LLD in my area?

I live in Newark, DE and am looking for a LLD. I have looked online and made phone calls and it seems no doctors I can locate are taking new patiens? I would appreciate any input...thanks so much.

Re: LLD in my area?

Hi bettysmithers, welcome to the board!

How long have you been sick? It is very important to see a knowledgeable doctor. Many doctors do not understand Lyme and treat with outdated protocols. Lyme needs continuous, aggressive treatment. Besides Lyme, ticks can also transmit several co-infections including Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis (HME & HGE), Bartonella, and Mycoplasma. Many people who have Lyme are co-infected. It is important to be tested for these by a Lyme reputable lab such as IgeneX in Palo Alto, CA.

I do not know of any Lyme doctors in DE. I know of one in Hermitage, PA and two in NJ--in Jackson and West Caldwell. Would you like one of their names?

It is also important to learn as much as possible. I recommend reading "Everything You Need To Know About Lyme Disease (2nd edition)" by Karen Vanderhoof-Forschner and Dr. Burrascano's treatment guidelines. He is one of the top Lyme doctors in the country, and many doctors follow his protocols.

I know its a lo-o-o-ong drive, but my LLMD is Dr. E in Jackson, NJ. I guess that would be 3 -4 hours from you.

She's awesome though. If you want more info, just ask.
