Special Purpose Examination (SPEX) is an exam forced on physicians who have been out of practice for a defined period of time. This exam is also given to physicians when their fund of knowledge comes into question. Boards of Medicine provide minimal direction in the contents of this exam. The Federation of State Medical Boards, the creator of the SPEX, does not provide much assistance to help potential examinees pass this test. Therefore, it is up to the physician to seek help to prepare for this very unfair exam. Many aspects of this exam’s contents reflect back to our medical school training decades ago. Books on the market are generally antiquated or do not represent the exam’s true contents. With the latter stated this was Dr. Davis’ rationale to create a concise course to help those confronting this exam to have an improved chance of receiving a passing grade.

Failing the SPEX test two, three or more times is common. Physicians contact Dr. Davis frequently to help them raise their level of awareness to this unfair test’s contents. Though the Federation of State Boards changes this test’s format frequently, its core contents remain the same. More than 12 medical subjects are represented with questions that challenge the examinee’s intellect and memory. Certain styles of questions are presented which an examinee would never expect to see on this exam. This course covers areas most important to the test taker and provides an extensive overview of this exam prior to the examinee sitting for it.

Dr. Mark Davis is intimately familiar with the Special Purpose Examination having mentored numerous physicians towards a passing grade. Dr. Davis has accrued his knowledge of the SPEX by interactions with many who have taken this test and direct inspection of the exam’s contents. Do not go blind into this exam.

The fee is 199 dollars for this course, which is approximately 2 hours in length. Scheduling can be done by contacting the email site: platomd@gmail.com Thank you. Mark Davis, MD

One more time in history a crucifixion of a righteous man is occurring for all the World to see. Brett Kavanaugh has been set upon by numerous demons, we call Democrats, to side tract his rightfully earned ascendency to the Supreme Court. In the final hours of the nominating process an incendiary bomb was thrown into the mix by the devil’s helpers themselves. Senator Diane Feinstein received notification from a person claiming to have been sexually abused by Judge Kavanaugh 36 years ago. Under psycho therapy Dr. Ford recalled painful moments of a sexual assault, during her high school years, who she believes was caused by Brett Kavanaugh. Though she claims others in the room that night visualized the assault all of her so-called witnesses either deny being in such a place or do not recall the event. Without corroborating evidence Dr. Ford contacted Senator Feinstein who sat on this information until the very last moment. Why? Because all other efforts to block Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination failed. Once Feinstein leaked Dr. Ford’s communication more concocted abuse stories emerged against Judge Kavanaugh. None of these revelations came with corroborating evidence.

Dr. Christine Ford’s well-rehearsed testimony before Congress failed the smell test. As further information leaked out a multitude of nontruths are being attributed to her. These include but are not limited to claustrophobia which keeps her from flying, not true. Her friends will not confirm her story, though she stated they would. When asked who is funding all aspects of her assault on Judge Kavanaugh she noticeably hesitated providing quasi answers to that question. We now know her lawyers and other political operatives are providing the funding. Worse she cannot remember exactly where the potential sexual attack took place nor the day, date, time, address and who brought her to the location in question. In plain speech the accuser can remember who attacked her in a vivid manner yet no other facts around it. Either Dr. Ford is a pawn in this inquisition of Judge Kavanaugh or a willing participant who has ulterior motives for coming up with her concocted story 36 years after the fact, if indeed the action so describe occurred.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is undergoing a present-day crucifixion, by some of the nastiest people in the Senate. None of these demons could hold up under the scrutiny given him. Our Great President nominated Judge Kavanaugh after he was reviewed and approved by numerous legal groups, who gave him sterling ratings. Sadly, the circus inflicted on Judge Kavanaugh is not over. A seventh FBI review is underway. Maryland authorities have indicated they would review all materials generated by the FBI and others if Dr. Ford swears out criminal warrant for actions her mind perceived happened. This could be the ace the Democrats are holding back for the last minute. No matter what the outcome a righteous man has been tarnished for eternity. May God condemn all those who brought this horrible action against Brett Kavanaugh and bless those who tried to soften its impact on him and his family.

