The consequences of missing a Lyme diagnosis can be devastating — physically, emotionally and financially. Many patients become too sick to work. They lose their jobs, their homes, even relationships with loved ones. Those with chronic Lyme disease often lose hope of ever getting better. As a physician, working with these patients, identifying a correct diagnosis and treatment plan, and seeing many return to living healthy, productive lives has been extremely rewarding.
I hope this site will serve as a valuable resource to practitioners interested in learning more about such a complex, poorly understood disease. The information I share with you on this site is based on published peer-reviewed literature, material from presentations given during medical conferences and on my personal clinical observations made after treating all stages of the disease, from early onset to chronic. The clinicians and researchers interviewed for the site are experts in their field.
