    Anyone looking for Portland doc. I was reading and messaging on the post for Portland Oregon docs. Someone said to call Dr. Webster on Lovejoy....I did and guess what....I got an appointment...FAST.... He has FM so I really think he will uderstand and be a great doc. I talked to Joy on the phone and she was so understanding of my situation and the fact that I have to drive so far. I bet I was on the phone with her for at least 15 min. and she was so kind. I will let everyone know how it goes. My appt. is in 2 weeks. No referral and my insurance is a preferred provider. Thank God for this message board and all the people on here!!!!!

    This is just a little info I foiund on dr. Webster. Thought you might like to read......

    Dr. Kim Webster Functional Medicine 2525 NW Lovejoy #408 Portland, OR 97210 503-973-5545 A reader writes: "Dr. Webster is willing to listen He prescribes Armour and Thyrolar, but specializes in "functional medicine" where he looks for the causes of autoimmune problem and addresses the problems with supplements and lifestyle changes. He is a great doctor! Give him a try." (Added 11/02)

    Another fan:
    "I just wanted to echo the previous endorsement for Kim Webster. He is incredibly knowledgeable, understands endocrine, neurotransmitter, and autoimmune issues extremely well, and takes a full hour in the first consultation to ask questions, examine your body, and get to the core issues affecting your health. After a single visit, I am feeling better than I have ever felt in my entire life!" (Added 1/06)

    A reader writes:
    "I agree with the other comments about Dr. Webster. He i= s very thorough and takes the time to listen. He figured out things that 3 other doctors in 3 years couldn't figure out in a 1 hour session. I feel SOOO= much better than I used to in just 1 visit. He knows the right question= s to ask and the right tests to do. I was tired of feeling like I was crazy and it is so nice to know that a doctor finally believes you and understands as he has thyroid issues as well. I had lost all hope of feeling well, but Dr. Webster has changed my life. My kids tell me I = am a whole new mom now. I have more energy to do things with my kids and husband than I have had in over 3 years." (Added

    Anyone in the area should really give him a call. He changed my life and I now live in Florida with my husband which I couldn't have done if Dr. Webster didn't help.

    Everyone should seek out the best treatment for their conditions. Hopefully each person can improve their health and maintain their jobs and lifestyles. However, if the path leads to disability, the SSA and insurance companies who decide your level of disability will look at the credentials of your practioner. I know many people find help through various types of therapies. Yet when it comes time to struggle with filing for disability, it's the specialists (Rheumatologists, orthopedists, immunologists, etc) who they accept. It's much more difficult if you are seeing a naturopath, osteopath, acupuncturist (please forgive my spelling!). Just a observation from someone who has been through the disability wringer. Good luck to everyone.