Maryland’s Health Department Corrupt Then and Now Article One Doctor Lois Leonard

Series: Corruption in The Maryland Board of Physicians
and The Maryland Health Department
Maryland’s Health Department Corrupt then and now Article One Doctor Lois Leonard

By Mark Davis, MD Journalist, Author, Media Consultant

Decades may pass yet corrupt government entities linger. Unaccountable to no one their appointed soldiers march through time with the venomous bite of institutionalized authority destroying the very framework they are supposed to oversee. One such designee was Doctor Lois Leonard. Her horrific death from cancer in 1993 does not excuse her of actions in which she was involved several years earlier.

Doctor Leonard was empowered to cite nursing homes for inadequacies in nursing and physician care by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (now the Maryland Health Department). No medical or surgical case was too complex for Doctor Leonard to critique. Doctor Leonard’s questionable reviews came under scrutiny when she cited the Poplar Manor Nursing Home.

Mark Davis MD purchased the Poplar Manor Nursing Home with 12 investors, most of them Doctors, in August of 1989 after being the facility’s medical director for 8 years. Amongst the investors were two surgeons who provided the surgical care to the home’s residents. They were responsible for a range of treatments including decubitus care. Additionally, the facility enlisted the aid of a neurologist, an endocrinologist, offsite care with a cardiologist, two podiatrists visited regularly, a dermatologist and several other medical consultants. Dr. Leonard believed she was capable of critiquing this collective set of professionals. Antithetically she turned out to be a CHARLATAN, hired by the Maryland Health Department, which was more worried with its public image than the people they claimed to help. Carol Benner, Dr. Leonard’s immediate supervisor, bathed in the glow of the negative reports her Doctor and staff generated, by releasing these reports to the media before the nursing home in question received them, in this case Poplar Manor. Worse Benner’s office was aware Poplar Manor was on a track to lose its certification as a viable nursing facility, yet withheld this information from the prospective owners, though requested by their attorneys prior to sale.

Poplar Manor was under siege by the Health Department’s division of Long-Term care from the day it transferred ownership. Documentary evidence has come into the possession of this journalist displaying clearly Poplar Manor was in the Health Department’s sights for closure. Perhaps the reason Ms. Benner’s office withheld this documentary evidence was the prior ownership included Phillip Greene, a former high ranking official in the Maryland Health Department. Once Mr. Greene received his money for the facility in August of 1989 Dr. Leonard and her team came in full force placing the facility on a 90 track to closure. We can only venture a guess how deep the relationship was between the government officials managing the nursing home review and Mr. Greene.

Maryland Department of Long-Term care refused, several times, to provide Dr. Leonard’s resume. In a case filed with the United States District Court of Maryland, Civil No. MJG-93-1242 Dr. Leonard provided an affidavit to the court. In that affidavit it was clear why her credentials were withheld. Dr. Leonard did not have the abilities or training to survey the physicians she was tasked with reviewing. She did not have the appropriate skills in Internal Medicine or Surgery even for the most basic review. In more restrain tones she was a shill for the Maryland Office of Long-Term care. On her written and or oral word nursing homes, such as Poplar Manor, were forced to close. In the event a physician filed a complaint regarding Dr. Leonard’s dubious reports, more shills would follow behind her, as was the case with Poplar Manor.

Obsessed with closing Poplar Manor Dr. Leonard fabricated several reports claiming the care in the facility was horrific. To justify her baseless reviews two more shills were brought in from University of Maryland to cover her tracks, Drs. Timothy Keay and George Taler. Neither physician had the intensity of training to perform in depth nursing home reviews. Their actions will be discussed in article 2 of this series along with material misrepresentations made by them.

