Dr. Sears is actually my sons pediatrician. He gave our son his vaccinations on time and on schedule. He is not anti vaccination and his views have been dramatically mischaracterized.

I actually know the details around all of these cases. The article doesn’t come close to explaining the details.

This actually goes back to a case from 2015, for Dr. sears writing a court opinion letter for a child who had an adverse reaction to vaccines. A court opinion letter? Medical boards are usually tasked with protecting patients from doctors who sell drugs, who see patients while intoxicated, who commit insurance fraud, or prescribe the wrong drug that ends up hurting the patient.

What actually happened? A mom and a child came to him describing how her son had experienced severe neurological reaction after vaccines three years earlier, and she was afraid that a judge in an upcoming hearing was going to force her to resume vaccines. The medical records for the incident were not available yet but she needed a lettter for the case right away, so he wrote an opinion that the reaction was severe enough that it warranted an exemption. The board accusation against him is that he could not have made that judgment without first obtaining medical records.

His opinion is that it’s better to believe the patient rather than potentially let the courts force her to do something that could injure the child. Do no harm.

There was also a second part to the case, where the child complained that he had been hit in the head with a hammer. He neglected to write down one detail of the exam he performed.

He accepted a settlement from the board rather than going through a trial where the judge could side with him and the board could still recommend probation.

The four other cases lined up against him:

Case number two involves siblings who received a vaccine exemption because one of the kids has a severe medical condition that research shows can get worse with ongoing vaccinations. The other child doesn’t have the condition, yet, but the dad does. He gave the exemption guaranteed under SB277 for family medical history.

Case number three is related to a child whose relative had a permanent severe neurological injury after vaccines.

Case number four is about a severe reaction an infant had to a vaccine where her previous doctor told her to opt out of future vaccinations. He wrote her an exemption from a teen booster dose.

Case number five involves siblings that he didn’t give vaccine exemptions to, but they reported him anyway.

Need more doctors like him who aren't in it for financial kickbacks from big pharma.

You mean doctors who actually care about the health of their patients and don’t blindly prescribe everything under the sun?

Couldn’t agree more
