Government Actions against DAN! Doctors


Government Actions against DAN! Doctors

Stephen Barrett, M.D.

Defeat Autism Now! (DAN!) was a project of the Autism Research Institute (ARI) that began in 1995 and ended in 2010.

From about 2001 through 2011, ARI’s Web site published a Clinical Registry that listed the names of doctors who had attended DAN! conferences.

In July 2002, ARI asked all who were listed to sign a statement of support and to indicate which of 33 types of treatment they offered.

Searching the licensing board sites and elsewhere, I have found that at least 69 of the medical and osteopathic physicians listed in online DAN! registries between 2001 and 2011 have been subjected to regulatory actions.

I also found two chiropractors, one of whom also has a naturopathic license. Here they are, categorized according what I believe to be most significant concern.

A red asterisk indicates that the doctor’s license was either revoked, surrendered, or permanently suspended in at least one state. Click the links to access details of each case.
