POTS Care Is The Only Clinic Dedicated To Locating and Treating The Underlying Medical Causes Of POTS

– Not Just The Symptoms

The POTS CARE difference

POTS Care Clinic

POTS Care is the only clinic in the world treating POTS by locating the underlying medical cause(s) of POTS. We do not just treat the symptoms. We are here to get you answers, to lay out a carefully orchestrated plan, and to assist you in carrying it out! We are here to offer support as you work through recovery and return to a normal life. It takes everything — a full package — and that is what we offer at POTS Care.

How Do We Know Where To Start?

Our work is based on the research of Dr. Diana Driscoll — a former POTS patient disabled for over 10 years with POTS, but fully recovered today.

Had Enough Salt?

At POTS Care we find that the traditional treatments for POTS (high doses of salt, beta-blockers, saline infusions, etc) are not sufficient for recovery and can even be damaging to the patient. Instead, we focus all of our efforts at locating the medical problem(s) causing your case of POTS and treat this underlying cause.

“Although I’ve often likened EDS/POTS to feeling as if one were both poisoned and electrocuted simultaneously, most unaffected people are unable to relate to the sense of urgency experienced by patients. Instead, patients are forced to “white-knuckle” overwhelming symptoms, sometimes living hour by hour, unable to escape symptoms through sleep or by lying down.

— Dr. Diana Driscoll

Dr. Driscoll recovered from POTS (and ME/CFS — “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome”) and is working full-time at POTS Care to help others.

Doctor who recovered from POTS

POTS Care’s Clinical Director, Dr. Diana Driscoll, is a former POTS patient (as were her children). Unresponsive to traditional treatment for POTS, she established Genetic Disease Investigators to study this condition. Now fully recovered, she works full-time at POTS Care to help others with this condition. 

POTS Care is a group practice with MD’s, DO’s and OD’s who work under the guidance of Dr. Driscoll. The results of her research, combined with the medical knowledge of the team is a powerful one. If you have ever wanted a team to study your illness and give you answers, you have found that team at POTS Care. 

At POTS Care, it’s personal!

“Patients with POTS usually suffer with so much -- and with little or no validation from their doctors. Even the label of “POTS” does not provide legitimacy for the illness. I remember when I had POTS that I was sick in any position! My fast heart rate was not my worst symptom -- I was completely non-functional, as was my son.

Instead, I view POTS as a symptom of something else, and we need to figure out what that something else is in order to allow recovery.

Identifying the underlying problems also gives patients the validity they need when dealing with doctors and even friends and family. We must dramatically change how this condition is treated. This mission is a personal one for me!”

- Dr. Diana Driscoll

The POTS Care Difference

This Is A Complete Package

At POTS Care our goal is to get you the answers you need as quickly as possible, to not only recover, but to prevent getting this sick again!

If you have developed POTS, there is a reason. We are here to locate that reason, and provide you with everything you need to recover.

We Are The Only Clinic Approaching POTS In This Way

What’s Included In Your Package?

Customized Treatment Plan

POTS Care is not alternative medicine — medications are generally necessary. But after your extensive evaluation, you will have a complete plan laid out in writing, including prescriptions,  …Read More

Biofeedback

Many patients with POTS experience surges of anxiety and/or adrenaline that can worsen their symptoms. These surges have a medical basis (but can appear as panic or anxiety to the uninformed). Because these surges can activate the sympathetic nervous system and worsen POTS …Read More

Support

In most cases of POTS, patients have been sick for quite a while. Normal sleep cycles are a distant memory, some are not sure what they can eat without getting sicker, and others would like to exercise again, but don’t know how or when that is in their best interest …Read More

Autonomic Testing

We do not need to do a true tilt table test in our office, but we will perform a “poor man’s tilt table test” (if possible) to check for general functionality, to see what direction the blood pressure heads when you are vertical, and to see if your oxygen saturation is affected. All of these things can provide more clues to your illness. We will then perform a heart rate variability test and some ocular tests to help round out more of the full autonomic picture. …Read More

Review Medical Records

Most patients with POTS have seen an extraordinary number of doctors! Yet rarely is someone going through these records to help tie together disparate signs and symptoms. No one is looking for what is getting missed …Read More

Evaluate Customized Bloodwork

After reviewing your previous records and signs and symptoms of illness, we will create customized blood work for you. Some tests that you may have had completed previously do not need to be repeated — others need to be monitored more closely …Read More

Ocular Testing

The eyes are the only place in the body that we can look directly at the blood vessels (without looking through tissue). The eyes are also the only place in the body you can view a nerve that is a direct extension of the brain (the optic nerve).  …Read more

2 Months of Follow Up

We work closely with you to answer all of your questions, tweak things as needed, and fine-tune certain medications or supplements. Our goal is to put you back in charge of your health, and we can do so if we teach you as we go! …Read More

Review Signs & Symptoms

We begin with a list of over 200 potential signs and symptoms! These results immediately go into sophisticated spreadsheets and algorithms to tell us where we need to begin to look for answers in your individual case …Read More

Review MRIs

We will either review your previous brain MRI, or order a new one, if it is needed. We will review these images looking for what others have missed. We will show you these images and discuss what they may mean for you and your recovery. With POTS …Read More

The POTS Care Difference

At other doctor’s offices, you come once, receive medication, return in a couple of months, receive more medication, return in a few months, receive more medication AND get referrals to numerous other doctors — where you repeat this same scenario.

There is a better way!

At POTS Care, we offer a complete package and provide everything you need to recover. Additionally, we’ll teach you what we’ve learned about your case and how you can ultimately become the captain of your medical ship again. We do not want you to NEED to return. We are the only POTS clinic set up this way, and we are the only clinic treating the medical causes of POTS.
