Dr. William (Bill) Gordon, III, Ph.D. is a clinical psychologist in private practice (individual psychotherapy of adolescents and adults, psychological diagnosis, and general and forensic consultation) and serves as Director of Psychological Services and Director of the Diagnostic Assessment Center at the Fairhill School & Diagnostic Assessment Center, a private day-school and diagnostic facility for learning differences students.

Allene Creacy became a national advocate for hyperbaric oxygen therapy as a result of a very personal experience on the day after her 32nd wedding anniversary in 1997.  On that day, her husband Bill collapsed on the job with a massive brain aneuysm. He was taken to a local hospital and lay there in the emergency room, comatose for almost 6 hours with little treatment, before we could get him a Care-Flight out to Dallas.  Even though he was given little chance for survival other than in a vegetative state, he had brain surgery and was in a deep coma for almost 6 months.  Three years post stroke, in August 2000, Bill had his first set of hyperbaric oxygen treatments. He literally woke up in the chamber after the 8th session. He became conversational. He stopped dragging his right foot and leg almost completely. He stood more erect. Many of his symptoms abated or disappeared.  Bill is still with his family. HBOT has given him almost two decades with his family that he would have otherwise been denied.  HBOT also gave Alleen a new purpose in life as she works to promote HBOT for traumatic brain injuries in the military and the other benefits of this therapy for both approved and off label uses.

Allene is the founder and President of the American Association for Hyperbaric Awareness.  She has served for over 15 years as the senior ranking member of the congressional Brain Injury Task Force in Washington, D.C.  Working with the Department of Defense, she sits on a 5 person steering committee currently assessing the global research on the use of HBOT for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  She routinely consults with state, federal, and military officials on the use of HBOT in the treatment of various injuries sustained by our military.
