Eleanor Stein MD FRCP(C)

Welcome to my website: www.eleanorsteinmd.ca

This website will provide you with information about my practice, access to recent newsletters, publications and presentations and a way to purchase “Let Your Light Shine Through” a manual for patients and health care providers. The manual reflects my experience that self management is the most effective “treatment”.

I am  a psychiatrist in private practice in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Calgary.

I have worked for the past 16 years exclusively with patients with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I offer medical diagnosis and treatment as well as individual and group psychotherapy for people with ME/CFS, FM and MCS.

I am the founder of the ETeam, the only multidisciplinary team in Canada offering objective assessment of cognitive, exercise and sensory function in people with ME/CFS, FM, MCS or a history of toxic exposure.

I have been involved in a number of research projects on the autonomic nervous system, exercise capacity and infection in ME/CFS. My career objective is that every patient in Canada with ME/CFS, FM and MCS will have access to timely, accurate diagnosis and compassionate, evidence based treatment within the Canadian publicly funded health care system.

This website reflects my personal style, minimalist with no advertisements, special effects or social media links; just useful information. I have faith that those who will benefit from the contents will find it.  I hope that you will be one of those who will benefit from the collected experience of my patients which is reflected on this website. Thanks for taking the time to browse.  Please notify me if anything on this website isn’t working.

I will be taking a partial leave from Sept 5th for 4 – 6 months.

During this time I will continue to facilitate all the current groups and  will continue to accept referrals for the PEG and Curing Persistent Pain groups. New groups being offered during this time include the Sleeping Soundly group and a group for the partners and caretakers of individuals with ME/CFS, FM and MCS.

The office will be open during limited hours for administrative requests.
To avoid a backlog, the office is  closed to all new individual referrals until the end of 2017 or further notice. 

Please see the News Page for more details.
