Qualification: Stella Immanuel graduated in 1990 from the University of Calabar in Nigeria and completed a residency at a Bronx, N.Y., hospital. She currently practices Emergency Medicine in Katy, Texas.
Current Licensing Status: Licensed
Resident: Houston, Texas
Existing Complaints: None listed publically, malpractice suit in Louisiana.
Stella Immanuel was catapulted to fame earlier this year by her claims about hydroxychloroquine as a cure for Covid-19. Almost immediately after a video of her making the claims went viral, the Texas Medical Board issued an open warning letter to medical professionals not to offer treatments as a cure for Covid-19. To be clear, NO CURE EXISTS.
Immanuel is also active as a pastor and claims have emerged where she links diesease to demonic possesion. Having sex with a demon can lead to cysts and endometriosis, according to Immanuel. Whilst she isnt the only person who believes this nonsense, Medika would suggest that a doctor who readily mixes esoteric fairy tales and medicine should stick to the pulpit and steer well clear of actual patients with diseases rooted in the real world. Immanuel also believes masks offer no protection against the spread of Covid-19, contrary to all the scientific evidence supporting their use.
Her dialogue and message is a mix of religious fantasy, aliens, spiritualism, pseudo-science, and conspiracy theories. She is dangerous and in our opinion not fit to dispense reliable or trustworthy medical advice. We recommend seeking medical advice from an alternate provider. She is a founder member of a group called America’s Frontline Doctors and our advice relating to her would by association extend to her colleagues in this group.
Read the articles below and if you’re still in any doubt that Immanuel is a few sandwiches short of a picnic, here’s a page from her website with instructions for a prayer to counter witchcraft. Perhaps the most telling indictment against her is the menu on the left of her homepage, where homosexuals and sexual deviants are happily bundled together. Homophobic, misguided, and clearly not rooted in the real world. Avoid if you are serious about your health.
