    Shouldn't that be-

    "Helsinki University Hospital's Outpatient Clinic for Functional Disorders treats ME/CFS patients badly?"

    Not terribly surprising I suppose.

    Anyone know what DNRS stands for in this context?

    Is the "Head Physician" a psychiatrist?

    I was able to guess the NRS without even knowing the rest. Gupta was the clue.

    I was going to say that they need to pour cold water on this idea,and then beat it with sticks, but they might think it a sign of approval.

    They say the more symptoms a person has the more likely it is they have a psychological disorder. I have a better theory. The more diseases a treatment claims to cure the more likely it is to be quackery.

    DNRS is just another in a long line.

    I noticed they've added "Chronic Post-COVID syndrome" to their list of 'relief from'.
