Blighted Corrupt and a Regulatory Nightmare Maryland has seen better days

Blighted Corrupt and a Regulatory Nightmare Maryland has seen better days

Maryland is a distressed state. Submerged in crime, drugs, onerous taxes and legislated efforts to control every action of its population, the Old Line State needs realignment. Baltimore, Maryland’s largest City, has the unique distinction of having the most murders in the country, based on population size. Opioids deaths reach into the thousands with the rate continuing to rise. Recently legislated efforts to put Marijuana in the hands of a large segment of the populace will only add to the addiction crisis. To complete the State’s nightmare the government, along with its Governor who ran on a Republican platform yet acts like a Democrat, are choking businesses with onerous taxes and socialistic style legislation. Maryland is a mess. Every segment of the State needs mending. The quick answer to Maryland’s problems is to blame the federal government and President Trump. Yet, the true nature of Maryland’s problems, are home grown. They are caused by feckless politicians who ignore their decompensating state to keep the flood of entitlements flowing. Taxes, crime and bad legislation are on the increase as Maryland victimizes its businesses to keep the cash streaming into State coffers.

Nobility is not a trait of Maryland administrative entities. Honor left these cauldrons of deceit decades ago. Managed by political appointees merit has left the stage leaving behind an obnoxious stench of social conformity. Medical care is has suffered throughout the Maryland by an influx of lesser trained foreign physicians. Worse the Maryland Board of Physicians is managed similar to the Politburo of the old Soviet Union whose Executive head is nothing less than deranged in actions and words. Along with a corrupt Medical Board the State Government is pushing to keep Obamacare alive by levying high fees on insurance companies to assure a free ride for the entitlement crowd. Paradoxically those fees will be passed down to those of us who already pay extremely high insurance rates. For the illicit entries into this country Maryland has a gift for you. Once you acquire your illegal driver’s license the State intends to automatically register you to vote in order to keep the Democrats in power for eternity plus a week. Maryland’s dishonest government, from border to border, is a liberal’s dream and a nightmare for private businesses and those who work outside the government. In the event you are considering a move to this state think twice and see a Psychiatrist. Maryland has nothing to offer except left wing courts, untenable crime, outrageous taxes and oppressive regulations that keep your pockets thin while fattening those of politicians and their political appointees. Remember this reporter told you so.

Maryland Board of Physicians Deceptive Unscrupulous and Dishonest

 

Maryland Board of Physicians’ Deceptive Unscrupulous and Dishonest

 

 

 

Shadows of Soviet style judicial behavior have fallen once again on the corrupt Maryland Board of Physicians. Hiding behind its shield of legal immunity this Soviet era administrative authority destroys physicians’ careers without verifying the essence of the charges against their intended targets. Ironically the old maxim first we will give him a fair trial and then we will hang him applies here. In this case the trial was biased and the hanging predetermined. The level of corruption is so deep even the author of this piece has difficulty getting his mind around the following events.

 

 

 

In good faith the author filed a multiple page application with the Maryland Board of Physicians, in the latter half of 2016, for medical license reinstatement. The reinstatement document is fraught with requests for private information which arguably is none of this Board’s concern. Nevertheless the application was filed. On the final page a certification must be signed with several stipulations. Nowhere on this document does it state a third party, off the premises and outside the Board’s purview, will be sent this very private document to review. The Board’s administrative staff sent this application for reinstatement to the Attorney General’s Office without the applicant’s knowledge or written/oral consent. To make matters worse this document was given over Robert Gilbert Esq., who is part of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office, a person the applicant had sued twice in the past. Mr. Gilbert’s took it upon himself to exact his own brand of vengeful justice when he wrote two false reports to the Board in an effort to block the applicant’s reinstatement.

