    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if those who have seen/ are seeing the "top m.e. docs" - what labs these doctors are currently using for testing viral loads?

    It seems like the "best" labs for testing keep changing?

    If you could list the doctor and the lab they use that would be great!

    thanks :)

    Stanford uses Focus Diagnostics for their herpes virus testing and ARUP for enterovirus testing.

    Dr. Chia I believe uses LabCorp for herpes virus testing (I only had HHV6 titer tested by him) and ARUP for enterovirus testing.
