Maine’s Board of Licensure in Medicine on Tuesday held the first of several hearings to determine whether Dr. Meryl Nass will be able to continue practicing medicine. The hearing focused on allegations that Nass prescribed ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine to three patients.
A Maine state agency met Tuesday for the first of several hearings that will determine whether an Ellsworth doctor who was an outspoken critic of state and federal COVID-19 policies will ever be able to practice medicine in the state again.
The Board of Licensure in Medicine (BOLIM), a state agency that regulates medical licensing in Maine, suspended Dr. Meryl Nass’s medical license on Jan. 12 following an investigation that started with an activist’s complaint that she was spreading misinformation in media interviews and on the Internet.
None of Nass’s patients complained about the care they received from her during the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the BOLIM action against her originated from activists who flagged her public comments as “misinformation” in emails to BOLIM.
