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 management manual for patients and health care providers.

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 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.  See the ETeam tab for more details on our services and costs.

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.  To this end I enjoy and appreciate opportunities to provide education and support to other professionals. If you are a health care professional please call me to discuss a patient or arrange for education for your practice or PCN.

After much reflection I have decided to change the way I practice

The big change to my practice is that I will no longer provide one on one continuing care to patients.  Instead I will teach and support patients through group psychotherapy.  This may not be forever, but will be for the foreseeable future.  I have observed that group psychotherapy fosters empowerment and lasting change as patients work towards physical and mental health goals.  By making group psychotherapy a focus, I am able to reach more people more effectively than with an individual care model.  If you live in Alberta but are outside of Calgary consider joining a group through AHS Telehealth.  Call the office for more details.   If you are current patient of the practice and need assistance to transition to other care providers please call the office to arrange a transition appointment.
