Castration doctor still licensed in five states

August 21st, 2011 · 3 Comments · Serious overreach

Mark Geier, MD, the Maryland man who chemically castrates disabled children, is still licensed to practice medicine in Hawaii, Florida, Missouri, Kentucky, and Illinois. He also has an out-of-state “telemedicine license” in Texas, which expires in November, 2012.

California is the latest state to suspend Geier’s medical license. His New Jersey license expired June 30, 2011, and hasn’t been renewed. Four other states have suspended Geier: Maryland, Virginia, Indiana, and Washington.

A preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 22 in Chicago to determine Geier’s future in that state.

Geier claims to operate nine clinics in eight states, under the name ASD Centers, LLC.

    I personally know that at least one of those listed states is far along in the process of yanking his license.
