    It's the fibro and fatigue clinic, part of a national network of clinics dedicated to treating people with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.
    There are plenty of posts that talk about them....

    Hi, I live in New Hudson. I have a great Dr.

    She is in Novi. If you would like her number just let me know.

    She also takes Medicare/Medicaide.

    good luck, Kim

    Seems like they were having a difficult time getting started in the Detroit Metro area - one doctor backed out on them and then they lost their facilities.

    A lady in my support group said that her doctor was approached to work for them and then yet another one said that hers was working two days a week...she felt it was cheaper to see him at his regular office rather than pay the HIGH prices of the clinic.

    They were giving monthly seminars on FMS - also call the 800 number for detailed info about the treatment protocol and the fee range. The also have a medical finance company who will give you a loan to pay for your treatment.

    Personal I'm not impressed....didn't mean to seem negative but I get discouraged with those who make a buck by taking advantage.....but you be the judge-give a call, go hear the seminar, etc....

    Thanks for the offer. I live in Chicago and I'm just about to start consulting with a new guy here.. Dr. Morris Pappernak @ Rush..

    He comes highly recommended, so I'm gonna give him a shot first.


    Thanks

    I haven't been yet. But I think when I finally rustle up the $ to go, I'll go to one in Cleveland, just cause there are RAVE reviews about that one. I do know that one in troy has free information seminar to let you know what they're about...I think its every 3rd thursday of the month. I'd post their phone # for you, but I don't think we can. You can find it on fibroandfatigue website. Good luck!

    after five years of traditional doctors the FFC docs are ones who have given me a life back.

    that is not called taken advantage of.
    it is called being healed and being helped.

    my opinion..cyndy
