The mistreatment of Alex continues. He’s in agony and receives NO treatment! The hospital postures, but there’s no neurologist, no gastroenterologist, and no autism specialist trying to help. He’s not even getting any tests. The autism community needs to respond. Will your child be next?

Update: It’s over. Alex’s mother had no choice. She signed to avoid losing contact with her son. So the doctors will have their way – to drug Alex into oblivion. As if they actually care about him. They’ve made their point clear: Question their authority and you lose your child … and your child loses you.
This medical system created Alex and millions more. They’ve profited from their iatrogenics mightily, but when it comes down to it, all they really want to do is make sure that no one is even able to whimper after they’ve raked in their profits.
Will your child be next?

The members of AIM and Alex’s mother now fear for Alex’s life as the result of medical negligence at Loyola University Medical Center. If this was a typically developing child tests of every sort would be run to determine what is wrong. Alex is holding his stomach and his head, IN PAIN. Where is neurology? Where are the gastroenterologists? WHERE ARE THE “AUTISM SPECIALISTS”?
Where are the qualified medical physicians who CARE SO MUCH?! Day 22 for Alex Spourdalakis. His mother, Dorothy, has repeatedly shown good faith in the system she is trusting to help her son. She continues to follow the dictates of Loyola physicians. She has asked for a list of doctors and residents taking care of Alex and it has not been provided for her. PLEASE CONTACT YOUR FAVORED RADIO SHOWS AND NEWS PROGRAMS AND LET THEM KNOW THIS CANNOT CONTINUE. YOU CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN THIS CHILD’S LIFE
