I checked out his web site a little. I'm skeptical of an MD who doesn't take any kind of insurance and isn't on staff at any hospital.
His charges are pretty outrageous, in my opinion. You pay almost $1500 up front, before you ever get a treatment plan. Then it's $500 for each follow-up, and a required annual physical at $400. This doesn't include any labs, tests or "supplements." The fees for a visit are more than twice what my GI charges, plus the cost of the nutritionist. And you would still need to have a primary care physician and a GI in case you got really sick and needed to go to the hospital, have a scope, etc.
Yes, I have to suspect that he's way more interested in making pots of money for himself than he is in helping anyone.
