Dr. Paul Marik, a doctor at the center of a Virginia lawsuit against a health care employer that banned the use of certain kinds of medicine to fight COVID-19, told The Daily Wire in an interview Tuesday that his case is fundamentally about the ability of medical physicians to care for their patients as they see fit based on their expertise. In other words, it’s about “letting doctors be doctors.”
Dr. Marik practices at Sentara Norfolk General, in Norfolk, VA. He is is a founding member of the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care (FLCCC) Alliance. He is also the chief of pulmonary and critical care medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
Marik is one of the leading experts on the “MATH+ method” for treating patients with COVID-19. But, Sentara Healthcare recently banned doctors’ ability to prescribe medicines required for use in MATH+.