 

 

 

Mr. Gilbert’s reports contained erroneous, false and outright fabricated statements concerning the applicant, which the Board made no attempt to verify. Mr. Gilbert’s statements were unfounded and without merit. This corrupt Board went so far to have ex parte contact with Mr. Gilbert which displays the level of collusion between these two parties. In a Public Information Act (PIA) request the Board’s legal counsel and its administrative minions denied the existence of a transcript or other records of the December 21, 2016 reinstatement hearing. The cover up is intense to protect themselves from their fraudulent series of actions against Mark Davis, MD. Worse, a letter from this Board, in answer to the applicant’s PIA request, challenges him to go to court to obtain the documents for which he petitioned this corrupt Maryland State administrative entity. The Board’s counsel is well aware the immunity shield will be claimed in court to protect themselves from their illicit actions. A secondary technique will be employed stating information requested by the petitioner is privileged. Maryland’s left wing Circuit and Appellate courts are inclined to decide in favor of the Board of Physicians even when the information they send to a requesting party is patently false. In my own case and dozens of other physicians who had to tolerate the Board’s corrupt activities I watched in horror as Maryland State Courts blindly fell on the sword for this unethical, dishonest and patently unscrupulous agency.

 

 

 

 

 

Chief Executive of this abusive agency is not a physician. She is political appointee with a bankrupt mind and a vicious pen. Releasing a final opinion to the author, based on nothing more than hearsay and innuendo, this mentally destitute woman displayed why she needs to be shown the door. In this final opinion the rhetoric is so toxic I am embarrassed to release it in this first in a series of articles. Nevertheless the author is being framed as the worst physician on the planet and the lowest of human beings. After coming to Maryland on a Public Health scholarship and never having one penny paid out against him in a malpractice claim in forty years this physician became a target of an errant Board which denied him every level of due process. Under the tutelage of this offensive woman the Board has turned a blind eye to the toxins being spewed into Marylanders by so-called pain clinics. In the event a physician is from certain culture or works for a favored University the Board gives him/her a tap on the wrist if a complaint filed against them. With approximately 40,000 licenses under the auspices of the Maryland Board of Physicians a few hundred physicians’ careers destroyed by this entity are only considered collateral damage.

 

 

 

The Maryland Board of Physicians needs new leadership. Similar to a gunslinger   the Board’s hierarchy measures it successes in the number of physicians it can bring down. All physicians who are called before this massively corrupt Board should never ever appear there unless they have “counsel” well informed on the legal chicanery the Board’s Attorney General attack dogs utilize to destroy their careers. In the next article we will discuss who exactly are the miscreants perpetrating fraudulent practices on physicians and denying them due process.

Public Information Request to the Maryland Board of Physicians Drop Dead

 

Public Information Request to the Maryland Board of Physicians Drop Dead

 

 

 

Marylander’s have lost control of their government. Administrative agencies, exemplified by the Maryland Board of Physicians, hide behind carefully crafted regulations enabling these public entities to keep their perversions and malicious behaviors hidden from the public. Reminiscent of pre Glasnost days, before the Soviet empire tumbled, physicians requesting information on hearings and administrative assaults from this corrupt entity, meet a stone wall when making a Public Information Access Request. Citing lawyer-client privilege, immunity, exemptions from state law and more the Board of Physicians disables physicians’ lives, at will, then jumps behind a veil of secrecy. Most recently this physician requested records from the Board of Physicians, for a bogus hearing he participated in during the month of December in 2016, the reply in legalese: Drop Dead.

 

 

 

Lawyers employed by Maryland Attorney General’s Office run cover for Board of Physicians’ members. To protect themselves the Medical Board engages these lawyers to perform two tasks: First, prosecute the maximum number of physicians they can to keep their sanction numbers high and secondly to protect themselves when physicians seek redress from their illicit actions.  When a Maryland physician’s career is injured or terminated by the corrupt Board of Physicians, this administrative entity encourages doctors to take them to court. Why? In the greatest majority of cases Maryland’s left leaning courts side with their administrative departments, no matter where the facts fall. This Board cares little about facts only results. A few physicians thrown under the proverbial rug, who cares.

 

 

 

The Soviet Union has been gone for nearly 3 decades, yet its corrupt Star Chamber type tactics still survive. Maryland has adopted these processes within the structure of its regulations to suppress any rebuke it receives from a citizen. The laws of Maryland give preferences to some while others meet blunt force authoritarianism. Maryland’s complex legal system buries many. Some, like myself, just refuse to roll over and play dead. The next chapter will play out soon on a legal battlefield.

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?

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.

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.

Unmasking the Maryland’s 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.

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 and the Board’s response. Both follow this article.  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

 

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.

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 case 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.
