I have been writing this BLOG since 2008. It has been widely read with over 1.2 million page views. I hope it has been helpful.
I have intentionally tried to keep this BLOG non-political. But alas, Lyme is a political disease and this is an inescapable fact.
I am in trouble now and asking for help.
I have been investigated by the medical Board 3 times since 2008. The first two investigations were dropped. I am no longer under investigation; I have been charged by the Medical Board of Maryland with serious violations.
The last investigation was initiated by a complaint from a major insurance company with which I previously participated with, 3 years ago.
A number of patient charts were reviewed and sent to "peer review." My reviewers were IDSA infectious disease doctors. One of the reviewers is a well known Johns Hopkins faculty member -- well known to be on a mission to stamp out doctors such as myself.
I am charged with violating the standard of care for each of 6 patient charts evaluated. In the charges ILADS' views are entirely nullified; the standard of care is solely based on IDSA guidelines.
The charges against me are serious. I face prosecution by the Attorney General's office of the State of Maryland at the behest of the Medical Board. The Board has informed me that the charges are public; the details are available for anyone to read.
The penalties may be wide ranging and may include suspension of my license to practice medicine.
I am asking that current patients and former patients of mine to write me a letter of support describing their experiences with the medical system and their experiences with care I provided for them. For now only send these letters to me, by email or snail mail.
Thank you for your support.
