    Tania's Notes from the first Good Doctor page:

    Dr Mark Donohoe (what state is he in?) http://web.me.com/doctormark/DoctorMark/Welcome.html Donohoes CFS page is at http://homepage.mac.com/doctormark/Medical/CFS.html

    throwing the following from the Aussie thread here to be put up later (need food!!!) so i can find the info easy again.

    Found a Dr here on the Gold Coast David Patterson.....now a naturopath after 35 yrs of doing drug type medicine. He has been doing the Methylation protocol....no Medicare but only $50 a visit......dont have to see him, as he does Ph consults and writes you a very big report with results of Metametrix US tests, emails them to you.......not out for money in any way. I was going great guns with him till I took a drug and stuffed my liver. My friend is just fantastic. Another is just out of bed after yrs. Does the b12 thing plus its co factors. When I went he said why did it take me so long to find him. He has cancer but still treating while doing his own therapy.....chemo. Paradise Pt 07 55 775690 He makes his own compounds up....my friend was deficient in 33 nutrietnts, but me about 7. The urine test alone telld him most of what he wants to know, but I did all 3 and am glad. Everyone who goes is impressed with him ...... has been treating Autism/ CFS for 15 yrs....knows all about the gut too.

    Seeing heapsreal linked this to something he posted, I guess we should update this.

    Wow, only 4 years ago and half of those are gone. Ive lost so many specialists since then!!

    Dr John Graham no longer practises. Retired (he had stroke)
    Dr Ian Buttfield no longer practices. Retired as a dr (I think he's thou working with the hospitals on MCS eduction)
    Dr Kerry Callagham no longer practices. (Died if my memory serves me right)

    Dr Richard Burnet no longer in Adelaide and is out bush.. Pt Augusta or Whyalla way last I heard (for all I know, he may be retired now too).

    Dr Allen Gale, he's an allergist who has some ME/CFS patients so good for anyone to see who has food related issues. He's still practicing but for how much longer who knows, he's really aging and wasnt in a good way when I saw him last recently.
    ...........
    New ones to go on that list

    There is an older doctor ME/CFS doctor at the Queen Elizabeth hospital currently heading a research study). He's thou a rhematologist. Dr Richard Kwitek? (sorry cant remember last name but something like that). He's originally from one of the other Aussie states so more up with things then other of the other doctors I'd previously seen but he's main speciality I think may be FM. No idea if he's consulting while he's heading up the ME/CFS research study?

    Dr David Mitchell at Waterful Gully wasnt on the original list. He's great for finding new things from tests but has a tough attitude and is expensive but I do recommend him for testing. (He also specialises in MTHFR if you have that mutation).

    We do have a very nice lyme specialist in SA who may be suitable for ME/CFS patients, Dr Belinda Coyte.
