False Alarm in the LA Times

Friends and Patients,

The LA Times and KTLA reported on Jan 28 that my medical license had been revoked, though they’ve apparently updated closer to the truer scenario!  Other media around the country picked up the story that I had my license revoked, but many have not corrected the error.

In fact, The Medical Board had ordered my license revoked as of 5pm, Jan 4th.  However, at 4:20pm that day, Judge Harold Kahn in the Superior Court of San Francisco issued a stay of the revocation pending my appeal.  For reasons beyond my control, the written order was not signed in a timely manner, so the Board figured it could ignore the verbal order.  This led to the LA Times article, and all the follow ups.  However, the written order was finally signed by Judge Kahn on the same day the LA Times article came out.

The Administrative Law Judge who ordered the revocation, ruled I had made the wrong diagnosis on a child to whom I issued the cannabis recommendation, and felt that was enough basis to revoke my license “to protect the public.”  He ruled the kid just had tantrums, not mental illness.  I believe I will win on appeal, for a long list of reasons.  One main reason is that the child was given an updated version of the same diagnosis, in a mental hospital on a psychiatric emergency basis, one and a half years after our last visit.  Even the Board’s expert agreed that proves I got the diagnosis right.

Sorry for the shock.  I believe I will prevail.

Vitamin D: An Open Letter to the NY Times

Dear NY Times Editor, Your article (8/18/18) on the shadowy money behind the sunshine vitamin, Vitamin D3, was wrong on almost everything, in my humble opinion. I have been one of the doctors on the Vitamin D3 bandwagon for many years.  I make no money from any manufacturers or lab companies.  In my practice andRead More

Medical Cannabis or Recreational Marijuana

Now that “recreational marijuana” has taken effect in California, many people are confused about if they still need the medical cannabis letter of recommendation. It all depends…  If you are only using small amounts, in your home, perhaps you don’t need the medical cannabis letter.  However, if your medical needs require larger amounts, and youRead More

Naturally, The Body Heals Itself

We can heal ourselves naturally.  In fact, it is natural for the body to heal itself.  That’s what it does all the time. Except sometimes it doesn’t, then we’re sick!  So, either we must remove the cause of the problem, the block of the body healing itself, or we need to add support in theRead More
