    at the top of the page.
    Another source is "The Fibromyalgia Advocate". Type that into your search engine and it will bring you to Devan Starnyl's site on which she has a list of docs.

    I am in New York I am currently going to FFC in Norwalk, CT, but live 1 hour North of Albany. Where are you located? If money were not a consideration, and I wanted someone local, I would try either Dr. Kenneth Bock, or Dr. Steven Bock, or Dr. Michael Compain all at Rhinebeck Health Center in Rhinebeck, NY and their office,The Center for Progressive Medicine in Albany, NY. I have no personal experience with them, but they are doing a lot of cutting edge stuff.

    I currently use Dr. Andrew Garner in Glens Falls, NY for my Primary Care. He is very caring, open to try many things I have asked for. He does Chelation, Glutathion IVs. He is part of my BC/BS plan, PPO provider. I also see Dr. Campo at the FFC in Norwalk, CT.

    I've seen TONS of other Docs in the Tri-County area over the years and may have an opinion on someone in particular you may be considering.

    Another idea, contact your nearest Compounding Pharmacy and ask them to recommend someone doing innovative treatments. I find them brighter than most docs I've met.

    Please let us know where you are located, if travel or insurance acceptance is a consideration.

    Hi,

    I'm from Pittsford and I have a rheumatologist in the Rochester area---in the Henrietta/Brighton area that is excellent. His name is Dr. Chris Ritchlin, but I don't think he is taking new patients, but he is also in an office with several other Doctors. If you look up Dr. C Ritchlins office and called you would find the names of others in that office. Let me know if you need more information about it.

    My daughter lives in Canadaigua and I'm familiar with that area too, but don't know the names of a special doctors for fibro. There is a lady who works out of Monroe Community Hospital in Rochester that does alot with fibromaylgis patients. Her name is Barb Casia. I've been to her too and she also offers claases and information for people with fibro.

    Take care

    Sandy
