Doctor Sarah Myhill is a British doctor running her own specialist M.E. clinic in Knighton, Powys LD7 1SL, Wales, United Kingdom. Her web site is an extensive resource of articles and information based on her treatment of patients. The website runs to 920 webpages and has had over 6 million individual visits.
Dr Myhill's view is that Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is characterized by a cellular metabolic mitochondrial dysfunction and has published several studies. Dr Myhill has treated in excess of 10,000 CFS/ME sufferers over her 30 year career.

Clinical Practice[edit | edit source]
Dr Myhill has an experienced staff supporting her clinical practice. For individuals unable to visit in person staff will coordinate with the individual's primary care provider, will send lab kits for blood draw to be analyzed by Dr Myhill. She produces detailed analysis of blood work, provides recommendations and will discuss cases by telephone. Blood test analysis provides measures of ATP production and mitochondrial efficiency based upon her published research. While other physicians seem to understand her analytical methods, few, if any, are comfortable commenting on their significance. For decades, Dr Myhill has prioritized patient support and treatment results over independent corroboration.
Complaints[edit | edit source]
Dr Myhill has been the subject of complaints to the General Medical Council. A recent Freedom of Information Act request confirmed that Dr Myhill is the most investigated doctor in the history of the GMC. She has been subject to in excess of 30 investigations in the last 15 years. None of the complainants against Dr Myhill were patients. All complaints against her have been dropped and she practises with a full unrestricted medical licence.
