Other physicians I have talked to who have seen some of his patients
claim his cure rate is much lower than stated.
Having talked to a few of his patients, he does appear to prescribe a
few things that won't agree with everyone, so at least some patients
would reasonably be expected to have trouble.
He is also a no-insurance doc and quite expensive.
Everyone I know who got a lot better found that a judicioius
combination of insurance plan docs, "alternative" cash only docs, and
nice buddy doc's who would Rx and order tests because they asked
nicely to be what it took. Nobody I know of got well by depending on
a single doc to do most of the work.
