    Hi,

    Any suggestions on a Primary Care Provider near Raleigh, Durham, or Chapel Hill, NC? Would love to find someone who understands the effects of chronic disease (CFS/ME for more than 25 years) and can help with improving general health.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi @Azriel, we found Dr. Timothy Ashley and we were impressed.
    https://www.dukehealth.org/find-doctors-physicians/timothy-ashley-md-mph

    He was extremely thorough and thoughtful, and talked through the history (lots of past testing and regimens that have been tried). He didn't promise a miracle cure or dismiss CFS/ME at all. Instead he had suggestions on what might be helpful for day-to-day managing and living, which is what we were hoping for, and how to manage the other conditions that tend to get worse with long-term illnesses (as it's challenging to be active).

    Good luck and best wishes!

    We were having problems finding a primary care doctor and got a recommendation from the dermatologist.
