For reasons one can only presume, the Minnesota Medical Board has emerged as a silent and deadly keeper of sins and deeds and has basically been allowed to become the cover for numerous egregious crimes inflicted upon the residents of this state. The boards behavior is disgusting, and should be viewed by every Minnesotan as a total national embarrassment. The boards sole purpose has been to protect the commercial interest of physicians in this state instead of the patients whom have entrusted their lives with said doctors. Shame on this board, and every member. Someone at the Capitol better wake up and do something about it.

Having personal knowledge of complaints filed with the board and their subsequent refusal to act on the complaints in any manner is akin to committing a crime against humanity in my opinion. Who do they think they are? Our daughter was permanently harmed by substandard care by a psychiatrist over at the University along with another patient and both complaints were dismissed with a simple form letter stating if the board received any more complaints they reserve the right to reopen ours. They reserve the right!! Who do they think they are...I guess "first do no harm" has never been applied to their statutes.
