“In my more than quarter century of research and writing on science-related topics I have never found a better informed and more reliable expert on so many topics as Dr. Harriet Hall, aptly known as the SkepDoc. She is not only deeply knowledgable on a broad range of medically-related topics, she knows how to research those for which she is not already expert. Her thinking is clear, her writing elegant, and she is a humanitarian and humanist to the core. A national treasure.”

Michael Shermer, Publisher, Skeptic Magazine,
monthly columnist, Scientific American,
Presidential Fellow, Chapman University


“It has never failed. Every time my path crosses that of Dr. Harriet Hall, I’m encouraged, enlightened, and informed just a bit more, and my dedication to skepticism is stronger. I urge you to “drop in” on this remarkable lady and learn her opinions and her educated findings about all sorts of medical claims. But be prepared for possible surprises…”

James Randi, tireless investigator and demystifier of
paranormal and pseudoscientific claims, founder
of the James Randi Educational Foundation


“Dr. Harriet Hall is a treasure. She is one of our most knowledgeable critics of so-called alternative medicine. She has a gentle and congenial but clear and firm way of writing on the subject that appeals to all fair-minded readers. For the scientific viewpoint on all manner of iffy medical claims, I recommend Harriet as your source.”

Kendrick Frazier, Editor
Skeptical Inquirer


“Dr. Hall’s wit, attention to detail and relentless pursuit of the truth always make for a revealing read. And her dedication to spreading the good word about science-based medicine and taking down the imposters is boundless. Her brilliance, however, is her ability to cut through the nonsense and lay out the facts in plain English. We are truly fortunate to have her on our side.”

Stephen Barrett, MD, author, consumer advocate and
founder of the award-winning QuackWatch website


“Harriet applies a practical, no-nonsense brand of skepticism and critical thinking to all topics that she discusses, medicine-related or otherwise. In doing so, she communicates clearly and succinctly what constitutes good science and, just as importantly, explains why a given piece of nonsense is nonsense.”
