The state Medical Examining Board agreed Friday to temporarily suspend the medical license of a Durham physician who is accused of giving out exemptions for COVID-19 vaccines and masks without examining -- or even knowing -- the patients requesting the documents, state records show.

...Dr. Sue McIntosh is accused of allowing people to mail her Durham[, CT] practice a self-addressed, stamped envelope to receive signed exemptions, state Department of Public Health (DPH) documents said. Her license to practice medicine and surgery is suspended until a hearing can be held on Oct. 5, officials said.

The exemption paperwork that McIntosh mailed to people included explanations of what various exemptions would be, such as cancers, autism disorders, autoimmune disorders and others, and how to fill out the exemption paperwork, documents said.

"You may copy and distribute as many forms as you wish to anyone," the instructions provided by McIntosh said. "Keep blank copies for yourself for future use." She ended the instructions with "Let freedom ring!" the DPH documents said....

According to the DPH documents, McIntosh deviated from the standard of care by failing to properly diagnose or examine people who had been given the exemptions. She also failed to build a patient and physician relationship with those who requested the exemptions, failed to obtain their medical history, and failed to comply with Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) guidelines by providing advice that was harmful to the public.

Sounds like her license is about to be toast.

That doesn't sound illegal on its own.

"You may copy and distribute as many forms as you wish to anyone," the instructions provided by McIntosh said. "Keep blank copies for yourself for future use." She ended the instructions with "Let freedom ring!" the DPH documents said...."

Nor does that.

Now...if anyone instructed others to lie, that crosses the line. As does prescribing without meeting, or at the least a medical history.

Yup.

Does that pull in something along the lines of "abetting?"

However...

... As does prescribing without meeting, or at the least a medical history. ...

In my view, this is the more serious aspect of what was allegedly done. I am not a doctor, however these type of actions seem to run against what I would say are responsible medical practices.

Good. There's a lot of medical people who should have their licenses revoked or put on a probationary status.

They represent a serious danger to their patients.

I once represented an estate sued by an MD for services rendered. The deceased had been sent home to die in peace, as best he could, by a national top shelf research oncologist.

The deceased found the MD who offered "alternative care" which provided him hope. One of the treatments was ingesting "Waters of the Nile," I s**t you not, that came at a price.

Some are a danger but where is the line of hope drawn?

This is along the lines of a pill pusher doctor that will issue scripts for Oxy by the hundreds per day.

Both are hurting and killing people through their actions.

A professional has an obligation of examining his patient and reviewing medical history before prescribing anything.

Let's make lemonade from lemons. Require of her 1,000 hours of community service in a local jail or prison. She will get to see first-hand the ravages of Covid, and the medical care folks working in those facilities could probably use the help...

She could do that while serving time in the prison.

#9 - good idea. But I would make that community service as an orderly. I wouldn't trust an angry doctor to treat patients.

I see and recognize the slippery slope nature of it.

But we're in extraordinary times and extraordinary measures are warranted IMO.

We, as a society, either stamp out this dangerous regression towards woo and voodoo magic "medicine" or it becomes just another facet in our decline to failed state status.
