Physicians For Informed Consent Update On Enforcement of Medical Exemption Law

Hands tied breakLegal Update re Enforcement of Medical Exemption Law

PIC Supporters,

I am writing to provide you an update on our medical license defense for PIC Physician Ken Stoller, MD, who has been wrongly accused by the Medical Board of California of writing 10 medical exemptions without an adequate medical basis. The truth is that Dr. Stoller performed competently and professionally according to his discretion as an integrative physician. Indeed, the whole case depends on whether the Medical Board even recognizes integrative medicine in the field of vaccine medical exemptions, or whether there is only one standard of care (i.e., the CDC standard).

Dr. Stoller’s case will go to trial March 16, 2020, and it is particularly significant for its precedential value – this will be the first trial before the California Medical Board on the medical exemption question, namely, whether a doctor can rely on the Alternative Medicine defense for writing exemptions under SB277 that did not follow CDC guidelines.

First, click here to read my witness statement in support of Dr. Stoller as an integrative physician following the integrative standard of care.

Second, PIC is continuing to work with and support Dr. Stoller’s excellent defense lawyer Rick Jaffe. Rick is very experienced. With skill and credibility, Rick is asserting the Alternative Medicine defense for Dr. Stoller, which is supported by additional witness statements from PIC Physicians Dr. Sutton and Dr. Neuenschwander.

Third, I will provide you another newsletter update as we have more information. We expect to receive a final decision from the administrative law judge by the end of March.

Lastly, you can please show your support for Dr. Stoller by making a donation to his legal defense fund, and also sharing this link with your patients who are similarly concerned:

Thank you,

Greg Glaser

Has the AMA and AAP taken a position to support or oppose Dr Stoller's legal challenge. The AAP site claims 67,000 members … surely those 67.000 members have been informed of their support or opposition to Dr. Stoller?

Imagine … 67.000 pediatricians and only a small handful of them are openly supporting Dr. Stoller.
