A new series that is a collaboration from the New York Times and Netflix is scheduled to air sometime in 2019.

Dr Lisa Saunders, an associate professor of Yale's School of Medicine, will curate each episode of new undiagnosised cases, which will be met head-on by combining global crowdsourcing, social media platforms and established medical experts.

Although the series has already been filmed, is shows detailed unsolved patient cases for you, the viewer to solve. Whether you're a doctor, a patient, or an amateur sleuth, your ideas could potentially help save a life.

Dr Lisa Saunders, a journalist, turned Doctor, and also a New York Times columnist (Diagnosis), was the inspiration behind the TV show House.

"A patient's story is often the best place to find clues. It is our oldest diagnostic tool. And the most reliable. Yet because of Doctors ' just the facts attitude', Doctors often interrupt patients before they tell their full story."

"Doctors interrupted patients 75 percent of the time. In fact, Doctors listened for an average of 16 seconds before interrupting the patients. And once the story was interrupted, patients were unlikely to resume the story."

"Getting a good history is SO important and is a collaborative process. What the patient brings to the process is unique; the particular and private facts of his/her life and illness."

Dr Lisa Saunders also wrote a book on difficult cases she and her colleagues diagnosised called;

Every Patient Tells A Story; Medical Mysteries

While she (or that new series) might have some value but I hold out no hope if Saunders heads the consultant team. She will pick and choose what cases to present as solved, of course.

The more recent Netflix health diagnosis series really clobbered those with lyme big time and made them all look mentally unstable & I could never trust them again to present the truth . . . IMO, also to consider:

Lisa Saunders is very much against recognizing the truth about lyme disease, by the way.

She has neglected to learn at every turn; neglected to give thought to lyme or other tick-borne infections at every turn over the years in her articles at the NYT.

For decades, the NYT, in general, has been very vocal against lyme or - at best - presented it as easy to treat with one simple approach in all but the most rare instance.

The only time Sanders got close conveying its severity was as a consultant with "Dr. House" the TV show with the verbally abusive grump doctor

who found a tick in someone's hair / on their scalp and solved a tough case. As soon as the tick was finally found and pulled off, the miracle cure started with no time talking about treatment. All well, case solved. No treatment, even.

If you are looking for a well -educated doctor I would not consider Dr. Saunders one since she has never taken the time to learn about lyme from the doctors who know - only relying upon the IDSA idea of it all.

But that's what she was taught at Yale about lyme, where they stand strong with IDSA. She's never looked past it.

I wish Dr. Saunders would go - with a fresh, open mind to an ILADS conference - get to know the ILADS doctors, read their books, watch past conference DVDs, etc.

We need journalists who know the depth of the matter. I do not consider her a true journalist since she is so deficient in research and clings to errors regarding lyme / TBD.

Not part of the NYT nor Saunders' group . . . one excellent and very LL medical journalist: Pamela Weintraub. Others could sure learn from her.

Oh, I'm bad !!!!

I did not research Dr Lisa Saunders.
To discredit chronic Lyme is to discredit science.
Another doctor that relies on out-dated proven fallible testing, missing up to 70% of Lyme cases, according to most recent research.

So much for listening to her patients.

We need mandatory physician training in all Tick Borne Infections. 💚

We need new testing approved by the CDC. 💚

We need new treatment protocols and Lyme centers 💚

We need insurance coverage for chronic Lyme. 💚

And last but not least, we need doctors that refused to treat us to apologize. 💚

Thank you Keebler.

Sad, but true.

Our stories are very important and relevant for diagnosis, progress and treatment. It is a big responsibility for us to keep notes and distill our findings for efficient presentation. I believe it can make a huge difference in outcomes.

Sad statistics on doctors listening. Let's make sure we are prepared with something worthy of listening.

I know.....for me this has been a tall order at times.
