Drugged Up Maryland


                                             Drugged Up Maryland



Drugs have found their way into every facet of Maryland life. Children are overdosed with amphetamines. While our aged population is controlled by third generation antidepressants. Those in between have alcohol, opioids, psychotropic drugs and now Marijuana. Controlling the masses has never been easier.

Marijuana industry is coming to the entitlement state. Initially 14 licensees have been chosen from a group of 140. Though the state’s Marijuana Commission notes the newly licensed were carefully picked evidence suggests many are politically well connected. Claiming “Medical Marijuana” will be of the purest variety by their choices the Commission needs to explain why not one pharmaceutical company was chosen. Yet someone from the casino industry was.

Decriminalization of Marijuana at the state level has been on the road to reality for years. In Maryland the drug epidemic, both legal and illegal, has gone beyond manageable levels. Adding Marijuana to the mix elevates the problem exponentially. As long as the drug is used in the privacy of one’s home who is to argue with its need and questionable medical necessity. Sense and sensibility dictates the latter will not be the norm. Instead people will mix Marijuana with the other drugs they utilize, including alcohol, resulting an increase in fatalities more expansive than currently is seen. Decriminalization absolutely, providing this drug through state approved outlets is extremely questionable and introduces a series of unknowns.

Physicians, who chose to prescribe Marijuana, must be on a state approved list. Once approved they must certify medical necessity to the patients seeking this drug. After approval the patient can take his or her Marijuana Identification card to a dispensary and receive a limited amount of this drug. Knowing most of the prescribed drug is not going to be used for its medically intended purpose who will be held responsible when irrationality of its use enters the picture? Will physicians be held responsible when a vehicular crash occurs by someone with excess drug in their systems (presently blood level excess has not been set)? If a physician approves too many requests will his or her license be impaired?  And the list of unknowns goes on.

Maryland Legislature pays lip service to those whose minds and bodies have been crushed by the never ending supply of drugs consumed by its residents. Marijuana should never have been criminalized. With that stated drug sales should not be supported by state mandate either. Enter a busy emergency and watch as the bodies of drug victims roll in. Marijuana may not be nearly as toxic as opioids. When combined with alcohol or other deadly substances bad results are inevitable. Does this reporter have the answers, no I don’t. Nevertheless neither does the Maryland hierarchy. I hope and pray that I am wrong. Yet experience outside Maryland should have taught those in power something. Apparently it hasn’t.

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?

Trump will not Dance to Kim Jung-un's Tune


Trump will not Dance to Kim Jung-un’s Tune



Prior presidential administrations appeased North Korea with money and gifts hoping they would move down a civilized path. Ironically North Korea’s nuclear ambitions became more aggressive. America and its allies are inches from a thermonuclear showdown with a megalomaniac who is inviting war on himself and others. Diplomacy is fading as a tool to sedate Kim Jung-un. Since Dennis Rodman could not seduce Kim into compliance with international law perhaps a missile up his rear end will. President Trump is left with few options if Kim’s trigger finger gets itchy.



Newest in Kim’s arsenal purportedly is a Hydrogen bomb. Power in this type of weapon is exponential to the previous devices North Korea had developed. Allies of this isolated nation, including China and Russia, appear to have enabled the building of this horrific weapon. Nevertheless both countries approved sanctions in the United Nations after Kim set off a series of missiles recently. Guam may be the ultimate target of North Korea because of its proximity and American military base there.  President Trump must decide soon whether to continue failing diplomacy or bring the wrath of God down on North Korea’s military. The next few weeks will answer this question.

Medicalboardusa.com Protecting Physicians from Medical Board Abuses


Medicalboardusa.com Protecting Physicians from Medical Board Abuses




Medicalboardusa.com is a website designed to provide support to physicians who are under the duress of a medical board intervention and or a malicious malpractice case. When targeted physicians become isolated, their stance in the community is diminished and the economic drain is potentially enormous. With the latter in mind this site seeks to connect physicians with others who have been down this road and appropriate people who can protect them. Medicalboardusa.com seeks lawyers who are extremely cognizant of administrative law that governs medical practice. Medical Boards have counsel well versed in this segment of the law and their targets should have equal representation.



Medical Boards have moved on from oversight of their flock to confrontational assaults with physicians. When targeted a physician should expect the worst from their medical colleagues who sit on these tribunals. With the misuse of standards of care and complex regulatory structure medical boards now entrap physicians with bogus compliance cases. These actions are performed to improve their sanction numbers amongst the states. Studies of the Arizona, Texas and Maryland Medical Boards display they have been politicized to a point that they lost the purpose of their original intent. Case after case reviewed displayed only strong legal representation by a lawyer who knew his/her way around the regulatory mind field had successful outcomes. This site should be a first step for accused physicians to discuss their cases before answering any letter from a medical board inquiring about their practice.

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.

