***For some time I have tried to persuade the Advocate to investigate my evidence of fraud and abuse of power by the medical board, but they have not. They were willing, however, to jump on the sensational"news" disseminated by a wicked medical board.Robinson testified under oath at recent hearings of the House Committee on Public Health (recordedand kept in committee archives, available for viewing) that the medical board does not "shop for experts". Her behavior demonstrates otherwise.Several Texas physicians who have been harmed by the TMB are eager to testify, under oath in publicproceedings, to their own evidence that the board shops until it finds an expert who will fraudulently dotheir biddings. When the board is lucky enough to find an ethical expert who honestly believes there issome truth in their allegations, they refuse to allow him to reevaluate a licensee when new evidencemight be contradictory to a previous conclusion.Scott Freshour has told my attorney that you are
expert and they do not want me reevaluated.However, they repeatedly refer to you as the "evaluating physician". Until now, they have never mentioned your opinions were their property or that they have any authority not to disclose evidence toyou. Consistent with the concept of an evaluating physician rather than a "board physicians" is the factthat I have agreed to see you and, in fact, I pay you for your services. You are bound by ethicalconsiderations to find out and testify to the truth.At our most recent visit, you made suggestions which Dr. Brams, my treating physician, and I agreedwere reasonable and would assist you in determining the truth.We have made those changes and wish to have you make your own conclusion as to the results.This is especially important since Dr. William Reid repeatedly relied on your opinions to conclude thatI might be psychotic.If you had questioned my sanity prior to my most recent visit with you, you probably would have askedme to show you some evidence which might allow you to determine the truth.Hopefully you recall the Sixth Amendment of the US Constitution:
"In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right ... to be informed of the natureand cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to havecompulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor ...
and the Fourth Amendment:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, againstunreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, butupon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the placeto be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Although the board has not charged me with anything criminal, it has used a felony charge for which Ihave not been found guilty as evidence I am a danger to the public. I am not aware that the board hasbeen charged to find a doctor "innocent until proven guilty".
