Speaker and Personal Medical Consultant, Founder - Doug Says LLC
Representing: Patients, Caregivers, and Patient Advocates
Term ends August 2022
Doug Lindsay became ill at age 21 and spent the next 11 years home- and bedbound until he figured out what was wrong, developed novel treatments to keep his rare autonomic-adrenal condition at bay, and eventually developed the innovative surgery used to treat him.
During Lindsay’s 14-year medical odyssey, he worked with 35 senior faculty at 28 institutions, developed new uses for five existing prescription drugs, won a national first court case protecting patients’ rights, and developed the concept for the two successful, innovative adrenal surgeries used to treat his case.
Now, Lindsay is a nationally recognized speaker on the role of hope and character in innovation and in life. He is a Community Advisory Board member for Washington University’s Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences and Institute for Public Health.
He also provides an in-depth personal medical consultant service to a small number of rare disease and complex condition patients who’ve found themselves trapped in the medical system.