The Next Thousand Years

Questioned recently what will humanity achieve in the next thousand years in the event it does not destroy itself first. 1) Aging will be slowed if not arrested. 2) Humanity will spread out to the stars crossing space as quickly as we cross oceans presently. 3) All diseases will be cured 4) Money will become nonexistent. All our personal needs will be met. 5) Sex for pleasure not pregnancy. Birthing will be performed at central locations though people will choose if they want to birth personally. 6) ET's presence will finally be realized. 7) Teleportation will be a reality. 8) Intelligence will be magnified to heights only dreamed of in science fiction. 9) Physiques of humans will change such that all living will have Olympic abilities. 10) War becomes a distant memory.  Please add or challenge any of these thoughts. Thanks.

Maryland Medical Society A Self-Serving Entity


Maryland Medical Society: A Self-Serving Entity



In the course of time the original intent of the Maryland Medical Society has been lost. Predating the Maryland Board of Physicians and its multiple prior incarnations the Society, commonly called MedChi, has become a commercial entity with little regard for those who pay its bills. Claiming to represent all licensed physicians in Maryland its membership rolls are a fraction of the total practitioners statewide. Presently the Society’s website is designed for commercial ventures with sidebars stating how this quasi entity is protecting physicians. The Society is no longer a hedge against an adversarial medical board. Decades ago reviews of physicians’ practices were governed by The Peer Review Handbook generated by a cooperation between MedChi and the Board of Physicians. This is no longer the case as the Society stepped back to take a tertiary role selling insurance and deceptive enticement to bring unsuspecting physicians into the fold. Their targets have been younger physicians inexperienced in practice and the practices of the corrupt Board that licensed them. These doctors will learn quickly when they need this Society their cries for help will fall on deaf ears.



In recent decades the Maryland Medical Society has enabled the Board of Physicians to become the unscrupulous and corrupt Administrative government agency that is in force today. Hundreds of physicians are picked off every year by an effort between the Board and Maryland Attorney General’s Office. With absolute immunity the Board is able to escape retribution by their victims especially when the evidence goes against them. The Society looks the other way claiming it is the proverbial watch dog against this errant Board and legislative efforts against the medical profession. This could not be further from the truth. Both the Medical Board and Medical Society are managed by lawyers. This is not science fiction but a reality that physicians end up confronting when the Board turns its eyes towards them. The cooperative effort between these two entities is elaborated on in the next section.



In the early 1990s the Medical Society published a journal which displayed a cooperative effort with the Maryland Board of Physicians. In this journal the Society would publish raw data concerning physicians who were condemned by the Medical Board. The Journal editors refused to take any response to the data from the physician being victimized by the Board. In the author’s case over a dozen pages of raw data, later found to be false, were published in the Society’s rag. After being told, in the most literal sense to go screw myself by the Society when I complained, the author filed a lawsuit in Baltimore City Circuit Court. Known for its left leaning decisions the author won the case after the Society’s lawyers lied about their connections to the Board. Case number 24C93201023 the Court found the Society had no direct connection to the Medical Board. Therefore it had no right or responsibility to published unedited and or raw data about a physician in their Journal. This author presented this case pro se and remarkably the judge agreed with me. In the aftermath of this decision the Board began publishing quarterly publications of sanctions against physicians written in an abbreviated style.



Maryland Medical Society’s website is far from accurate. Yes, it owns an insurance company which has expanded from malpractice coverage to anything and everything that needs to be insured. Yes, it puts on social events for physicians. Yes, it tries to attract a crowd of newly minted doctors who are unaware how little the Society will give them in return. With that stated the Society has not restrained a medical board whose primary goal is to improve its sanction numbers amongst the states. The foolish notion this entity will help doctors by overseeing legislative efforts concerning medical practice is absurd. The onerous rules on physicians’ backs have increased exponentially under this so-called watch dog. Having an attorney as CEO guarantees there will be little effort to help physicians when the Board turns its eyes on them. In discussions with a multitude of physicians over several years my point of view is widespread. Maryland has a medical society that is self-serving, unwilling and or unable to help physicians through the sanctioning process and does not have physicians’ welfare at the center of its existence. For these reasons and more the Maryland Medical Society only has a sub-segment of Maryland physicians as members displaying how smart my colleagues really are.



Mark Davis MD victimized by this Society once but never again.

Holywood on the Decline


Hollywood’s diminution arrives as its creativity leaves the scene. Revivals, reboots and sequels are the mainstay of this town’s current revenue stream. Faltering at the box office this summer ticket sales have slowed to a spurt of prior years. This town is full of mimicry not originality presently. Great directors need great scripts not redundancy that is currently being offered them. Entertainment magazines are fraught with previews of duplicates and triplicates of past titles. Star Wars has traveled further than any sequence of cinema presentations in history. Time to put his war horse to bed permanently. Jurassic Park has lived longer than the dinosaurs of old. This fossil too should find a museum for its aging bones. I enjoy a good flick like any other consumer looking for a few hours of suspended disbelief. Yet I will not spend my few quarters on titles that have been regurgitated more than a ruminant chews its curd.

