Looking for a good CFS doc in NYC/NJ


My 18 year old was diagnosed with CFS a few months ago. We are trying a few things through our local doctor, but I wanted to get a more expert opinion from a doc that sees CFS patients as their focus. It's not that I don't believe the diagnosis. I definitely do. But, I would like to hear from more of an expert on what more we can try vs. things we should avoid. There are so many treatment potential options, and I am looking to wade through them to determine what might be more applicable for our particular case.

I have heard of Dr. Benjamin Natelson and am considering going to see him. Has anyone done so, and does anyone have any experience to share?

Alternately, are there any other docs in NYC or NJ that might be suitable? My 18 year old's chief symptoms are being very fatigued, getting unrefreshed sleep and brain fog.

Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.

I don't have personal knowledge of any CFS doctors in your area, but there are doctor finder engines. You select your state and city from a dropdown list and it gives you the doctors in that area. That's how I found my CFS specialist. I found 4 or 5 in my area, so I called around. It was an easy choice from there...

Good luck.
