Dear Daffodil,
I tried to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bell and his secretary told me he is now retired and no longer taking CFS-ME patients. :(

(Comment sent to Co-Cure from a patient's mother: "My daughter, who has CFS, generally hates psychologists and therapists. However, on the recommendation of Dr. Natelson, she began seeing Dr. Friedberg over 2 years ago. We find him to be knowledgeable, compassionate, practical and flexible. When she is not able to meet with him in person, she makes use of the availability of phone consultations/sessions. He is quite wonderful. Our in-person consults with him take place in central Connecticut."
