    I'm looking for a good CFS/FM doctor in Anchorage, Alaska. Anyone know of a good one - preferrably one who is on Blue Cross/Blue Shield preferred provider list?

    I clicked on the button at the top of th epage that says Doctor Referral and youo have several to choose from in Anchorage. I hope one will take you BC/BS. I had to go out of network for my doc, but my insurance still pays 70% after the deductible.

    Thank you. Anchorage is one of the warmest parts of the country right now! Actually, I travel a lot with my job and I'm currently in Michigan. It's about 20 degrees colder here than at home. That is unusual though; normally we would have a lot of snow and it would be quite cold this time of year.
