Re: any info on Drs or Health center of America in Kansas City MO

Hi indianagirl, welcome to the board!

Do you have Lyme disease? Are you looking for a doctor? I have never heard of this clinic. The closest Lyme doctor I know of to this area is in Springfield, MO. If you would like the name let me know.

Re: any info on Drs or Health center of America in Kansas City MO

still looking for answers, I'm not sure Dr's say well you dont look sick but I've had the symptoms for several years my Dr says no one in IN has it. Although 2 people were in our local paper that tested pos. Alocal Dr finally diagnosed and sent to this center and yhey got IV antibiotics daily for 3 months said thethey have to stay locally in KC the dr's name was Carol Reyser I beleive and said they treat 500-700 patients with it per year. By the way one of the women who has it is a local nurse practioner. Thanks Susan

Re: any info on Drs or Health center of America in Kansas City MO

Hi indianagirl. Lyme disease is in every state, including IN. I don't know how doctors think they can "know" it does not exist in their state! Ticks don't cross state lines eh?

People who have Lyme and need IV antibiotics ususally can administer them themselves at home. There should be no reason to have to stay out of state for extended periods of time for treatment. Treatment needs to be open-ended. Three months may not be long enough.

There is an excellent Lyme doctor in Hermitage, PA and one in Springfield, MO. If you would like one of their names, let me know.

indianagirl

Welcome to the board. I hope you are able to see a Lyme literate MD soon and determine if you have lyme. Do not delay even if your symptoms subside as the longer you have lyme the more difficult to treat and the more lengthly the recovery.

Most Dr do not know about lyme so it is important to seek out a Dr who is knowledgable about this very tricky disease. Many members here have seen many Drs who have dismissed the idea of lyme, only to find out years later they have it.

It's funny you mention Dr Ryser as I have never heard of her until this week when a friend e-mailed me that her neighbor went to Dr Ryser in KS. We are in NJ and I haven't had a chance yet to call this friend of a friend and get the details. I was wondering why they went to KS from NJ. We have several LLMDs in the NY, NJ, CT & PA areas.

I will let you know what I find out when I talk to them.

Hope you feel better soon, and keep us posted.

I contacted their clinic. My impression was that they are leading edge, but costly.

You can get transfer factor online. It's one thing to be taking for immune system support.
