Sunil Sood, MD. Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine, Hempstead, NY
Pediatric infectious diseases with Cohen Children’s Hospital
QUOTE-  "Some activists portray Lyme disease, a geographically limited tick-borne infection, as a disease that is insidious, ubiquitous, difficult to diagnose, and almost incurable; they also propose that the disease causes mainly non-specific symptoms that can be treated only with long-term antibiotics and other unorthodox and unvalidated treatments. Similar to other antiscience groups, these advocates have created a pseudoscientific and alternative selection of practitioners, research, and publications and have coordinated public protests, accused opponents of both corruption and conspiracy, and spurred legislative efforts to subvert evidence-based medicine and peer-reviewed science. The relations and actions of some activists, medical practitioners, and commercial bodies involved in Lyme disease advocacy pose a threat to public health." Source Here

Lyme Disease Diagnostic Center @ the New York Medical College in Valhalla, NY, including, but not limited to:  Gary Wormser, Robert Nadelman and John Nowokowski.  

The treatment guidelines the NY Medical College doctors follow (Infectious Disease Society of America- IDSA) were published in 2000, slightly updated in 2006 (minor changes), and are currently 11 years old. 

These old guidelines do not utilize any of the current science or studies generated over the past decade. They were removed from the National Guideline Clearinghouse, however, they continue to be strongly supported by NY Medical College doctors.  

An investigation by the CT Attorney General found some of the IDSA guideline authors were riddled with conflicts of interest.  (Gary Wormser, Raymond Dattwyler, Robert Nadelman, John Nowakowski were authors of the IDSA Guidelines- 2000 and/or 2006 version- and are, or were, at NY Medical College.)   

"The IDSA's 2006 Lyme disease guideline panel undercut its credibility by allowing individuals with financial interests -- in drug companies, Lyme disease diagnostic tests, patents and consulting arrangements with insurance companies -- to exclude divergent medical evidence and opinion."