Medical Boards' War against Physicians


                                  Medical Boards’ War against Physicians





Erratic behavior by state medical boards has come to light across a nation starving for health care. Physicians have become pawns in a game medical boards play to enhance their sanction numbers. Sick, twisted and disturbing medical practices have no place in the spectrum of health care. Yet the majority of physicians being sanctioned are for frivolous reasons. A review of medical board sanctions from several states displays the capriciousness of their interventions. Paper compliance is one scheme these administrative entities use to deprive physicians of medical licenses. Another is the use of the term standard of care. Embedded in Tort law this phrase has been abused beyond reason. Most repugnant is irrational regulatory structure legislated into law against physicians for the purpose of micromanaging a physician’s practice. Stepping outside the boundaries of one regulation ensnares a doctor into a system bent on destroying his career. 



When the assault on a physician begins it is indelibly imprinted on the mind of the victim. Generally the inquisition is initiated with a subpoena or a notice of inquiry concerning a patient or patients. The cause of the action could be a complaint or randomly generated. In either case the physician is at the starting gate of a long process which will either be confrontative, intensely adversarial or a combination of both. Do not make the mistake of giving these errant boards anything more than requested. A smarter move would be to engage an attorney cognizant of Board procedure and regulation. This is very specialized area of the law not known to many attorneys. To go to war against an adversary with a big hammer one must have a hammer of his or her own. A board intent on sanctioning a physician, especially when the evidence goes in the opposite direction, will be successful unless the target is properly protected.



Medical Boards have exceeded their legislative mandates by perpetrating fraud on one entire segment of society, physicians. Prosecutorial misconduct is common against physicians who do not fall in line. In many cases the prosecution of individuals is so baseless it is openly apparently. The author will post a series of articles concerning his adventures in the nether world of deceit incurred against him by the Maryland Board of Physicians. The purpose of this writing and others to follow is to open a dialogue which will lead to physicians having proper guidance when confronting an outright assault on their careers.

The Terminal President


                                                The Terminal President



President Trump came to Washington with the best of intentions. The harsh reality he has confronted was not on the horizon when he set out to achieve the White House. Gridlock and obstruction have always been part of the liberal mantra. No one expected these impediments on the conservative end. Six months into Donald Trump’s historic term the left is falling all over itself attempting to finish Trump’s Presidency early. Utilizing Robert Mueller, as a special prosecutor to perform their dirty work, he is moving far outside the Russian probe for which he was engaged. In the event you cannot find ghost on your own hire a ghost hunter.



Media icons continue to push a theme that Trump’s legislative agenda is dead. Far from it. Mostly recently only three Republicans refrained from voting for a milder version of repeal and replace of Obamacare. Trump was able to corral the rest into his corner. Failure no, rejection no these three have a habit of voting in another direction. Nevertheless health care legislation has only been delayed.



Government operations now function more smoothly after Trump removed Obama era obstacles. Energy production is peaking after a cap placed on exploration was removed.  Military has been liberated from White House control leaving it to pursue its primary purpose, protecting American interests and people. One by one onerous Executive Orders from the past eight years are being nullified. Medias’ silence on these issues displays their imbued hatred for Trump and their left leaning bent.



Trump will triumph because the course he sets is focused, consistent with constitutional principles and is against those who want to see the nation fall. No matter how many roadblocks he encounters failure will not follow him.

When Liberals Fail


                                                      When Liberals Fail



Clownish behavior by liberal mongers to implicate the President in collusion with the Russians is nothing less than a travesty in the making. More than a year has gone by since the first whispers of foreign involvement in the American election process surfaced. Falling all over each other to see who can catch a Russian ghost first the left are diverting attention from their treasonous behavior. From Debbie Wasserman Schultz engaging Pakistani operatives to manage DNC computers to Hillary’s wheeling and dealing for funds to enhance the Clinton Foundation from foreign entities. As the Democrats search for answers to unanswerable questions the liberal slime moves freely amongst us with impunity or so they think. Prosecution of individuals selling out America for a buck or two should be a top priority for the judicial system. So far it hasn’t been. Donald Trump is correct when he stated that his Attorney General has veered too far from Hillary-Gate. Suspending his role in the Russian probe was no less a surprise to the President.  Time has come to replace the Sessions and put America’s house in order.

