Washington Doctor Forced to Undergo Re-Education for Prescribing Ivermectin to Covid Patients

The Washington Medical Board has ordered a veteran doctor to undergo re-education classes as punishment for prescribing his patients with ivermectin to treat Covid.

In addition, Dr. Wei-Hsung Lin has been forced to pay a $5000 fine.

Aside from taking medical education classes on approved COVID-19 treatment, Dr. Lin will now be subjected to annual “compliance” reviews because he prescribed ivermectin off-label to five Covid patients.

The Epoch Times reported that Lin prescribed the drug to five patients without discussing with them alternatives, such as experimental Covid mRNA vaccines, according to medical commission findings to which he stipulated.

One of the patients, a 71-year-old woman, attested ivermectin did not improve her condition, though she ultimately recovered.

A 69-year-old man said he and his wife ultimately opted not to take it after seeing negative information about it online.

According to the medical board, Lin’s “unprofessional” actions fell “below the standard of care.”

The commission has forbidden him from prescribing ivermectin in future Covid cases, under the threat of being stripped of his medical license.

The doctor must now review official federal Covid guidelines and take medical education classes on approved treatments for the virus.

After which, he will have to submit two 1,000-word papers on what he “learned” from his re-education.

The state also plans to subject him to annual “compliance” reviews.

These “extremely onerous” conditions “enormously increase the burden of practice and probably drive most physicians out of practice altogether,” Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians & Surgeons, told Epoch Times.

She advised doctors to, if possible, avoid practicing in Washington state entirely, where several doctors have previously lost appeals in similar cases.

“Dr. Lin was willing to fight this all the way, but when we looked the risk-reward matrix we felt — and he felt — it was in his best interest to go ahead and settle,” said attorney Pete Serrano of the Silent Majority Foundation, which represented Lin.

“He was ready to kind of close the chapter and move on with his life.”

By settling, he negotiated his punishment down from a $25,000 fine and other more severe penalties.

For years, the public health establishment has publicly urged Americans not to take ivermectin for Covid.

The federal government emphasizes the drug’s less common use to treat horses to frame its decades of far more common human use as a bizarre and dangerous practice.

In fact, ivermectin has long been approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for a variety of human ailments.

The drug is also included in the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Model List of Essential Medicines.

In 2015, the Nobel Committee for Physiology or Medicine, in its only award for treatments of infectious diseases since six decades prior, honored the discovery of the “wonder drug” ivermectin (IVM).

Like many medications, it has both human and animal applications.

The multifaceted has been drug deployed against some of the world’s most devastating tropical diseases.

However, human dosages for human ailments were not controversial until ivermectin started gaining notice in the context of Covid.

While experts continue to debate the Covid applications of ivermectin and the similarly maligned hydroxychloroquine (which is also FDA– and WHO-approved), promising studies as well as anecdotal reports of positive results have generated significant interest in them.

Additionally, ivermectin has been used and studied far longer than the Covid shots.

Ivermectin’s safety profiles are far better understood than the relatively new mRNA injections.

Despite the wealth of existing knowledge about the drugs as opposed to the evolving nature of Covid knowledge, families across the country have had to go to court to force hospitals to let them try the medications for their loved ones.

Meanwhile, well-respected doctors have had their reputations dragged through the dirt and their medical licenses threatened for prescribing it.

The issue has prompted states such as Missouri and Oklahoma to take action to protect medical freedom for those who wish to try and prescribe ivermectin.
