I have a 5 year old autistic son and am trying to get some feedback on DAN Doctors from moms in San Antonio, and surrounding areas . I have found this website very useful , because there is no better source that to ask mom's that are going through the same walk of life .I am trying to find a practitioner that really takes the issues of each autistic child to heart , and that only runs test that are absolutely necessary to help that individual child. Please share your experiences with me .

Thank you

Hi, my son is under the autism spectrum and under the alternative biomed interventions but out in Austin, several of us prefer it this way as here in SA we really do not have a good medical physician who are into the DAN protocol.
Dr. Melissa Kempf use to but believe is no longer seeing patients who have autism. My son use to be seen by her but I preferred going to Austin instead.

Here in SA, I could recommend -

Dr. Carmen N. Arroyo-Otero, MD – Alamo City Center for Autism

155 E Sonterra B

Blvd, Suit###-###-####

DAN! Practitioner

Abby Kurth, MP

H, MS - The Center for Complementary Medicine 7300 Blanco Rd, Suite 503, San Antonio, TX 78216

###-###-#### DAN! Practitioner

Services include clinical nutrition, homeopathy, vitamin and mineral supplements, essential fatty acids, and special diets including gluten free, casein free, yeast-free, allergen-free.

Wanted to add some of the YouTube segment with Julie Matthews who has a wealth of information.