Overzealous Medical Boards


Overzealous Medical Boards

Medical Boards have gone beyond policing of physicians to unconscionable intrusion into medical practice. Complexity of administrative law governing physician licensing and subsequent maintenance of licensure requires a knowledge beyond the ken of most physicians. Medical Boards employ their own attorneys and or utilize those from the Attorney General’s Office in the state from which medical licenses are derived. Without knowing the intricacy of medical board regulatory function a physician has no chance of obtaining an impartial hearing. Fair and balanced should not be expected from adversarial government entities. Medical Boards across the country have garnered more power as physicians blindly kowtowed to each and every edict they generated. Medical Societies, with few exceptions, no longer protect the flock that pay their way. Social and economic impact from a negative Board maneuvers against a physician can be devastating. Therefore the proper push back is a moral imperative.

As a former practicing physician I have seen the lengths a state board will go to prove a lie against you is true. Standards of Care may not be as standard as those empowered by us want you to believe. Through the use of hired guns, also called medical vigilantes, medical boards can make a case where none exists. Administrative courts, where your supposed impartial hearing is to take place, are nothing more than biased forums to cement the outcome the Medical Board is seeking. In the event a hearing goes your way most Boards have the right to flip the positive court outcome against you. The latter statement is factually true as this author has experienced. Medical Boards have moved far afield from their original intent. These administrative entities are self-serving meaning sanctioning is their reason for existence. By sanctioning as many physicians as possible the public perception is they are doing a fine job. Boards have forgotten physicians have rights too. Yet these entities cherry pick regulations to effectuate the preconceived outcome they want. Do not go before a Board or a Court without “appropriate” counsel. The end result could be devastating to your career.

From Entitlement to Intolerance to Expectation


From Entitlement to Intolerance to Expectation

      Until recently I thought there was a specter of hope in the entitlement community where they would see the proverbial writing on the wall. Freebies may be coming to an end, as they know them. The welfare set has become too emboldened recently as though society owes them for past grievances. Collectively we owe them nothing. Through protest, violence, misrepresentation of facts and finally murder their words and deeds speak for themselves. In certain quarters the latter elements are actually forgiven and or given a pass.

College and universities have become the newest battleground to spew hatred from those who condemn work and scholarship. Diminished standards placed these radicals in institutions which formerly would have rejected them. Coincident with their intolerance to other subsets of civil society a truly emboldened crowd has manifest an unheard of anger towards those who keep us safe. Calling for the annihilation of police steps over any line that can be drawn. Time has come to resurrect policies that have a measured approach in silencing this hideous rhetoric. What should our approach be to these malevolent attitudes and actions? Mark Davis

Betrayed, a novel by Elizabeth Devine

Betrayed is a novel which moves from the pleasures of the bedroom to the episodic politics of the boardroom. Set in the fictitious community of Lakeland, Taylor Long’s placid family life is interrupted by accusations she murdered two co-workers. Entrapped by circumstance the protagonist has more than enough reasons to want her employer dead, as mounting evidence points in her direction. Thematic throughout this well written novel are numerous events which prevent the main character from moving above the proverbial glass ceiling. Author Elizabeth Devine’s plot twists keep the reader on edge as the story plays out to its surprising conclusion. Betrayed kept me riveted to my chair chapter after chapter. This is one book that should be in your collection as it is in mine.

Unmasking the Maryland Board of Physicians


Unmasking of the Maryland Board of Physicians





Maryland Board of Physicians is managed by attorneys not physicians. This Board’s constituent members, physicians, are incidental to the administrative efforts and processes of this Board. Language descriptive to the type of people who partake in this Board’s management would be inappropriate in this article. Needless to state they are the bottom of the barrel. On or about 1992 the medical license of Mark Davis MD was revoked. The circumstances of this revocation were based on frivolous and illicit actions by this Board. An article is posted at:       https://onandoffthehill.com/2017/05/04/corruption-entrenched-in-marylands-highest-legal-circles/  describing their illicit actions along with supportive documents. Yes, Soviet style justice is practiced at the highest levels in Maryland. Reading further one will see how criminal they are.  



After being viciously debased in the media by former Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran and the Board of Physicians with claims of poor patient care, that never occurred, Dr. Davis filed an unprecedented lawsuit. This case was filed on or about 1994 at the Anne Arundel County Maryland Circuit Court. As the plaintiff in the case, who represented himself, the court was uninterested in his legal filing and dispensed with the case quickly, though each and every fact stated was verifiable. All the defendants were given immunity and the case was dismissed. The Anne Arundel case and its appeal to the Court Special Appeals (in full) are both located at the link below this article to substantiate the factual nature of Dr. Davis’ assertions.



In 1994 Case number 1819, September Term was to be heard by a 3 judge panel in the Court of Special Appeals. The Appellant, Mark Davis MD who brought this case, was approached in the outer area of the courtroom by 2 members of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. The exchange of verbiage that occurred was both illuminating and extremely outside normal legal processes. These 2 men prostituted themselves by stating in the event Dr. Davis dropped this case, before it was heard by the Court, the Maryland Attorney General’s Office would enable him to have his medical license reinstated. Dr. Davis’, who was representing himself, considered the offer and accepted it in good faith. Sadly this faith was misplaced. In the event this case was heard by the Court a scandal of extreme proportions would have rocked the state and potentially the State of Maryland would have had to pay out millions in retribution to those who were falsely accused. Worse the people of the State of Maryland would have found out how corrupt their Attorney General was. The profound level of deception, misrepresentation and misuse of government office was beyond belief. After Dr. Davis dropped the case he was invited to appear before the Maryland Medical Board to have his medical license reinstated.



