    Hello, I was wondering if any one knows of or can recommend any Specialists in Washington state (or if not then closest to that area). I'd also be interested in being a part of a CFS/ME-related study or research trial, but I don't know where to go about finding such a thing, or if one exists. I'm moving to Seattle from Hawaii in August and am hoping to have better access to Dr's in the "mainland" (as we call it). Any suggestions would be super appreciated.

    -Ryan

    There is a thread here where someone lists a bunch of docs I that area.

    Look in the forum for doctor recommendations. Im in my phone and don't have the energy to do it right now.

    I would recommend listening to the webcast. There was a lot of info to disseminate.

    BTW, I would recommend most of these webcasts from Dr Nathan. He broadcasts live over the net on Fridays @ 2:00 PM Pacific Time, and previous webcasts are archived for download. You can either listen from the desktop/laptop via your browser, or download the Voice America app to your phone or pad and listen that way.

    The "someone" who originally posted this compilation was me and thanks @minkeygirl for relaying the information to @Ryan88. The original post is here:
    http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?threads/doctor-near-seattle-wa.20028/page-2#post-504253

    With Bastyr college in the vicinity, our area is full of naturopaths, and I believe I've located some that might interest you.

    My suggestion is to stay on the island! (kidding) As you saw from the list that minkeygirl posted, all that really are helpful here are naturopaths. I will eventually be flying to California to go to here: http://openmedicineinstitute.org/ to get treatment and hopefully be available for trials and research.

    Also, there is a group that is just local people, @ahimsa and @WillowJ are the group "owners", so I am tagging them here. Hopefully you will get an invitation from them soon. There are several threads in that group talking about Seattle doctors, although it is pretty quiet in that group so maybe tag people you want to talk to.

    Good luck with your move.

    @Ryan88, I sent you an invite for you to join the Pacific Northwest group.

    Folks don't post there very often (last post was Dec 2014) but if you post a question maybe you'll get some help.

    It will also be a good test to see whether group alerts are working. For a while I was not getting alerts from group postings even though I had no problem getting alerts on watched threads.

    Thanks for posting the Seattle docs list. I have been "himming & hahhing" on scheduling with someone in Seattle because I haven't had much luck before. I just scheduled a new patient appointment with Dr. Iller. If you or anyone you know has seen Dr. Iller, let me know what you think. I will do my best to keep ya'll updated.

    Dr. Iller is at the top of my list of naturopaths to consider, so I'm interested in hearing how it goes for you.

    @EMilo - It was just ok. I did not appreciate her attitude nor how she spoke to me so I only saw her 3 or 4 times. I decided it wasn't worth it to be treated like I was stupid for asking questions. I hope your experience with her is better.