Dr. Lois Leonard’s fraudulent reports display a person who was not qualified to place a band aid on a patient. Yet these reports gave the State of Maryland ammunition to close Poplar Manor Nursing Home after state operatives fleeced its bank accounts, forced the dismissal of nearly 200 employees, displaced 157 nursing home residents and crushed the careers of many including this author. Ironically after the state fed false news reports to the media, in an effort smear its ownership, there were no malpractice suits filed against the home, it’s staff of physicians or this author. The question which this author has the answer to is: Who in the State of Maryland Hierarchy was behind this concerted effort to destroy a viable nursing facility? Follow this series to receive the startling answer.

Beaten in Court Maryland Board of Physicians Hides Their Loss from the Public

Beaten in Court Maryland Board of Physicians hides their loss from the Public

Absent from this once great newspaper, the Baltimore Sun, was the win by Doctor Mark Geier against the Maryland Board of Physicians (Board) in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County (case# 371761 civil division). In his Opinion Judge Ronald Rubin sliced and diced the Board of Physicians for breach of medical privacy, for providing an array of false testimony to the court, failing to preserve emails, providing false witness concerning these emails and utilizing the Board’s legal machinery to deprecate a physician in the public domain.

Judge Rubin stated in his opinion: “If their (referring to the Board) testimony were to be believed, which the court does not, it is the worst case of collective memory amnesia in the history of Maryland government and on par with the collective memory failure on display at the Watergate hearings.” Judge Rubin was not aware of the Board’s history of corruption through suppressing evidence, utilizing legal chicanery and cherry-picking regulations to remove unpopular physicians from practice.

Baltimore Sun archives contain a series of articles hostile to Doctor Mark Geier. Yet not one word of the Board’s defeat in the Montgomery County Circuit Court. Beyond the archives this intrepid reporter attempted to contact several editors at the Baltimore Sun for an explanation why Judge Rubin’s opinion was not published on or about December 2017. Silence was the only answer I received. Perhaps this selective reporting is business as usual between a State of Maryland administrative agency and a newspaper that should have folded long ago.

Judge Rubin’s toxic decision against the Board is now on appeal in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. Fourteen members of the Board, the Board’s lead attorney and its chief investigator were ordered to pay a total of 2.5 million dollars to Dr. Geier and his family. The current court, where this appeal is to be heard, is well-known for falling on the sword for the Board of Physicians. Facts do not matter to the Appeals’ judges only political loyalties and agendas. This court is well known for legislating from the bench.

A majority of physicians in Maryland are not aware of the Board’s irreverent behavior, as noted by Judge Rubin. Baltimore Sun’s blackout of this case is both sad and expected for this left ring rag. Worse none of the major radio stations covered this trial or Judge Rubin’s final opinion. Therefore, it is a moral imperative to inform the public, especially the physician community, the Maryland Board of Physicians is tainted from the top down requiring inspection, realignment and reconstruction by those empowered to do so. More to come.

Chaos has come to the American Presidency. Donald Trump has allowed the current judicial circus to continue too long. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has stepped far beyond his mandate to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election. Clearly a witch hunt too many people have suffered during Mueller’s inquisition. Prosecutorial misconduct is rampant and no one is being held accountable. Congressional committees are being stonewalled by Rod Rosenstein for information concerning this massive probe of the President. Rosenstein’s appointment of Mueller appears to be questionable. Worse, his reasons for doing so appear partisan in nature. One of the best Oval Office occupants in a generation President Trump must assert leadership to bring this inquisition to a conclusion immediately. Firing Mueller and Rosenstein is the proper action in light of their illicit activities. Warned not to fire Mueller both sides of the political isle should examine their motivations for cautioning Trump on a decision which is long overdue. In the event Congress attempts to impeach DT they should know tens of millions have his back. Time is now to fire Mueller and Rosenstein. Please comment if you agree or believe otherwise.

