    I love Dr. Salvato.

    Her administrative staff is usually courteous to me, not perfect, but certainly no worse than any other medical office. Her Physician's Assitant, Carol, is wonderful - always nice.

    I don't think she pushes glutathione. She simply makes it available. I tried it and was unable to take it because of heart palps. Dr. Salvato was very nice and is helping with glutathione precursors and other supplement and treatment ideas. She has always believed me in regard to my med sensitivity - and she knows a heck of a lot about the immune system.

    I literally like to go to her office because I feel hope there. I honestly don't know of any other doctor in Texas who even is half interested in treating ME/CFS.

    A Dr. Salvato fan,

    are you nearer Austin, or Houston?

    No joy yet on finding a doc in Austin.

    I'm in Austin.

    Texas is woefully short on ME/CFS doctors.

    I called every clinic and doctor in Austin,
    and they blew me off - except for one D.O. who did do an extensive nutrition panel
    that was very helpful in finding supplements that I truly needed. (Just plugging in
    a specific omega-3 that comes only from flaxseed oil gave me greater cognitive function.)

    He really has not been able to help me much further than that. He does a lot of alternative
    things that seem iffy to me, but some people are willing to try them. His name is Robert
    Thoreson and he is very respectful and devotes his practice to FM and ME/CFS patients.
    I am grateful to him for the help he has given me. I understand that the docs that do try
    are wonderful just because they are willing to work with out illnesses. They have my unending gratitude.

    I just realize I said in my previous post that they're were "NO" doctors here, so I correct myself on that one.
