    A very sad story that really happened.

    “My career of treating patients has ended”

    “After more than three decades as a physician, the Q maniacs have succeeded in driving me out of providing care to patients. I, like many of my colleagues, am moving into medically-adjacent work, where we can continue to apply our training and decades off knowledge without ever having to come in contact with sick people.”

    COVID and Q finally proved to be the one of amateur “experts” that was too much for me. The horrific deaths are beyond what you might imagine. They emerge almost unrecognizable to their families. Since June, I have never seen a horrible case of someone who was vaccinated.

    My breaking point came three weeks ago. I dealt with a particularly horrible case. This was a husband and father, 38 years old. A wife, two daughters, one son. All of age to get vaccinated, none vaccinated. If you could have seen his face, and the ravages left by both COVID and the time he spent prone on his stomach. An enormous clot kept reforming in his leg, and we had been forced to amputate his foot in hopes of keeping him alive. When he was awake, the look of terror in his eyes, the crying, the pain. It was nothing new. But the begging, over and over, “Don’t let me die.” And “Give me the vaccine.” All I could tell him is “We won’t let you” – although I never said we might not have any choice in the matter. And I told him, repeatedly, it was too late for the vaccine.

    He begged me to bring in his family. A nurse called them, because they had never come to the hospital. They refused to wear masks, and so would not be admitted. The nurse told the wife that her husband was likely dying, and was begging to see them. All she cared about was masks. She would only come if she and her daughters didn’t have to wear any.

    The nurse came to me and told me the wife wanted to speak to me. I got on the phone and she ordered me to cure him with ivermectin and vitamin C & D. I explained to her, those do not work, they have been extensively studied and the amount of ivermectin needed to treat even mild COVID would kill a human being. Once again, I was told I was ignorant. I asked her to come down to the hospital, to bring her children, to at least wait outside. Somehow, she agreed.

    The nurses were all busy, and I took over the role they usually perform, comforting the dying. I sat beside the man’s bed. Through tears, he rasped out sounds I could vaguely understand as a question. I guessed at what he was asking, and assured him that yes, his family was coming. He was so frightened, and I could tell he knew death was unavoidable. I’m not religious, but I knew he was, and I talked about the comfort of Jesus as I held his hand. About a minute later, he coded. We tried to save him, but there was nothing to be done. He died.

    Twenty minutes later, I heard from a nurse that the family was here, that they had made a ruckus down in the lobby demanding to be let upstairs without masks, and had been thrown out of the hospital. I consulted with a few colleagues who agreed to cover me so that i could speak to them in the parking lot. I took the elevator down, and asked security to point out the family that refused to wear masks. Fortunately, they had not left.

    I stepped outside, went to the wife, and identified myself. I told her that I was sorry, that we had done everything we could, but her husband had passed a few minutes earlier. I did not manage to get the words of the sentence fully out of my mouth when I felt the fist strike my face and heard the screamed words “You murderer!” I fell backwards, tripped, and plopped onto the pavement, the back off my head striking asphalt. I vaguely heard the words being screamed about ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine and god knows what else. I heard “you could have saved him if you listened!” I tasted blood from the top of my lip. It took a moment to know it was seeping from my nose, which she had broken. My mask was getting wet, and thus useless. Security grabbed her. They were getting ready to call the police, but I knew if they did, I would become the next national target for the Q maniacs. I told them to just put her in her car. I wasn’t going to press charges. I went back to the hospital.

    I started looking for a new job the next day. I will never treat a patient again.

    my daughter and i were “discussing” last night the ignorance of people and how easily manipulated they are….
    calling the doctor a murderer in bob1’s story? i may have reservations (i do) regarding the vaccines, but masks? Why would one refuse to wear a mask? ? ?
    BTW Ivermectin originated in Japan 40+ years ago and was developed to treat humans, not horses…. FWIW
    this nation is – IMHO – being manipulated in a very destructive way

    That is sad and I’m starting to get that vibe from a couple of my doctors.

    I’ve looked long and hard…there isn’t a shred of clinical evidence that Ivermectin is a viable drug for Covid.

    There is substantial clinical evidence that a dirt cheap antidepressant, fluvoxamine, is effective at early stages.

    We’ll see what comes of this…

    Prayers for these mothers & their lost children. 🙏🏻

    Almost posted this earlier, but now I think is a good time:

    I know alot of us feel this way. Sure, we can argue endlessly that it’s the “other guy’s (insert hated political party here) fault” but that won’t solve anything.

  7. bob1 says:



    The story is completely horrific. But the idea of a family physically accosting a physician because he refused to believe their fake swill about Covid? And all the time he was trying
    to save the father?

    There aren’t words for this.

    Some are acting like complete barbarians.

  8. Michael says:


    According to my doctors, it’s a regular occurrence here.
    They had to enclose all customer facing spaces in plexiglass to protect the workers…

  9. Dan from Georgia says:

    It’s beyond sad that some have so swallowed up Q nonsense and bogus information on their Facebook feeds that they are consumed day and night with anxiety unless they act out their aggression. Used to be that experts in medicine were revered.

  10. Em says:

    Not sure where all the Phoenix Peeps are located, but am praying for those impacted by the tornado outbreak…. Will be cold night in many locations – below freezing….

