Pocomoke, MD (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker, leader in the field of biotoxin and mold related illnesses, and the developer of the Shoemaker Protocol, has added another physician to the nationwide network doctors specifically trained to treat Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS).
Dr. David Ou first took notice of Dr. Shoemaker’s research and methods in 2010 after realizing Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome from Lyme disease and water damaged buildings was indicated in a large number of his patients. He completed his certification in July, 2014. The Shoemaker Protocol is a step by step process using differential diagnosis and proven scientific fundamentals that has been shown to be effective for treatment of CIRS.
“Dr. Ou is an outstanding addition to the Shoemaker Protocol network. And his location in Atlanta helps provide people in the region who are seeking proper treatment a way to find help,” said Dr. Shoemaker. “I am often asked ‘Is there a doctor in my area who can help me?’, and this expansion of the network of certified physicians is making it easier to say that yes, there is.”
After graduating Cum Laude in Physics from Cornell University, Dr. Ou earned his M.D. from the University Of Miami School Of Medicine then completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine. He has been board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine since 1999.
Dr. Ou has studied with the Institute for Functional Medicine, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, the International Lyme and Affiliated Diseases Society, American College for Advancement in Medicine, and the Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine. Most of his patients are complex with multiple medical problems, and have seen many other physicians with limited success.
