because they lacked the intellectual capacity to master math and the sciences. Yet, they hold key positions in the government within these areas. The words expertise and lawyer when used together could be considered oxymoronic in nature. America’s present tragedies occurred when an illiterate electorate placed an inept lawyer in the White House. The republicans are seeking to repeat the same mistake. Lawyers are undermining every tradition and institution in this country. America is being victimized by these once sentinels of democracy as they profit through the detriment they inflict on us. In order to win back America, we need to curtail their influence on our daily lives. Vote right in 2012, for a chief executive who is not encumbered by a legal degree.
