It was the Lower Rhine Medical Association itself that filed a complaint against Dr. Stéphane Gayet in February 2022.
This former practitioner of Strasbourg University Hospitals (Lower Rhine) worked as an infectious disease specialist and hygienist before retiring in November 2021.
In question, “unusual prescriptions issued in the context of long Covid treatment”, denounced by various doctors and pharmacists, make known to the registry office of the Disciplinary Chamber of the Order of the Grand Est at the address Strasbourg news. This decided the radiation by Stéphane Gayet, who therefore can no longer legally practice medicine in France.
A “significant risk of adverse events”
To justify the irradiation, the highest sanction that the Medical Association can adopt, the latter believes that the “prescriptions, due to the atypical combination of drugs prescribed, entailed a significant risk of adverse events, even in some cases dangerous for life patients. ”Note, however, that no deaths have been reported.
Dr. Gayet is accused of two serious shortcomings: that of providing care “based on data acquired by science” and “prohibiting (…) putting the patient at unjustified risk”. Two legal obligations enshrined in the Health Code.
Finally, it is “the lack of awareness […] the potentially dangerous nature of its prescriptions, as well as the absence of any scientific basis for the controversial prescriptions “, which, according to the Chamber, justifies this radical decision.
According to her, they are unrelated to the debate over hydroxychloroquine, a substance promoted by Dr. Didier Raoult, in a treatment for Covid, which has been banned since May 2020.
