Maryland State Police medical director resigns

A physician in the Maryland State resigned after ties to a felon-run erectile dysfunction clinic got exposed. The medical director had left in the past week after he got involved with an unlicensed, felon-run erectile dysfunction clinic accused of a penile injury. Dr. Donald William Alves had stepped down on 3rd March about his appearance before a disciplinary committee leading to his medical license being revoked. The Maryland Board of Physicians charged Alves in December due to his unprofessional conduct and practicing medicine, which he did with an unauthorized person at a clinic plagued by scam allegations.

Alves’s statement was recorded, and charging documents followed.

The charging documents stated, “The Guy’s Clinic advertised that its doctors would provide a treatment plan that would “safely awaken your sex life in just one visit.” On questioning by the state investigators, Alves said that the clinic “fills an itch between the little blue pill, when the oral agents aren’t working, and for individuals who aren’t ready to get surgical procedures done. So it provides them with injection therapy.” The Guy’s Clinic in Baltimore County, Maryland, started employing Alves in 2016, paying him $250 per week. This was to supervise a physician’s assistant. According to the Board of Physicians, Alves told investigators he was unaware that the Clinic had presented him as its medical director. However, they will later concede that he’d maintain business ties to the entity. The physician’s assistant even offered injections to the clients without their permission. Also, it was found that the owner wrote guidelines for the Clinic that was not licensed to practice medicine. This even included an instruction that every patient receives injections of “mostly non-FDA approved” drugs that dilate blood vessels and “cause the patients to obtain immediate erections.”

A patient’s statement recorded

A patient told the Maryland Board of Physicians in 2020 that he was hospitalized for a 5-day-long erection following an injection at the Clinic. The patient even said that the medical doctordidn’t’t saw the patients who had visited the Clinic, and another person said that it was a scam organization. The Securities and Exchange Commission in 2018 had even describeGuy’s’s Clinic owner Mark Thomas Johnson as “a “recidivist violator of the federal securities law.” Johnson was even convicted of securities fraud and conspiracy to commit securities fraud in 2010. They even faced additional SEC action in 2018 for orchestrating a scheme. It has defrauded $5 million from approximately 50 investors. A Maryland State Police spokesperson had confirmed Alves’s’ resignation to the media. Still, they refused to comment further on it as the Maryland Board of Physicians is dealing with the issue.
