          Hunter-Hopkins Center

The Hunter-Hopkins Center is one a few recognized centers in the United States that specializes in chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.  We provide consultation, testing, and treatment. Management is coordinated with the primary physician. 

Dr. Charles Lapp is board certified in both internal medicine and pediatrics, and has over twenty years experience with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.  He is one of the pioneering physicians who first brought CFS to national attention, and is widely recognized as an authority.  Dr. Lapp has written and spoken extensively on CFS and FM, and has worked with NIH and the CDC since 1985 to study these conditions.

Dr. Laura Black is board certified in family practice, and was also certified in medical acupuncture at UCLA.  She brings a “wholistic” approach to the patient with chronic illness, although Hunter-Hopkins adheres to conservative, outcome-based concepts in treatment.
