The OTHER Burzynski Patient Group blog has discovered a new complaint against the cancer treatment clinic run by Stan Burzynski.
On June 29th, 2015, the Texas Medical Board filed a complaint against the Burzynski Clinic’s physician assistant Anita Shrout. This brings the number of confirmed open Medical Board cases against members of the Burzynski Clinic to five. One against Stan, one against his son Greg, one against Drs. Yi and Marquis, and this latest against a physician assistant, Anita Shrout.
The complaint alleges:
Respondent failed to adequately document the health care provider who was making the evaluation and treatment decisions regarding the patient. Respondent’s failure to adequately document the health care provider who was making the evaluation and treatment decisions regarding the patient was so significant that the medical records appear to show that the Respondent was the health care provider who was making the evaluation and treatment decisions regarding the patient.
The Board is authorized to take disciplinary action under the Physicians Assistant Act if Shrout is found to have acted in an “unprofessional and dishonorable manner that is likely to deceive, defraud or injure the public”. See the link above to view the entire complaint document. Shrout has the opportunity to dispute this complaint but it is another black mark against a clinic repeated charged with unethical and unprofessional actions. So far, even despite a big expose by USA Today, Stan has dodged legal punishment.
For all stories about Burzynski and his claims of a “miracle” cure for cancer, see here.
In another interesting development, Burzynski’s long-time solicitor withdrew from the current case against Dr. B. Richard Jaffe, Esq. of California, announce he was withdrawing “for reasons which should be left unexplained” in a motion dated July 23, 2015.
What happens with this complaint and the scheduled hearing in mid-November should be interesting.
Is the house of cards finally toppling for Stan?
