    Any news on anyone going to Dr. Nancy Sawyer in Birmingham?

    Someone was going and then was going to report back.

    I saw Dr. Sawyer and she is FANTASTIC!! I have never felt more like someone cared so much about what was going on with my pain and that knew as much about it. She mentioned that she thinks that I may have Sjogren's Syndrome along with my Fibro, and is doing tests to see if I do. She is very knowledgeable about Dysautonomia, Mitral Valve, Fibro, CFS, and Sjogren's Syndrome. I would advise anyone that would like a caring, compassionate, knowledgeable doctor to make an appointment with this wonderful doctor.

    Best wishes to all.

    I was seeing Dr. Sawyer for a number of years for MVPS/Dysautonomia. Unfortunately she retired in July of 2011. If you are looking for someone to treat MVPS/Dysautonomia, the MVP/Dysaytonomia Clinic in the same building she was in is good BUT they do not accept new patients over the age of 54. My cardiologist doesn't want to treat the MVP/Dysautonomia and since I am over age 54, I am now trying to find a doctor that believes in MVP/dysautonomia, understands it and treats it.<BR>

    As for fibro, Dr. Sawyer treated me for that also. There was a doctor in the Rheumatologist office in the same building that specialized in fibro but when I called for an appointment she was no longer there. I did see Dr. Bell there for a while for the fibro and he did help it. Then Dr. Sawyer took over the treatment of the fibro as well.
