One of the ways to see if a review is authentic is to see if the reviewer has ever posted before. Many businesses use false positive reviews to build their business. For FFS, every 5 star review is from a person who has never reviewed anything else on insiderpages. To any regular from boards, that is a sign that the business is posting fake reviews.

I have seen many specialist and Fibromyalgia center have been the only Dr.'s that has helped me. Dr. Cudappah has been wonderful during the last few years. They did many blood test to find the underlining cases of my sickness. This is the only way I would of gotten better. The 1st year I did spend lots of money and have gotten many I.V's and now I am much better. I am at about 90% better than I was three years ago. FFC does not take insurance, but the Dr.s who take insurance did not make me better.

Actually, my mother went there, and I have spoken to many patients who went there who say the same thing as that doctor. You, like many, are still being scammed, and Jack B. is exactly right. My mother almost died from their treatments (literally she was in the intensive care unit). So take your steroids and supplements, give them your money, and feel happy that they 'understand' you. Eventually, you will feel like my mother...ripped off, sick, and worse because of them. Good luck, but you have been warned.

As a follow up, the GA medical board has not issued a public order relating to Dr. Bullington of the FFC in Marietta. She is barred from prescribing schedule II drugs for 2 years. Interstingly, she also has to take a pain management class. Interesting that someone who claims to specialize in fibromyalgia is now ordered to take a pain management class by the medical board.

It is doctors like the one who wrote the below review that have made patients like me suffer for years. Unless you have been to this center know the benefits of his treatments why write a stupid review like you did below. Could it be because you have lost patients? Do not judge what patients because we are not following your conventional approach.

This place is a franchise of centers around the country. I am a physician who has seen numerous patients over the years who have been to this place. This place is mostly a scam and I can imagine that the only people who benefit from this are through a "placebo" benefit of a friendly doctor (Cuddepah ) listening to them , and then an array of mostly worthless supplements and weekly IV treatments that most pateints dont even know what is in them. I saw a patient that was taking 50 pills a day , including cortisone at hi levels because she was told she had "adrenal fatigue syndrome". This is a made up term and exists in no reputable textbook of medicine...ever. She had so many steroid side effects from this it was sad. She wasn't any better clinically and was still applying for disability but felt like they "paid attention " ( for $6000/yr). I felt compelled to write this because I don't think this is reputable , above board, or ethical. Don't let the few testimonials on this site fool u.You can see the same thing on late nite infomercials

I went in for CFS, they center found out that I have Lyme and Lead toxicity. Where a miriad of Doctors and test could not find it before. I am not yet at 100% , however, 10 months later I am at 50%. Now this may not sound like much but I was at 5% -10%, bedbound/housebound (unable to drive and too weak to detangle my hair). So at 50% I need a lot of rest and have to go slowly but I have a life again.

The blood work and the tests they run are extensive. I would recommend doing the IGENEX test for lyme right from the begining, this is extra but lyme and CFS/Fibro symptoms are so similar there is really no point waiting . Also add a urine Heavy Metals tests from the begining. I bring this up because these tests were performed later and who knows, maybe I ccould be 75% or 100% better by now.

But please remember, this center found it, after years and years of suffering , they have found the real causes. Dr. Cuddapah is very attentive.

I recommend you work with the Dr and try to stay on top of your treatment, only you know all of your history. It scares me too think of where I might have been had I not found this center. So good luck, hope this review has been helpful.

It all started great... But I've invested a lot of money and time to absolutely no improvement (maybe a little worse) since I started over 6 months ago.
What really gets me is that my last visit with Dr Billington she prescribed a drug for me that was $983.00 a month. Of course my medical plan wouldn't pay for it. My pharmacy called for over a week trying to get Dr Bulllington to prescribe a substitute or call my insurance provider but she would never answer or return calls.
She was also supposed to schedule a 6 week follow up but neglected to do so. When I called abut the appointment they said no appointment was made and it would be weeks until I could see her. I've tried to call the nurse but have been unable to get her.
On top of that, they were supposed to ship a good number of supplements to me but it has been weeks. I was told they were shipping but obviously they haven't.

