    Hi- I am new to this board and will be moving to Mesa at the end of the month. I am on Total Disability and have Healthnet Options Value insurance as my supplemental to Medicare. I have chiro and massage therapy benefits and a book full of names, but don't know where to start with finding my Drs.

    I need to find a deep tissue massage therapist in Mesa area- and thought if I found one- they could refer me to a chiro who refers to them. ( kind of backwards I know)

    I also need an internist and psychiatrist for depression
    I read of Drs in Phoneix but would like to stay in the Mesa area if possible.

    Please - those of you in Mesa, can you help me to find new care providers - I need to work with Healthnet directory too, ,for financial reasons.

    I see Bambi recommeded Dr James Martin DO- for CFIDS, but who do you go for for fibro?

    Did you check the button above called the doctor referral? A number of docs are listed but none take my insurance . . . might find someone there. I go to Dr. Scott Rigden, but his insurance coverage is limited and I pay cash when my son and I go for office visits. He is expensive.

    I have the fibromyalgia network referral list last updated 10/26/02, received it a year ago, (found it in a pile of unfiled papers), there are no Mesa physicians listed.

    Hopefully, someone will come up with a suggestion. -Karen

    Welcome to Arizona. I know of a wonderful massage therapist who is very gifted. I actually worked with his wife about a year ago. I don't have his number tonight but will look them up tomorrow and see he is still working. He used to make house calls even. Just a great guy with a great understanding of fibro. I will get back with more information tomorrow.
