1. The hardest thing for me to imagine about him is that

 

he's a distant cousin of President Obama. He hates President Obama while at same time, delightfully appreciated that Obama called his cousin a good man.

then it is a HIPAA voilation and he should lose his license and be prosecuted to the full letter of the law.

54. As a physician, I'd like to think so - BUT ...

Unless there is some way to identify the patient, it's probably NOT a HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act) violation.

That said, one of the x-rays he posted DID include coding information about the patient, which could possibly lead to him/her being identified.
http://cjonline.com/news/state/2014-02-22/beauty-different-things-excerpts-wolfs-comments

But I'm sure he will face some kind of disciplinary action, because even if it's not a HIPAA violation, his comments are clearly unethical.

the fact that seeing the horrors he sees on a daily basis has probably hardened him to the violence, blood and gore - there is no excuse for this. Guy needs to take a break and get some help. He certainly DOES NOT need to run for an public office because he obviously has lost all objectivity.

33. This man has some serious issues and I'm glad this has come to light.

In a separate Facebook comment, Wolf wrote that an X-ray of a man decapitated by gunfire resembled a wounded alien in a “Terminator” film and that the image offered evidence people “find beauty in different things.”


This was one of his more "telling" comments. This and the one about wanting to buy a gun that can blow someone's head off.

45. On the one hand, I completely agree with the overall sentiment

I dont know how privacy law relates post death or with autopsie xrays, but its freakish and the guy clearly has some issues that should make him ineligible for practicing medicine, and definitely ought to throw an immediate stop to anyone wanting to vote for him, outside of maybe a few death fetish types.

But I have a hard time taking the article seriously after reading your excerpt. There were no aliens in terminator. That's a pretty basic mistake to make.

I also dont feel a great need to jump in the middle of R on R violence. My first thought when they said candidate from Kansas was "I wonder if he's running against that senator that doesnt even have a home in his state". Turns out, yup. Let them batter each other, and maybe Kansas will look through the veil and decide neither of them is a good choice for their state.

46. I could give a shit whether there were aliens in Terminator or not

the point of his statement that sickens me is the "people find beauty in different things"...like watching someone's head getting blown to bits could possibly...in any way...be considered "beautiful".

The man is sick and the fact that this is coming to light just might help some voters to decide to switch parties rather than put someone like this in a government role.

Interestingly enough, he also said earlier that his posting of the images served to "demonstrate evil lurking in the world".

I'd say he demonstrated that quite clearly....just not quite the way he intended.

32. Seriously though this is a huge HIPAA violation.

I work in the medical field and we are constantly reminded and mindful of HIPAA rules and regulations. If anyone else did this, they would be fired immediately. Are doctors/administrators not required to follow rules and regulations? This idiot's license needed to be revoked on the spot, and if the facility that he provides services for doesn't get on this, they could also face all kinds of backlash.

I worked in IT for a number of public schools for years and we were bound by basically the same kind of privacy regulations. Agreed 100%, he's definitely putting a lot of people at legal risk and they should get on that.

37. can the medical people on this board tell me whether it is even likely that he actually trained

at all the places listed in this bio:

(ladies, note that he practices mammography-=-PLEASE do not go anywhere near him!!)



Milton was born and raised in Lyons, a small farming community in central Kansas.

He graduated from the University of Kansas and attended the University of Kansas School of Medicine. There Milton became one of the top medical students in the nation. As only a third year medical student, he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. Dr. Wolf completed his residency in diagnostic radiology at the University of Missouri at Kansas City which included training at Saint Luke’s Hospital, Truman Medical Center and Children’s Mercy Hospital. Dr. Wolf also trained at the Veteran Affairs Medical Center and the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

Dr. Wolf currently serves Kansas families by practicing diagnostic radiology including mammography in Kansas City. He has also traveled Kansas and cared for families in Hays, Pratt, Ellsworth, Great Bend, Hutchinson and McPherson.

Dr. Wolf became an outspoken critic of ObamaCare from the very beginning. His book First Do No Harm: The President’s Cousin Explains Why His Hippocratic Oath Requires Him to Oppose ObamaCare exposed the horrors of the president’s health-care overhaul and provided common sense free-market health-care reforms that put patients first rather than politicians. He has traveled the country speaking out and has appeared on news shows including Fox and Friends and Hannity. Until recently, he wrote a conservative column for the national newspaper The Washington Times.

Milton is a doctor, not a politician. He has never run for political office. He rejects the idea of career politicians and shares our Founding Fathers’ vision of a citizen legislature where Americans bring their experiences, serve for a short time and then return home to live under the laws they helped to create. Milton believes America must re-embrace the Constitution and the divinely-inspired American Idea of individual liberty, limited government and free-market values.
