Physician Assistant License Suspended Due to COVID Actions | Washington News
WASHOUGAL, Wash. (AP) – The Washington Medical Commission has suspended the license of a pediatric healthcare provider in southwest Washington.
The suspension came this week after an investigation into more than a dozen complaints against medical assistant Scott C. Miller, who runs Miller Family Pediatrics in Washougal, reported The Columbian.
The complaints say he interfered with the care of COVID-19 hospital patients, engaged in a threatening public campaign against hospitals and doctors, and also prescribed drugs without seeing patients.
The commission’s findings indicate that Miller “also launched a public campaign touting the use of ivermectin in the treatment of coronavirus disease,” despite no reliable clinical evidence showing that the drug is effective in treating COVID- 19.
Miller also spoke out publicly against the mask and vaccine warrants, including at a school board meeting in Camas in May, and on social media, according to the state.
The commission said it was taking immediate action to address an immediate danger to public health.
Miller has 20 days to appeal the suspension. The newspaper said he was not available for comment.
