Read what Dr. De Meirleir's patients are saying.
I credit Dr. De Meirleir for helping me to get my life back. I was so unwell for more than two decades, at times unable to work or even walk very far. During that time I consulted with many health care providers, none of whom could help me, beyond issuing vague diagnoses without treatment plans. Trained as a scientist I started reading the literature and following Dr. De Meirleir’s work. When I realized that in addition to being a scientist, he is also a clinician, I immediately arranged to consult with him. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made. He diagnosed me correctly, put together a treatment plan, and helped me to improve substantially. I noticed that he tailors each patient’s plan to their particular needs. His knowledge is vast and deep, and so is his experience in treating his patients. I shall be ever grateful.
