Who is Dr Dan Stock?

He begins by describing himself as a “functional family medicine physician,” which per him “means [he] is specially trained in immunology and inflammation regulation.” In the video, he says he has treated 15 Covid patients. 

While the video has no comments, it is a hit on Twitter. "Dr Dan Stock pointing out the glaring holes in the completely illogical ways we are handling a “pandemic”" one user wrote, applauding him. Another user wrote, "MIC DROP alert! WOW. Dr. Dan Stock, MD speaks at a school board meeting...and straight up tells them to go against all CDC recommendations and that he will give a pro bono testimony to any court in their defense!!!! We could defeat this if more docs speak out like this!! "



 



 

One said, "On Friday, August 7th Dr. Dan Stock addressed the Mt. Vernon School Board in Indiana over the futility of mask mandates and Microbe protocols in most schools. his speech had an impact. The school board "tabled" their plans and will "contemplate" what Dr. Stock said."



 

 

However, many others are not wasting any time in calling him out. "Some dude named Dan Stock just floated a boat that all anti vaxxers are sharing like gospel. He's not a specialist. He's not a scientist. He's a family practitioner with a hand into dermatology. I'd rather listen to Dr. Pimplepopper #danstock" one wrote. 



 

Another wrote, "@TheISMA How does one file a concern about a doctor? Dr Dan Stock, MD is seen in this clip at a school board meeting in southern IN giving inaccurate information and misconstruing data on COVID-19 and the vaccine."
