An Idaho doctor who came to Anchorage with a group of other physicians in 2021 to talk about early treatment protocols for Covid-19 is now being threatened by the State of Washington, which has taken the first steps to pulling his license to practice in Washington.
Dr. Ryan Cole lives in Boise, Idaho and is a licensed pathologist who advocates against Covid vaccines, and favors of early treatment protocols for Covid, and the use of ivermectin. He was part of the Alaska Early Treatment Alliance lineup of doctors who spoke to over 1,200 interested Alaskans in October, 2021. The event was sponsored by the Alaska Covid Alliance and featured other physicians who do not toe the line on Covid, such as Dr. Robert Malone, who was banned from Twitter under that company’s previous management for espousing objections to the Covid policies being pushed by the government. Malone was one of the inventors of the mRNA vaccine technology used in the Covid vaccines that are generally in use today.
For over six months, a licensing oversight board in the State of Washington has been considering disciplinary action against Dr. Cole, and now, the Washington Medical Commission has officially accused Cole of making misleading statements about Covid-19 and treating patients “beneath the standard of care.”
Cole is on the Ada County, Idaho Central District Board of Health. He is licensed as a physician and surgeon in the state of Washington. In 2021, a group of doctors filed complaints with the Washington Medical Commission, which now says that enforcement action is pending against Cole.
“The statement of charges alleges that Dr. Cole made numerous false and misleading statements related to COVID-19 and treated patients with COVID-19 or seeking to prevent getting COVID-19 in a manner that was beneath the standard of care,” the commission said on its website.
Doctors in Alaska made similar accusations against Alaska doctors who dared to question the party line on Covid.
Cole is accused of making statements in public that the Washington Medical Commission believes are false concerning the use of ivermectin to treat Covid, the effectiveness (or ineffectiveness) of masks, and what the the commission says were statements that were “harmful and dangerous to individual patients, generated mistrust in the medical profession and in public health, and had a widespread negative impact on the health and well-being of our communities.”
The commission also accuses Cole of presenting himself as a “highly trained physician.” Among statements the commission attributes to Dr. Cole, which the commission believes are false and dangerous to public heath:
- Covid is a completely survivable virus for most people that are not in elderly, high-risk categories
- Children survive Covid at 100%
- Asymptomatic spread of Covid is infinitesimally small
- Ivermectin is a known antiviral medication
- Ivermectin decreased Covid death by 68-90% and acquisition by 86-88%
- 100% of world ivermectin trials have shown benefit
- The Covid vaccination is “an experimental biological gene therapy immune-modulatory invention” and “a fake vaccine … the clot shot, needle rape.=”
- mRNA trials in mammals have led to autoimmune disease
- 50% of health care workers are not getting the Covid-19 vaccination
- The Covid vaccine has cause more deaths than Covid and has killed children
- The Covid vaccination only reduced the risk of getting Covid by 1%
- Natural immunity against Covid is better than the vaccine
- The Covid vaccine has a spike protein that is a toxin that crosses the blood brain barrier
- The vaccination can cause cancer and infertility
The commission also says Cole was providing negligent care to four patients to prevent or treat Covid-19 infections by prescribing “medications that are not indicated for a COVID-19 infection.” The commission says Cole didn’t properly document justification for using ivermectin or perform a physical exam of the patients. The commission accuses him of not obtaining “appropriate informed consent” from his patients to use ivermectin.
Cole has been hounded by the State of Washington, where he has been licensed to practice since 2007. Medical boards in others states received complaints about him but the Idaho Board of Medicine did not pursue an investigation over his publicly expressed opinions on Covid, and other states where complaints were lodged also took no action. Only Washington State has decided to try to pull his license to practice.
