How do you find a doctor who specializes in Lyme disease?

What kind of doctor do I see? If I have + rheumatoid factor and I have thyroid problems is there a specific doctor I should be seeing? Neurologist? Any ideas?

Thanks.

Cindy

Re: How do you find a doctor who specializes in Lyme disease?

Hi Cindy. There are not many Lyme knowledgeable doctors. In my opinion, it is best to see one who has been recommended by a Lyme patient or Lyme support group. I do not know of any Lyme doctors in OH, but there is one in Hermitage, PA who comes very highly recommended: Dr. Chandra Swami. I hope you can get an appointment with him soon.

You may need to see a separate doctor for the thyroid, either an endocrinologist or a practitioner with thyroid experience.
