California pediatrician Dr. Bob Sears recently testified at the California State Assembly hearing considering SB 276, which would prevent doctors from writing medical exemptions to childhood vaccines without the approval of California State health officials, appointed by politicians.

Dr. Sears pointed out that the passage of this bill would cause many doctors to stop writing medical exemptions for vaccines out of fear of what the California State Medical board may do to them, such as take away their license to practice medicine, or come under disciplinary action.

Dr. Sears should know, because that is exactly what happened to him. A disgruntled spouse in a custody case who wanted to administer several vaccines over the objection the other parent reported Dr. Sears to the California State Medical Board, which proceeded to put Dr. Sears on probation. This was in spite of the fact that the judge over the custody case agreed with Dr. Sears that there were valid medical reasons to not fully vaccinate the infant in question, who was suffering neurological disorders.

This action resulted in Dr. Sears having to pay over $20,000 a year in probation fees, and even though he has never had a single malpractice case, his malpractice insurance doubled, and he lost insurance contracts that allowed him to serve 500 military families, and now he can no longer provide service to these families.

My Next Medical Board Case

So, as expected, the CA Medical Board just sent me the paperwork about the first vaccine medical exemption accusation they are making against me. The packet was waiting for me when I got home from the hearing last night.

The case involves two siblings, one who has chronic psoriasis and the other who does not. The dad also has psoriasis. I saw them about three years ago for a VME appointment and determined that the risk of lifelong psoriasis, which has been reported numerous times in the medical literature as an adverse event following vaccines, is significant enough in these kids to warrant an exemption.

As per SB 277 law, and as per the directions of the medical board itself, I am supposed to consider family medical history in determining an exemption. Knowing that vaccines can trigger psoriasis or make existing psoriasis worse, based on the research studies below, and knowing how severe and debilitating lifelong psoriasis can be, an exemption is appropriate for these kids. This family, however, is no longer together and has since moved out of the state.

I expect the next step in this case — a hearing before a judge — will happen in about a year or so. Maybe sooner. I will keep you all in the loop as always. Thank you for your support and for the outpouring of encouragement I’ve received.

Leaving a lucrative career as a nephrologist (kidney doctor), Dr. Suzanne Humphries is now free to actually help cure people.

In this autobiography she explains why good doctors are constrained within the current corrupt medical system from practicing real, ethical medicine.

One of the sane voices when it comes to examining the science behind modern-day vaccines, no pro-vaccine extremist doctors have ever dared to debate her in public.
