    I just remembered I heard about a doc in Houston. If I can't remember I need to contact a friend. I'll get back to you. (I don't know if he's CFS but he does interesting stuff).

    Another thing you can do, which is how I found my current doc is Google. I used all sorts of options, CFS in (my city) naturopath, integrative, functional medicine.

    Then I found her website and saw that she did methylation so I emailed her. She totally gets it.

    Here's the doc I mentioned above.

    In Austin, Dr. Kendal Stewart at the NeuroSensory Center. He's helped me tremendously with CFS and fibro.

    How do I get in to see Dr. Patricia Salvato!! I can't even seem to get Maria the new patient coordinator to call me back! If she's as good as I hear, even if her staff is not responsive to our needs, I don't care I can't take this back and forth feeling of I'm fine I don't need any hlep with this to OMG, I've just been run over by a truck. Next week my wife gets knee surgery. If I don't hear back from a doctor that knows something about ME/CFS by the following week, I am going to Dr. Salvato's practice and camp out there in the waiting room until they see me.

    Recieved a call from Dr. Salvato's office this week. Wait time for first appointment: 6 weeks. I'm happy with that. Actually waited longer than that between a referal and the refusal to be seen by the neuromuscular dept at Baylor. At least I am now more organized with my health history. Thinking of starting a symptom journal with an app called Track & Share. Haven't been too good at keeping up with such stuff. Is there a thread here centered around the process by which a PWCFS can keep on-going track of symptoms and relate with correlating activity/diet/treatments? Has there been mentioned any recommended methods or tools for such? Later this weekend I may try to find where to repost this question to get more responses.

    Just an update here. The appointment I spoke of was supposed to be two weeks ago. I had to cancel it to go away to a funeral for a family member in upstate NY. Sitting in those cramped seats for the hours it takes to fly up there and back was torture. The doctors office returned my call last week to reschedule. Now I'm in a nine week holding pattern!! They would not consider that I had already waited 7 weeks from the first scheduling and my reason for the postponing.

    Will do; you too. Wow! Supply and demand I guess. And no wonder these specialists are no longer taking insurance (as I saw noted in another of your posts). Probably able to see more patients after cutting out the clutter and hastle.

    Sorry for the delay. I've been having a harder and harder time all along - spending a greater amount of time trying to get even a fraction of the work that needs to get done at home to keep up with the basics. And at work? Things are not going well there at all.
    Anyway, yes, I did finally get in to see Dr. Salvato. I am so far convinced it was the right choice being that she exhibits a very appealing combination of expertise and demeanor and I get along with her supporting staff pretty good too. I've learned a lot about the tests and stuff, but nowhere near compared to the majority of members on this forum. In order to keep this short and on the topic of this thread, I will close by saying that I am not sure, however if this is the doctor for me just because after four appointments, I continue to be getting worse. If I soon get the energy and motivation, I will explain in a more appropriate thread.
