Dr. Ellie Stein and her assistant (Kathy) bring knowledge and expertise, capable teaching and explaining, and kindness and caring to her patients. I rarely find these characteristics in the medical profession. She is a medical asset and inspiring role model to patients with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.

She is internationally known for her knowledge of ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, her research and Educator at U of C and her presentations at International Symposiums. I have volunteered my help for one in Calgary. It was 1st class. She provided support groups for patients, she provided educational series to teach her patients how to best care for themselves since there is no cure. Making lifestyle changes to keep yourself as healthy as possible is key. Medications for the symptoms are the main treatments. She's moved towards research to help us all even more. She's the most passionate and devoted Doctor to helping for these illnesses. I believe she will have a school named after her or statue or something to remember her throughout time for her work. I was bed ridden for 2 years and I've not gone back after 8 years. I have the 1st 2 diagnosis and other diseases possibly related.||Respond|

She deals with Fibromyalgia, and is very kind, yet firm. I have great respect for her, and the care she gave me, helped me out when there was noone here at all. She always listened to me, and never made me feel like she was above me, like we were equal.I think she just does consults but is very intelligent and does a lot of research. I wish she was my current pychiatrist, but I don't live in Calgary anymore, but may stop in to say hi the next time I have to go!||Respond|

||12/5/06||4||5||5||Trained in psychiatry, specializing in Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia and related complications. A highly sought-after doctor, she is extremely knowledgable when it comes to FM/CFS, and is always up to date on the most current treatments and studies. Also compassionate, she is willing to take patients complaints seriously, something that is sadly lacking with FM/CFS, even in todays world. Though difficult to get an appointment with her because of high demand, she also offers a very good email newsletter that often has interesting new info in it, a great idea if you are interested in her field of expertise. Highly recommended, but we warned of a long waiting list to see her.||Respond|
