June 28 – 1 PM – Lisa Corbin, MD, Director of the Center for Integrative Medicine, University of Colorado Hospital (http://www.uch.edu/conditions/integrative-medicine/index.aspx)

Subject: "CAM We Talk? Discussing Complementary and Alternative Medicine for CFS and FM"

Dr. Corbin was recommended by Dr. Lucinda Bateman, MD, of Salt Lake City, whose DVDs have been shown at past meetings. In response to our e-mail query, Dr. Corbin replied:

“Yes, I have agreed to be a resource for patients with CFS since Dr. Jones left … I have modeled my care for CFS patients based on his recommendations. … I haven't seen too many CFS patients that were patients of Dr. Jones, but we do have a few here and I would welcome more. I do see a lot of FM patients (and really enjoy working with this group) … I'm open to new patients with CFS or FM or other issues wanting CAM input. …I'm not doing primary care.”
