*** Due to the high number of complaints from
Lyme patients and their families we do not recommend
Johns Hopkins when dealing with a Lyme diagnosis or treatment.***
NOTE- The treatment guidelines Johns Hopkins 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 consider or include 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 promoted by Johns Hopkins' and infectious disease doctors.
An investigation by the CT Attorney General found the guideline authors (some from Hopkins) were riddled with conflicts of interest.
"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."
