Hi Phil,

Your company supports the Scouting movement a lot in my area, really helps us to navigate our complex internet needs with a shoestring scout budget, and I just wanted to thank you for the commitment to non-profit entities and supporting the community

What is the most rewarding part of your job?

Hi Kevin,

I have an entirely non-political book related question.

What was the most enjoyable part of your autobiography that you got to include?

I’m a neuropsychologist who has practiced for decades and treated people who have had both ECT and TMS and honestly, you come off as extremely disingenuous in this entire thread.

The fact you opine on the safety of either of these at all is entirely inappropriate given your inexperience regardless.

The risks and benefits of these procedures are constantly monitored by all levels of governance of any facility which is providing it.

All patients who receive these treatments are monitored afterwards and are provided with the maximum support given the known, and agreed upon, risks.

Medical boards, hospital safety committees, government health departments, and mental health institutions all put millions of dollars into research and analysis of the outcomes for these procedures and would never allow them to continue if there was any concern that unknown legitimate adverse effects were occurring.

The concept that you would uncover some kind of gross negligence or coverup across the entire field, across the entire globe of this procedure, is absolutely absurd.

Nobody is pushing ECT to make a profit, it’s just the last goddamn resort for the people who we see who are literally begging to die and who we cannot do anything else for.

The fact that you seem determined to fear monger and drive people away from treatments that provably help them just so you can get 40% of a lawsuit payout is frankly, in my medical opinion, sickening.

I’m god damn glad I live in a civilized country where you would be declared a vexatious litigant.
