Dr. Mary Talley Bowden Faces Texas Medical Board Over COVID Vaccine and Ivermectin
Charged for treating unvaccinated patients, such as Sheriff Deputy Jason Jones by Houston Methodist and Texas Health Huguley hospitals
You were the first to read about Houston Dr. Mary Talley Bowden who declared she would only treat unvaccinated COVID patients because they were refused care by other doctors. Since Bowden went public in Nov. 2021, she has become a national spokeswoman against vaccine mandates and in favor of using ivermectin (IVM) to treat COVID. Now her medical license is being challenged.

After treating over 5,500 patients with COVID, Bowden is facing the Texas Medical Board (TMB) for complaints against her from two Texas hospitals. She is not accused of harming a single patient.
Doctor v Medical Board
“I’m still treating my patients while forced to fight for my license,” Bowden told Friday after an “informal” hearing with members of the TMB.
“People close to me have encouraged me to give up for my own well-being, but I’ve witnessed too much and could not live with myself if I didn’t keep going. I did nothing wrong and will fight for what’s right - which is caring for patients.”
It serves as a precedent for all of our nation’s medical boards
The doctor is facing complaints from Houston Methodist Hospital and Texas Health Huguely Hospital in Fort Worth.
Bowden told me the board offered her a settlement. She would have to admit guilt, pay a $5,000 fine, take eight hours of Continuing Medical Education and a jurisprudence exam. She refused.
“I will not plead guilty to crimes I didn't commit,” the Stanford-educated doctor told me. She is pursuing a public hearing so that there are “no anonymous accusations” and she will be able to bring her own witnesses. Dr. Bowden is on Substack
Hospital “Killing Protocol”
Texas Health Huguley complained to the board over Bowden treating dying Sheriff Deputy Jason Jones by prescribing IVM without having hospital privileges.
“Dr. Bowden is a courageous warrior. While hospitals practiced their death protocol that killed hundreds of thousands, Dr. Bowden treated over 5,500 COVID patients and saved their lives,” Parlato said Friday.
“She is being targeted and investigated by the TMB in an effort to convince the public that their killing protocol never happened. They are trying to discredit and silence her from speaking the truth and exposing their crimes. It won’t work,” said the patients' rights attorney.
Ivermectin for Deputy Jones
Bowden told me that she told the medical board that the hospital “created unnecessary roadblocks in the process” in the back and forth in court about her getting temporary privileges to prescribe medications.
“A patient fighting for his life should never have to hire a lawyer and seek help outside of the hospital to try safe therapeutics if he or she wishes,” Bowden said.
“Jason Jones was treated like a prisoner. His wishes were ignored by his physicians and the administrators at Texas Huguley hospital. His wife had every right to ask me to help. I am being punished for trying to save his life.”
Texas Health Huguley’s spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment about the TMB hearing.
Hospital Refuses Right to Try
Bowden denies that she treated Jones in the hospital which would require temporary privileges.
“I didn’t march into the hospital and write orders on the chart for the nurses to carry out,” Bowden said. “I gave a second opinion to his wife Erin. Jason's prognosis was very poor and hospice was being discussed. I felt ethically obligated to honor her request to try everything possible to save him, so prescribed ivermectin in addition to other medications.”
Jason Jones was treated like a prisoner.
“The public is on to the fraud committed by hospitals and the medical establishment, including medical boards which have become a politicized arm of the establishment,” said attorney Parlato. “The only thing Dr. Bowden is guilty of is saving lives, and our clients, Jason and Erin Jones, are truly grateful.”
You’ll remember the hospital called the police when a nurse came to administer the IVM to Jones that Bowden prescribed. In this story, Erin Jones told me off the record at the time that she ended up secretly giving IVM to her husband in the hospital. Jones came off the ventilator and made a miraculous recovery.
Unvaccinated & Hospitals
Methodist Hospital has been publicly attacking Bowden since she came out in defense of the unvaccinated and taking IVM. While Bowden sent an email to her patients about only treating the unvaccinated, she didn’t enforce it.
According to Bowden, Methodist reported her to the board because the hospital claimed the physician resigned her privileges while under investigation for an issue related to patient care. However, Bowden said that the information given to her by Methodist shows she was never technically under investigation.
“They were questioning my qualifications - whether or not I had the vaccine - and not anything to do with patient care,” said Bowden. Methodist was the first hospital in the country to mandate the COVID vaccines for all its staff.
Methodist’s spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment on the Texas Medical Board hearing.
I will not plead guilty to crimes I didn't commit
“I also explained that I resigned because of the gut punch I received when Methodist reported my suspension to The Houston Chronicle and announced on Twitter that I was spreading dangerous misinformation,” Bowden said of her testimony to the board.
“I had absolutely no interest in affiliating with them going forward.”
Methodist denied that it refuses to treat unvaccinated patients.
Attorney Parlato explained that Bowden’s fight against the Texas Medical Board has national importance for other doctors.
“Medical Boards across this country are investigating the real hero doctors who broke from the establishment and their killing protocol, and utilized lifesaving medication during the COVID pandemic,” said Parlato.
“Dr. Bowden’s case is one of the first in the nation, which makes this significant. If Dr. Bowden is successful in quashing this investigation, it serves as a precedent for all of our nation’s medical boards.”
Parlato said that if Bowden loses, it will set a legal precedent that doctors can’t continue to prescribe medications using their own judgment.
“If the medical establishment can sanction a reputable doctor for prescribing medication such as ivermectin — which science has proven in 95 clinical studies is an effective, lifesaving drug — then the medical profession will be changed forever.”
