The Fight to Allow Doctors to “Doctor” Heads to a Virginia Court, by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC)

Doctors now have to go to court to fight for a right that used to be taken for granted: their right to use their best medical judgment. From the FLCCC at

Paul Marik, MD, one of the most highly published critical care physicians in the world and the Director of the ICU at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, was recently prohibited by Sentara Healthcare from administering a range of highly effective COVID-19 treatments to critically ill patients—the same treatments he has successfully used to reduce COVID deaths in the ICU by as much as 50%. The result of the prohibition has been a sharp increase in patient mortality. Because Dr. Marik can no longer stand by while patients needlessly die without proper treatment, he has filed a lawsuit to allow him and his colleagues to administer the combination of FDA-approved drugs and other therapies that has saved thousands of critically ill COVID-19 patients in the last 18 months.

The Complaint—filed November 9 in the Circuit Court for the City of Norfolk, Virginia—states that Sentara Healthcare is “preventing terminally ill COVID patients from exercising their right to choose and to receive safe, potentially life-saving treatment determined to be appropriate for them by their attending physician.”

Dr. Marik is the co-founder of the non-profit organization, the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), formed in March 2020.  The sole mission of the FLCCC is to develop the most effective COVID-19 treatment protocols in the world. To date, FLCCC has developed treatment protocols for prevention, early treatment, hospital treatment, and long haul COVID syndrome.

Dr. Marik’s co-founders consist of a group of acclaimed clinical experts—including Dr. Pierre Kory and Dr. Joseph Varon who speak about their colleague, Dr. Marik, and the lawsuit below.

DR. KORY: Dr. Marik is an extraordinary clinician, possessed of stellar medical and academic credentials, and an exceptional breadth and depth of experience as a physician. More specifically, I believe that the COVID treatment protocols that he has developed and prescribed work and have saved patients’ lives.

Dr. Marik, an attending physician with widely recognized excellence and expertise, has been prevented by hospital administration at Sentara Healthcare System from using those protocols and their components and advising his patients of their safety and efficacy in accordance with his seasoned medical judgment in order to alleviate the suffering of his patients and avoid unnecessary deaths from COVID.
