NEWS:Connecticut medical board drops plans for more sanctions against Dr. Jones
The state medical board has withdrawn plans to impose additional penalties against Dr. Jones. The Lyme-treating pediatrician had unable to locate a board-required monitor for his practice. Since he has now found one, the board canceled plans for a hearing on the matter.
Board Drops Plans For More Sanctions Against Lyme Disease Doctor
In March, the Connecticut Medical Examining Board ordered Dr. Charles Ray Jones to find a physician to monitor his practice, part of a disciplinary order that also included placing his license on probation for four years and a $10,000 fine. The order gave Jones 30 days to find a monitor, but as of last month, he had not found one. In response, medical board members raised the possibility of imposing additional penalties and scheduled a hearing on the matter.
But the board withdrew plans for the hearing Tuesday after learning that Jones had found a monitor. Dr. Robert Elisofon, a retired pediatrician, will review 12 of Jones’ patient charts each month. Jones found him with the help of a company that identifies monitors.

What they have put this man through is shameful. They have treated him like a criminal, when on the contrary,he is an angel fighting demons. A true hero!

wow, what a terrible thing they have done to Dr. Jones, a hero in the Lyme community. It is so blatantly obvious that they are making an example out of him to scare away other doctors from treating Lyme patients. I wish Dr. Jones all the best & many more years in his practice treating very sick children. Thanks to him for contesting these charges & standing up for his patients! We love you Dr. Jones!!!!!

What an amazing man Dr. Jones is. Where would the children he has treated be without him? His commitment to children with this disease is unbelieavable given what he's been through. God bless you, Dr. Jones. There is definitely a place in Heaven being held for you. Martie Jacobson, MN

After Dr. Jones ordered Western Blot IgM/IgG Borrelia Burg. for my two minor daughters after phone consultation with myself,a RN, and an ethical Montana physician after misdiagnoses of tick bites with Lyme-definitive Erythema Migrans rashes complicated by Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Erhlichia, Bartonella, Babesia rashes and Mycoplasma ferm. with serious neurological disability and multi-system complications, denied serologies and prompt prophylactic antibiotic treatment by (DPHHS)-contracted (private insurance) Urgent Care and ER physicians – "These diseases are very rare here. The tests are very expensive and basically a waste of time and money. Montana does not have Lyme disease. The tests have to be sent out of state like to the Mayo Clinic.

I can assure you if anyone of those corrupt members of the IDSA (infectious disease society of America) had Lyme or one of their children or family member's had it…..they ridiculous & crazy fake guidelines they've made up just so insurance companies don't have to pay for treatment…instead, people or "boards" want to go after a Dr. who knows what his oath meant & has helped thousands of children. Like what in the hell is wrong with this society….kids are getting better & so you want to punish the doctor for making them better? Yeah, so what there may have been one or two kids in there that never "really" had it, but were treated….but the GREATER good is look at how many more he's helped whereas no one else would. 100 years from now….I KNOW we will be looked at as barbaric in how we allow people, children, our society to die out of pure stupidity & politics.
