Kollab should have her medical license permanently revoked, not because of her Jew-hating tweets, but because she seems to celebrate the idea of committing malicious medical malpractice.

April 23, 2013,: “Annoying to go to school in a city full of Jews because everywhere I go I hear about the wonderful israel. About to tell this guy to stfu.”

Dr. Lara Kollab, whose anti-Semitic tweets cost her a residency at Cleveland Clinic in 2018, has requested a hearing before the State Medical Board of Ohio through a Columbus lawyer.
Kollab is facing potential discipline before the State Medical Board of Ohio following a June 19 investigatory deposition in which she admitted to having authored a series of anti-Semitic tweets beginning in 2011 and ending in 2013.
The tweets were revealed by Canary Mission, which tracks and publicizes anti-Semitic rhetoric on social media.
“This is a very unfortunate set of circumstances,” said Columbus lawyer James M. McGovern, who confirmed his firm is representing Kollab. “And the doctor is doing everything she can to make things right for the people that she has upset or harmed through her comments.”….
On July 10, Dr. Kim Rothermel, secretary of the medical board, sent a certified letter to Kollab’s home in Westlake and to both McGovern and Cleveland lawyer Ziad Tayeh….
“On or about October 7, 2013, your initial application fee was submitted to Touro Osteopathic Medical School (Touro), which you described in your February 2019 sworn statement as ‘a school deeply rooted in Jewish tradition.’” Rothermel’s letter stated. “At your June 2019 deposition, you admitted that after being accepted (to) Touro, you deleted the anti-Semitic tweets from your Twitter feed. You also acknowledged that if Touro had known of your anti-Semitic tweets they probably would not have admitted you as an osteopathic medical student.”
The letter states Kollab told Kerns Medical Center in Bakersfield, Calif., she left her Cleveland Clinic residency because of a death in the family.
“You did not disclose that, in fact, you had resigned in lieu of termination due to your discriminatory social media posting,” Rothermel wrote. “On or about December 27, 2018, you sent the following reply message to @canarymission and @WeAreTouro in which you falsely claimed that Canary Mission used a fake account in an effort to frame you. When questioned about this message at our June 2019 deposition, you admitted that the content of your December 27, 2018 message was false and that you knew it was false at the time you authored and posted/tweeted the message….”
