McDonagh Medical Center
We went to the McDonagh Medical Center on Monday. Dr. Rudolph was hesitant to do the interview. He was a hard interview to get. He was concerned we were out to put a negative spin on his clinic.
My goal for this series along with any story is to be honest. I think our viewers will see throughout the series everything must be questioned.
I can assure our viewers I asked tough questions and we did cover the criticisms of chelation...but we also discussed the good results Dr. Rudolph says he is seeing.
When we arrived in K.C., Dr. Rudolph gave a tour of his clinic. He showed us the many rooms and machines of alternative treatments. Then we did the interview.
Dr. Rudolph made it very clear to us he is not an autism expert nor are people with autism the majority of his patients. In fact, he has few. However, his clinic has a vast amount of published work. He claims, his clinic probably has the most published work in the world concerning the work they do.
I know we will get reaction from interviewing and showing alternative forms of treatment. However, we can't be above the news. People are using this form of medicine and it should be covered. I know people are very concerned about this being included in our series, but we are covering it fairly and honestly.
I can't wait to share this story with you.
