Following her decision to use ivermectin to combat COVID-19 and issuing a declaration that she would only treat the unvaccinated, Dr. Mary Talley Bowden’s medical license is being threatened by the Texas Medical Board on behalf of complaints from two separate hospitals.
Having treated more than 5,000 patients with COVID-19, neither of the complaints accuse Bowden of harming a single patient.
While in the process of fighting to protect her medical license, Bowden is continuing to treat patients.
“People close to me have encouraged me to give up for my own well-being, but I’ve witnessed too much and could not live with myself if I didn’t keep going,” said Bowden. “I did nothing wrong and will fight for what’s right—which is caring for patients.”
The complaints originated from Houston Methodist Hospital and Texas Health Huguley Hospital in Fort Worth.
Texas Health Huguley complained to the TMB that in 2021, Bowden—without the correct privilege—prescribed a dying Texas sheriff deputy ivermectin since nothing else was working. However, Bowden has continued to deny that she treated Jones in Huguley, which would require special privileges.
When Bowden offered Sheriff Deputy Jason Jones’ family the option to attempt treating his symptoms with ivermectin, they wanted to try. The hospital refused, and Jones’ wife gave him the ivermectin in secret after the police were called on a nurse who was administering the drug prescribed to the deputy.
The law enforcement officer, who had been in a medically induced coma and living on a ventilator for more than two months, has since recovered.
The Jones family filed a lawsuit against Huguley over the ivermectin issue in 2021.
Bowden has even gone so far as to say that during the COVID-19 frenzy, hospitals developed a form of a “death protocol,” where they refused to correctly treat patients.
“Dr. Bowden is a courageous warrior. While hospitals practiced their death protocol that killed hundreds of thousands, Dr. Bowden treated over 5,500 COVID patients and saved their lives,” said Beth Parlato, the Jones family’s attorney.
“She is being targeted and investigated by the TMB in an effort to convince the public that their killing protocol never happened. They are trying to discredit and silence her from speaking the truth and exposing their crimes. It won’t work,” Parlato continued.
Following Bowden’s defense of the people refusing a COVID-19 shot and using ivermectin to treat the malady, Methodist Hospital has begun publicly attacking her. Bowden did make an announcement that she would only be treating unvaccinated patients; however, she did not enforce this rule.
Methodist Hospital reported Bowden to the TMB because they claimed she “resigned her privileges while under investigation for an issue related to patient care.”
Bowden explained that she was never actually under investigation, according to the information given to her by the hospital.
“They were questioning my qualifications—whether or not I had the vaccine—and not anything to do with patient care,” said Bowden.
Methodist Hospital had mandated that employees stay up to date with the COVID shot and boosters.
Parlato believes that Bowden’s fight against the TBM will have lasting national importance for other doctors:
Medical boards across this country are investigating the real hero doctors who broke from the establishment and their killing protocol, and utilized lifesaving medication during the COVID pandemic. Dr. Bowden’s case is one of the first in the nation, which makes this significant. If Dr. Bowden is successful in quashing this investigation, it serves as a precedent for all of our nation’s medical boards.
Bowden told Emily Miller with Emily Posts News that the Texas Medical Board offered her a settlement: admit guilt, pay a $5,000 fine, and take eight hours of Continuing Medical Education and a jurisprudence exam.
Bowden refused the settlement.
“I will not plead guilty to crimes I didn’t commit,” Bowden said.
The doctor is currently pursuing a public hearing in order to avoid “anonymous accusations” and so that she can bring her own witnesses. Bowden is now on Substack Day 8.
The TMB refused Texas Scorecard’s request for comment.
