Dr. Nancy Klimas' new ME/CFS Clinic near Miami . . . a place of welcome surprises

Comfortable, electrically controlled massage recliners in a doctor's reception area?

Such patient comfort measures are only the first of several striking features that indicate that this is no ordinary doctor's office. There is nothing ordinary about this medical facility any more than there is anything ordinary about the doctor who has created it . . . or the patients it serves.

This is the new CFS Clinic in Kendall, Florida created by the world renown ME/CFS expert, Dr. Nancy Klimas.

The patients, of course, are those of us who have ME/CFS and are used to being ignored or marginalized by all too many physicians. We who are used to being sent from "pillar to post" or, more accurately, from specialist to specialist in search an opinion or treatment for one of our many symptoms .. . usually to no avail.

At her new CFS Clinic, however, Dr Klimas has created something different . . . something we're not used to . . . consideration and respect for our condition, comprehensive examination and testing as well as personal consultation with Dr. Klimas and treatment by her personally selected doctors and staff . . . all in one facility.

islandfinn: I am getting cranky in my fatigue. Really - this post is good news. I think Dr Klimas is better than sliced bread - and hot. (I'm also becoming adolescent in my fatigue and bestowing crushes as my highest form of compliment.) She's contributed so much to the field and I'm thrilled she's opened a clinic. But in reading that patients are treated well, my mind snarkily chimes in - for $3500 (I think that's the initial fee) they better be! And what I know of the work done by Dan Moricoli is all positive. But the article seems to be a sales-pitch for hiis organization. I'm not sure why that bothers me, but it does. And then I checked the link to his site and saw a page that looks enticing, featuring ""XMRV, CFS/ME and You", Dr. Nancy Klimas in a 12 part video series produced by the ME-CFSCommunity." But now you have to join to see what's on the site. I'm pretty sure it used to be open access and joining was an independent choice.

Okay - enough snarking. Rant is over and I am focussed on the good again.
