Hello everyone, I'm new to this site. I was diagnosed with CFIDS a bit over 2 years ago. I was ill for about 7 or 8 months. I got better, but I have other medical conditions which arose/flared. After my last 2 long illnesses, I have been having a CFIDS flare for most of this year. My PCP is stumped. He thought that my new allergist may offer help as they are immunologists, but he was not able to help. The allergist only deals with the immune system in relation to my severe environmental allergies. I was excited to read here about Dr. Kaufman a couple of weeks back as I live in Northern California. I called the OMI a few days before June 1st and was told that Dr. Kaufman moved 2 doors down. I was given the new number. I called and the receptionist said that due to the move, the new schedule wasn't accessible. She took my name and number and said she'd call me as soon as she was able to schedule. She said that she was scheduling out new patient appointments in July/August. I didn't hear from her and called back about 2x in the following week, she took my name and number each time. No call back. I finally called back after waiting a few more days, on this past Friday. The phone rang and rang many times then was picked up by what sounds like a personal cell phone generic message - "The caller isn't able to answer your call right now. Please leave a message." or something similar. I called twice more over the next couple of hours and same thing. No call back. Called OMI to verify the number and it was correct. I asked if Dr. Kaufman was still a part of OMI and was told he was not. I asked about another doctor that also treated CFIDS/ME, I forget her last name but it starts with a Ch and she too left OMI and they both moved 2 doors down. I'm getting desperate as I am basically housebound and in bed most of the time. Has anyone here been in contact with Dr. Kaufman's new office as of June 1? Does anyone have any contact info they can share? Insight? Is there another doctor anyone can recommend at OMI if I can't see Dr. K? Thank you for reading through all of this if you have.
