    Just got a call that Dr. Lapp is shutting down as of 1/31/2018. Been going there over 20 years. I need a CFS/ME doctor that will similarly see me once or twice a year and fill out disability paperwork.

    Looking in Western Va/Bristol area or Roanoke Va, or Greenville SC or Raleigh NC.

    I'm sure there's going to be lots of people in the same boat as I.

    Yes he is retiring. They are cancelling appointments made out into the future. Doesn't look like Dr. Black is an option at the moment.

    I'm so fuzzy on how to find a local doctor who will do my SSD paperwork now. This was a non-worry area of my life and now it is unsettling to have to start a doctor patient relationship all over again when there are so many CFS doubters out there.

    I have (or had) an appt with Dr. Black in March. Haven't heard a thing from the office. Will be calling Monday.

    Will be needing a new doc if she's not going to be practicing anymore.Could be anywhere within 300 miles of Roanoke.
