Governor Strickland and Speaker Armond Budish are currently ‘sitting’ on the most corrupt, fraudulent and ‘cheating’ State Medical Board in the US – in the history of State Medical Boards – where the Ohio legislature won’t do reforms and statutes of limitations for false complaints (like every other ‘crime’ has), where the legislature won’t stop the Medical Board from ordering multiple fixed kangaroo-court psychiatric evaluations on women physicians – over 20 years – woman MDs who complain of medical care paradigm problems & sexual harassments, where the legislature won’t fine the ‘cheating’ of its own expert evaluators, pay-as-they-sign ‘confidential’ complainers, and hired ‘guns’ – the ridiculous farces going on at the State Medical Board of Ohio or the obvious lying in case testimonies (no fines for perjury in Columbus – the biggest liar wins). In Ohio the state legislature allows that the State Medical Board takes women physician licenses (not males) for being a ‘bad patient;’ disagreeing ‘too much’ about incompetence, malpractice, and the ‘boys’ being boys’ care done on the women physicians in Ohio. You are supposed to accept that the boys will make fun of you, tell you to come to office appointments when they have no fracture casting materials and just want to ‘play,’ and then if you lose your R hand so what? – it’s not Speaker Budish’s hand or Governor Strickland’s. Speaker Budish thinks that this is ‘ok,’ and not his legislative concern – the boys get to play. And he will have to support the agenda to change, and tell legislators that he will support reforms – so far he support guy status quo. Even when those falsely accused women MDs then can’t get medical care for decades as their credibility is gone – and the complaint is still ‘confidential’ – it’s a Columbus joke. Careers are ended for disagreeing with Dr. Nice – who Geauga Hospital took off their active staff prior to 1990 – but there is no law or reporting for this. It was ‘confidential.’ What did women MDs in Ohio go to Medical School for? To have their licenses taken by Anita Steinbergh DO’s (currently on the Medical Board for almost 20 years now) ridiculous requirements and eccentricities? Anita Steinbergh DO thinks that woman MDs should just let the male MDs have sex with you, abuse patients, abuse & even bruise you in anger – it’s Oslerian aequanimitas – keping calm amid a storm of emergency medicine, toxicology, intensive care and ‘boys being boys.’ But the male MDs in Ohio are supposed to be ‘men’ – does Anita or Rick (Whitehouse) know this? In Dr. Michael Keith’s office at MetroHealth in Cleveland Ohio, women physician patients can get beaten up if they confront him about his ‘experimental’ care – care that didn’t have a chance in hell of working, but it was an ‘experiment’ that he felt he could try on you as a woman MD – because woman MDs in Ohio can’t complain about colleagues. So women MDs in Ohio get experimental care and have to do their own care – which is difficult with fractures. The State of Ohio admits that the ‘boys being boys’ medical care goes on, but that women physicians need ‘help’ to accept it – counseling, psychiatric diagnosis and treatment, etc. And this is not about their excellent patient care, which is only possible if they can disagree with the boy MDs. Any physician impairment diagnosis that the Ohio Medical Board wants, the Board gets. That wasn’t what I, or any woman physician, graduated from Medical School for (DO school they obviously play the games); to get diagnosed & treated, with no diagnostic criteria, so that the boys can play? The psychiatric evaluations & approved evaluators (Dr. Phillip Resnick) at the Ohio State Medical Board don’t believe in diagnostic criteria, in allowing medical, orthopedic or gyn care of women physicians, or in any kind of fairness – the Board is absolute power – worse than Henry VIII – you get your medical license severed not your head. You lose your health, your profession, your career, your family, your marriage – all to the system. Reforms are needed for ethics complaints in Alaska, reforms are needed for woman physician ‘confidential’ license complaints in Ohio. Physician complaints in Ohio remain ‘confidential,’ with no statute of limitations for disclosure and resolution of false complaints – unlike any other ‘crime’ in Ohio. To be a woman physician in Ohio, falsely accused because you tried to get the ‘right’ care for yourself and the boys didn’t know women’s medical care or about thyroid problems, is a career-ending crime – worse than homicide, rape, drug abuse, or patient mutilation. Male physicians in Ohio, with few exceptions and none on the State Medical Board of Ohio, don’t know women’s endocrinology except about sexual response. Whereas even in former Communisty East Germany, the infamous Stasi files (1950-1990) are ‘open.’ But nothing is ‘open’ in Ohio even from 1990-2 as there is no statute of limitations – the Medical Board is still trying to prove a case in my case, and every time that I call Eileen screams that she thinks that they NOW have a case even though I haven’t been practicing for 18 years of insanity, rule changing and case fishing. Nothing ends at the Ohio Board of endless cold cases – where Speaker Armond Budish looks the other way and has to ok slot machines to plug the Ohio monetary Board deficits. In Ohio, there is ‘double-jeopardy’ of false physician complaints, no criteria for investigations & evaluations that is objective – there are even disciplines & suspensions for disagreeing with malpractice care that ‘friend’s of Members on the State Medical Board do – with changing of the confidential physician files – for decades in my false case. You can’t get clear of the Ohio State Medical Board, you can’t get the ‘confidential’ file that you need to answer the complaint, redeem your career, and get on with your career – or even get health care while you continue to disagree with the Ohio State Medical Board. The Ohio State Medical Board is an arbitrary self-serving Medical Board, with no rules that can’t be broken or changed, and no external review – because no one can get the ‘confidential’ files. It’s much worse than what was going down with Marc Dann and the Ohio Attorney General’s Office; Mr. Whitehouse is a much worse administrator with no external review or disagreements allowed – he makes Marc Dann look like a Democratic ‘saint.’ And your whole life then becomes a matter for the State Medical Board of Ohio to discuss at wasteful meetings – women physician sex lives, their medical problems that have no bearing on their practice of medicine, their pleasing & referring to certain ‘right’ male physicians. This has been discussed ad nauseum in my false case for complaining about Dr. Nice – for 20 years almost. My case at the State Medical Board of Ohio (1992-2009), and others, are a mess of misplaced good intentions that are wasting millions of dollars/year on false cases, disciplines, suspensions – and even suspensions that have nothing to do with a physician’s patient care. If you make too much of Dr. Timothy Nice fracture care, his comments, or his requests for referrals of patients – then you lose your medical license for the rest of your career. Dr. Nice lost his active staff privileges at Geagua Community Hospital prior to 1990 for abuses of patients, colleagues, and bad orthopedic results that the hospital could no longer tolerate. Instead he’s continued to abuse patients, colleagues and have bad results at Hillcrest Hospital under the auspices of Cleveland Clinic Foundation – where his wife’s money counts. In Ohio it is a Medical Board discipline to be a ‘bad patient’ and disagree about wrong care of colleagues to a physician colleague. Every other hospital and Medical Board acknowledged the problem – that physicians getting care from colleague physicians are often mistreated because the physician patient is supposed to do the care & workup – but the Ohio State Medical Board. In 1999, Mr. Tom Dilling – the then Executive Director of the State Medical Board – contacted my lawyer with the question about allowing that my case be opened for reforms. Dilling admitted to the lawyer that there was a ‘pile’ of probable false cases, that needed opening so that there could be external review and reforms. This offer lasted 5 minutes before someone told him that the legislature hadn’t made a statute of limitations for cases at the State Medical Board of Ohio – so that nothing could be opened for discussion, fair resolution and reforms. Currently the State of Ohio keeps lying until they find a case against women physicians who have no patient complaints – physicians who just came to their attention because they criticized the care and practices of another male physician – a physician ‘hitting’ on the woman physician for personal favors, pesonal needs, free office space, and free referrals. It’s time to open those probably false discipline & medical license suspension cases at the State Medical Board of Ohio; those from 1999 and those since. It’s time that physician files and complaints at the State Medical Board were transparent, verified in a legal sense before being acted upon, and that there was allowed discussion before complaints were acted upon. My complaint about Dr. Timothy Nice in 1991 was just that – that he expected all kinds of things that I couldn’t do for him, that he wouldn’t discuss why he refused to refer and care for ‘simple’ wrist fractures, ie why he told other physicians not to care for me and that I didn’t deserve care or blood work. I had told him several weeks earlier that I wasn’t ‘interested.’ My fractures turned out to have a ‘rare’ endocrine cause – to be due to a neglected thyroid problem that was only diagnosed a decade later in Washington DC after another fracture. In Ohio I didn’t deserve blood work – not one test before my medical license was suspended for disagreeing with care that I would not be allowed to do to any patient – even in Ohio. Both Governor Strickland and Speaker Armond Budish have wives – both should be concerned about women’s medical care allowing ‘care-to-function.’ Both should be concerned about the waste of time, money, careers and the health of women physicians falsely complained about. Even 2 decades later, I can’t admit a false case when I don’t know all the facts of that case, or who accused me of what, when there are/were no patient complaints, when I disagreed about care practices that should have been outlawed in Ohio long before 1990. The problem: the Ohio legislature needs to address the lack of a statute of limitations at the State Medical Board of Ohio and reforms to include penalties for false complaints & cheating on evaluations/testing, verification of physician complaints and signatures (several of the physicians who complained about me I had never met, seen or heard of), and open files like the Stasi files in East German. If the Communists can do transparency, then Ohio should be able to handle that democratic idea.
