Lucinda Bateman, M.D.
Dr. Lucinda Bateman completed her BS and MS at Brigham Young University (BYU), attended the John Hopkins School of Medicine, returned to the University of Utah for Internal Medicine residency, and became certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in 1991. She started a small private group practice in 1991 and practiced General Internal Medicine until 2000.
During this time, she proctored many students as Adjunct Volunteer Clinical Faculty for the University of Utah, including nurse practitioners, physician assistants (PA), medical students and residents, and was active on the staff at LDS Hospital. She was awarded Teacher of the Year four times while teaching in the Utah PA (Physician's Assistant) program. In 2000, she was one of three Utah internists chosen by her peers in Top Doctors, a national publication.
Throughout her career, Dr. Bateman's interest has gradually become more focused on the diagnosis and management of unexplained chronic fatigue, ME/CFS and FM, inspired in part by the silent suffering of her sister, Shauna Bateman Horne, who had CFS for 15 years before she was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2000 and died from complications of a stem cell transplant in May of 2001.
In 2000, Dr. Bateman opened the Fatigue Consultation Clinic and has since evaluated more than a thousand patients with chronic fatigue. She has lectured extensively on issues relating to chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. She has served on the boards of the Easter Seals of Utah, The International Association of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (IACFS/ME) and The CFIDS Association of America. She is the co-founder and a board member of OFFER (The Organization for Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Education and Research).
Dr. Bateman's goal of establishing the Fatigue Consultation Clinic and the non-profit organization OFFER is to encourage a more thoughtful evaluation process, the sharing of information with patients and medical providers and cooperative research efforts aimed at understanding the cause(s) of and developing treatments for ME/CFS and FMS.
