Who We Are

Created in 2012, the Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine (INIM) operates in a patient-oriented environment that is committed to providing customized treatment plans with thorough followup and patient review.  As a result, our patients receive comprehensive care that is personally tailored for their best result. Our highly trained and knowledgeable staff are here to provide you with the best patient care.

Who We Help

The INIM is a premier research and treatment center for chronic fatigue syndrome, Gulf War illness, and other related neuro-immune disorders. The term neuro-immune disease refers to a group of illnesses that are the result of acquired dysregulation of both the immune system and the nervous system, often resulting in lifelong disease and disability. Symptoms may include mild to severe cognitive impairment, disordered sleep, severe headache, swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, malaise, postural orthostatic tachycardia, painful nerves, joints and or muscles, abdominal pain, nausea, and unusual fatigue. These diseases most often follow an infectious or flu-like illness that does not fully resolve after standard treatment or over a typical course of time.
