Texas Medical Board Suspends Doctor for
Choosing to Do No Harm

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 4/4/2023 8:37:36 AM

Hippocrates wrote, in Of the Epidemics, “The physician must…. have two special objects in view with regard to disease, namely, to do good or to do no harm.” (snip) The Texas Medical Board, however, does not see it that way. Because Dr. Eric Hensen of Palestine, Texas, did not universally force his ear-nose-and-throat patients to block their airways by masking, the TMB has suspended his medical license. So, the medical tyranny of the TMB continues. (Earlier this month, the TMB declared war on Dr. Mary Talley Bowden for prescribing Ivermectin off-label.)

I suspect there is a lot more to this story than in the article. Traditionally, State Medical Boards operate under one driving principle, to protect really bad doctors from the good citizens of their state. To discipline a doctor means they went beyond just being a bad doctor.

Gov Abbott better check to see if he is responsible for appointing members of the board. He may need to fire some people and get a different source of recommendations for theur replacements.

I've availed myself of Dr Hensen's care pre-COVID. Very no nonsense and knowledgable. It's hard to find good doctors in small towns within a largely rural area. I seriously doubt that he is really a "bad doctor" as #2 suggests. Even in Texas, a state with well above average governance, you can find pockets of progressivism within state institutions headquartered in Austin. Considering the national-level scourge of left wing, politicized medicine and science, I give no benefit of the doubt to the TMB. Dr. Hensen might think about running for state or U S representative, if he is prevented from practicing medicine. I believe he'd make a very credible candidate for the state or national legislatures.

I have one doctor who never wore a mask nor required his staff or patients to wear masks. He got a shot and a booster and that was the extent of his protection.

Gee, back in the day when I was in pharmaceuticals, the rule was unless a drug was contraindicated (use prohibited), a physician could use a drug outside of its labeling if there was literature backing up that usage. As the drug rep. I (or my company) couldn't promote it outside of its approved labeling (the dreaded "package insert,"), although a company's medical department may have had a little more leeway there. Many drugs, especially those whose patents have expired, have been found to have other advantages besides its FDA-approved labeling. Once a drug goes "generic," there is little financial incentive for a manufacturer to spend the millions of dollars for research and the government bureaucracy for approval as the expense will never be recouped by that manufacturer. One of the drugs that I sold was HCQ under the brand name of Plaquenil. There are now many generic equivalents of that drug, but even in the early to mid-90s, it was the only brand of the drug on the market (although the patent had long since lapsed). In fact, that drug was found to have a beneficial effect on patients with remuatiod arthritis "by accident." European and American missionaries traveling to Africa and South America regularly took HCQ as an anti-malarial drug. Some of these missionaries had RA and noticed that their symptoms improved while on mission. When they would return home and stop taking HCQ, their disease would return. Further research would confirm the cause-and-effect relationship of the drug to symptom relief. Maybe HCQ or ivermecton isn't the hoiy grail for the relief or cure of COVID, but it should be one of the drugs in a physician's arsenal for treatment. But I guess they aren't the drugs and vaccines that folks like Dr. Fraudci and his ilk profit from.

Back in the winter of 2020, I worked with a surgeon who told me he got himself some Ivermectin, and if he became symptomatic, that’s what he would use. He told me this after another doctor we knew died from Covid-19. So apparently doctors have known for sometime that this works and we’re out in the position of losing a license they worked and studied so hard for or saving as many patients as possible before their livelihood was taken away.

Surprised to hear this was Texas, but perhaps I should not be. Cities and counties can be much more liberal than the states they reside in. Slightly different subject. Heard of a land developer proposing to build seven large houses on a plot of land. The county is listening to competing proposals to develop the land into 150-180 lost cost houses. Many people unhappy about this because traffic already is bad. Probably more crime too. This is in Florida, btw.

Years ago worked for an attorney who represented doctors before the Texas Board of Medical Examiners - I was pretty shocked at the doctors from which they didn’t take licenses away. After reviewing board members….well, not all are doctors. A few lawyers, realtors…people who’ve bought influence. All very dispiriting. I have lupus, take hydroxychloroquine. I did research on Covid before everything was blocked on what was effective in prevention and what horrors could happen with the spike protein (which truly frightened me). I didn’t consult with anyone, it became apparent to me very quickly that (1) most doctors had not done their own research, even those who took part in the trials; and, 2) they either blindly trusted the CDC or they were threatened by the hospitals they were associated with, who in turn were threatened with the government withholding monies. Only one doctor tried to lecture me (an orthopedist), and it was when Covid was pretty much gone. I was exposed several times, never got sick. Very, very maddening thing. Very destructive of our medical system and the trust it once enjoyed. May these doctors be successful in their suit against the Board.

I firmly believe that Abbott and Paxton are going to have a field day with this!!! Like a lot of people, I was disappointed in Abbott about his initial response to the Covid faux-demic. But I honestly believe he learned his lesson very quickly, and his actions in all areas since that time have been solidly conservative and pro-Texas. He will be all over this one!!!

Just another sign of the destruction of the health care industry. A more shocking report would be of one of our institutions that is not in shambles. It is not clear to me that the massive excess deaths r from the jab or people's loss trust in the health care services. I do know that it is hard to see a doctor so it may be the jab.

Get the names and practice locations (if any of these are actual practicing docs) for all the board members and there should be advertisements that "This doctor is a dangerous, pedantic, overbearing, power mad totalitarian". Billboards with photos would be good.

The indictment of President Trump is unprecedented; no President, former or current has ever been indicted before.
