Idaho Medical Association files complaint against Dr. Ryan Cole

The Idaho Medical Association filed a complaint with the Idaho Board of Medicine against Dr. Ryan Cole, a local pathologist who owns Cole Diagnostics and this year was appointed to the lone physician seat on the board of Central District Health, the state’s largest regional public health agency.

According to the complaint, The Idaho Medical Association’s primary concern is that he says he has treated patients by refusing to use accepted and documented medical practices and vaccination and instead prescribing ivermectin.

The complain goes on to say they believe his practice is not in keeping with the Idaho community standard of care and does more harm than good.

Cole responded in an emailed statement to the Idaho Capital Sun, calling the association’s complaint “unprofessional” and saying it “sows distrust.”
