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.

Dr Shoemaker is wonderfull. If I had not found him I would probably be dead. I had lived in an apartment with mold and was getting sicker and sicker, once I went to him I got better. A girl that lived in the same apt buiding that I did later died because she didn't get the right help. Dr shoemaker is really a savior. Thanks Doc

Of the countless medical professionals I have encountered over the years, Dr. Shoemaker is without peer. His intellectual prowess, sincerity, investigative curiosity, open-mindedness and empathy make him uniquely superior. I live near Boston, yet take my family to his office 500 miles away.
