Medical Negligence Within Endocrinology - Are YOU a Victim?

This paper, by Eric Pritchard M.Sc. (published 24 Jun2 2013) proves that doctors who are denying the active hormone T3 to patients who need it - are practising outside of their scope. This is not only medical negligence, it is criminal negligence.
