    Hello all,

    I've never been to an immunologist and I want to try one.

    I tried to see very top doc, Dr. Charlotte Cunningham-Rundles but she wouldn't see me because I have a diagnosis of CFS.

    Anyone know any other top immunologists in the NYC area?

    may i ask why that doctor won't see people with CFS?

    She required a referral from a doctor. I had Dr. Sue Levine write me a letter. I was grateful for that.

    When I called her assistant she said, "The doctor doesn't see patients that already have a diagnosis." And I probed further and she said that was just the doctor's policy.

    I perhaps could have written her a letter, but I didn't...

    wow. how odd.

    i guess when you're that big, you can turn people away for whatever reason you want!

    hope you find an immunologist. i have always wanted to get input from one myself but it doesn't seem like there are any here in canada who see patients.

    good luck
