Calling physicians names when they call the Governor's Office, hanging up, telling a MD to 'get another psych eval' - when the US needs good physicians in many rural areas (even Ohio), and the Medical Board started the fight to protect the negligences of a Board Member and two associates - is not ok. The woman physician in question is hugely brilliant, knows her Internal Medicine, and is a researcher who was supposed to start a Fellowship in Bone Metabolism at the time - so Governor Kasich continues the stupidity because he CAN'T REVIEW THE CASE.
Governor Kasich can laugh in the background, appoint the Ya-Ya Girls to the Medical Board, and can't get his head around even high-speed rail transit to benefit the educational facilities in Ohio - the great Colleges & Universities who are at a distance from even good state applicants at times. No one in Kasich's office brought this up - they just hang up.
There is real disease that needs cures - multiple sclerosis - and real problems at the Medical Board in Ohio. The Medical Board acts wimsically on 'confidential' reports & complaints - protecting friends. The woman MD had no patient complaints, her fractures were left uncasted & mistreated to 'show her who was boss' - the boys. Wrong x-rays were ordered, even splints had to be obtained out-of-state. Georgetown Student Health, when she went for the graduate degrees, had to do the blood work that Cleveland Clinic & University Hospitals for some reason could not order.
The Medical Board took her license on provisional - without allowing her to finish even the physical therapy for her fractures, without finishing the Mayo Clinic workup, without blood work (nothing came back in Ohio), with the wrong diagnosis as to the cause of the fractures = huge liability for any Medical Board. Blood work can be ordered, and come back, at Georgetown Student Health - but not at University Hospitals of Cleveland or Cleveland Clinic? That's a conundrum.
But the answer is not to waste her life and call the MD names - that's juvenile. The answer is to get her back to work, back working on her PhD in breast cancer treatments.
The problem with the name calling is that it is adolescent - not even - like the boys digitally raping the high school girl in Steubenville, it is an assault on the woman's dignity & achievements.
The Medical Board is liable is the problem - they made a mistake. So get a non-suit agreement? And unless Governor Kasich gets the story straight, he just continues the injustice. More is expected of Governor Kasich than name-calling, and psych eval nonsense. The woman is the loveliest woman MD that is around - that's the problem - she's kind, goes out of her way to even do home visits & take a needy patient to the hospital. That was the problem - this woman MD set a different bar standard - she wasn't just interested in the money.
But name calling, insult throwing, is not going to improve or reform the State Medical Board of Ohio. New appointees with different perspectives are needed to fill the expired Member seats.
