Castration doctor’s license now
suspended in four states

July 27th, 2011 · 68 Comments · Junk science

And then there were seven.

Dr. Mark Geier, the Maryland physician who chemically castrates disabled children, is still licensed to practice medicine in seven states, down from eleven. Four states have suspended or revoked his privileges since April 27, when his home state took action against him. Washington followed on May 26, then Virginia on June 9. On June 29, Indiana issued an emergency 90-day suspension, citing the Maryland action.

More states are taking action. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Illinois has scheduled a preliminary hearing on Geier’s license for Aug. 22. The story hints that the Missouri Healing Arts Board may be investigating Geier as well:

A doctor who is disciplined in another state is also subject to discipline in Missouri and Illinois. A spokesman for the Missouri healing arts board would not confirm an investigation of Geier, whose license is active.

Mark Geier and his son, David, reportedly received a standing ovation from anti-vaccine activists at May’s cult-like AutismOne conference. But few in the movement have publicly defended their actions. That stands in stark contrast to Andrew Wakefield, the disgraced UK gastroenterologist whose 1998 Lancet paper jump-started the modern anti-vaccine movement, whose defenders are vocal and vociferous.

UPDATE:   Geier also holds a “telemedicine license” in Texas, which expires Nov. 30, 2012.

    David Geier is not an MD.

    Okay, we are agreed David Geier is not a doctor, so he should not have been acting like one. And he should be prosecuted for practicing medicine without a license.

    The Seidels are not the subject of this article.

    Chris, space lizards provoked the action with their character assassination about the Geiers. I strongly suspect that the alleged patient who accused David Geier of practicing without a license is a lizard person, same as the CIA agent who lives in my closet.

    The Geiers have been the cause of their own troubles. There was more than one parent who complained. Your defense of them is baseless and, frankly, quite lame.

    Scientists around the world disagree with me. They are lizard people.

    Really, Bolen? Again?

    Have you already forgotten that we told you he is a joke and we believe him less than you?

  • 7 Chris // Aug 8, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    Hahahahahaha! David Geier (or as the letter says: Geier David) filled out a form from here and sent it in. He was not invited, by using the CoMedy letterhead he pretended he had something to say.

    I hope he has all his vaccines for a trip to Africa. Though I am not sure he is going to be getting a visa with the very serious charge of practicing medicine without a license.

    Bolen might claim you don’t believe him but insane and paranoid people think he writes the truth.

    Except no one takes him or you seriously. And at I see these words on his Jurimed business:

    Liars and propaganda wizards always try to denigrate decent people by making those types of claims. Ed Gein took me so seriously, he issued an order to the Illuminati that none of you were supposed to even mention my name. That tells me my psychopath brethren are scared to death of me. I’ve moved on to more important voices in my head now so I don’t bother too much with you.

  • 11 Chris // Aug 8, 2011 at 5:14 pm

    How exactly is showing you how to find out that Bolen’s Jurimed business is suspended a lie?

  • 12 Jon Beste // Aug 9, 2011 at 5:10 am

    I don’t care what some Illuminati site says about his business. Nobody takes me seriously. Explain why Donald Trump told all of his lizard soldiers to watch my back. Gotta go – the orderlies are turning off the lights.

    You all are being very unfair to John Best (the real one). He has his faults, but there are far worse antivaxxers out there. Remember Fore Sam, who was so humiliated by Kathleen’s arguments that after he changed his pants and wiped his nose, he swore that he would “horse-whip” her (he was afraid to threaten any man, and later said that he’d need Kathleen to be in a stock before he’d dare confront her). Now that was an antivaxxer worth laughing out, for his pseudo-masculine posturing, and general lack of couth. What ever happened to that guy anyway…

    Oh. Wait – I just googled “Fore Sam” – carry on with the mocking of “Best”.

    California wised up too. Good news.

    Latest news:

    “Dr. Mark R. Geier, a Rockville doctor accused of improperly treating children with autism, has been ordered by the state Board of Physicians to stop practicing medicine while his license is suspended.”

  • 17 Andrew // Jun 21, 2012 at 5:00 pm

    Texas has pulled his license

  • 18 Andrew // Aug 14, 2012 at 8:12 am

    David Geier fined $10,000.
