    Soon I will be moving to Cape Cod and I am looking for a good primary care doctor.

    I don’t need someone who is a CFS specialist. I just need a doctor who ‘believes’ in CFS and who has some understanding of it.

    Does anyone know of a good doctor on Cape Cod MA?

    Interesting, why do you feel you do not need a CFS specialist?

    I've had CFS for 32 years and find I work best with a PCP who 'believes' in CFS and is open to treatment ideas form me that I get from following research.

    Most CFS specialists are very intrenched in their own idea of treatment, treatments that do not work for everyone. I've seen a few of those.

    Though I did see Dr Lerner a few years ago and he worked out a treatment plan for me that has helped me a lot. My current PCP is willing to follow this (Dr. Lerner is too far away to see regularly).

    But now I'm moving to Cape Cod and I don't know how to find a good, or even decent PCP.
