Dr. David Bell graduated from Harvard and later Boston University School of Medicine. He completed specialty training in pediatrics with a subspecialty in pediatric behavior and developmental disorders. He practices family medicine in private practice in Lydonville, N.Y. Approximately half of his patients suffer from CFS, FM and orthostatic intolerance.

In 1985 clusters of a mysterious illness began to breakout in the US. Some were located in the communities surrounding Lyndonville, NY. These outbreaks prompted scientific studies which continue today. The mysterious illness has been identified as CFS. Since that time Dr. Bell has played a prominent role in caring for CFS/FM patient communities.

Dr. Bell has published and contributed to numerous scientific papers on CFS. He is the Chairman of the Advisory Committee for CFS of the Department of Health and Human Services and serves on the International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome board. He is an Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of NY at Buffalo. Dr. Bell’s publications include, A Disease of a Thousand Names (1988) and The Doctor’s Guide to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (1990).
