About Us

If you would like to make an appointment at our Davie and Kendall locations, please call 954.262.2850.

As of October 1, 2016, the INIM will no longer accept private insurance. All patients are required to pay for their visit at the time of service. If the patient has insurance, the patient will be responsible for submitting the paid invoice of the visit to their insurance company for any reimbursement.

Thank you for your interest in the Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine.

Who We Help

The INIM is a premier research and treatment center for chronic fatigue syndrome 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.  Diseases such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV/AIDs), fibromyalgia, autism spectrum disorder, lyme disease and Gulf War Syndromes are some of the illnesses that are treated at the institute.
