17 Doctors call for new tests for Terri Schiavo

New testing and therapeutic methods asked for by family, doctors agree

Clearwater, FL – Attorneys for Bob and Mary Schindler have filed 17 affidavits in support of their motion asking Judge Greer to allow medical evaluations be performed on Terri in light of recent advances in medical technologies.

The affidavits are from neurologists, physicians and other experts in the medical field. They are urging that Terri be retested based on the fact that new evaluation and therapeutic technologies can significantly impact brain damaged and disabled persons. Many of them have stated that there is a strong likelihood that Terri is in a minimally conscious state.

Dr. Ralph Ankenman, MD

Dr. Pamela Hyikn, SLP
