Scientology's Dr. Conrad Maulfair:
Advisor to a Hate Group
Conrad G. Maulfair, Jr., is a doctor of osteopathic medicine.
Maulfair and his wife Coleen are also long-time members of the Church
of Scientology, and Commissioners of
the Citizens Commission on Human
Rights, an anti-psychiatry hate group controlled by the
church. CCHR publishes a collection of lurid pamphlets
attacking the mental health professions, denying the existence of
mental illness, and opposing the use of psychotropic medications. The
images surrounding Dr. Maulfair at left are taken from the covers of
some of these pamphlets.
- Maulfair "diagnosed" Jeremy Perkins by having a hair sample
analyzed. (See the Quackwatch.org page on commercial hair analysis for
background on the hair analysis scam.) After meeting with the family,
he recommended that Jeremy be treated with what the Buffalo News
called "an expensive intravenous therapy" to remove arsenic and toxic
metals from his system. Most likely this was the chelation
therapy advertised on Maulfair's web site, hardly an appropriate
remedy for schizophrenia. See the Quackwatch report on chelation therapy for a
- After the CBS
48 Hours Show discussed Dr. Mauflair's role in the Perkins
tragedy, he published this attack on CBS
- Did Elli Perkins receive
the CCHR pamphlet on schizophrenia shown at right? And did this and
CCHR's other hate literature reinforce her decision not to permit
Jeremy to receive psychiatric help?
Psychiatry's For Profit 'Disease'
Maulfair links to
CCHR.org from his own web site.
- The Maulfair Medical
Center is located in Topton, a small town in eastern Pennsylvania
between Allentown and Reading. The center is a member
of WISE, the World Institute of
Scientology Enteprises. It advertises a detoxification
program based on L. Ron Hubbard's book of quackery, Clear
Body, Clear Mind.
- Dr. Maulfair is also listed in the practitioner database of Defeat Autism Now!, a quack autism "cure" group.
- Maulfair has a cookie-cutter I am a
Scientologist page. Has has been taking Scientology courses
since at least 1993, and probably much longer.
- In 2004 the Maulfairs were sued by Jason and Jeanine Grammes,
owners of Cafe del Giardino, a
restaurant located in the Maulfair Medical Center building. The ugly story of a lease dispute was
posted on the web. Apparently the Maulfairs have lots of critics.
- Conrad Maulfair III (the doctor's son?) was arrested in September 2004 for
possession of 10 pounds of marijuana he harvested himself.
