Teacozy, no one is telling you to make him be your child's pediatrician.
There are plenty of other pediatricians for you to choose from. Your choice. Go for it. Be glad that you have a choice. Not everyone does. Be happy you have a doctor you respect and who respects you.
I chose this one. I was happy with him. He paid for his mistakes, dearly, which is more than I can say about most medical doctors in this country, especially MDs who deny vaccine damage or fire parents from their practice.
Well of course he can't be my child's pediatrician, he's passed away...
How did he pay for his mistakes in Eliza's case? He doesn't even acknowledge that HIV causes AIDS and has said "Because I've never seen her sick or with anything resembling what she supposedly died of ... I don't believe I could have done anything to change this outcome." That doesn't sound like a person apologizing, acknowledging or paying for his mistakes at all.
Dr. Jay Gordon at least said "Dr. Jay Gordon, a Santa Monica pediatrician who had treated Eliza Jane since she was a year old, said he should have demanded she be tested for the human immunodeficiency virus, HIV, when, 11 days before she died, Maggiore brought her in with an apparent ear infection.
"It's possible that the whole situation could have been changed if one of the doctors involved — one of the three doctors involved — had intervened," said Gordon, who acknowledges that HIV causes AIDS. "Do I think I'm blameless in this? No, I'm not blameless."
That's at least better than Dr. Fleiss's statements.
Further, why did you post this here and not the I'm Not Vaccinating forum if all you were looking for are responses stating what an amazing doctor he was?
I agree with some of his philosophies, but I could never personally consider a medical professional who denies that HIV causes AIDS in this day and age a "good" doctor.