Dr. Cuddapah is great but the front desk and the rest of the staff needs some help. Ever time I asked a question the front desk lady stated, " I am not sure. I just a temp." I felt like saying with the amount of money I am spending get up and ask. Dr. Cuddapah is 5 stars. He listens to my concerns works with my condition. .He has made me feel like a whole new person.

Unless you have A LOT of money to waste, stay far away from this place! I was a "pay as you go" patient for 6 months, and spent 1000's of dollars there. At my last appointment I got ambushed and was told that if I didn't join one of their very expensive pre-paid plans I couldn't come there anymore. Due to monetary and personal reasons I couldn't commit to a yearly plan, so I was "banned" from the clinic. They are not the nice caring people that they pretend to be.

I recently went for a consult. I expected for them to want to take blood then decide on treatment options based on the results. Instead, I got a sales pitch, for a $6000/year plan, that they wanted to be paid up front before they did anything. So if you don't have that money to hand over, don't bother.

My wife & I have been driving 6 hours each way from Tallahassee to see Dr. Cuddapah since Fall 2008. I have had Chronic Fatigue & Immune Dysfunction Syndrome since 1995. In 9/30/09 we found that it is due to lifetime exposure to lead; my level of lead was found to to be 31, compared to only 5 for the general population. These people have tested me, have helped me understand my complex medical illness, & can help you get much better over time. The clinical staff & doctors are amazingly competent, are incredibly thorough, take copious notes, actually listen & ask attentive follow-up questions, take blood tests on-site, & tailor your treatment to fit your symptoms. And they treat the causes, not just the symptoms! If you feel exhausted, lethargic, pain, "brain fog", & are unable to get out of bed to go to the bathroom or to fix a bite to eat, AND your doctor(s) run(s) tests that say you're in the "normal" range, then get someone to take you to this clinic. You may be very sick, you're hormones may be radically low, & your doctor(s) may have forgotten that YOU know what is abnormal for you. Please don't be miserable any longer; these people can really help you. And they do have a payment plan through GE, so don't let that stop you & lead you to get worse & worse & become as sick as I was. God bless & best wishes.

Huge disappointment! It's quite a difficult task for my wife to get there for her appointments. Recently, she was delayed by unusual traffic conditions and arrived 9 minutes late. They turned her away saying that the Dr. was already behind schedule! They made my wife pay for their own internal inability to manage their practice efficiently! Instead of helping her, they made her turn around and make the long difficult drive back home. She spent three uncomfortable hours total between driving and being refused in the office. It's hard to accept that they have a mission to treat her illness when they have such blatant disregard for her efforts to seek help! They could've done something to accommodate her relatively minor late arrival... Especially since they themselves were already running behind! This is not what we expected from a professional medical organization!!!

The Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Center of Atlanta has been a Godsend for me. After a serious illness, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia by an internist and told that I would have to live with it. I began going to the Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Center about six months ago and in all truthfulness I am feeling and sleeping better than I have in almost three years. The doctor and nurses are very attentive and listen to what you have to say, and then tailor the program to fit you. They require an extensive bloodwork panel initially that is used to help identify problem areas for each individual, and the lab is on site so all bloodwork can be drawn immediately. It is processed off site, however, so results from your blood draws will take about three weeks. The doctor is great about addressing your concerns and listening to your thoughts, and everyone is friendly. The charges can be pricy and the center doesn't file any claims with insurance - that's your job. Claim forms are included with your receipt at the end of each visit but you are individually responsible for submitting claims to your insurance company. There's plenty of parking and traffic usually isn't a problem, but if you don't live in Marietta or close by, schedule your appointment for the morning so you won't get caught in rush hour traffic.
