New Patient & Research Participant Application

The Bateman Horne Center (BHC) serves individuals seeking diagnosis and treatment, as well as conducts research related to ME/CFS and FM.  One of the few integrative centers that fuses clinical care and research, BHC is committed to improving the quality of life for patients with these poorly understood illnesses.

Our center is extremely busy and in high demand. Regrettably, due to limited resources, we are unable to see many seeking diagnosis and treatment. We are making concerted efforts to expand our services and improve the handling of our applicant pool.  Current fundraising campaigns seek to expand our clinic staff in order to double our capacity to see patients.  


In addition to our medical services, we provide a range of informative, educational, and supportive offerings for individuals who have been diagnosed with or suspect they have ME/CFS or Fibromyalgia. You can find these described in our List of Supplemental Services and by further exploring our website.


The volume of calls to BHC prevents the receptionist from providing New Patient Information to callers.  
Anyone calling for information will be rerouted to this web page.

Our providers focus on the diagnosis and treatment of ME/CFS and FM. We are not a primary care or pain management clinic.
