In an article in the Times Online, the departure of Dr. Wakefield from Thoughtful House is confirmed, but also a statement is made:
It has also emerged that Arthur Krigsman, director of the gastroenterology clinic at Thoughtful House, has stepped down in recent weeks. The departure is not thought to be directly related to Dr Wakefield’s situation
Dr. Krigsman is still listed on the Thoughtful House website, where he is still listed as director of the gastroenterology clinic.
Dr. Krigsman is the director of the gastroenterology clinic at Thoughtful House Center for Children in Austin, Texas.
I am unclear on whether “stepping down” means he is still with Thoughtful House but not as director, or whether he has left Thoughtful House altogether.
Dr. Krigsman is the lead author on a paper which came out recently purporting to support Dr. Wakefield’s research.
