The INIM is currently accepting new patients in our Kendall and Davie locations. If you would like to make an appointment, please call 954.262.2850

As of October 1, 2016, the INIM no longer accepts private insurance and 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.

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.

The Institute is directed by Dr. Nancy Klimas, Chair of Clinical Immunology at Nova Southeastern University and is joined by Dr. Irma Rey and Dr. Maria Vera. Along with our 3 physicians, the INIM has 2 full time Registered Nurse Practitioners, and Exercise Physiologist and highly trained Medical Assistants. Our highly trained and knowledgeable staff are here to provide you with the best patient care.

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.
