    Has anyone on the board seen this doctor? I have read that he is one of the leading researchers.

    What is his treatment protocol? Has anyone gotten better after seeing him?

    Thanks,

    Gretchen

    Hi Gretchen,

    Dr. Natelson practices at UMDNJ in Newark. His private practice does not accept any insurance. However, he does have multiple research projects going on - so perhaps that is the way to become a patient of his, by participating in a research project, clinical trial.

    I am not sure, but I thought I read some where that you have to discontinue all other meds in order to participate. Right now that is not something I am willing to do. I certainly can not afford to pay out of pocket expences, even if my insurance would reimburse me a portion. So, I stay w/ in-network doc's.

    Although, I do wish he did participate w/ insurance plans. I would consider seeing him - I live in NJ. I will try to find his website &/or address and phone # for you.

    I too am interested in his treatment protocol.
