    good CFS/fibro doctor and family doctor recommendations. We are moving to Safford the end of June so the CFS/fibro doc could be anywhere between Safford, Tuscon and Phoenix.

    I am currently seeing a doc at an FFC. There is one in Las Vegas but that is just a bit far for me. All help will be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your replies!!!

    Hi Babs!

    I noticed that no one has responded yet to your post, and I didn't want you to feel like we were ignoring you, but I know that most of us, like myself, live closer to Phoenix/Glendale area and our Dr.s are not in the area that you are searching for.

    I am sorry that I can't help you with mine...maybe someone that lives closer to Safford will pop-up soon for you!

    Take care!

    thanks for thinking of me. Phoenix area is ok for a doc as I don't mind the drive. So, if you have a really good doc that you know of to treat CFS/fibro, I'd much appreciate it:)) Tuscon is good also!

    Hi Babs,

    I see Dr. Caldron for ME/FMS. I've referred others to him and some love him others have been frustrated by him. Interestingly, he's extremely compassionate, wise and supportive of me but frustrated my friend with Lupus because he questioned her diagnosis. Anyway, if you are ok with driving as you've mentioned you are, I would recommend him. I have family in the Wilcox, Safford, Bowie area but most of them drive to Tucson Medical or into Phoenix for their healthcare.

    Dr. Caldron is at 1500 S. Dobson Rd, Ste. 202
    Mesa, Az 85202 and his number is 480-834-5200.

    Hope this helps. Good luck. Janice

    He is interested in the whole person so he has provided pain management as well as suggested specific activity to combat deconditioning. He is very careful regarding post exertional fatigue concerns and supports my understanding of my body and my needs. We were going to try Lyrica but I've put that on hold for now. He is the doctor that runs regular blood test but he only does standard test not those targeted more towards ME. Even when he diagnosed me it was done through history, symptoms and exclusion. Honestly, my main doc is Dr. Fanto and he is my pain management doctor. I see him every month. Dr. Caldron I see about every 4-5 months. I've not found one doctor that can meet all my needs so a team works better for me. Best of luck in your search. Janice
