Of the complaints received, many claimed that Miller prescribed a long list of nutritional supplements, including vitamin D, vitamin C, zinc, melatonin, aspirin, quercetin and selenium, acetylcysteine ​​and L-glutathione, and the drugs ivermectin, dexamethasone and azithromycin used to treat symptoms of the virus. For at least one complaint, Miller had not examined the patient and only spoken to the person over the phone.

The state also said Miller repeatedly called doctors and nurses at hospitals to request that patients be given ivermectin. During a call, the state said Miller identified himself as a patient’s brother. After Miller recommended the administration of a certain antibiotic and antihistamine to the patient, he is said to have identified himself correctly.

The Washington Medical Commission also alleged Miller lied when he applied for a license in 2013 when he failed to disclose an investigation in another state.

In 2012, the California Physician Assistant Board sued Miller, who was then practicing in the state for providing medical care without an attending physician’s approval, prescribing controlled substance drugs without examining patients and not documenting patients’ medical records. However, according to state records, Miller claims to have provided this information during the application process.

Miller has 20 days to appeal the suspension.

The popular medical provider is finding support from the community and patients. Joshua Brock, who lives in Camas, created an online crowdsourced GoFundMe campaign to raise money for Miller’s legal fund. To date, more than $ 46,000 has been raised.

Miller was not available for comment on this story.
