New Patient & Research Information
The Bateman Horne Center (BHC) serves individuals seeking diagnosis and treatment, as well as conducts research related to ME/CFS and FM. As 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.
Dr. Lucinda Bateman is nationally recognized as one of the most knowledgeable clinical experts in ME/CFS. Along with our staff of providers, she specializes in the comprehensive and compassionate diagnosis and treatment of those with ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia. She often creates free tools and resources to help those battling ME/CFS and FM that she is unable to treat personally; they are housed HERE.
Suzanne D. Vernon, PhD, Research Liaison for the Bateman Horne Center, has dedicated much of her life to harnessing the scientific know-how and cutting edge technology to the diagnosis and treatment of ME/CFS. Her body of work has resulted in more than 85 published papers, brought numerous new researchers into the field, and launched several new areas of study for ME/CFS.
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 increase our capacity to see patients and offer more services.
BHC provides 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.
