BOARD AWARE OF ISSUE:

Complaint 8/15/2006   

QUOTES FROM DISCIPLINARY ACTION DOCUMENTS:

--"The Board determined that the physician's conduct constituted a substantial likelihood of a risk of serious harm to the public health, safety and welfare based on the physician's experimental treatment of autistic children with Lupron."

--"With regard to administering Lupron to autistic children, the Respondent has been quoted as saying ‘If you want to call it a nasty name, call it chemical castration.  If you want to call it something nice, say you are lowering testosterone'."

--"The complainant alleged the Respondent promotes the use of Lupron as a treatment for autism in children.  The complainant alleged that the Respondent…practices outside the scope of his expertise and the prevailing standard care for autism…experimented on children without a rational scientific theory or the supervision of a qualified review board."

--"The Respondent endangers autistic children and exploits their parents by administering to the children a treatment protocol that has a known substantial risk of serious harm and which is neither consistent with evidence-based medicine nor generally accepted in the relevant scientific community."
