    Hi all,

    Does anyone have a good and understanding Primary Care Doctor in the Atlanta area who takes good insurance?

    Thanks very much.

    Hi wrthster,

    I too am looking for a doctor in Atlanta. I don't need a CFS doctor - I just need an internist who will not glare at me every time I mention CFS. I have gone through 2 of them now - they just would not respond to anything I said if the words Chronic Fatigue Syndrome were in the sentence. The last one left the practice and the office manager asked me who I wanted to see to replace him. I asked her to poll the doctors in the practice and if she could find one who "believed" in CFS I would see that one. She polled 4 doctors - not one would acknowledge CFS as a "real" illness. I walked out.

    Sorry for the rant. The other day someone posted this doctors name. (sorry- I did not record the poster's name) I am going to call her when I am on my feet again.

    "Delmazo Medical in Emory Hospital on Peachtree Street. I've been going to Butler for over a year. She takes FM/CFS very seriously and treats you for it. They definitely bill insurance. They are all Rheumatologists there but I see Butler."

    Sorry I can't help you with a Primary.

    Good luck!

    Hi Wrthster,

    I am the poster who said Butler with Del Mazo Medical at Emory Hospital. She is an internist/rhuematology. She has taken my illness very seriously. (I'm glad the other poster took down her name too!!)

    I haven't found any other doctors in Atlanta that I can refer you too... I met a bunch that were less than professional.

    I hope you find someone who will help. Dr. Butler is very good.