In 1995 Dr. Mark Davis represented himself before 15 members of the Maryland Board of Physicians (now the Board has 21 members). Board members asked several questions yet avoided others which were more important. Dr. Davis told them there were no medical malpractice cases filed against him, the other physician staff members, the auxiliary staff or the nursing home where the so-called horrific patient care “never” took place. Dozens of medical records had been requested by attorneys. The nursing home had an umbrella malpractice insurance policy with maximum coverage. Each physician had maximum coverage for that time period (1989-1990). If you are suspicious that a false action occurred against Dr. Davis, you are correct. Quizzically none of the 15 members of the Board or Board’s assigned lawyers discussed any aspect of the Court of Special Appeals’ case. The 1995 Board knew they had been misled and had made a huge mistake against Dr. Davis. The good doctor was told to leave the room. Approximately 1 hour later he was called and told his license was reinstated unanimously by Board membership. In the event you believe this was a wrong made right, it wasn’t. Instead the Board through its attack dog, the Maryland Attorney General’s Office, had ulterior motives.



On or about June of 2001 Dr. Davis received a subpoena for medical records. This was immediately after Dr. Davis’ 5 year supervised probation by the Board was completed.  Ten charts requested were immediately sent to the quality assurance section of the Board. This was the beginning of a decade long assault on Dr. Davis’ medical license. After a series of legal encounters and the Medical Board’s disregard for its own written rules Dr. Davis received a document that accused him of violating the Medical Practices Act. Dr. Davis was being charged nearly 6 years after the initial request for medical records, though resolution usually occurs within one year by regulation. The charging document was a series of false allegations, innuendos and misrepresentations written by Robert Gilbert from the Maryland Attorney General’s Office.  Five charts were cited by two physician medical record reviewers in the document. Surprisingly one of the reviewers chosen by Mr. Gilbert, who was chief of a medical department at a local hospital, stated Dr. Davis did not transgress any standards of care. The second physician, Ira Kaplan, was engaged to review medical records from a company that Dr. Davis had sued nearly a decade before. Was this a coincidence, absolutely not.                                



To abbreviate this portion of the story Dr. Kaplan was not an expert in “diet medications” on which the charges was based though the judge reviewing the case accepted him as one. Dr. Kaplan’s only claim for being a medical records reviewer, in this case, was his background in Internal Medicine. Dr. Kaplan’s lack of knowledge of diet medications was obvious when he was cross examined. He might as well have been a carpenter. The Administrative Court found for Dr. Davis in the “majority”, though he was not allowed to present evidence, documents and bring in expert or patient witnesses (see forthcoming e-book Anatomy of a Medical License Revocation). The Board turned the administrative judge’s opinion around 180 degrees and gave Dr. Davis a 3 year revocation though Board members never heard the case directly themselves. After requesting reinstatement from the Board in a hearing during December 2016 they turned down his application. Additionally the Order from Board noted they would not entertain any further reinstatement applications. This case scenario sounds unbelievable yet it happened here in Maryland. This infamous case will be laid out in detail in the aforementioned e-book presently being written. One additional point is a Public Information Request was placed with the Board for all documents, recordings and paperwork related to the December 2016 hearing. The Board outright refused this request, hid behind regulations as the reason to refuse the request and then told Dr. Davis to seek judicial recourse knowing the courts generally side with Maryland Administrative entities. If they are innocent of collusion and corruption why hide information related to this request? It is ironic that the Board hides behind their regulatory authority to protect themselves yet they did not follow the same regulations in Dr. Davis’ case.



The Maryland Board of Physicians, it chief executive Christine Farrelly along with a member of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office Robert Gilbert should be investigated for the following; filing a false charging document, obstructing due process, violating the rights of a physician, violating written physician Board  regulations, lying to judicial officers and revoking a physician’s license based on zilch. Please review the attached document at the link noted below. Please allow a few seconds for this site to open. These are the documents that Maryland’s Attorney General J. Joseph Curran did not want the media to see.

Donald Trump versus the Snake of Eden


With the artful movements of the snake in Eden former President Obama is bringing his venomous tones against Trump to whomever will listen. Charged with a single minded crusade to disrupt Trump, hence democracy, Obama’s deranged mind believes disorder and chaos work better in a world full of hate and religious intolerance. The inconvenience of order does not play well with someone who failed, in 8 years, to do little more than feed the coffers of his personal flock. Obama’s derangement does not stop at the frontiers of his mind it has infected many others. Slime never rises above the level in which it moves. Obama’s is exploiting his former position as he did when he held the presidency.  In neither case did it help the little girl with the lemonade stand on the corner or her father struggling to make the rent. When the political dust falls Trump will stand tall as history writes of a former President who was a shadow of the man who replaced him. God speed to Donald Trump for taking on the snake of Eden’s failures. Mark Davis MD. platomd@gmail.com speaker, media consultant, author and a true patriot.

