“Maine’s Board of Licensure in Medicine voted last week to conduct a deeper investigation into Dr. Meryl Nass, from Ellsworth,” said the Daily Mail. “The board also voted to suspend her license for 30 days and have her undergo a psychiatric evaluation.”
Nass, 70 , admitted to lying about the use of hydroxychloroquine in order to obtain a prescription, saying that her patient had Lyme disease.
The drug was widely available and treated for a broad variety of illnesses before leftist turned then-President Donald Trump’s advocacy of it into a political wedge.
Evidence has suggested that those who take it under a doctor’s care, alongside other medications, have seen positive results in treating COVID.
Nass has been in practice in Ellsworth, Maine, since 1997. She and has a long history of opposing vaccines and allegedly spreading “misinformation” about COVID, according to local NBC NewsCenter Maine.
The state Board of Licensure said Nass “may be unable to practice medicine with reasonable skill and safety to her patients by reason of mental illness, alcohol intemperance, excessive use of drugs, narcotics, or as a result of a mental or physical condition interfering with the competent practice of medicine,” said MedPage Today.
She recently said her lawyer told her she would be stripped of her license because of her opposition to vaccines and off-schedule treatments, said the Daily Mail, adding that she has called the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention a “criminal agency.”
MedPage Today said that she has blasted the federal government for not being more forthcoming about less severe and asymptomatic cases of COVID and said that widespread vaccination “doesn’t make scientific or medical sense” against COVID.
“The media has also engaged in misinformation surrounding Ivermectin, with the Associated Press having to apologize for falsely claiming that 70 per cent of calls to the Mississippi Poison Control Center were about people ingesting ivermectin to treat COVID-19,” said Summit News.
But no one takes away the media’s license to lie.
