FDA Warning Letter to Eastern Cranial Affiliates

Posted by mymaysa on December 17, 2010

Somebody in Central MA loves me, my Maysa, and a lot of other babies in the Metro DC area.  Whoever you are I love you too and THANK YOU!  

Yesterday, I received the best piece of mail of the season, maybe the best piece of mail in my entire life.  The letter was addressed to me with no return address, but a stamp on the envelope shows that it came from Central MA.  It looked suspicious so I opened it first.  The letter contained three sheets.  On the first one, a big:

NOTICE

RE: FDA WARNING LETTER – EASTERN CRANIAL AFFILIATES, LLC

I am thinking what now?  What is Joe Terpenning sending me this time?  So, I go on to the next two pages only to realize that this one is really not addressed to me but to Joe Terpenning himself.  It is available to the public on the web.  Here it is: http://www.fda.gov/ICECI/EnforcementActions/WarningLetters/ucm234347.htm.  If you’ve been following Maysa’s story and wondered even a tiny bit if any of what I wrote was ever a little bit too much, then you have got to read this letter.  The FDA actually paid his firm a visit and the warning letter that they issued as a result is a loaded three page document.  Needless to say that I knew nothing about it until yesterday.

I feel vindicated.  Happy Holidays!

    That’s great news Leila!!! You were right all along and hopefully this will prevent other kids from getting a defective cranial device.

    I wish I’d found your blog sooner! We’re in the middle of treatment with Eastern Cranial and have been dissatisfied, to say the least. I’m trying to figure out what to do.

    If you are dissatisfied with the treatment as I was, then you might want to go to another provider such that Cranial Tech in Annandale or Orthomerica in Columbia, MD. Those are two places I can trust. Good luck and please keep me posted.

    Thank you so much for sharing. Today I was notified that Cranial Technologies is not in my insurance network, but KidCap is. I was extremely upset b/c I was very impressed with Cranial Technologies, even though we have only had a consultaion. I made the decision to move forward with Cranial Technologies and pay for the DocBand out of pocket…b/c ultimately my child’s health is way more important than any amount of money!!!!!!
