    Please any and all references appreciated. I also desperately need a good primary physician as well,that is intelligent,knowledgeable,social skills,and a competent staff a must. What does anyone think of the Holtorf Medical Group,a FFC here in Ca? Any physician anyone would recommend there?

    Thank you in advance!!!!!!

    One more thing. There is a Los Angeles Support Group called Living with CFIDS. They are in process of creating a doctor list. They can send you the first draft.