Maryland's Attorney General's Office files Three False Reports against a Physician


Maryland’s Attorney General’s Office files Three False Reports against a Physician

Three false documents have been filed against Mark Davis MD in recent years by the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. These documents were filed for proceedings before the Maryland Board of Physicians and were written by Robert Gilbert Esquire, a subordinate of the Attorney General and a holdover from other Administrations. This toxic human being has focused his hate and inability to tell the truth, in his capacity as an attorney employed by Maryland, against this physician. The substance of his actions was most recently heard during a hearing on December 21, 2016 before the Maryland Board of Physicians. Gullible Board members nevertheless gave this despicable human being’s statements credibility while ignoring documented facts presented to this Administrative authority by Mark Davis MD. The Executive Director of the Board, Christine Farrelly, bought into to every statement and written word he annunciated and or created. Since it is the job of the accused to display his innocence and to display the guilt of others Dr. Davis gave the Board a packet which contained page after page of well documented facts that countered every aspect of Mr. Gilbert’s incredible misrepresentation of Dr. Davis’ background

and recent history. Mr. Gilbert’s polished legal tones and repetitive lies carried him over the finish line and Dr. Davis was refused his well- deserved medical license. Further he was told by Ms. Farrelly, in a letter, that the Board will not entertain another request for licensure. How did an attorney become the Executive Director of a Medical Board is beyond my comprehension, yet it is so in Maryland.

The Board’s Executive Director Christine Farrelly is playing God with physician’s careers. She has overstepped her authority on many levels and has failed to investigate the true facts involving  Dr. Davis’ background and history. Under her tutelage physicians can lose their licenses when only one doctor makes a complaint against another. Yes, Soviet Russia has come to America. Ms. Farrelly should be removed from her post and stripped of her immunity for failing to guard the rights of physicians. After a contrite Dr. Mark Davis appeared before Maryland Board of Physicians on December 21st 2016, completely out of character for him, Farelly and Gilbert pissed on him. To display how dirty and illicit this Board has become Dr. Davis made a Public Information Request for information related to the hearing on December 21st 2016. The request for information and the Board’s answer is below. Ms. Farrelly and her minions her hiding behind archaic rules using legal chicanery to block release of the requested materials. The Board even went so far stating Dr. Davis can seek judicial relief in a Maryland Court. In a judicial system that kisses the behinds of their Administrative authorities the Board is aware there is no chance for judicial relief. With immunity to all players and a thousand legal roadblocks at their disposal Ms. Farrelly and mob do not want the truth to come out, only her version should be heard. To me it sounds like we are back forty years ago when Nixon stated he was not a crook, as he leaned on a dozen Bibles.



Please review the Public Information Request made by Dr. Davis. The Board’s response is attached to an article at the following website: https://onandoffthehill.com/2017/05/15/marylands-attorney-generals-office-files-three-false-reports-against-a-physician/    What is Ms. Farrelly and Mr. Gilbert hiding?  For additional information please review the attached article at this website displaying how deep Maryland Board of Physician Corruption has gone.

Corruption entrenched in Maryland’s highest legal circles



Governments are not established to demean or deprecate the citizens that support them. Their intrinsic value is to provide civility to populations that are otherwise not organized. Carrying out these functions administrative agencies are created, under the canopy of a central authority, to streamline delivery of these services to the governed. Sadly government’s hands are not always clean providing the aforementioned tasks. Two state Attorney Generals, one from Texas and the other in Pennsylvania, found themselves being prosecuted.   Securities fraud caught Ken Paxton in the Lone Star State and perjury for Kathleen Kane in the Keystone State. Maryland government has problems in the same office represented by the latter two individuals.



In 1990 the former Attorney General of Maryland J. Joseph Currans was up for reelection. He needed a cause celebre to fire up his constituents, therefore he chose the Poplar Manor Nursing Home to take down. With legal chicanery and the help of two medical vigilantes, doctors who review medical charts for a living, a false front was created to close this facility. With the most fraudulent considerations in mind these doctors, George Taler and Timothy Keay provided the vicious false reviews, as they were directed to perform by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Fortunately for the ownership, including this author, they left a trail of documentary evidence which would vindicate him and others several years later.



