    Hi,

    The Cleveland Clinic is in the dark ages when it comes to CFS or FM - the new research finding on XMRV came from their research dept and has had zero affect on the doctors views of CFS/FM. They believe it is depression - they don't treat the pain or the fatigue - you can visit a million times, and I have, and they don't have ANY ideas on how to help - its very very poor care. The docs have no intellectual curiousity - they seem bored and are repetitive. It is no different then all the other large medical institutions - they use CFS/FM as a feeding pool for their psychiatrists.

    Search this board under Cleveland Clinic - you'll see many with the same opinion.

    I hope some day they will care enough to provide good care - have suggestions and effective options for patients suffering.

    God Bless,

    Elisabeth

    I haven't been to the Cleveland Clinic, and don't plan to, but you said something very interesting to me in your post -- "The docs have no intellectual curiosity..." That is a very telling comment, and it wasn't until I read it that I realized you've put your finger on a problem that I've experienced over and over again with various physicians. Very succinctly put.

    THANKS FOR THE INFO I HAVE HEARD ABOUT POOR TREATMENT THERE BY SEVERAL PEOPLE. MY UNCLE HAD TO UNDERGO SURGERY THERE YEARS AGO ADN HE SAID THE STAFF WAS VERY RUDE. SO THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP.

    I have never been to the Cleveland Clinic, but I did go to one in Columbus OH which was supposed to be good, and this is one of the largest cities close to me with all of the supposedly "highly trained specialists!"

    I was not impressed with the doctor that I got at all. He did less for me that my family physician, who is an Internal Medicine doc does.
