An alternative medicine clinic specializing in autism, Care Clinics of Austin Texas was recently raided by the FBI and the IRS and appears to be shut down.
According to the Quackwatch website In another action, Care Clinics and Doctor’s Data are being sued:
CARE Clinics, of Austin Texas, its owner Kazuko Curtin, its subsidiaries, and Chicago-based Doctor’s Data have been sued for fraud, negligence, and conspiracy
The complaint is being brought by an adult, apparently not autistic, who claims to have been misdiagnosed for heavy metal poisoning. In a step that could have a big impact on the autism alternative-medicine community, the petitioner is charging that the method of testing for heavy metals, specifically that used by Doctors Data, is fraudulent.
It’s worth repeating: it is hard to underestimate the impact of a successful suit against challenge testing to “diagnose” mercury poisoning.
