The Rhinebeck Chronicles pt1

"'Look out the left'

-Joni Mitchell

My bags are packed and I'm ready to go. This is it. We're leaving today to take it to the next level.  Headed out to New York to see Dr. Bock, a well known DAN! doctor. I really do like our DAN doc here in town, but I'm ready to kick it up and notch and to see if there's anything we're missing. (if you're not in the autism world, DAN stands for Defeat Autism Now and the physicians who participate in this movement follow a biomedical protocol. Sometimes I call it voodoo)

I read his book Healing the New Childhood Epidemics about a year and a half ago (maybe longer) and I made this appointment back in June. It's taken this long to get in. I'm nervous, excited, scared, thrilled, and giddy.

Here we go. Stay tuned...

Good luck with your visit! We've seen a couple of doctors that follow the DAN! protocol and have gained some valuable insights from each one.
