Hi. I am new here and have many, many questions. First, I would like to know if anybody can tell me specific doctors who test and treat the partners/spouses of patients?

My LLMD does not believe Lyme and co-infections are sexually transmitted and he costs a fortune so do not want to send my partner to him/her. We are in the PA area.

I would love to hear your experiences with this too if any of you have been through this with your partner.

I'm sure any spouse would have the pay the same amount their partner would.

Perhaps his PCP would sign off on Igenex testing?

you mean that a dr would just treat a partner without testing????

NO WAY, not in PA !!! at least not near where I live. they don't believe a tick has lyme here unless it's a "tiny one called a deer tick". UGH...


they don't think many people have it and would have to take another 100 years to admit it could be sexually transmitted. this is just from my personal experience. 45+ drs in about 20 years. all pretty much dummies when it comes to tick disease, and this is in one of the top states for new cases annually!!!!

best of luck. I hope you have better luck.

and welcome! sorry, don't mean to sound negative . I am just sick and tired of being lied to and dummed down

Find an LLMD who does believe it can be transmitted via bodily fluids and have your partner make an apt. & get tested .
