Doctor ‘Sneak-a-Snake’ Gets Slap on the Degreed Tushy for Stalking
In a case that raised eyebrows even within the Twilight Zone of medicine, a Monterey California MD is being allowed to keep her medical license, in spite of her bizarre-world stalking of her estranged doctor-husband. And perhaps the only aspect of this case stranger than the doctors freak-show behavior, is the jaw-dropping decision by the California Medical Board that she still be considered “a physician in good standing”.
Doctor Mary Kay Brewster, you see, was sentenced last January in Monterey County Court by Judge Mark Hood, to 5 months of “house confinement” and 3 years felony probation.
She was convicted of Felony Vandalism, Felony Stalking and Trespassing. Prosecutor Steven Somers told the court that when the Brewsters’ marriage fell apart, the doctor started a pattern of stalking and harassing her husband and his new girlfriend. Among other teenage shenanigans, she would routinely text profane messages to him, and call his phone over and over throughout the night. A woman scorned, you know.
Brewster, a 58-year-old gynecologist, is well regarded at Monterey Peninsula Community Hospital, even after her slinky surprise. Patients and staff can be curiously supportive in the face of other people’s reptilian behavior. As long as it isn’t directed at, you know, them.
The criminal investigation revealed that the doctor physically assaulted her ex; poisoned his plants and vandalized the new girlfriend’s car, a nurse at Community Hospital.
It did not help her case when police found her diary detailing her obsession. A search warrant revealed the writings, with entry after entry showing her preoccupation and hatred of her stalking victims.
Brewster’s revenge culminated when she bought a four-foot-long python and a bagful of live rats at a nearby pet store. She then broke into her ex-husband’s home while he was away and released the rats and snake in his bedroom. She even left some food for the rats. It was the new girlfriend who stumbled upon the surprises. They say her screams were apparently heard a block away.
Now, will this out-of-control wing nut be allowed to continue treating patients in the state of California?
Of course she will. Just 2 weeks ago she sat in a medical board hearing and was advised she will not have her medical license revoked. The California State Medical Board is run by – and you may need to hold your ponies here – other doctors. And if you think a group of physicians is going to pull the license of another doctor over vandalism, assault, harassment, breaking & entering, sneaking a large snake into a bedroom, and just all-around garbage-level behavior of trailer trash on steroids – you don’t know much about American medicine’s lab coat conspiracy.