    My understanding of Ivermectin is that it must be taken in the very early stages of a covid infection – its efficacy is its ability to protect cells from absorbing the virus….. Other nations are using it, BTW….. The new Pfizer pill will be similar as I understand

    I remember the scene in the film Soylent Green in which the old timey actor Edward G. Robinson weeps into his hands saying:
    “How did we come to this?…”

  12. bob1 says:

    The doctor who was physically attacked by that family?

    By all rights, he should have contacted the police and brought charges.

    He did not do so.

    I see Jesus.

  13. Dan from Georgia says:

    Em, safe here in western GA. Co-worker’s parents live south of St. Louis and one of the tornadoes passed about 8-9 miles to their north.

    Hello Phoenix Preacher friends. I need some prayers for my dad. We are trying to get him to assisted living; he needs a negative PCR test to go. I live 400 miles away from him, and I’ve been trying to coordinate from here with some other helpful people. So-
    -Test #1 was never taken because my dad thought I sent him for a booster (he has a bit of dementia).
    -Test #2 was this past week. I didn’t get the results (dad doesn’t do the internet) and I finally got through to the lab. The sample his test was in was compromised, so there was no result.
    -Test #3 is this Tuesday. I really want it to go well. He needs to be with my stepmom, who is already at the facility (she went straight from the skilled nursing where she has been recovering from a stroke).

    So, prayer request-negative PCR test so my stepsister can move him next weekend. Thank you!!! We found a nice place for my dad and stepmom, and they really want to be together.

    Moderate-certainty evidence finds that large reductions in COVID-19 deaths are possible using ivermectin. Using ivermectin early in the clinical course may reduce numbers progressing to severe disease. The apparent safety and low cost suggest that ivermectin is likely to have a significant impact on the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic globally.

  16. Linn says:

    PP friends: I’m not sure who prayed, but the facility decided that my dad can get his COVID test local to the facility and move in tomorrow! Thank you!!

  17. Em says:

    Thanking God with you, Linn….. Grace and mercy, thank You, Lord

    Rabbit trail:
    We’ve had a herd of deer in the yard this afternoon… enjoyed watching jousting bucks butt heads… a doe came up on the deck and helped herself to the bird seed – folk think of them as pests and they can be, but still beautiful creatures!

    Praying comfort from God our Father for Michael’s mom – know we all are doing so tonight
    God keep

    Well, I’m back for now. I’m struggling very much with my mental illnesses and other health issues. I need support, but I’m not sure where to get it. Sometimes it feels like when one suffers from mental illness, everything about you becomes suspect. It seems like people don’t hear or listen to what I say. I try to avoid conflicts but sometimes conflict is unavoidable, especially when people will viscously attack me on other social media sites. I get viscously attacked, I naturally try and defend myself, people see that and it feels as if I’m immediately viewed w/suspicion because I’m mentally ill. The conflict, it seems, must be due to me being a drama king. I literally can’t win. I feel rejected and abandoned just when I need folks the most. I wish I were a cat.

  19. Em says:

    Mike, this web site is a great place for you – hope you visit daily… In my humble opinion
    Mental illness has so many causes, so expect good prayers for you here, too. 🙏
    My daughter thinks my mind is deteriorating (old age), but I don’t think so.
    I just forget things…sometimes and I don’t enjoy cooking anymore + never did, actually. I just loved the people I was preparing meals for…. Had a reputation as an xlnt cook 😇. Love really can overcome so much!
    Glad you’re not a cat, BTW. 🙆

  20. Captain Kevin says:

    Hi Mike,
    Praying God’s grace and strength for you. You’re not alone.

  21. Em says:

    CK @11:55
    AMEN ! ! !

  22. Mike says:

    Em-you’re a good Christian lady. We don’t agree on politics. I don’t care. I just love you. You’re doing better than me I bet with your memory. 😉 Who are you again? Lol. I sure would’ve loved to of tasted some of your cooking. My wife Shari is a wonderful cook. When we married, she didn’t know how to cook anything really. You should see her now. I don’t care what anybody believes about politics anymore. For me, it’s love God. Love neighbor. This is the whole law. 🐏

  23. Mike says:

    I Thank You captain! No. I will never be alone. Like you, I followed the one who said “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

  24. Em says:

    Mike @6:02
    AMEN and AMEN!

    thank you for the kind words and politics? Just human viewpoints. IMO
    God keep

  25. Just One of His Lambs says:

    The thing I love about the PP site is that we can disagree on issues and (hopefully) people can stop and look at one another as children of God, made in His image, rather than vaxed or unvaxed, Republican or Democrat, mask/no-mask, pre trib/post trib, and the beat goes on. If we sat down together over a cup of coffee, I am sure there is much more we would agree on. Like Mike says, love God and love my neighbor. If we start there, everything else will fall into it’s proper place. God bless you Mike. Many of us here are broken people and limping along with you….by the grace of God. In Him we are more than conquerors. (Not merely ”conquerors” but more than….we are people who are broken and beaten down and can still stand up and, by His grace, overcome that which would destroy us….by His grace, we lift up and bless, rather than destroy. We are MORE than conquerors through Christ who loves us.

    Is it just me or is this thread of comments a bit special ? ??

  27. Em says:

    well here’s the youtube video – that we found so funny…
    feel free to remove this, Michael, if you find it not so funny
