Where’s the outrage over this innocent child? Where is Spike Lee, the media, pundits and riots in the streets over this injustice?
UPDATED- 3/29/12 4:54 pm : Dr. Michael Pfeiffer and Dr. Scott Nigel Myers should be under DC Medical Board Ethics Investigation, yet they under investigation for covering up for father and colleague” Or something like that…. the issue is that Pfeiffer and Myers, the colleague-Friend who is NOT giving Ariana-Leilani the life-saving medicine or toxicology. The complaints filed against them (4 in all) were buried by the Board of medicine. Now the DC Board of medicine’s lack of ethics in regards to the Ariana-Leilani medical complaint dismissal without investigation is now under scrutiny. “Conflicted Board Members Circle Wagons.”
“The newest complaint was closed, not investigated and now being reconsidered against Dr. Scott Nigel Myers at the Children’s Cancer Center at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital, for not following medical standards care and treatment, including the only medicine, “nupogen” (G-CSF) to treat severe chronic neutropenia and to fully investigate the cause including full toxicology exam.”

Medical professionals appointed to D.C.’s Board of Medicine by the mayor are expected to fully investigate complaints made against licensed physicians and other health care providers. They are to take disciplinary action if warranted. But now a major cover-up can further put her life in danger – will they cover their asses at Ariana-Leilani’s expense?
Examiner local editorial: Conflicted board members circle the wagons
But this peer-review process, designed to protect both the public and health care providers themselves, doesn’t work as intended when board members circle the wagons to protect their own.
That may have happened at the board’s Jan. 25 meeting, when the board refused to consider the latest in a string of complaints against a MedStar Georgetown University Hospital physician, claiming it contained no “new” information.
Attorney Roy Morris, who filed the complaint on behalf of the noncustodial mother of a Ward 3 youngster, told The Washington Examiner that the complaint did in fact contain new data never previously reviewed by the board.
The Georgetown doctor in question was already the subject of previous complaints for refusing to administer weekly doses of G-CSF — the medically accepted treatment for this child’s severe chronic neutropenia, an extremely rare and potentially fatal immune condition. But the new element in this complaint was that the same doctor had allegedly prescribed the 8-year-old girl an attention-deficit (hyperactivity) disorder drug that could make this condition worse.
