It’s official, Dr. Krigsman to leave Thoughtful House

20 Feb

Thoughtful House, the clinic and research center founded by Dr. Andrew Wakefield, is losing both Dr. Wakefield and, now, Gastroenterologist Dr. Arthur Krigsman.

From a Yahoo group (as posted by Mike Stanton in the comments on LeftBrainRightBrain):

Re: Dr. Krigsman

Dr. Krigsman’s decision to relocate his clinical practice to a facility outside Thought House reflects his belief that the complexities inherent in a referral-based practice can be best addressed by his working independently. We will continue to refer patients for GI evaluations when appropriate, and we look forward to continuing to work with Dr. Krigsman on research projects. We are grateful to Dr. Krigsman for his dedication to Thoughtful House and for the work he does on behalf of the children we serve.

Just to be clear, this is official.

    Yeah, I’m sure that’s the reason.

    Interesting..Could it be an issue with ‘self referrals’?

    This looks to me like an effort to avoid a lawsuit. If they put him outside, then it will me much tougher to sue them for performing unnecessary medical procedures on autistic children.

    I’m sure it’s a legal/PR move and I love the “GI evaluations WHEN APPROPRIATE”. The one he did on my son certainly doesn’t fall into that category. But as long Jepson et al are still pushing chelation (no pun intended) and prescribing Valtrex, Thoughtful House is still Thoughtless House.

    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress
    because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be awesome if you could point me
    in the direction of a good platform.
