I miss Dr. King so much. He was Jacy's doctor from the time he was 5 til he was 10 and there has never been anyone else like him. I wish he had been here a couple years ago so I could have brought my son to him for the most difficult situations I have ever had and I thought it was bad when he was younger I had no clue. Miss you Bryan lots. Crystal and Jacy McAlpin

Five years ago, our then 6 year old son experienced a horrifying and acute developmental regression. While other specialists (about 40 in total) were mystified by the disorder and offered little in answers, hope or treatment, Dr. King was open-minded and willing to examine our son's situation holistically. After detoxing him from previously prescribed meds that were not helping, he tried a med that he had been researching and led a team of specialists to address all of our son's needs, including education, speech, behavioral, and ocupational therapy. I'm happy to report that five years and countless hours of work later, our son is on a remarkable path to recovery and a fulfilling life. Before we came to Dr. King we were almost out of options and hope for our son, Dr. King's compassion and innovation to try something different literally saved our son.
