    I live in Tampa Bay, and I ran a support group in Clearwater for ten yrs. so I know a lot of the docs, but mostly on the Pinellas side of the bay. Tampa Bay is loaded with Rheumy's but if you have CFS it's not so good. I only know of one infectious disease specialist and the last time I asked, he was not taking new patients. I don't know any Rheumys who know much about CFS. I am not fond of any doctors, but some are better than others, and some are awful. The most important thing is to avoid the awful ones.
    Which illness do you have?

    Dr. Kenneth Galang spoke at one of our hospital presentations on FMS and he does know what he's doing and believes in giving patients what they need to treat their symptoms, including pain. I was very impressed with him. If I couldn't find good treatment here, I wouldn't mind driving to Tampa for treatment.

    Love, Mikie
