Physician assistant’s license suspended over COVID actions

WASHHOUGAL, Wash. (AP) — The Washington Medical Commission has suspended a pediatric health care provider’s license in southwest Washington.

The Columbian reports that the suspension came after an investigation into more than a dozen complaints against physician assistant Scott Miller, who heads Miller Family Pediatrics in Washougal.

According to the complaints, he was interfering in the care of hospitalized COVID-19 patients and waged a threatening public campaign against hospitals and doctors.

According to the committee’s findings, Miller also “initiated a public campaign touting the use of ivermectin in the treatment of coronavirus disease,” despite there being no reliable clinical evidence that the drug is effective in treating COVID-19. Miller has 20 days to appeal. He could not be reached for comment, the newspaper said.
