    Hi, Everyone.

    I'm in great need of a good (supportive or some knowledge of ME/CFS) Primary Care Physician or NP in San Diego. I'm Medicare/MediCal.

    I've been searching high and low, in every way I can think of, to little avail for years. (I'd have more options if I had cash. Isn't that usually the case.)

    In the past, I've been to CHWB here, some swear by them, others not. I've run into too many errors there and other. Dr. Moss has also been recommended. He's a good doctor. Problem is you have to pay up front and get reimbursed for the Medicare part. He doesn't take MediCal. (I could only afford to see him twice over the years. I can't anymore) I don't think he sees patients as a PCP, anyways.

    I hope someone knows of a good Primary Care Doctor or NP that they can share with me. Please post, or PM me if you like.

    Thank you. :hug:

    Is there anyone that you can see through Scripps? I wish I knew of a specific person but don't know SD well enough. I've had the same problem and searched for a PCP in the LA for years to no avail. My mom finally found someone that I am seeing in April and I can't even remember how she found him. Keeping my fingers crossed for you too!

    @Gingergrrl, thank you for the Scripps suggestion and crossing your fingers for me too!:) I'll check into Scripps again. By chance, is there a reason you thought there might be a good doctor there? Sorry you've been searching for a PCP for years, too. It seems to be the case for most of us. I'm glad your mom was able to find someone for you to see next month. I hope hit the jackpot.

    Hi Jennifer, The only reason I mentioned Scripps is b/c I traveled there for a consult with a cardio last year. It was a one-time consult and overall was not that helpful but he was a nice person and the Scripps system seemed pretty comprehensive with tons of doctors and locations. It is three hours south of me so not realistic for me but if it is close to you, I thought they might have more variety of PCP's to choose from (but I could be wrong.)

    I see my new PCP the first week of April and am very grateful my mom found him and made the appt b/c if he is good, am hoping he can help me to coordinate some treatments that I will need. Thank you for your good wishes in this and hoping you find someone soon, too.
