DISCLAIMER: LymeDoc.org provides lists with names and basic contact information for a variety of health care professionals who treat Lyme disease in order to help people seeking medical care and because of the growing need for this type of free service.
We do not judge the professional competence or evaluate the qualifications of health care providers on the lists. We do not endorse any of the providers or the quality of care you may or may not receive. We do not make any specific recommendations. We simply provide a basic list in an effort to help you during your search.
The selection of any health care provider should be made by you and your family after careful consideration. As many know, there is more than one approach when it comes to diagnosing and treating Lyme disease (often a choice between the right way and the Infectious Disease Society of America's way).
Our list contains names of health care professionals who often follow more flexible and individually tailored diagnostic approaches and treatment protocols than those advocated by the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA). IDSA guidelines for the treatment of Lyme disease were originally published in 2000. They were updated in 2006 (very few adjustments made) and have not been updated since. They do not incorporate or consider any of the latest scientific studies published over the past 12 years. LymeDoc.org is not responsible for any incorrect information on this site. We can not reply to any requests for our opinions, discuss a provider's treatment methods, or comment on how professionals practice medicine. If you have questions concerning diagnosis, treatment, insurance, specific protocols, office locations, etc. please contact the providers directly. LymeDoc.org does not receive any monetary or other benefits from anyone to be included on this list. There is also no advertising of people or products on this site.
