    I can't see anything specifically about the XMRV test. Am I missing it?

    Well now I feel kind of stupid because when I try to check it further it says the URL is not working.

    I originally received this google alert:

    PubMed.gov is supposed to be reliable, yes?

    Man, for all of the uninformed out there this guy and those like him are just money pumps. That makes me want to bite someone! Him preferably.

    That's the impression I had. Do you know anything specifically about this guy, or just going on the fact he is making these claims about a XMRV test?

    George, that was certainly my impression. Grrrrr! Just another shuck trying to make a buck off us.

    I had a terrible experience with a DO a few years back who claimed he could cure my FM by forcing the limbs back and forth at the joint to push out the phosphates (Dr. St. Amand protocol) . He left me crippled and in a wheelchair for the next year and took all my money. I learned my lesson!

    Wait! This man is innocent!

    Alright, villagers, put away those torches and pitchforks..

    I called his office and found out that they merely draw blood at his office and send it out to VIP.

    Apart from that one bit of slightly unclear wording, his info on CFS really isn't bad at all... wish I had a doctor like that around here!

    I suggest that this thread be deleted before the poor man is unjustly guillotined. Moderators?

    Thanks, Doc. Maybe we could just edit our individual posts. I went through but didn't see anything in mine that was particularly bad.

    I think it's worth having a thread up for it if he is offering the testing.

    We don't want to hang the wrong doc. If moderators want to delete post fine by me.

    Thanks, Dr. Yes. I deleted my post because I had made unwarranted and unfair assumptions about this doctor. If anyone else wants to delete, it's a three-step process. First you click on "Edit Post" and then you click on the rectangle that says "Delete" and finally you click on the little round circle next to the words "Delete message." The little round circle is at the bottom left of the page.

    I wish you did, too.
