    I'd love to hear any experiences with Dr. Pellegrino.

    I have FM & CFS and am currently seeing Dr. Lerner for an
    EBV infection but I also think I may have a problem with yeast. From reading articles here by Dr. Pellegrino I know that he believes in treating yeast among other things, so I just made an appt to see him.

    He sounds like a very caring, compassionate and knowledgeable doc.

    hi kristina,

    i don't know if you are in the area but dr. leo galland in NYC also tests and treats for yeast. he is a gut expert.

    Unfortunately I just mapquested him and he's 11 hours away, lol. Thanks anyway.

    How do you think Dr. Lerner would react if I got treatment for yeast and then asked to go back on the Vatrex while still taking Diflucan?

    I hope that he would be OK with it, even though I don't think that he would prescibe an antifungal. I really want to get back on Valtrex and don't want him to be upset with me...
