Is the Mayo Clinic an evil entity? This is the second story I've read that makes me believe so. The first being their attacks on employees. Make that decision for yourself.


Link to Mayo Clinic story


BY NANETTE HOLT January 12, 2022


Florida’s First District Court of Appeal has expedited the process to decide a lawsuit filed by the family of a COVID-19 patient on a ventilator at a Jacksonville hospital.

Attorneys for Mayo Clinic Florida have until 10 a.m. Jan. 13 to respond to the appeal filed by the family of 70-year-old Daniel Pisano.

Then the family’s attorneys will have until Jan. 14 to file additional arguments. At that time, a three-panel judge could be appointed to decide the case.

Mayo Clinic has said Pisano, who has been on a ventilator 22 days, has a slim chance of survival.

But an outside doctor, who is not affiliated with Mayo Clinic, testified in an emergency hearing Dec. 30 that there’s still a good chance to save him—although there’s no time to delay, the physician said.

In a desperate attempt to save their loved one, the Pisano family has begged Mayo Clinic to try a protocol widely used by independent physicians around the country and developed by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance.

Mayo Clinic officials have refused and attorneys have fought the family’s wishes vigorously in court.

Claudia Pisano, Daniel Pisano’s wife of 51 years, and their son, Chris, have power of attorney and legally have the right to ask for the treatment of their choice, their attorneys have argued. But Daniel Pisano is declining fast and running out of time, they say.

The family’s trusted doctor, Dr. Eduardo Balbona of Jacksonville, testified that in order to save him the hospital must quickly allow treatment—with ivermectin and other drugs and supplements—he’s used to help dozens of critically ill COVID-19 patients recover.

Being on the ventilator is doing harm to Pisano and other patients fighting COVID-19, Balbona testified.

After considering the testimony in the three-hour hearing, Judge Marianne Aho, of Florida’s Fourth Judicial Circuit, denied the family’s plea to force Mayo Clinic doctors to step aside and let Balbona treat their dying loved one.

Aho wrote, “An individual’s right to privacy is one of self-determination, the right to accept or refuse. It is not a right to demand a particular treatment. It is not a right to substitute one’s judgment as to which treatments must be made available by others. There is no right, constitutional or otherwise, of a patient to substitute one’s judgment for a medical professional.”

The family disagrees saying the Florida Patient’s Bill of Rights gives them the right to choose between treatment options and they’ve offered to release Mayo Clinic from all liability in following through with that care. They filed an appeal Jan. 9.

After Mayo Clinic submits a response by Jan. 13, attorneys for the family will have until 3 p.m. on Jan. 14 to add to their arguments.

Meanwhile, on Jan. 12 Daniel Pisano clung to life in a drug-induced coma, on a ventilator, and on his sixth day of dialysis for kidneys that have shut down.

Doctors monitoring his chart for the family through an online portal say his lab work suggests internal bleeding, says attorney Nick Whitney, of the AndersonGlenn law firm in Jacksonville.

For days, Chris and Claudia Pisano have begged Mayo Clinic to do a CT scan to identify the cause of the bleeding.

“Mayo has refused, saying the CT scan is not medically appropriate,” Whitney says.

Mayo Clinic officials have not responded to requests for comment. Attorneys for the hospital have asked for their filings in the case be sealed from pubic view, citing privacy concerns.


The family’s search to find a hospital able to take Daniel Pisano has led only to dead-ends, Whitney said.

Still the Pisanos hope to continue raising money through donations to keep their legal fight going and to be able to pay$40,000 to $50,000 for air ambulance transport.

As of Jan. 12, 142 donors had given more than $28,000 toward the effort.

Since news of the case began spreading other families facing similar heartbreak have reached out to Whitney and to Jeff Childers, of Childers Law in Gainesville, another attorney on the Pisano legal team.

And on Jan. 12, a patient was driving from Chicago to Florida to meet with Balbona.

Whitney said it’s not easy for patients to find a doctor like Balbona willing to step up and make an alternative treatment plan for a patient hospitalized with COVID-19. And that’s the first step, he’s told those who have contacted him.

Families desperate for help say they don’t know where to turn, he said.

When they reach out for help through independent doctors, they’re told that the person can’t take on more cases, he added.

“The bottleneck, in my opinion, is that physicians who are willing to do this are overwhelmed,” Whitney said. “There’s a need for intensive care physicians to come forward and say they’re willing to treat with ivermectin.”

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has posted strict warnings against using ivermectin to treat COVID-19.

More than 90 peer-reviewed studies have been published, which supporters say demonstrates the drug’s efficacy at treating patients suffering from COVID-19.


Part of the frustration families face when they’re seeking alternative treatments for COVID-19 surrounds the Right to Try Act signed into law May 30, 2018.

It gives patients access to some unapproved treatments, if they have been diagnosed with life-threatening diseases or conditions, have tried all approved treatment options, and are unable to participate in a clinical trial to access certain unapproved treatments, according to the FDA.

But ivermectin and other drugs used as part of the FLCCC protocol for treating COVID-19 have already been approved by the FDA for some uses, so they don’t qualify to be used under the Right to Try Act.

“Right to Try only applies to experimental medications,” says Childers. “It says nothing about FDA-approved meds like fluvoxamine, ivermectin, or hydroxychloroquine.”

The Mayo Clinic is a nonprofit American academic medical center employing more than 4,500 physicians and scientists and 58,400 other staff members across campuses in Florida, Minnesota, and Arizona.

Hospitals are corporate profit centers no health care. They make big bonuses for putting you on a respirator and keeping you there as long as they can and then they get another bonus when you die. Hospitals are making big money killing people.

Wow that is really sad

Both parties have dragged their ass on that deal. If the family and patient had been more responsible on the front end and had stores of ivermectin laid back for this scenario, that and other OTC and vitamins. Maybe they wouldnt be in this predicament.

I know most of us in this audience are the type that probably has contingencies in place ahead of time.

Once you commit to the asylum, they got your ass

People don't want to believe this could happen in America, but corporations only care about profit.

slum, it is sad. Especially when you consider how inexpensive it is to have therapeutics and supplements on hand. Several weeks ago I extended my store of Ivermectin through Jeffers.com. At $6.99/ea for the 1.87 oz horse paste, I laid in another year's worth for a little over $50 with free shipping.

And yeah, those asylums? You don't want to be going in there staring at a ventilator. Those people are there to kill you. They ought to be strung up, but to listen to them and the commies tell it, they're doing God's work with those ventilators.

I can tell you one thing, though. Doctors around here now get weak in the knees when I start grilling them about treatment protocols and vaccine efficacy. They get on their bicycles and suddenly have somewhere else they need to be. 😄

If your explanation doesn't make sense, think of it from a different perspective.

This isn't limited to only respirators (vents?), it applies to everything they do.

If you are over 18 and don't have a Living Will, you should get one. If something goes wrong with you your family may mean well, but the hospital people will string them up for every cent they can get with you as the means. A Living Will is one of the few ways you can stop them.

All this crap goes back up stream to fauci and the feds. The feds put a squeeze play on the hospitals and the Docs, who are helpless in the fight. Govt agencies hold payments and licensing over their heads and DICTATE to them what will happen. fauci decided to squash the common therapeutics and it has trickled down. If Mayo violated these mandates, feds wouldn't hesitatee to shut them down and let their other patients suffer the consequences.

When this is all said and done, it will be alarmingly clear just how dangerous and evil it is having govt run your life.

I don't see an issue...if they want Ivermectin stop pissing about and give it to them.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.
