Dr. Peter McCullough, one of America’s leading anti-vax mandate doctors, recently spoke out in support of Dr. Meryl Nass, the Maine internist with Vermont connections who is being ordered by the state licensing board to undergo a psychological examination in connection with prescribing hydroxychloroquine for a Covid-19 patient.
As reported Monday in Vermont Daily Chronicle, a Jan. 11 order by the Maine Board of Licensure in Medicine directs Dr. Meryl Nass, an internist of 41 years who has testified to the Vermont Legislature in opposition to vaccine mandates, to “submit to a neuropsychological evaluation by a Board-selected psychologist on February 1, 2022.” The board also suspended her license to practice medicine.
The charges against Nass outlined in the order do not appear to demonstrate mental illness or incompetency. According to the licensing board, Nass told a pharmacist the hydroxychloroquine was to treat Lyme’s Disease, after being refused a script for treating Covid-19. The board said she has also been an outspoken critic of federal vaccination and masking policy.
McCullough, a Texas-based cardiologist and virologist, was being interviewed by Art Moore of WND News Center. The Rumble video can be seen as part of a news story on ClarkCountyToday.com.
Moore set up McCullough’s statement at the six minute, 30 second mark with the following observation: “the thing that struck me was that the board has ordered her to undergo a psychological examination. For those of us who are somewhat older, we remember when the Soviet Union did that to dissidents.”
“It’s unprecedented, it’s unjustified and in fact it’s illegal. “ McCullough said. “No medical board has had the courage to threaten me – and I hope they do. I’d prepare countersuits that would be hot and heavy.”
“Doctors using appropriately utilized, clinically indicated off-label use of medications is fully endorsed by the US FDA. Fully endorsed. Use of ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, fully endorsed by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons home treatment guide,” McCullough said.
“Dr. Nass is in very good standing,” McCullough continued. “I think the medical board is going to pay a very heavy price for that overreach. She’s simply being compassionate and responsible, and fulfilling her hippocratic oath. The doctors who should be examined are the ones who are denying patient care.”
