What Is Causing Your POTS?
POTS Care, PLLC is the only clinic dedicated to locating and treating the underlying medical causes of POTS, not just the symptoms.
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, Founder and President of Genetic Disease Investigators and world-renowned invisible illness expert and foremost authority on POTS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), vagus nerve disorders, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Dr. Driscoll was disabled by POTS for over 10 years, but is 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
Despite her diagnosis of a genetic problem (Ehlers-Danlos syndrome), 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.
The team at POTS Care will evaluate your case from a different direction than your doctors have! The medical team at POTS Care will evaluate your testing to date, order customized blood work for you, review or order MRI’s if needed, and it can all be done without expensive travel to our clinic! You have already been evaluated by many doctors! What you lack is the brain work involved in your complicated case. This is how we are able to help you virtually. 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
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
You do not need to do a true tilt table test if you haven’t already completed one, but with our help, you 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. …Read More
The Driscoll Approach™
The Driscoll Approach™ 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.