From the archives of Mr. Currans’ office a series of documents, which were withheld from us earlier, were released through a Public Information request. Within these pages there is display of perjury, filing false medical reports and clear intent to close a nursing home without basis. In time between the Home’s closing and the documents discovery Mr. Curran basked in a false light which made him a hero in many eyes. Little did the public realize the very man they elevated to the highest legal throne in Maryland was nothing more than a petty crook with a large hammer. The attached website provides the documents necessary to discern the illegalities Mr. Currans incurred against the innocent. Please read the report and review the documents on this web page. 






In future reports this author will discuss how the Maryland Board of Physicians lies and deceives the public by filing false charges against doctors with the help of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office.  Please also look for an e-book entitled: Anatomy of a Medical License Revocation.

MARYLAND ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE CAUGHT IN A MIRE OF CORRUPTION


Maryland Attorney General’s Office Caught in a Mire of Corruption



On December 21st 2016 Mark Davis MD went before the Maryland Board of Physicians. The matters discussed below in this brief article were resurrected from 1990 during this hearing along with the contents of a fraudulent charging document concocted by attorney Robert Gilbert of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office, which he wrote in 2006. The charging document was so viciously false and its complexity so deprecating an e-book is being prepared for its presentation to the public. Needless to state Mr. Gilbert, in his legal capacity, was able to convince the Board of Physician members that his charging document was true though one of the two physician reviewers it was based on stated Dr. Davis followed the standards of care. Additionally Dr. Davis was cleared in the majority by an administrative judge 2007. Facts get in the way because lies make better news. Dr. Davis was told in writing he should never again apply for a medical license in Maryland though he passed a national test of competence in 2016. In our e-book we will discuss in detail how politicized and corrupt the Maryland Board of Physicians is and details of Dr. Davis’ disgusting treatment by them. Please read below. All comments are welcome. All documents related to this article are on the attached link.



As the summer receded in 1989 I made a huge mistake for myself, my family, co-workers and investors, I purchased a nursing home in Maryland. A toxic group of Maryland Administrative entities knew before the ink was dry on the contract of this facility, Poplar Manor Nursing Home, would close no matter what its new owners would do to save it. Anyone caught in the vortex of this transaction, including this author, would be pulled down into a never ending spiral of legal chicanery. A document noting this facility was on track to be closed was withheld from the potential new owners by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) and its attack dog the Maryland Attorney General’s Office. New management moved in on or about August 1989 and the latter two entities, who entrapped us, tried to move us out before 30 days was up. As medical director for 8 years I was not aware the facility had problems in categories outside of my control. The withheld document is part of a forthcoming e-book and included here as document 1. The State of Maryland’s parasites were not finished. They not only wanted the facility closed their intention was to bury the major owner, it’s former medical director. Their tools were a sea of lies, misrepresentations and legal entanglements for the end purpose, medical license revocation and removal of nursing home ownership. There was no coincidence that J. Joseph Currans, the Maryland Attorney General, was running for reelection during this time in 1990. This meant he needed a cause celebre to run on. He used Poplar Manor as one of his fulcrum’s for reelection. That is, he personally saved hundreds of patients from an evil doctor, 12 associate doctors and his approximately 160 workers. Curran’s wanted people to believe the ownership spent 5 million dollars to torture patients and run a nursing home into the ground. The narrative was false then as it is now to keep this physician out of practice in Maryland and keep another corrupt politician in office.



By the end of 13 horrifying months, orchestrated by Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH), management was replaced. New physicians were brought in to work with patients and the facilities bank accounts were removed from our control and eventually emptied. Since there were no malpractice cases filed or complaints from anyone what was the basis for this unfounded change in the facility personnel. Two physicians from University of Maryland, Dr. George Taler and Dr. Timothy Keay were brought in to cover up the incompetence of the State physician reviewer, Dr. Lois Leonard. It seems Dr. Leonard was not qualified to review nursing homes or any other facility because she did not have the prerequisite training to do so. Her post medical school training was a 1 year rotating internship. Yet the DHMH hired her to monitor nursing homes and other facilities. She was not qualified to place a band-aid on a finger. Drs. Keay and Taler were profoundly involved in the following illicit activities.



1)  They were engaged to review physician services by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, not the Board of Physicians, who was the only legal Maryland authority empowered to review licensed physician services during this period of time.

2) They did not follow the collective protocols of the Board of Physicians and the Maryland Medical Society to perform physician reviews which were in force at the time. Documents 2, 3,4,5 display their mishmash reviews which are nearly illegible, outside the standard of review and far from accurate.

3) In an affidavit filed by George Taler on July 5th 1994, affirmed under the penalties of perjury, Dr. Taler knowingly perjured himself with the help of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office by the following:

a) Document 6 and 7 is Taler’s affidavit.  

b) In Document 7 Dr. Taler claims he reviewed a representative sample of patients at the nursing home. This indicated he chose the medical records personally, untrue. Document 8 displays Drs. Taler and Keay were given the charts to review. The starred names were the patients reviewed by the State employed Physician, Dr.Lois  Leonard. Dr. Leonard was specifically sent into the facility to find anything she could wrong  with physician care, when there was none. Drs. Keay and Taler were sent in to cover up her work and confirm her lies. The evidence cannot be interpreted any other way. c) In document 7 Dr. Taler states he had no personal gain from the review. Yet in documents pages 9-11, which is the contract for Drs. Keay and Taler to review medical records, it states they  would paid over $4,000 in 1990 funds, more lies.