Maryland Saturated with Crime Drugs and Corruption

Geographically Maryland’s beauty has few competitors. Behind this topographical treasure lies a reckless government which has driven this state into the desperate times it finds itself. Opioid use has risen exponentially in the last decade. Prescribed like cndy by various physician controlled entities few states have more deaths from this class of drugs than Maryland. Grim statistics cannot be hidden by the pleasant smiles of corrupt politicians. Several thousand went to their graves last year as our state representatives carried on business as usual. As legislative efforts failed in Annapolis to rein in this crisis emergency rooms could not find enough body bags to manage the overflow. With the approval of Marijuana this gateway drug will bring health facilities to their knees.

Legalizing Marijuana based on quasi research displaying this substance has medicinal value displays how moronic the political class is in this corrupt state. Worse outlets to sell this chemical garbage were given over to a group of well- connected political elitists. This entitled class was provided with dispensing licenses utilizing the excuse they will bring to market a purer product than those who have not coughed up donations to their campaigns. As I have advised physicians on the radio and in my articles Maryland Marijuana laws are a minefield for physicians. Liability will be placed on the heads of physicians once accidents, deaths and criminality related to this drug occur. As of this writing most Maryland physicians are hesitant to prescribe this Class One drug.

Maryland’s newest problem is a synthetic version of Marijuana which has been introduced into the state. Laced with poison, that causes a person to bleed profusely, numerous hospitalizations have been reported around state. As usual the most vulnerable are affected. Adding to this problem is the vast number of people dying from alcohol, drugs exclusive of opioids and chemicals favored by the addicted class, as reflected in the daily emergency room census of each acute care facility. Kudos to acute care health personnel who have done a magnificent job in the face of great odds inflicted on them by wayward politicians, a medical board that does not properly oversee its physician hoard and a pharmaceutical industry that pumps this crap into the state.

In a circuitous way many profit by the massive drug and alcohol problem left uncontrolled by a government that supports this catastrophe. A vast social-welfare system would be undercut if these addicting chemicals were to leave the scene. No doubt there are pockets full of money that do not want Maryland cured of these ills. Therefore politicians discuss the drug problem openly yet few move to correct it. Corruption is solidly embedded in Annapolis and the administrative entities it empowers. The answer is simple. Until we remove the scum who sit on the high seats in Maryland deaths will continue to mount and the next one could be one of our loved ones.

SPEX Questions ask a Tutor who knows the Special Purpose Examination




Special Purpose Examination (SPEX) is complex, difficult and unfair to those required to take it. Many people who contact me have already been in practice for decades when their respective medical boards issue them an order to take the SPEX. State Medical Board’s provide little to no information on this test. Federation of States Medical Boards does a very poor job in their literature describing this extensive test. Books on the market are generally antiquated and not in tune with the 336 questions on this exam. Going into this exam without guidance has been to the detriment of many physicians.  Failure rate is very high with many candidates taking this exam  multiple times. Hire a tutor who knows this test through the feedback he receives and his intrinsic knowledge of this exam. To contact Mark Davis, MD:

SPEX: Prepare Properly with a Review By Mark Davis MD

SPEX: Prepare Properly with a Review by Mark Davis MD

Forced to take the Special Purpose Examination (SPEX) by your state medical board, prepare yourself with someone knowledgeable in this exam, Mark Davis MD. Through interactions with a multitude of examinees Dr. Davis has a bank of current information which can help potential test candidates with their studies. Dr. Davis’ review encompasses question content and subject matter on current exams. SPEX is a complex exam consisting of 336 questions taken in sections over a one day time period. This exam’s fail rate is very high and state medical boards do not provide candidates with information helpful to pass this exam. In a sense the SPEX is designed to fail because the exam requires a bank of information not in a physician’s general readings or continuing education courses. Examinees have failed this exam, in some cases, 3 or more times. With an extraordinary cost both in time to prepare and test entry fee a SPEX an examinee should advantage him or herself with the latest information available. Most books on the market are outdated and should be purchased cautiously. Enable yourself with someone familiar with the mechanics of this exam, Dr. Mark Davis. To contact Dr. Davis;
