Looking for LLMD in or around GA that uses IGeneX for testing. Any assistance appreciated. I am in North GA but will travel if recommended. Thanks!

There really aren't any lyme doctors in your area or surrounding states. See this recent post asking for the same as you:

http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=025353;p=0

See Support Groups on the left side of the page. You can contact those around you and find out where folks go for treatment.

If you are willing to come to the D.C. area, you can get good treatment. You can do telephone appointments after the first one or 2 appointments.

Welcome to Lymenet! PM sent for FL & NC.

You need to be evaluated and treated by a Lyme-literate doctor (LLMD). Non LLMDs have no clue about this horrible disease or its complex treatment!

None in GA. They are far and few between, unfortunately. You need to go where they are.

Also, most LLMDs do not accept insurance due to the politics surrounding this horrible disease. Read poster TF's explanation, "Why Lyme Doctors Don't Take Insurance":

http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi/topic/2/15615?#000005

When you call for an appointment, ask if there are any cancellations or a waiting list. Patients have been able to get in sooner by doing this.

Check the online state Lyme groups at:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/GeorgiaLyme/info

Maybe they can help you.

Some more resources for you (including Support Groups):
www.lyme-aware.org/georgia.html
https://www.facebook.com/groups/GAlymeleague/

http://www.lymenet.org/SupportGroups/UnitedStates/Georgia/

The top LLMD, Dr. H, has written a new book entitled, "Why Can't I Get Better?". It is an excellent source of information.

Also read "Cure Unknown" by Pamela Weintraub. Check your local library or buy it used on Amazon.

I wish ppl would stop telling newbies that there are no LLMD's in the south. There is an awesome LLMD in AL. I was extremely ill and he cured me. He has researched LD for over 30 years and is a real LLMD.

I was on lymenet for several years, but hardly ever get on here anymore because I am well and living life. Occasionally I get on here to try and help ppl in the south that are looking for a good Lyme doctor.

Please PM me if you want to get contact info.
