A TASMANIAN city doctor who faces losing her medical licence for illegally prescribing unapproved pills has told her patient she's a slave.
Dr Johanna Richardson has been issued with a reprimand by the Therapeutic Goods Board after a complaint by a former patient of hers, who was outraged by the words allegedly used.
Dr Richardson's patient told a review board that she had used a proven treatment method, called Ultherapy, to reduce her face wrinkles and was upset by Dr Richardson's reply.
The woman told the board that Dr Richardson said her tongue looked like "a street dog that had just been kicked".
Dr Richardson, who does not work in Tasmania but is based at a clinic in the state's north, was ordered to hand over her medical licence to the board.
Dr Richardson, who uses Ultherapy to treat patients who suffer from the symptoms of stress, called the treatment method "complementary" and said she only provided it to patients when it was used for licensed treatments.
Her lawyer Mark James told the board that Dr Richardson was "very upset" and that she had engaged him "to state to you that she was not making the allegation, that she was making a complaint against the review board's actions".
Dr Richardson's complaint was that her former patient and the review board were infringing her human rights by telling her she "did not have a right to alternative medicine" and "did not have a right to speak about the legislation".
She also complained that it was her ex-patient who was the victim, not her.
Ms James told the board that Dr Richardson "has every right to do what she's doing and the board would be the last person on earth to tell her she doesn't".
The board said Dr Richardson's patient had a right to have her case heard and told her she could give a written statement.
Dr Richardson was banned from prescribing any further Ultherapy treatments until the board finalises a case against her.
A spokeswoman for the board, Siobhan Catton, said the woman who complained had not made any complaints about Dr Richardson's words.
"She was upset about the treatment, and was disappointed that the doctor had not used a proven technique to treat the issue," she said 0b46394aab
