looking in or close to Aiken, South Carolina
Looking for a decent Rheumotologist and PCP. My PCP got his degree in the 50s and insists tylenol should help my problems... thanks buddy. My rheumotologist says my PCP should call out my pain medications and "it's not his responsibility". My fibromyalgia has been killer since the 100 degree weather hit here in Arizona and my doctors won't help. Does anyone know of a doctor, rheumotologist or pain management doctor who actually believes how much pain I'm in? I am currently seeing Dr. Nolan on North 15th avenue, but his answers are blunt and he knows all about treating me without even hearing my symptoms. Thank you.
I am looking for a good PCP in the Richmond, VA area. Everyone I have had has been a dud. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
I did find a wonderful pain specialist here:

I've had good results with:
Susan Levine, M.D. (immunologist who specializes in M.E., FM, Lyme and allergies)
115 East 72nd St.
New York, NY
Derek Enlander, M.D. (GP who specializes in M.E. and FM)
860 Fifth Ave.
New York, New York, 10021
My wonderful neuro retired, but my new one is quite good as well ... all of my docs take insurance!
Anne Remmes, M.D. (neuro - great for head pain, sleep, etc.)
76th between Fifth Ave. and Madison
New York, New York
I had some other fantastic specialists for M.E., FM, etc., but they've since retired or gone into research...Dr. Jay Goldstein in L.A. was one of them...great doctor and human being!!
Hope the above information helps a bit...

I see a good doctor in Tampa, Dr. Elizabeth Zable on Dale Mabry. She has helped me alot with the physical symtoms of Fibro but as I stated in a previous post I am having alot of difficulty with emotionally coping with all the symptoms, knowing that i will forever have this pain. I am depressed, easily stressed and anxious, in pain and tired all the time. I just want to be as I was before this DD! Dr. Zable will listen but she relys on prescribing meds. or increasing/decreasing drugs you are already on. I need help with the coping part, the depression. Any docs in the Brandon/Plant City area of Florida that can help me???
Does anyone know of a good Doctor in Rochester, New York.?
Anthony Tay and he does take insurance
Although I have RA and not FM, I have a friend with FM who is treated by
Dr. David McLain 205-991-8996 Very popular and busy.
2229 Cahaba Valley Drive, Birmingham, AL 35242
The Rheumatology practice I go to is Rheumatology Associates 205-933-0320
2145 Highland Ave S, Suite 200, birmingham, AL 35205
They have 4 doctors there, mine is Dr. Traylor who is organized and thorough.
I was very very lucky in finding my doc on the first try. I believe he himself has FM too because he mentioned something about HIS trigger points.
He sits and listens to how I am feeling, what is working, and what isn't. Together we come up with a plan on what to try next.
I told him straight out that I really didn't want narcodics like before (with my old docs.) I wanted to try medicines that are for Fibro....He gave me something to help me sleep, Cymbalta in the strongest dose available to be prescribed, and Lyrica. He also gives me trigger point injections every month.
If I told him tomorrow this stuff isn't working, he would have no problem helping me come up with another plan.
He is the cutest and sweetest guy you could ever meet. He also has pictures of his new twin babies in all of his exam rooms.
Here is his info-and he takes insurance!
Dr. Michael Hardee

I live near Walnut Creek, Ca, and use Kaiser but they don't really help me. I'm looking for a good doc for fibromyalgia, and I guess I'll have to pay.
I have a wonderful Chiropractor. Dr. Brandon Holmes in Concord, Ca.
I also need a good massage therapist to work on my knots and trigger points.
Can anyone help me? I think listing doctors is a great idea!
Hi. I am writing out of concern for my 72 year old mother who has basically been bedridden with pain for the past six years, and who has recently discovered that she has CFS/FM.
The pain seems to be extremely dibillatating to the extent that she can hardly even walk.
She is in immediate need of a RM (rheumatologist) here in Montreal, Canada. So, new to this forum, I was wondering if anyone might have some info that can help out. She does have an appoitment finally with a FM, but it is only at the end of September, and she caould really use some serious pain managmenet right now.
Looking forward to any ideas. Thank You Kindly.

I have two doctors that I've seen (one has moved practices), but they are both very aggressive and willing to try new things. They are both very good physicians and willing to help and work things out. They both take insurance or self-pay. One is nonprofit and one is for profit.

I am looking for an internist/rheumatologist for my 24-year old daughter who has been suffering from CFS/fibro for the past 7 years.
I also have CFS/Fibro and see a wonderful internist who believes in CFS/Fibro because his brother suffers from it. He has been excellent in discussing treatment options and providing non-narcotic pain meds( tramadol). I highly recommend him, though my daughter doesn't want to go to the same doctor I do and would prefer to see a rheumatologist.
My internist's name is :
Dr. Michael Sutkamp
Norton Community Medical Assosicates-- Dupont
3991 Dupont Circle Suite 205
Thanks for your help.
