Mark R. Geier - Miscellaneous
BOARD AWARE OF ISSUE:
QUOTES FROM DISCIPLINARY ACTION DOCUMENTS:
--"The Board determined that the physician's conduct constituted a substantial likelihood of a risk of serious harm to the public health, safety and welfare based on the physician's experimental treatment of autistic children with Lupron."
--"With regard to administering Lupron to autistic children, the Respondent has been quoted as saying ‘If you want to call it a nasty name, call it chemical castration. If you want to call it something nice, say you are lowering testosterone'."
--"The complainant alleged the Respondent promotes the use of Lupron as a treatment for autism in children. The complainant alleged that the Respondent…practices outside the scope of his expertise and the prevailing standard care for autism…experimented on children without a rational scientific theory or the supervision of a qualified review board."
--"The Respondent endangers autistic children and exploits their parents by administering to the children a treatment protocol that has a known substantial risk of serious harm and which is neither consistent with evidence-based medicine nor generally accepted in the relevant scientific community."
TIME LAG ON ACTION:
4 YEARS, 8 MONTHS
