COVID physician suing hospital ‘to bring medicine back to doctors’ – IOTW Report

WND: A physician and medical researcher who is suing his Virginia hospital for preventing him from treating COVID-19 patients with effective drugs that have become politically charged said his effort is on behalf of physicians across the United States and around the world whose relationship with their patients has been sabotaged.

Dr. Paul Marik, a professor at Eastern Virginia Medical School, said it’s “completely outrageous” that the hospital in Norfolk where he serves as ICU director is telling physicians what they can prescribe and not prescribe, violating the doctor-patient relationship and the Hippocratic Oath.

“This is really unprecedented in the world,” he said in a podcast interview with Dr. Mobeen Syed. “The doctor at the bedside decides what’s best for his or her patient. He takes responsibility or the patient. He understands the patient. He individualizes the patient.”

Ultimately, he said, hospital administrators “who have limited or no experience with COVID, are telling an experienced clinician how to practice medicine.” MORE
