Tom Moorcroft, DO
My name is Dr. Tom Moorcroft, as a global leader in solving complex medical mysteries, I’m what you might call a medical detective. My goal is to find out what’s really keeping someone sick and help them get better. This involves combining the very best medical science available with my extensive experience in both the field, in the hospital, and in my office as well as my passion for supporting health and healing with simple, everyday (and often natural) approaches so you are as resilient and healthy as possible.
I have been treating patients with chronic bacterial and viral infections as well as mycotoxin illness for over a decade. Many of my patients are children with infection-induced autoimmune encephalitis.
The field of medicine is ever changing and I do my very best to keep up with the latest research. I’m a member of the ILADS Evidence-based Lyme and Co-Infections Fundamentals program working group and we review the evidence and update this program annually. I also train other healthcare providers; teaching is an amazing way to make sure you really have a grasp on the medical literature because if you don’t your students will call you on it.
