Quack Scale - Five Ducks

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.

Court filings reviewed by the Houston Chronicle also reveal she was recently sued in Louisiana for medical malpractice in a case involving a woman who died after being treated in Immanuel’s care.

Publication – The Daily Beast: Author Will Sommer, July 28, 2020, Trump’s New Favorite COVID Doctor Believes in Alien DNA, Demon Sperm, and Hydroxychloroquine . Verdict: Immanuel’s bizarre medical ideas don’t stop with demon sex in dreams. In a 2015 sermon that laid out a supposed Illuminati plan hatched by “a witch” to destroy the world using abortion, gay marriage, and children’s toys, among other things, Immanuel claimed that DNA from space aliens is currently being used in medicine. 

Immanuel, a pediatrician and a religious minister, has a history of making bizarre claims about medical topics and other issues. She has often claimed that gynecological problems like cysts and endometriosis are in fact caused by people having sex in their dreams with demons and witches. 

She alleges alien DNA is currently used in medical treatments, and that scientists are cooking up a vaccine to prevent people from being religious. And, despite appearing in Washington, D.C. to lobby Congress on Monday, she has said that the government is run in part not by humans but by “reptilians” and other aliens.

Publication – BBC: Author Dickens Olewe on July 29, 2020. Stella Immanuel – the doctor behind unproven coronavirus cure claim Verdict: Olewe highlights the connection between Immanuel and America’s Frontline Doctors, political motivation, and Trumps supporters

Some of her other claims include blaming medical conditions on witches and demons – a common enough belief among some evangelical Christians – though she says they have sex with people in a dream world.

Reporting a Healthcare Professional

In the U.S: The American Medical Association lists a very clear and distinct set of guidelines or Code of Conduct for doctors and healthcare professionals. If you feel this code has been breached, or if you have concerns relating to your healthcare provider, you need to get in touch with your state’s licensing board. You can find contact details for all the state boards on this page, The Federation of State Medical Boards

Medwatch is a brand of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and they have teeth with which to bite. You can access their online form for registering a complaint by following this link. At the moment, they’re really hot on fake covid-19 products and treatments and the individuals and websites selling the products or spreading misinformation.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is an excellent place to register your covid related complaints as they have a task team set up specifically to protect consumers against charlatans and quacks. Fill in their online form or call their dedicated National Helpline number. They are also the place to report price gouging and hoarding.

In the U.K: Direct your complaints to the GMC (General Medical Council) via their website, which also makes allowance for Welsh speakers.
