What Is The Difference Between A MAP Doctor And DAN Doctor?

What Is The Difference Between A MAP Doctor And DAN Doctor?

I want to start the biomedical treatment for my son and can you please give me recommendations to a good doctor in San Francisco. Also, what is the difference between DAN doctor and MAP doctor...I take it they both specialize in biomedical treatment?

No difference. However, the term "DAN!" has been discontinued because the Divers Alert Network owns the copyright and didn’t want to be confused with the association.

Dr. Sanford Newmark is an integrative neurodevelopmental pediatrician at the UCSF Osher Center and follows much of the DAN protocol. He also is a network provider for many insurance companies, unlike the other biomed doctors in the Bay Area. However, he does not recommend nor peform some of the more controversial treatments like chelation. If you want somebody who is less conservative than Dr. Newmark, look into Dr. David Traver in Foster City, Dr. Lynne Mielke in Pleasanton, Dr. Elisa Song in Belmont, or Dr. Raj Patel in Los Altos.
