    Does anyone know of good dr., willing to listen, good staff,
    and excellent billing services?

    San Antonio has 1.7M people now! Yet I don't know one
    doctor to refer callers to, that actually believe in the
    viral and co-infections in patients with CFS.

    I was a SG leader here back in mid-90s; it was hard
    even then, but hopefully someone here knows of one
    willing to see patients with complex chronic illness.

    Thanks, all

    I believe that my husband and I will be moving there to irradicate my severe SAD from harsh Northern climates.

    What is a SG leader?

    I can contact my insurance company and get back to you on some names.

    Thanks,

    1. Group practice: Drs. Molina, Mosbacker, Roldon, Rosenberg phone:210-477-2626
    2. Dr. Emily Pineda: 210-615-9800
    3. Dr. Luis Suniga-Montes: 210-538-4000

    If these don't work, contact some local hospitals and ask for the referral line or service. Most don't participate with insurance.

    Thank you! I know the Molina, et al group well; have always referred
    FM patients to them. But CFS patients? Unless they have FM as well,
    they are not that knowledgeable about CFS, but research is moving
    along at a fast pace now, and they will know more and more soon, I
    am sure.

    The other two I have heard of and will make note of their names;
    one is in N.E. area of city, Molina in NW area, and not sure of the
    other, but S.A. is so easy to get around, even if traffic is heavy
    (well, except for construction areas), never takes more than 30
    min. to get anywhere.

    SG means Support Group leader. We had a very active and good
    SG here in 90's, with over 200 members, a quarterly newsletter
    and great national and international speakers. Alas, the leaders
    burned out and it is now defunct. There are over 30K FM patients
    alone, here; no one knows how many CFS.

    S. A. is great for SAD, but it is very hot here in summer! The
    humidity can get high from coastal winds, too. Areas just north
    and northwest, called the Hill Country (Canyon Lake, Fredricksberg,
    Helotes, Boerne, New Braunfels, are higher ground with lakes and very nice living conditions.) Winters are mild with one or two hard freezes;
    we had -6* wind chill factor a couple of times this year...lost some
    plants that can't take that kind of cold, but over all, I love it here.

    One caveat: we have Mountain Cedar here that causes some to
    have severe allergies, so bring your allergy meds! Lots of native
    live oak trees, crepe myrtle, red oaks. River rafting is rampant
    (did you know there are rivers all over S. Tx? Most think of it as
    cactus and dry barren land; it is not! We have droughts, but we
    also have a good aquifer that seems to keep us watered if we
    conserve even minimally.

    Come on down! Hope you find a good dr. to keep you feeling
    much better. Molina group I especially like for FM.

    Thanks for reply, and forgive long delay answering; very busy
    with family and advocacy efforts.
