Angry rude judgemental ...disrespectful...

I have never known anyone nor seen any doctor as nasty as this man and to think he wrote a book on bedside manners with CFS is just Criminal. It almost sounds unreal that anybody could be this nasty but he is. After 30 plus years of severe CFS he put me on a drug that gave me quality of life finally after searching the globe. I am published on CFS I ran a support group of five hundred people internationally online and well-versed in the subject and finally was happy with quality. In life certainly not a drug abuser when he took it away and now I am a tortured ball in Agony in bed where I started at 21 years of age. He gave no explanation nor alternatives as far as medication or other doctors and abruptly walked out the room yes he is that nasty ... and to give life after decades for then eight years only to take it away is beyond words. how dare he have no conscience and leave me like this please . Obviously he does not care

Dr natelson is now in NYC, not NJ. He is amazing! Worth the trip into the city to see him. I saw other CFS specialists but he is the only one who has actually helped me gain some strength.

Great doctor

My husband and I have been in Dr. Natelson's care for about 20 years. We've found Dr. Natelson to be extraordinarily knowledgeable, highly intelligent and exceptionally caring. He has always taken our health issues very seriously. His concern for his patients is genuine, and he is excellent at follow up. He is clearly an expert in his field. His diagnosis is always "spot-on" and his treatment plans effective. Although it is not always easy to get an appointment, and the waiting time in his office can sometimes be lengthy, he is worth it. He is an excellent doctor and it is a privilege to be his patient.
