Complaint Review: Governor John Kasich
Governor John Kasich77 South High Street, 30th Floor Riffe Center Columbus, Ohio United States of America
Governor John Kasich State Medical Board allowed to take the licenses of women MDs who object to admittedly bad medical care with 'confidential' complaints signed by the physicians providing the bad care - no restriction Columbus, Ohio
It's past 9/11, and there has to be transparency about medical license suspensions at the State Medical Board of Ohio - you can't get a job otherwise. Only the state of Texas continues this obsolete system, and Texas passed a bill last September to start reforms to limit 'confidential' physician complaints.
Women physicians do not give up the right to choose their health care options, or their provider, and when things are not as they seem - they have a right to ask to be referred. It's not a game, and personal health care choices for better care should not be refused because the State Medical Board wants you to get care from an orthopedic without his Boards, or a physician who won't order the standard blood work.
Choosing that a physician 'friend' of a Board Member is NOT the 'right' physician, should not be a cause of licensure suspension. If a physician will not send records, refer, or continue care - then that physician has to refer - just like with every other patient. If a woman physician chooses health care providers, or choices, that aren't 'friends' of Medical Board Members - that should not make a difference about a physician's license. You don't give up health care autonomy when you get an MD as a woman.
Governor Kasich needs to do some serious reforms at the State Medical Board of Ohio - he promised to do them. Meanwhile, he continues to waste the lives and careers of good physicians, physicians who just didn't choose the 'right' health care providers or go along with admittedly bad or wrong care for themselves just to 'take one for the system.' MDs have to be able to get the best care in a timely manner because of patient obligations.
