Find a Physician

The following list of physicians and licensed health care professionals is provided as a resource. Each physician is trained in autism treatments, parent recommended and vetted by Generation Rescue. 

What practioners’ degrees mean for autism treatment and for you:
M.D. (Doctor of Medicine):  An M.D. is the most prevalent primary healthcare provider.  An M.D.’s practice includes the diagnosis, treatment, correction, advisement, or prescription for any human disease, ailment, injury, infirmity, deformity, pain, or other condition, physical or mental.  
D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine):  A D.O. is a primary healthcare provider with the same scope of practice as M.D.s, including writing prescriptions and drawing blood.  D.O.s particularly approach a patient as a “whole” rather than focusing on one body part, focus on preventive care, and receive extra training in the musculoskeletal system, all of which are especially relevant for the treatment of autism.
D.C. (Doctor of Chiropractic):  A D.C. is primary healthcare provider concerned with all of the health needs of his or her patients, but concentrates mainly on the spine and nervous system.  A D.C. who treats autism also supports adjustment of diet and homeopathic treatment.  He or she cannot draw blood, but can typically refer a patient as needed.  D.C.s are also known as chiropractic doctors, chiropractors, or chiropractic physicians.
N.D. (Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine):  An accredited N.D. generally practices as primary care providers of naturopathic medicine.  These practitioners employ complementary and alternative medical therapies within the context of “mainstream” medicine, with the goal of helping the body’s ability to heal and maintain itself.  N.D.s prefer to use natural remedies, such as herbs and foods, rather than synthetic drugs, and also support autism treatment by emphasizing a holistic approach to patient care.
