After a group of more than 100 doctors sent a complaint to the State Medical Board over a couple of Anchorage physicians who are trying to treat Covid-19 patients before they get deathly ill, a new group of advocates has emerged: Patients who support the Covid-treating doctors.
On social media, through email lists, text messages, and phone calls across Alaska, a message has been sent out for people to contact the State Medical Board immediately to protect independence of physicians who are using Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.
“ALASKA HERO DOCTORS UNDER ATTACK” the headline reads.
The messages requests Alaskans speak out now and defend doctors who are prescribing Ivermectin and the Chloroquine drugs for early-stage Covid to not be punished by the profession.
The State Medical Board meets on Friday, and Wednesday is the deadline for written comment on this or any matter. Comments can be submitted to [email protected].
“We cannot allow the establishment to stack the deck with testimony supporting the refusal of hospitals to treat early intervention with proven drugs and not allowing patients their right to choose,” the message reads.
“These good doctors are being threatened that they may lost their medical credentials to practice here in Alaska If they continue administering early treatments not in line with desires of the medical industrial complex and its definition of ‘best practices.'”
Already, at least one complaint letter has been received by the Medical Board pertaining to the few doctors who are helping Covid-infected people with a combination of treatments that include the two drugs, high doses of Vitamin D, Zinc and a handful of other nutraceuticals.
Dr. Leslie Gonsette wants those pioneering physicians punished by the Medical Board. She has been part of the group of doctors wanting to frighten and punish their non-conforming peers.
In her letter to the board, dated Nov. 3, she says the cause of death for many Covid patients is “MISINFORMATION.” She references the Early Treatment Summit that convened in Anchorage.
Gonsette, who is a “hospitalist,” (a doctor who takes care of patients once they are in the hospital), has helped organize the campaign against any physician that tries the novel treatments, used around the world, to keep Covid patients out of hospitals. Her letter, obtained through a public records request, follows. (Must Read Alaska will also obtain the other letters through public records requests):

To whom this may concern:
My name is Leslie Gonsette and I am a board certified internal medicine and pediatric physician. I am with the Alaska Hospitalist Group and work primarily as a full time hospitalist at Providence Alaska Medical Center, where I also serve on the Medical Executive Committee.
I have worked in Alaska for 10 years and have come to care for COVID-19 patients much of the last 2 years. First the virus was the cause of many unfortunate deaths, now MISINFORMATION is.
The Federation of State Medical Boards issued a warning months ago about the possible license suspension of physicians spreading misinformation, which is undertaken by that state’s medical board. I urge you to address the public and all physicians in Alaska regarding the actions the medical board is taking to prevent this. A similar plea was written in the Anchorage Daily News and I quote this below along with a link to the article below.
On October 30th, a meeting organized by the Mayor of Anchorage, invited in-state and out-of state doctors to discredit vaccines, masks and propagate misinformation. Here are the videos as proof: https://www.alaskacovidalliance.com/morning-
I ask you to act now before more lives are lost and more importantly because ethically we must not condone this behavior or such conduct will continue unchecked.
Respectfully, Leslie Gonsette

“I ask the Medical Board to do one of two things:
Expedite its handling of my and any other similar complaints in order to address the issue now and render its judgment about whether certain public statements of false, misleading or dangerous medical information by the named doctors is unacceptable. And, if the board will not tolerate such conduct, what consequences will be imposed on those doctors, thereby setting a standard for all doctors in Alaska.
Or it should issue, at its earliest opportunity, an advisory statement outlining its view of the ethical requirements of Alaska doctors with respect to the public dissemination of false, misleading or dangerous medical information, and the potential consequences of such conduct. In effect, the board would be warning doctors that certain kinds of behavior violate the board’s adopted code of ethics and could lead to sanctions or reprimands or even, in the most extreme cases, license suspensions.”
The letter that has been circulating among doctors by Gonsette-associated physicians says:
