doctors in chicago?


Senior Member
I have a friend who I believe may very well have ME. He lives in Chicago. He is currently seeing a functional doctor who is ok but is one of those people who thinks CFS is a wastebasket diagnosis and he needs to meditate and rest in order to heal it. I want him to see a doctor who understands true ME/CFS and can test him for mitochondrial disorders.
