I am trying to help my brother-in-law get tested for lyme in Austin. He is showing symptoms & lives near a bunch of deer. Unfortuneately he has been unable to find someone willing & knowledgeable to test & diagnose him. He tried contacting the nurse practioner that folks have recommended on this site but she won't diagnose, only treat. Can someone help?!

I don't know who gave you this information, but it is not true. Please call her office again. Ask for a new Lyme patient package. Once they get that back, her nurse will call to schedule a new patient appointment.
I have confirmed this information with her. You may want to let her know who told you this so she can be sure that this erroneous information does not continue to be given to prospective patients.
