    I've been looking and I don't see any topic about Dr. Chia as a clinician. Has anyone here actually been to him for general CFS care?

    My impression has been that he is all about the enteroviruses and might not have a well-rounded clinical approach (i.e. looking at and treating various symptoms; knowing what to do about OI; which pain meds are best; giving good advice on other meds like immune modulators; etc.) But I really don't know for sure. Does anyone here have first hand experience with his treatment approach?

    In my ideal world, I'd go to see Nancy Klimas (and I might do that after all) but...she's in Miami and Dr. Chia is here in the LA area. So I thought I'd double check on Chia before writing him off.

    I see Dr. Chia. I like him. I do have Coxsackie B3 and B4 infections. Oxymatrine has helped me. Since you live in the area, I would certainly give him a try. Heck I travel from out of state to see him, so I must like him. :)

    Best, Timaca