Perjury was okay because it was backed by Maryland Attorney General’s Office. Civil and criminal charges were based on erroneous medical record reviews. A nursing home was closed and 157 patients were displaced because of phony medical record reviews. Additionally one hundred sixty people lost their jobs because of an out of control health department and administrators wanting to move up the food chain. Upwards of a half a million dollars is unaccountable from the facility’s accounts. Most of all a God fearing physician was dragged through the media, the legal system and to financial catastrophe for absolutely nothing.



When Dr. Mark Davis filed case number 1819, September term, 1994 before the Maryland Court of Special Appeals the Maryland Attorney General’s Office took quick notice. Two attorneys from this self-serving corrupt office requested Dr. Davis to drop this case and in return they suggested they would enable him to have his medical license reinstated. He did drop the case and they helped him regain his medical license 1995. The Medical Board, by a unanimous decision, returned his medical license. The Board realized the initial case filed against Dr. Davis was nothing less than dreck.  If this case had been heard perhaps the current Attorney General of the time, J. Joseph Currans would have been brought up on charges. There is much more to this case. Attorney Gilbert must be outed for his erroneous statements before the December 21, 2016 Maryland Board hearing and the unfounded charging document he concocted in 2006. This article only touches the surface of the vast corruption in the Maryland Administrative authorities noted here. No patient was harmed in any manner by Dr. Mark Davis, yet hundreds were harmed by the authorities discussed in these pages.  Please look for the complete e-book on this case coming soon.

Book Review: Devil's Concubine by Sebati Edward Mafate


The Devil’s Concubine by Sebati Edward Mafate





Dark forces are thematic throughout this well written novel by Sebati Edward Mafate. Protagonist, Raymond Pata, decides to break with his family and move to California. His ultimate goal is to sit atop of the music industry. Influenced by the cultural dynamics of his Haitian origins, including mysticism, he moves through the circles of life until evil overwhelms his entire being. In order to support his dream he connects with a carjacking ring stealing high end vehicles. Living in the shadows of life Raymond becomes exceptionally talented in his second career, auto theft. Entrenched by the powers of darkness Raymond takes to ritualistic killing of those who yielded their vehicles to him. Symbolism is well utilized by this author to foreshadow future occurrences. The Protagonist’s eye for beauty is his final downfall as Hell paradoxically targets him. Author Mafate cleverly weaves a story rich in detail displaying a soul that thrives on carnage and the very blood of other human beings. This page-turner was difficult to put down even for the most human of circumstances. No doubt The Devil’s Concubine will fly off the shelves as readers become aware of it.

Confronting Infinity


Confronting Infinity



Borders between life and death have moved from science fiction to exploratory science. Paranormal studies were once only a fringe study. Now the fringe is rapidly becoming main stream. Since man’s inception into this universe he has suspected there is more to being human than a physical self. The word soul has been named in a thousand different ways all with similar meanings: a detached ethereal component of the human body which lives on after physical death. A more modernistic approach to the definition is an incorporeal entity that exists at the quantum level which is indestructible and lives on after all physical activity ceases. Pick your choice both definitions imply a transition into another mode of reality. With great privilege and humility I was allowed to be part of the dying process of hundreds who I knew well in life. These patients and a few friends were aware their time was short in this living environment. One specifically stands out. A former teacher nearing the age of 95 was under my care in a nursing home. Her mind was as sharp as the proverbial tack. The subject of death often crossed her mind. She believed ( I am paraphrasing) a door opened somewhere to let the departed through.  I never saw any fear in her. All I can state from my humble perch is every human will confront this transition, believers or not, that there is an awakening somewhere else. This is one man’s opinion without proselytizing his intrinsic beliefs.

The Delinquent Author

A huge problem for many editors, proofreaders and book reviews is the delinquent author. After a fee schedule is agreed to, with the payment expected at the completion of the work performed, the author decides to play financial charades with you. My Paypal account is corrupted in some manner or form. Another approach is they do not return your e-mails once you indicate the work is completed hoping you will further reduce your fees. Still another format is I will pay you if the book sells. These and many other scenarios may be hard to contemplate yet they happen more than one would think. The obvious resolution to this problem is to get your money up from instead of utilizing the honor system and obtaining it on the backend. I have utilized the honor system because most authors who have asked me to help them are honorable people. Yet I am rethinking my approach. It is no fun when a person stiffs you for nominal fees requested. My question to the audience is: Should you collect your fees up front or request payment at completion of the work?
