    Does anyone know of a CFS specialist in the Denver area? I was originally diagnosed by Dr. James Jones who left Denver a few years ago to join the CDC group. Then, cared for by another specialist, Dr. Gantz, who recently passed away. I'm now stuck, and need an MD for treatment and to support my SSDI case. One who also accepts Medicare would be ideal, but I'd appreciate any CFS specialist who is respected by SSA.

    There may be someone with a specific name but did you check the Doctor referral at the top right of this page?

    Yes, thanks. I did check the Co-Cure list and find only alternative practitioners, physician assistants or clinics that don't take insurance (and are also alternative). The last 2 doctors I had were involved in writing the CDC definition of CFS, and therefore, were recognized by SSA. I will probably not be so fortunate to find these qualifications in a new MD, but maybe someone out there has had a good experience with a receptive and helpful doc in the Denver area.
