The Texas Medical Board has taken a "corrective action" against Dr. Stella Immanuel, the infamous Trump-loving Houston doctor who has in the past spouted theories about demons impregnating human women during their sleep and about physicians using "alien DNA" to treat their patients.
The Houston Chronicle reports that the board took the action in response to Immanuel prescribing hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19 "without adequately explaining the health consequences" to her patients.
"In an Oct. 15 decision, the medical board ordered Immanuel to submit proof of informed consent — or permission given by a patient who understands the possible health outcomes — for all off-label treatments she provides," writes the Chronicle. "She must adopt policies that require all consent documents to be reviewed and signed by the patient for off-label treatment. She also must pay $500 to the medical board."
Immanuel first came into the national spotlight last year after Trump promoted a video she produced that touted hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19, despite the fact that multiple studies have shown that the anti-malarial drug is not effective at fighting the disease.
Despite Immanuel's wild theories about women being impregnated by demons, Trump last year said he was "very impressed" with her and thanked her for promoting hydroxychloroquine.
