‘Doctor’ who claimed masks caused carbon dioxide poisoning loses his medical license

On September 2, the Oregon Medical Board issued “a Default Final Order for dishonorable or unprofessional conduct” against Steven Arthur LaTulippe M.D. for “repeated negligence in the practice of medicine; and gross negligence in the practice of medicine. This Order revokes Licensee’s medical license and assesses a $10,000 fine.”

According to Newsweek:

LaTulippe’s license was first suspended last December. The suspension was upheld in May after the board found that his family practice, Southview Medical Arts in Dallas, operated in such a way that it constituted an “immediate danger” to the public and presented a “serious danger” to public health and safety.

LaTulippe had frequently told his patients to remove their masks because they were ineffective against COVID-19 and could cause carbon dioxide poisoning.

And what should as nor surprise or shock anyone, LaTulippe believed “the body’s natural immune system was a more effective defense against COVID-19 than wearing a mask.” He was recorded at a ‘Stop the Steal’ rally in Salem, Oregon in November where he dismissed the importance of masks do not and repeated The Former Guy’s false claim that the 2020 election was rigged.

“I hate to tell you this, I might scare you, but I and my staff, none of us, once wore a mask in my clinic,” he told the crowd, reported The Huffington Post. “And how many problems did we have in our clinic from that? Zero.”

The medical board also found that the MAGAt doctor prescribed “high doses of opioids to patients who may not have required such strong and addictive medication.”
