    Hello all. I went to my first appointment today with my new doctor. He is definately a gift from God. He knew all about FM/CFIDS. Spent close to an hour with me and treated me like a person. He was ever so kind and respectful of me and what I go through daily. He stated that, "There are doctors out there that can't except that the unknown happens everyday, these just happen to be 2 of those that have happened." He did not one time try to make me feel crazy or mention counseling. He said that this was as real as it gets for those that suffer from this. I have never had such a wonderful experience with a doctor since being diagnosed with both illnesses. This one is a keeper, a definate keeper. Anyone looking for a doctor in Phoenix? I know of a great one!

    Isn't it like a miracle to find a doctor that is humane? Wish I was in Poenix, never know where we may end up so it is always good to know where the help is out there. Good Luck! Jyn

    Welcome to the "People With Good Docs Club." It always makes me sooooo happy when one of our members finds a good doc or PA (that's for you, Madwolf).

    It gives us all hope that there are good docs out there if we are persistant enough to find them. If any of the hospitals have public meetings about CFS/FMS, it is well worth a shot to go and listen to the speakers. That's how I found my new doc. Support groups are another way to find out who is good in the area.

    Again, I'm soooo happy for you.

    Love, Mikie

    My new Doctor is Dr. David Minor, DO
    I don't know what kind of info we are permitted to give on the board so if you e-mail me, I will give you his info. My e-mail address is: Search N4
    Thank you all for sharing in my happiness. I am still in complete shock that this man treated me with such respect. He is truly a wonderful Doctor.

    Wonderful for you! I never tire of hearing about a good doc in this gray area (FM/CFS).

    Good luck!

    Hooray!! I'm so thrilled to hear of another great doctor. It took me 3 years and more than 6 doctors, but I finally found one who is both knowledgeable with CFS/FM and easy to talk with. It makes such a difference when the doctor gives legitimacy to our problems.

    Best of luck to you. I wish it wasn't so hard for everyone to find a doctor with compassion and understanding.

    you but it is always returned; says there is a fatal error in the address. Am I the only one having this problem?
    (I am fairly new to computers but haven't had this problem before--I tried it twice. The returned address, but not the one I send, has different caps and and period before and after the N4. Help!?) Beckster

    Try: Maybe the spaces are giving you a hard time, but my mail comes through both ways. Let me know if you have a problem this way.
