As fas as his qualifications are concerned, Hammesfahr is a board certified neurologist who had his troubles at one time in his home State over the billing of a patient. If you would put his c.v. next to a real Nobel Prize nominee, it would be worth absolutely nothing. He is not on the staff of any teaching hospital, nor does he appear to have any affiliation with a medical school. So, what in the world was this Congressman nominating him for in the first place back in 1999?

While a Florida Congressman did nominate Dr. Hammesfahr for a Nobel Prize, this isn't 'official' enough for his critics, and it will do nothing but turn them off to what he has to say.
But now I don't know whether I want Dr. Hammesfahr to be right or wrong. If he's right, then Terri knew that she was being dehydrated to death.

Notes on Wednesday nights' interview (1/7/04) with neurologist, William Hammesfahr, MD.
WILLIAM HAMMESFAHR, MD was interviewed Wednesday night on Highway2health.net by Ron Panzer, President of Hospice Patients Alliance.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr is board certified in neurology and pain management.He has spent many hours directly with Terri Schiavo and reviewed the medical records directly.Dr. Hammesfahr unequivocally stated that Terri is absolutely NOT in a persistent vegetative state and definitely responds to instructions from those around her, that she makes choices and shows decision-making ability in how she responds.
Dr. Hammesfahr stated that the medical record was in a state of shambles when it was given, that it was out of order by date and that much of the medical record was never given to the Schindlers or Dr. Hammesfahr!NEVER!Dr. Hammesfahr stated that there are notes in the medical record by nurses who were NOT working at the time they stated they were caring for Terri.
...
Also, Dr. Hammesfahr stated that parts of the medical record were completely missing!Dr. Hammesfahr explained that Terri's blood sugar level upon admission to the hospital was about 400 (373).When asked why it would be that high, since Terri was NOT and is not a diabetic, Dr. Hammesfahr confirmed that the emergency medical technicians who arrived by ambulance probably gave Terri D-5-W, a dextrose in water solution.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr confirmed that EMTs would check a patient's blood glucose level as part of their routine, when assessing a patient like Terri who had collapsed.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr and I agreed that we had never seen any nurse or physician bring a vial of insulin into a patient's room when administering insulin.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr explained that, although Michael Schiavo admits to "shaking Terri up" Terri's injuries and condition are not explainable due to anyone shaking her head ... that her clinical condition would have been different if that was the sole cause of her brain injury.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr stated that the type of injury and clinical condition Terri had at the time of her collapse could be explained by a possible strangulation attempt and/or an insulin injection combined with some form of attack or trauma.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr confirmed that no police investigation was done to look into Terri's condition, even after a bone scan (13 months after her collapse) revealed multiple TRAUMA and broken bones.Dr. Hammesfahr stated that the broken bones could NOT be explained by any form of bone disease, that these were ABSOLUTELY broken bones and that it must have been done through trauma, injury to her.Dr. Hammesfahr said that other physicians had also come to the same conclusion.Dr. Hammesfahr stated that Michael Schiavo kept these bone scans and other medical records secret for over a DECADE. [They were only released in 2002!]
...
Now back to Ron Panzer's 1-7-04 Interview of Dr. William Hammesfahr, World Reknowned Neurologist:
Dr. Hammesfahr revealed that in the early years, Terri had had a very small device surgically implanted into her brain to provide therapeutic very low dosages of electrical stimulation to the brain, which could help Terri, and which DID help Terri when it was first started.
...
In addition, Dr. Hammesfahr explained that the device (or any device) implanted, would normally be carefully monitored so that no infection would occur and no harm come to the patient.
...
Now back to Ron Panzer's 1-7-04 Interview of Dr. William Hammesfahr, World Reknowned Neurologist:
Dr. Hammesfahr revealed that Terri has at least 75% functional brain tissue and that the stories circulating in the media about a head full of fluid "only" are totally false.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr confirmed that Terri has been sedated at various periods of time and that the sedation of Terri would make Terri less responsive, especially during an examination by physicians who would try to see what her condition was.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr also revealed that Terri suffers from some hydrocephalus, or fluid buildup in the brain.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr confirmed that Michael has NOT allowed Terri to be treated for her hydrocephalus. [This is in violation of Florida guardian laws]
...
Dr. Hammesfahr, whose field is neurology, explained that an EEG (electro-encephalograph reading) test which did not show much brain activity was BOGUS! because it was done after Terri had been transported to a facility for the testing and Terri had been restless at the time, moving around quite a bit.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr explained that by "filtering out" the EEG activity Terri had due to the muscular movements, those filtering that brain activity out had also filtered out Terri's brain activity.
...
Now, back to Joe and Margaret Juneman's notes from Ron Panzer's Interview with Dr. Hammesfahr on 1-7-04:
Dr. Hammesfahr pointed out that Terri was also tested with balloons to see if she would follow the balloon with her eyes and head when instructed to do so.Dr. Hammesfahr pointed out that Terri did follow the balloons when instructed, and that she did so, even though turning her head far enough to the side caused her pain.He pointed out that reflex actions are usually to avoid pain, but in Terri's case she turned her head into painful positions in order to follow the instructions of the physician testing her.Dr. Hammesfahr confirmed that several experts in neurology agree that Terri could improve, can improve and that everything that should be done for her is NOT being done.
...
In fact, Dr. Hammesfahr confirmed that the isolation and deliberate removal of all stimulation from Terri is harming Terri, depriving her of the input and stimulation which would help her reach a higher cognitive level and ability.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr explained that Dr. Ronald Cranford (who testified for Michael Schiavo and George Felos' side - the right to die agenda) ... that Dr. Cranford was NOT a neurologist and was not an expert in the field.
...
Dr. Hammesfahr said no further scan is needed because Terri is functioning, which obviously shows brain activity.
...
