Dr. Shoemaker is an excellent physician and researcher. A mold patient's failure to successfully get away from ongoing mold exposure is a common reason for not responding well to Dr. Shoemaker's protocol. Naysayers should check the patient's ability to TRULY avoid ongoing mold exposures before commenting on any medical protocol and before judging a physician behind the protocol. Patients who are able to TRULY avoid ongoing mold exposure have responded well to Dr. Shoemaker's protocol. Mold patients typically suffer memory and other neurological challenges (mold being a neurotoxin!) so even if they do successfully avoid ongoing mold exposure, there is still the question of how well the mold patient can remember to adhere to the protocol with consistency, accuracy, and reliability. Many mold patients have to repeatedly move from one place to the next in search of a clean and safe dwelling, are tied up in legal battles relating to the toxic mold being caused by builder code violations and/or builder fraud, and are stressed out on a level they've never experienced before, so these factors must be taken into consideration when evaluating the success of any protocol or the merits of the physician behind the protocol. A medical protocol is only as good as the patient's ability to follow that protocol.

They were very qualified and knowledgeable. I could tell that they've been doing their job well for quite a while.

I don't know of anywhere else that would've taken better care of me. I had a great experience. I love that I can count on them to work with me until they find a solution for my situation. Other places I've visited, seem to give up after they don't have an answer for me the first time, but not here. I was worried that they were going to wear an obnoxious cologne, because I've dealt with that at other places, but they didn't even wear cologne. It was fantastic to be able to breathe freely the entire time. They never left me for an extended period of time and I never felt ignored. It was nice to hear how much the staff respected them. It made me that much more confident that I was under the care of a professional.
