TMB orders Amarillo doctor to stop practicing medicine
Posted on Thursday, June 21st, 2012
The Texas Medical Board has ordered an Amarillo doctor to stop practicing medicine after he allegedly prescribed a cancer patient a “colostrum bovine treatment,” according to the Amarillo Global News.
The treatment involves the injecting the patient’s blood into the udder of a pregnant cow and then drinking its milk. The patient died in hospice care before he could begin treatment.
Officials at the Texas Medical Board issued a cease and desist order that prohibits him from acting as a doctor or practicing medicine. The board says the patient paid $2,500 to the doctor and $2,500 to the farmer for the cow. The farmer reimbursed the deceased’s family, but the doctor did not.
