Physician accused of performing unwanted hysterectomies in an ICE detention center not boardcertified OB-GYN
Dr. Mahendra Amin, the physician accused of performing unwanted or unnecessary gynecological procedures at an immigrant detention facility, is not certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG), The Daily Beast reported.
On Monday, several immigration advocacy groups representing a whistleblower filed a complaint to the Office of the Inspector General, alleging "jarring medical neglect" and the occurrence of unwanted and unnecessary hysterectomies at the Irwin County Detention Center in Ocilla, Georgia.
In the complaint, Dawn Wooten, a licensed practical nurse who was previously employed by the center and is represented by Project South and Government Accountability Project, reported witnessing a large number of hysterectomies performed on immigrant women detained in the facility.
"Everybody he sees has a hysterectomyjust about everybody," Wooten said of one doctor who she described as "the uterus collector." Three lawyers cited by NBC News later identified the physician as Dr. Mahendra Amin.
New America wont have those things, of course.
Nutritional info on packaging? Really important isnt it, gone.
Limitations to air pollution by major manufacturers? gone (but Hillary gave one speech so both candidates are the same)
Social Security? gone
Minimum wage laws? gone
Voting rights? gone
Anybody have that list of things you can thank a liberal for? We need to post it, hundreds, GONE...you Hilary bashers need to apologize RIGHT FUCKING NOW
Obviously my comment about Hillary is sarcasm...but there are some reading this now who actually believe Hillary would have been no better and are glad they voted for traitor...
their specialty training. It is a big deal.
pass this so he created his own...wont use his name, fuck him
this (long, sorry) article spells it out https://www.thedailybeast.com/rand-paul-ophthalmology-certification-scandal-why-it-matters
Rand initially did the right thing and became certified; but when his 10 years were up, he decided hed had enough and chose not to recertify. Rather, he organized his own certifying program for ophthalmology based right there in his hometown of Bowling Green
He is a licensed physican who graduated from Duke University Medical School and served his residency there.
I despise him and do not wish him well, but he has enough bad stuff in his file.
In a US concentration camp. I don't think they had an option to check the doc's credentials.
and chose to hire the worst people to do the worst things to these women who had no choice in it.
a later post down thread that ICE is as guilty as the doc.
there will be millions of deaths. In fact, if he stays and I was a young person I would take up a career in the funeral industry.
They were deliberate violations of the women's rights to give or withhold consent.
good ones that arent certified, BTW.
General practice docs in the country actually may not even have a board. Small town docs do a little bit of everything
Family Practice has a Board of Certification, but one will have served a residency in Family Practice; old school general Practice only requires a year of internship.
There are very few places which offer that internship
If I know physician is board certified, I am not impressed. Is is a basic expectation.
If I find out a physician is NOT board certified, I consider it a serious mark against him/her.

Judgment at Nuremburg and recently watched it again.
It does a fantastic job of laying out individuals' moral and professional obligations and options, even in a fascist dictatorship. The film is not about the trials of top brass criminal Nazi officials. It is about judges who followed carried out the immoral Nazi laws in their rulings and sentences. In the course of the trial, all arguments are weighed, pro and con, and then Spencer Tracy, as chief tribunal judge, gives his ruling and reasons. His final comment after the trial to one of the defendents says it all.
Although I have watched this film before, I found it especially pertinent to issues we face today about personal responsibility, integrity, and courage to live up to professional standards and moral values in all settings.
Hes a fucking eugenics monster.
No! I wont watch my tongue!
Maybe perform a dick-otomy on him too!
So Im in staffing and BC is a really big deal.
The boards are not governmental, but private organizations. I dont truly believe they improve upon a physicians training, but they do weed out whack jobs and crazy fuckers - and there are a lot in medicine, way more than people realize.
They cost a lot of money and hours to maintain, and test seating is limited for testing There is a monopolistic control by ABMS, but other organizations have tried to set up alternative boards and theres a mess of lawsuits.
The boards do all kinds of stuff that seem driven by revenue, not care.
There has been no real study on if they actually improve care of physicians that get boarded. We just assume it does. But it does weed out cranks and docs that dont have their shit together. However, these people still can practice, but they are not getting the best jobs. And there are other ways to weed out crazy fuckers. Meanwhile, some boarded docs are also crazy so it doesnt weed them all out.
There is a physician shortage and BC requirements make that worse.
This dude prolly ended up working with ICE bc they didnt require boards bc they prolly could not find a boarded doc bc the pay is less than what they can make.
that signifies successful completion of a residency or fellowship (as measured by an outside organization)
The board exam is a lot of work to prepare and study for - it's something you have to squeeze in - but it is doable for most
These are human rights violations and call out for a UN investigation.
He billed for work he was not qualified to perform.
And his "patients" can sue his ass off.
Still waiting for all the right-wing pro-birthers to start raising hell about this. Anybody heard anything besides crickets, so far?
for over billing Medicare and Medicaid. They had to pay a fine of over $500K.
