Sid Baker's Comments from ADHD Conference
At the November 4-7, 1999 conference, ADHD: Causes and Possible Solutions, sponsored by Georgetown University Medical Center and co-sponsored by the International Health Foundation, Sidney M. Baker, M.D., was one of the invited guest speakers. Here are comments Dr. Baker made in his presentation,
Im in private practice. Im a research consultant for Immuno Laboratories. Im a research consultant for the Childrens Development Data Base, which is interested in understanding the subgroups of autism and its related laboratory and clinical expressions."
Out on the end of the limb where I practice, the view is somewhat different from the academic roots that I came from. I like to discuss problems that come up when we begin to think a little bit differently, or at least can perhaps lead to help us think differently about illness."
One of my most important teachers in this regard was Linus Pauling, who simply said patients, before theyre given drugs, should be checked to see if they have the right molecules in the right amounts for the individual."
Another one of my teachers, Id like to acknowledge is Dr. Billy Crook. This man more or less defines a syndrome: The William G. Crook, M.D. Syndrome.
The clinical criteria are observance, with his eyes, ears, nose and his feel for things;
a sense of curiosity, freedom of guile and cynicism;
a friendliness, generous and prolific with his teaching, persistent, persuasive enough to go and do battle with his colleagues over these issues that hes been presenting to us and to them for years;
I think he has finally this weekend seen a triumph of his efforts. So thank you Billy.
Following these remarks the audience gave Dr. Crook a standing ovation.
