Where to find a doctor in US that is willing to offer Treatment for Covid?
I’m here in Florida and all the local doctors that I have questioned tell me that there is no treatment path for Covid19. They all say the same thing… wait till you have problems breathing and then go to the Emergency Room (hospital).
My doctor told me bluntly that if I was looking for hydroxychloroquine then that was not going to happen. It’s as if he had been asked that by way too many people. He was very rude… again, it’s as if they want you to get sick and die.
Any clue of any doctors that will help with treatment (right to try) prior to going to hospital? looking for help in the first few days of the illness.
Thanks all… new to this forum.
New Emergency orders from the Rhode Island Department of Health.
6.3 Off-Label Prescribing of Medications for Treatment or Prevention of COVID-19
A. No practitioner shall prescribe any medication for COVID-19, either for treatment or prevention, unless treatment or prevention of COVID-19, or similar infectious disease, is within such practitioner’s usual and customary scope of practice.
B. Any practitioner who chooses to prescribe an FDA-approved medication for the off-label purpose of treating COVID-19 shall:
1. Indicate on the prescription the applicable ICD-10 diagnosis code.
2. Indicate on the prescription a telephone number at which the dispensing authority (e.g., pharmacist) may reach the health care provider to address questions relative to dose and treatment.
3. Document in the associated patient’s medical record that the specific risks and benefits of the off-label treatment were discussed with the patient.
4. Document in the associated patient’s medical record the clinical rationale for the off-label prescribing, citing:
a. At least one (1) peer-reviewed article that justifies the clinical decision for the off-label prescribing, in the event that the FDA publishes such guidance; or
b. Applicable FDA guidance justifying the clinical decision for the off-label prescribing, in the event that the FDA publishes such guidance.
C. This Part does not apply to physicians licensed to practice medicine in the state of Rhode Island pursuant to R.I. Gen. Laws Chapter 5-37, who are board certified in the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) specialties of Infectious Disease and/or Critical Care.
There is no other disease or condition that carries these kinds of restrictions. COVID is being treated differently than all other conditions.
This confirms to me the impression that there is a war on off-label use of alternative medicines for COVID.
Warning: what follows is not medical advice. I’m not a doctor.
You mentioned hydroxychloroquine. You might consider the Zelenko Protocol. The Zelenko Protocol = Hydroxychloroquine, Azithromycin, Zinc.
A search turned up Jerome Corsi’s page on how to get a prescription for the Zelenko Protocol via a telemedicine interview. The doctors there can presumably sort through your situation and give you the proper treatment.
If you don’t want to go through Corsi’s site (which has some possibly helpful video interviews on the details of said protocol), you can save time and go direct to the telemedicine site at the link below:
I haven’t tried the service. If you use them, report back, I’d be curious to know how it turned out for you. I’m not affiliated with them in any way. Supposedly they can overnight the prescription to you. (I’m guessing that service isn’t cheap. But what can you do?)
As I said at the top: I’m not a doctor. This isn’t medical advice. But I understand the doctors at this site are comfortable prescribing the Zelenko Protocol to COVID-19 patients under the right circumstances.
Oh, and Chris’s new video today talks about several studies confirming that vitamin-D helps to avoid bad outcomes for COVID-19, and there’s another video posted here on site which provides the same information from a different angle.
Hope that helps.
Pardon me, but my mind wanders a lot…
Remember when google fired that white male for his good faith participation in a discussion about gender parity at google? A lot of “upper middle class” types got put on notice with that event:
Your job title may indicate you were hired because you are smart, but if you don’t affect to think exactly as you are told, the trappings of your “secure lifestyle” will be taken away from you.
So now sand_puppy posts new guidance above indicating that doctors may as well be order taking clerks. I have no education in Medicine and yet I could do the job of a Doctor as it now appears to be defined in treating a Covid patient (my ability to read instructions and prove that I followed them to the satisfaction of a bureaucrat with a similar medical background is seriously top-notch).
So now only those who belong to political organizations representing the Church Of Science shall be empowered to make decisions for end patients.
Went to med school for 8 years and work as a front line ER doc? Fuck you and your “anecdotal evidence” about HCQ. HCQ may have been safer than asprin by many measures for decades but “The Church” has discovered new scrolls and heretics will be cast out for failing to recognize the New Revelation.
Another Doc named Dave Janda retired when the provisions of the second “Obamacare” act came in. It had to do with a Federally controlled computer record system that was centralized so that doctors could be kept in line in treating their patients the “proper” way which back then seemed to be about denying tests to keep costs down for insurance companies.
Throw the Cops in while we are at it. Arrested someone in a way they didn’t like? Fuck you, you’re suspended and your life is ruined. Or maybe you are a college professor who mentioned a classic work of fiction containing a character who made hetero-normative remarks? Dude… just get out of here with your hate…
Good thing there isn’t an organized coup going on at all levels of the West. If there were, people with “good jobs” would be being made accustomed to knowing the risks of acting on their own judgement in order to ensure they don’t get idealistic and uppity during the coming “transition”.
thank you sir…
thank you so much… great information.
@sand_puppy, I believe you had said you were also licensed in Virginia, so are you still able to prescribe for covid related situations?
How long until you would you expect Virginia to follow suit?
I like to try to keep aware of just how fast the trap is closing on us
We are also in Florida with the same experience. We did a Telemed session and a received prophylaxis scrip for HCQS through frontlinemedicaldoctors.com
If we had any symptoms they would have added Zpack and Albuterol for pre-hospitalization intervention with zinc OTC.
You can find a detailed account of the excellent experience we posted recently to the Frontline MD thread.
All the best!
I had an interesting experience. I asked my primary care doctor (through one of those web-based portals you now have to use to communicate) what would I be offered if I were to test positive for COVID. The written response was “supportive care” and Remdesivir plus steroids if I were admitted to hospital. That was not unexpected but nevertheless, inadequate. I did not know at the time that the doctors hands were tied because the state pharmacy board was refusing to dispense off-label for COVID. I decided to bring it up in person at my upcoming physical.
Then the censorship of the group, Americas Front line Doctors happened and this created a public uproar, and the pharmacy board was made to retract (for now). I then recontacted my doctor to say that with the change in dispensing, I wanted to discuss early treatment options at my next physical. I attached two reviews of the data on Zn and HCQ, including Dr. Harvey Risch’s papers. When we spoke in person, I explained to the doctor that I care for my aging parents, that I needed to fight COVID if I got it and to avoid passing it to them, and that I was interested in early treatment Zn/HCQ protocol. The doctor admitted that an early course for 5+ days was perfectly reasonable, and that that the doctor had treated many patients with lupus without issue. I suspect the doctor was able to be candid with me when not on the portal interface.
Yes, this all appears very targeted and systematic.
This article that questions whether financial conflicts of interests are influencing COVID treatment in the US.
In France, after France’ most eminent virologist, Dr. Raoult, successfully treated patients with HCQ, the drug was promptly switched from OTC to prescription and medical authorities determined the treatment guidelines. This article discusses the clash with Dr. Raoult and the ties between Gilead Sciences and the French authorities.
And this article talks about the influence of drug companies on FDA.
